A comment on the Crafar decision
But this makes NZ look like a bunch of inbred hillbillies who don’t want to engage with the world, seem determined to make normal commercial activity as difficult as possible, and who are petrified by Asian people. Surely even places like Alabama aren’t as backward and racist as the NZ of Shearer, Peters, and Norman?
No doubt all the usual commenters who dispute NZ being racist will immediately decry this comment, as will all those who hate business and deny the need for inward investment. Yet merely reading the comments on many posts across the blogosphere and briefly listening to talkback comments will substantially corroborate the comment.
