"If the Maori get it, we want it too."

That's the rallying cry of The Pakeha Party, a new group which stands for "equal rights for pakeha" - and its founder David Ruck claims there's no racism involved.

The group was borne out of Mr Ruck's opposition to Mana's recent policy announcement of a new Maori home loan scheme.

I bet this is going to be labeled as racist.

You can bet your bottom dollar.

It'll be seen as right-wing, fascist, neo-nazism.

More racist, less racist or equally racist in comparison to either the Mana or Maori party?

Now the million dollar question is do you think the Maori party is also racist? 






Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

This Pakeha Party: "We Stand for equal rights for Pakeha"

Whats so racist about that? Nobody is suggesting more rights?

Both Maori and Mana Parties are always talking about more rights for just Maori. Racist if you ask me.
