  • Legal Beagle: New Zealand's most racist law,

    These old laws are not applied now. I would have thought that the most racist laws would be those that give benefits and privileges to Maori (or Pacific Islanders) alone: in elections (separate electorates), universities (quotas and other preferential treatment), health (additional funding for Maori, over and above the normal funding for all New Zealanders), education (schools get more money if they have a higher percentage of Maori students), welfare (additional government funding for welfare assistance for Maori); local and regional government (special non elected advisory boards or representatives, based on race alone), and cash and other settlements (the never-ending full and final settlements). Be careful what you wish for, Mr Edgeler!
