The high rates of child abuse among Maori can be traced back to colonisation, an academic tells Florence Kerr for the Faces of Innocents project.
Nearly half of all children in the child victim toll are Maori.
There’s a reason for that, says Waikato Associate Professor Leonie Pihama. It’s called colonisation.
It’s a Problem with the person and how they have been treated by their parents.
If it was a white mans issue, then more white would be on the list.
Maori need to stand up and ADMIT it’s a problem with them, Then they can move forward and fix the problem.
Funny how they like White Mans, MONEY (they get for not working), clothes, Cars etc.
Maori are More Violent that most others, and they need to blame themselves for the problems. Not walk around with a chip on their shoulder to blame others for their short falls.
Professor Leonie Pihama is an idiot, and her statement is RACIST.
