Kiwis Love For Americans Invariably Ends in Attempted Murder

US Basketballer Tyler Amaya was racially abused and viciously beaten up by a bunch of locals in Dunedin, New Zealand, on Sunday.

The American basketballer plays for the Otago Nuggets suffered serious concussion,  as well as a black eye and a nasty gash to the back of his head.

“Coach Alf Arlidge said US import Tyler Amaya was socialising with team members in Dunedin when one of them was subjected to racial taunts by a group of youths. He said Amaya was then king-hit from behind and suffered serious concussion, as well as a black eye and a cut to the back of his head.” Media reported.

Arlidge conformed that the attack, which took place on George Street near the Octagon, was completely unprovoked.

“It makes you wonder what the heck’s going on, unfortunately, on the streets of Dunedin when we tell everyone it’s a safe place to come and live,” Arlidge said.

“I’m really disappointed. These guys are guests in our country and city and they shouldn’t have to go through this.”

Amaya has since filed a complaint with police, but he would be naive to believe that the racist New Zealand police are any better than the thugs who attacked him.

“Arlidge said Amaya only has a 50 per cent chance of playing in Saturday’s derby against the Southland Sharks in Dunedin.” The report added.

“Obviously it’s disrupted our practice this week. He probably won’t practice again tonight. The doctor’s going to have another look at him on Wednesday, see how it is with his concussion… obviously he’s got stitches in the back of his head.”
