A day after a Sunday Star Times piece about how racism is getting worse in New Zealand comes the apparent proof.
You can’t read anything scientific into a self-selecting online poll, but there’s no reason to think that someone would bother deliberately skewing this one. And that means at least 6500 people (out of 11600 – 56%) have agreed with the notion that landlords should be allowed to be racist in selecting their tenants. Decide that just because someone’s skin is black, brown or yellow, they don’t want them here.
Everyone’s a little bit racist, but racist enough to agree with that proposition? Do we have a problem as a nation?
