Race, culture and language are all totally different things.

Am I entitled to see some one of my own Race, my own culture or just someone who speaks the same language?

I know this will result in some people's heads exploding
I remember being taught that there are actually three races: mongoloid;negroid & caucasian. This was part of my sociology studies.

Just thought I would add to the debate.

Yes, all sorts of things used to be taught but have since been utterly discredited. For example, Darwin taught us that women are much like children - intellectually inferior to men who he described as being more evolutionarily advanced than women. Anthropologists at the time carried this idea on asserting that women's brain were a bit like animals ... people always think science produces objective 'facts', until you show them how often in the past it has produced biases designed to subjugate ...

Laters.
I have really enjoyed reading this thread and all the views but sorry if I wanted to live in a country based on history and traditions I would go to China, Greece or quite possibly stay in the UK.

You mean, being able to frequently enjoy onion soup mix dip and burnt processed sausages on white bread slices isn't enticing you to come and explore traditional New Zealand culture?

You know, you can probably have a taste of NZ cuisine wherever you are. Just pop into the nearest KFC or McDonald's.

For the more discerning there's take away roast dinners and Speights Old Dark. By the way the Fijiian Indians are far worse for racism IMO

I agree. There's all this fuss about the history and traditions and in all honestly they're not at all interesting. It's certainly not why anyone moves here. I can't think of another country with history and traditions as dull as here.

NZ is the last land mass on earth to be colonised by humans, and the earliest evidence of Maori culture is only about 800 years ago. The British presence is pretty recent too, so it hasn't really had a chance to figure itself out. I think that's why so many icons of Kiwiana are products of 50's kitch and mass production, like the jandal, the tomato sauce bottle, L & P, gumboots, etc. Also explains why there really isn't any traditional food. Maori had their traditional foods, but it was a subsistance diet. Today's NZ kumara are heavily crossed with American varieties, so they're not quite what Maori ate in the old days.

I don't know, I would've thought at least some people wouldn't think getting drunk on the weekends is dull.

It could be worse, KFC could be serving Kiwi Onion Dip Burgers .





Oops my mistake, they already are.
