When I was a drug addict(this is years ago now) I messaged half a dozen close mates and borrowed money and never paid them back.

Some things you can fix(pay a person back), other times, people just don't want to know you anymore.

Hard pill to swallow, but life goes on.

Where's the evidence that the show is racist?

This write up looks good, but there's no stats there so who could say?
There's a whole heap of information & stats here, page 51 has a section on the ethnicity of offenders on the show.

Quote:
Summary
Police Ten 7, in common with other international police-based reality shows (Oliver, 1994;2003; Oliver & Armstrong,1998; Doyle, 2003; Kooistra et al, 1998; Mastro & Robinson,2000) functions to present one construction of reality which closely resembles the known realities of policing in some limited aspects but which is not reflective of reality in many others. Key findings presented in this chapter were the disproportionate depictions of offence types which echoed the findings of similar international research (Entman, 1992; Oliver, 2003; Mastro & Robinson; 2000). There were significant differences in the character portrayals of various ethnicities, specifically an over-representation of non-white characters as offenders and an under-representation of non white characters as police. Furthermore, non-white offenders were commonly featured in crime stories which related to violent offending while white offenders were commonly featured in crime stories about drug and antisocial and traffic offending.
And LS is right, it's difficult to show racism to someone who still doesn't understand what racism is.

It has the potential to be racist sure.

Ok, reading the articles linked earlier... That is exactly what is happening.
Too many incidents shown involving brown people and not white people.

So, yeah racist.

Hmmm, the Shows producers are claiming that it is what they see when out with the patrols. And that it is an accurate representation.
So that therefore their show isn't racist its just reflecting society.

Maybe they do need to film more in areas which are less brown dominated. So their show reflects more of NZ than just South Auckland?
I do vaguely remember there being episodes based in Dunedin & central Otago. Or maybe that was motorway patrol or something.

I'm sorry that you feel compelled to judge people by the colour of their skin. That is pretty terrible. I don't and never will. I judge people based on their character.

Thanks for the intel re: that report. I could only view the abstract. It's still very qualitative.

this is interesting. If the makers of the TV show only sent camera crews along with Pakeha cops and never with brown cops, that would be... problematic. IF.

I don't watch it a lot, but I do remember instances of Asian officers attending calls (to the point of me thinking "Cool, diversity working"), and when it looks like a big white cop is in the picture, he usually turns out to have ta moko tattooed on his forearms.

Am I alone in this observation?

I even watched a documentary program just last night where there were two front line officers (albeit both white, but one possibly LGBTQ) being managed by a Sergeant Ruawai Maaka.

What you're saying is you're special. You're born and raised in a racist society, but you, you're exempt.

I mean, when I first started going to school and my parents told me that I shouldn't drink from the taps cause that's where Maoris drink from, I knew they were stupid. But to avoid picking up ALL the subtle racist messaging of our society. I'd have to be pretty fucking special.

Which I guess you think are you xor. How convenient for you.

Of course, even if I were special, I'd have to be a pretty smug cunt to go around telling people I'm sorry they're not special too.

That's just a word you've heard. You don't know what it means. Certainly you'll refuse to discuss the significance of qualitative research. The most you've demonstrated you're willing to do is point to the dictionary, sealion for the rest.

Maybe an attempt at doxxing when you start to melt down. Because your ego is so weak, you need to find a way to get your own back when you feel you've lost.

That explains a lot. I'm sorry you had ignorant/racist parents.

I doxxed you because you are in fact, racist. You used the N bomb, you make negative references to Jews in your posts. Your behaviour is that of the pedophile evangelist that espouses hate toward homosexuals and is then busted in Thailand with an 11 year old boy.

I hope you find the help you need, mate.

Oh yes, poor me, a rare case of growing up with racist parents in an country whose government was founded by a totally not racist English colony.

If only I were special like xor, then I could laugh at Maoris too.

Funny how you describe a reaction formation, but would totally reject the model of human behaviour the concept comes from cause it's only qualitative science.

You're attempting to dox me because you want to win and feel like you're losing.

But I am no one and no one cares who I am, and your feelings of being a loser aren't going to go away so easily in any case.

Well, there we have it. xor's case for why Maoris are laughable when they complain about racism but have racial prejudice of their own.

*sigh* If only I were better than other people, I'd get to laugh at them as well.

OK let's get this thread back on track!

Richard Stallman returns to the FSF because he's a super sperg, gets cancelled because he's a super sperg, and doesn't give a shit because he's a super sperg!

Not sure that one is under the "PC gone mad" banner so much as the shitty political infighting that infests the Pride festival in NZ and has done for years.

More like "transmen aren't men". Speech of which that has a social & historical context of hate & violence.

I think we're talking about the tweet where he likens a white woman identifying as black to being transgender.

If transwomen are women, would you have any problem dating/fucking one?

Whether I want to have sex with someone or not doesn't define their gender. Though I suppose I have a genital preference regardless of gender. If a transwoman was physically indistinguishable from a cis woman I would probably still be held back by mental conflict arrising from the internalization of my generations views about gender, sex & sexuality.

A presentation by a council worker at a public school near Melbourne left students flabbergasted and parents incensed, after white boys who held Christian beliefs were reportedly told they were “oppressors” by default.

The incident allegedly took place at Parkdale Secondary College in a beachside suburb of Melbourne, Australia, last week, but was first reported by the Sunday Herald on Sunday.

The paper reported that the Kingston Youth Services worker was giving a presentation about “privilege, pronouns and “intersectionality”’ to year-11 students last Wednesday. As part of the presentation, the unnamed female worker told teens who considered themselves to be “male,” “white” and “Christian” to stand up and then chastised them for being the well-off class, reportedly labeling them as “oppressors.”
