Dame Anne Salmond on NZ's racist underbelly

From The Panel, 4:06 pm on 19 March 2019

The Panelists confront the uncomfortable possibility that New Zealand is a racist country. Respected historian and writer Dame Anne Salmond says New Zealanders need to look racism directly in the eye and stop pretending its not there. She says the idea of white supremacy is part of who we are and is based on on arrogance, and ignorance. She urges us to name it for what it is, challenge it when we see it and "replace it with better ways of being Kiwi".
