From New Zealand:
“My dad divorced my mum and married a lovely Maori lady.
“They started a new family. I now have half brothers that are Maori.
“Yet, some Maori tell me I should be thankful Maori let me live in their country and that I should be paying Maori rent, and that NZ belongs to Maori.
“Apparently, I should be OK with my half-brothers owning our local beaches, foreshore, and seabeds and I should go cap in hand to my own brothers asking for permission to access my local beaches. Apparently, my half-brothers should own my drinking water, too, because their skin is a little browner than mine.
“I don’t understand this. I thought we were all supposed to be equal and colour blind. What am I missing?”
