Privilege

Jamie Whyte is showing incredible political naievity raising issues of legal privileges for Maori. Had he raised objections about privilege in general he could have retained some degree of credibility.
Whyte ignores the fact that privilege is endemic across all forms of society.
Try telling a child brought up in Raetihi that they have equal privileges to those children brought up in the leafy suburbs of our major cities.
It would be insulting.
All political parties pander for support. The trick is to find the key to 51% of the electorate.
By narrowly targetting their audience and holding the balance of power the Maori Party has been able to acheive certain privileges for their constituency.
They may seem unfair but are they any less fair than those laws that have enabled an increasingly small number of people to retain a greater proportion of the country's wealth?
By drawing attention only to Maori privilege Whyte opens himself up to criticisms of racism.
He could do well to point out to the electorate that Winston's immigration tirades are at complete odds to his professed goal of not working with race based political parties.
Excluding the rest of the world from access to living in this paradise is racism on a global scale.
The liberal constituency that Whyte seeks to represent might respond more positively to a position that distinguishes ACT from the hypocrisy of NZ First, than any continuing battle in the media with one of New Zealands iconic sports heroes.   
Maori privilege is incidental, but privilege of any kind must be continually monitored.

Everybody should have right privileges in life, it’s sad that Maori has some issues about illegal privilege. The court should give it to Maori because this is his right. This is sad that to know illegal privilege is happening in our country, can the court please do action of this because this situation is so hard for every victim. So I suggested that everybody should do and respect what is right for each other. If you notice that you lost your privilege in any scenario, please contact some justice for it.
