I have a problem with an Auckland Radio 1ZB talkback host. Whilst at work my college said she loved listening to the talk back station. I said that a particular person always made me upset and disappointed with HIS carry on. "I" found this particular person to be pretty racist and also HE seemed to me to promote it. My BOSS whom is pakeha agreed but still she brought her radio in and in the end I ended up listening to the station. This radio "host" grated on my nerve and many maori whom rang in,it seemed to me, got "bumped" off quite smartly, without finishing their opinion. This happened time and time again. It was too obvious to me. The Maori would always open their chat with a "Kia Ora", like that within Maoridom and during the Papa Ruru hour. They where always answered with a silent unwelcome "Hummmph" Maybe I need confirmation. Any how, this host carried degrading Maori as always to the point that, he really hurt my feelings and I ended up crying because I just couldn't take anymore of his nasty chocolate covered tongue, no matter how long I tried to endure him for the sake of my boss. I walked out of the office, straight to the washroom and just cried. My happy disposition was gone for the rest of the day and into the next day. Well, with my boss seeing me in this state she said, I just had to see for myself. Does anyone know which talkback "host" I'm talking about.

My mum told me off for placing this thread in.
After reading it, I reluctantly agreed with her I like all talk back host, they are all wonderful (except one ;p ). Mum said that the hosts would get paranoid thinking it might be them when in FACT it is not . Just what we need, more mental health statistics

I think that you are quite entitled to have an opinion - the really cool thing is that we have this facility through which we can communicate to other people - isnt that why you jumped in here? I dont live in Auckland so I dont know which station or host you are referring to but we have had that same sort of "brush-off" here in Wellington. I think that you just saying this & putting the idea out there is helping to create an awareness among everyone and that can-not be bad - sorry mum.

Yep - I agree you are entitled to your own opinion - the thing with talkback shows is the need the ratings so maybe the dude or dudette is just doing so their radio station stays up there with the public ratings - the radio talk show reallys gets on my nerves especially when Tua man lost his fight against Lennox Lewis I tell you if I could have reached out and clipped his ears! I would have - but as my friend preceeded to englighten me about the importance of ratings!! and the things they will say... I still wasn't happy but then again I got over it.... for now anyway.

Aroha J...Aroha that you have to bear the weight of these things...At least you released your emotions rather than letting them fester inside you becomming some poison...I'm glad you shared your feelings with us...thankyou...For me the actions of that talkback host are merely reflections of his/her pain and ignorance which is festering inside of them and offering its poison to all it comes in contact with...The Beauty for myself is that we can learn from poison...and it is part of Creator or it just wouldn't be here...Must be its purpose...to learn from...Love that talkback host cuz...That by far the sharpest Mere in the rack...This is just an offering Cuz...You do what ever you need to do...though I am offering you my support to Love that person...If we kill everyone in the Canoe that has forgotten which way we are paddling we'll be stuffed ourselves...It's to big to paddle by ourselves...and next time you come across a similar thing it might still be work for you(?)...but you will be stronger than last time! It's inevitable my Friend! Our Mere Aroha will always be the last standing...
As for that other reply dissing your tears...Don't worry...that's a cousin of that talkback person...They've been very sick for a very long time...I think they got a huge hidding over a couple of thousand years ago...It was such a beating they even forgot who they were! But our Mere Aroha will help them heal...Oh...was that Mere...or Raukura...? Either way...it's definetly the Aroha version

I wouldnt get too worried abouit talkback radio. They are paid to get people argueing and debating. Whatever you may think ITS JUST THE OPINION OF ONE DJ. Dont sweat it. Use it to refine your argument and ring back and deal to them. Kia kaha.

Get over it - get a life - stop listening to talkback and face the facts of life. Racism is live and well so long as any race seeks to gain advantages over others.

Get over it for Chirsts sake.The talkback hosts tell it as it really is,unless they are clouded by the pc bullshit we are lumped with by the halfwits in the govenment.The drive time host hits the nail on the head most of the time in my view.As for racsim,in my experience it cuts both ways.

get a life,another useless bloody maori,it's called freedom of speech,and the talk back host is right on the button .Maori's are a parasite race,rascist ,separatist and because they can not produce or compete on a level playing feild ,are always looking for ways to steal ,cheat ,and rape the White man.Maori's show their weakness and inferiority by always blaming and wanting handouts ,and lower standards to compete in society.In the end the free handouts and handups paid and stolen from white New Zealand (The productive carrying the non productive) will destroy New Zealand and the Maori Race.

Mr V must belong to an other universe or perhaps a time long passed. Actually i thought they lived their lifes in some kind of museum of horrors. Unbeliveable. My advise Mr V take a big piece of soupe and wash your mouth maybe it will help.

Yeah V is another white supremacist or maybe he is just an agent provocateur stirrer. Either V is a supporter of the Nazis and his words were launched to hurt and maim from afar just like the V rockets Nazis launched to maim and kill their enemies from afar or he is an agent provocateur stirrer placing comments in Maori forums in the hope some Maori will respond in kind. If he is a white supremacist he probably races in and puts his boots into skinny Asians half his size even though those Asians are pound for pound more productive than any white person could ever be. If he is a white supremacist glorying in his superiority he probably hasn't noticed that the Asians are the most productive races on Earth at the moment and he along with the white race are in decline. As a white supremacist he would want to kick more skinny Asians if "fat cat" Asians in big cars become the norm while he has to pinch pennies after tax payer reparations to Maori because of Waitangi Tribunal judgments. Under a level economic playing field Maori are proving adept at expanding the money they were given as reparation for land confiscated through unjust laws passed by colonial governments when Maori didn't have the right to vote. How racist is that? The exception disproves the rule so Maori are not parasites living off whites who are not as productive as Asians anyway but then logic is probably not one of V's strong points because he is more interested in the hurt and maim like the terrorist he is. V as a white supremacist would automatically assume superiority for all time and he has probably never looked back in NZ history to see which race passed laws so Maori lost their lands or which race passed anti-Chinese racist laws for over a century. There is no doubt as to which of the races mentioned was the host and which race was the parasite but as mentioned V has probably never read any history. Alternatively, V is probably a stirrer placing racist comments in a Maori forum so that any irate Maori respondents can be investigated by the Police under the Suppression of Terrorism Act and the government can make out there are little cells of Maoris fomenting terrorist activities all over NZ. Meanwhile people like V continue to spout their racist diatribes unabated because they work for the police or the SIS. There is little wonder that Tuhoe are complaining after recent terrorist raids because historically unjust laws were used to send in government appointed forces to suppress supposed rebels in the Tuhoe area and enabled huge tracts of Tuhoe land to be confiscated in retribution. Historically the same process had already been used to confiscate Maori lands in other regions. Look it is ridiculous to assume that in this day and age that a handful of Tuhoe or anybody in fact could mount any sort of sustained terrorist activity like that in perpetrated in Iraq against the US forces. Historically the Tuhoe were always numerically smaller than the numbers available to the colonial government to suppress dissent. The same still applies today. As was proven by Police monitoring of activists in investigating supposed terrorist activity there is no way that anyone can conduct modern communications in small NZ without all their communications being monitored and therefore compromised. Everything entering NZ through normal postal services is vetted by the government so it is ridiculous to assume any weapons could enter NZ as supplies for domestic NZ terrorists. There has never been a large scale modern war in NZ that might have enabled weapons from arms dumps to be stolen and hidden away for insurrectionist activities like in Iraq. Any large amounts of chemicals purchased for the purpose of making explosives would be immediately reported to authorities. Everything is so clearly weighted against any sort of domestic terrorist activity in NZ that it is patently ridiculous to assume that it will occur. The type of small arms weaponry and surveillance equipment available to anti-terrorist squads in NZ - especially if they were SAS trained - would enable them to strike and wipe out a terrorist cell before they could even open their mouths and voice surprise. A few quiet words with VC winner Apiata would confirm that. No the government wants to suppress Maori for reasons that are underground but nothing to do with terrorism. Currently terrorism is being used as a political tool to distract people from the economy and National's constant talk of tax cuts. National are even worse for Maori than Labour because they will maintain the status quo in what Labour has done against Maori but National will probably follow Brash's lead and stop all Waitangi Tribunal reparations within five years. It is then that the real reason for the Suppression of (Maori) Terrorism Act will become apparent. The US and UK will have pulled out of Iraq by then and the price of oil will be well over $US100 a barrel and heading for $US180. Imagine petrol being twice the price that it is now. Any country having a sniff of oil or gas reserves will then find it economic to exploit their reserves. Even V will be flabbergasted by the turn in the tide of history and will be more interested in putting food in his mouth - today's radicals are tomorrows conservatives - rather than spitting out racist invective or he would have retired from the police force or the SIS. When the Waitangi Tribunal is no more well then wonders of wonders NZ will discover it has huge reserves of oil and gas - admittedly hard to get at but economic to extract when the price of oil is well over a $US100 a barrel. Read a bit of biblical history because the times of trouble are predicted in the bible. Remember V that Armageddon is coming and you'd better be in God's good books before the great tsunami. A good day to one an all. Well time for a cup of tea.
