MAORI: Probably the Most Oppressed People in the World

The justice system discriminates against Maori, says Maori Affairs Minister Pita Sharples.

There are “very serious issues” that leads to the high imprisonment rate for Maori, he said.

“The over-representation of Maori begins at the apprehension stage and gradually increases through prosecution, conviction and sentencing to custody.”

“Maori are apprehended for at least three times the number of offences as Europeans and receive fewer warnings, cautions or diversions than Europeans.”

Citing a report published in 2007, Dr Sharples, a co-leader of the Maori Party, said Maori were 11 times more likely to be remanded in custody than Europeans awaiting court appearance or sentencing, adding that Maori received about twice as many custodial sentences as Europeans.

    This is what a British colonist does, wherever he goes. It would only be surprising if such a thing did not occur in the New Zealand colony.

    It is British imperial policy world wide. A causal glance at the history of or current status of anyplace they invaded and ruled will reveal similar things, be it the natives of Canada and North America, Australia or South Africa to name a few.

    I am certain an inspection of New Zealand will also reveal the Maori get second class (if any) health care, substandard and likely segregated schools, minimal participation in politics, open discrimination in housing, and other such things as are reported in Canada or Australia even today.
