New Zealand is widely considered to have some of the best race relations in the world. To uphold his dream of creating a social order where racial identity is made insignificant, contemporary supporters of colour blindness argue that race and racism must disappear from our lexicon Brown, In explaining the concept of colour blind racism, critical race theorists Eduardo Bonilla-Silva and Farida Fozda identify three key rhetorical devices used by political leaders who adopt a colour blind approach to achieving racial equality in order to legitimise existing assumptions held by the white majority regarding the origins and explanations of persistent racial disparities, and essentially justify and promote the perpetuation of white hegemony as a viable solution. On examination, each of these three facets of colour blind thought reveals the white supremacist implications that incontrovertibly problematise such a stance.

New Zealand is widely considered to have some of the best race relations in the world. To uphold his dream of creating a social order where racial identity is made insignificant, contemporary supporters of colour blindness argue that race and racism must disappear from our lexicon Brown, In explaining the concept of colour blind racism, critical race theorists Eduardo Bonilla-Silva and Farida Fozda identify three key rhetorical devices used by political leaders who adopt a colour blind approach to achieving racial equality in order to legitimise existing assumptions held by the white majority regarding the origins and explanations of persistent racial disparities, and essentially justify and promote the perpetuation of white hegemony as a viable solution.
On examination, each of these three facets of colour blind thought reveals the white supremacist implications that incontrovertibly problematise such a stance. The first of the three rhetorical devices employed by those who adopt a colour blind stance on racial politics is portraying racism as solely perpetrated by individual acts of prejudice, rather than collective and institutionalised discrimination. Western countries of colonisation are credited with making significant progress in legally and politically rectifying racial injustices within the last 50 years, leading many within the white majority to dismiss collective, institutionalised white supremacy as a thing of the past Brown, Contrary to popular opinion, however, white racism today is not limited to those who express individual prejudice Brown, Subscribers to the colour blind ideology do not appear to realise that by neglecting to do this, their inaction perpetuates the racial inequality that they superficially oppose Brown, The second component of colour blind racism, as set out by Bonilla-Silva and Fozdar, is the way in which political leaders frame their colour blind stance on racial politics in the language of liberalism.
The political beauty of the colour blind ideology, therefore, is that it allows white elites to state overtly racial views in a seemingly principled, even moral manner Bonilla-Silva, Brash drew upon liberal values throughout his speech to the Orewa Rotary Club, illustrating the way in which political leaders who subscribe to the colour blind ideology make use of this rhetorical device.
Equality remained a common theme throughout, often used in conjunction with democracy, modernity and prosperity. As Jon Johansson highlights, the charge that any group is receiving some sort of privilege at the expense of other New Zealanders is bound to find a receptive audience Johanssan, As a result, Brash was able to cultivate the powerful image of a political leader with integrity, which reinforced the seemingly principled nature of his views Johanssan, While the language associated with colour blind racism may appear liberal or progressive, this disguises its conservative end Fozdar, This rhetorical device requires some unpacking, as it manifests in multiple components.
Firstly, political leaders who propagate colour blind racism present Eurocentric institutions, values and beliefs as normal, natural and universal in an attempt to discredit alternative, oppositional views which pose a threat to white dominance.
White supremacist views are further legitimised by making moral comparisons with other countries of colonisation. It is founded upon the commonly held view that the white majority conduct their public and private lives according to universally held systems and values which are not culturally bound but normal, natural and necessary Jackson, ; Poata-Smith, As a result, redress is an incredibly important part of their culture.
From this standpoint, claims made by minority races that all responsibility for their unequal position in society lies with white racism merely obscure the reality of their own failure and lack of effort Brown, Because the dispossession of one people, land and culture by another cannot be isolated from its political reality, solutions to achieving racial equality in a postcolonial society must always be located in a political as well as economic context Bargh, b.
This response was not entirely unexpected. For many New Zealanders, the Orewa speech finally allowed them to express pent up resentment regarding the policy directions taken by previous governments Johanssan, What about our rights?
Johansson explains that a leader who can articulate widely shared concerns and recommend practical solutions to them holds a considerable advantage over his or her rivals Johanssan, There is evidence to suggest New Zealanders may have changed their views on race since UMR research polls conducted in revealed that only 5. Of course this is merely a provisional solution, and there is still much to be done if New Zealand is to experience harmonious race relations in the future.

Australia is a vibrant, multicultural country. Since , almost seven million people have migrated to Australia. This rich, cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths. It is central to our national identity. In , the Racial Discrimination Act came into force, making discrimination in different parts of public life against the law. In , the Act was extended to make public acts of racial hatred against the law. Today, the Act continues to send a strong message about our common commitment to racial equality and the importance of a fair go for all.
Although intended to empower Maori, ethnic categorization can have unintended and negative consequences by ignoring the causality of material forces in social phenomena. The authors begin by showing how the use of ethnic categories in health policy is justified by the Treaty of Waitangi partnership policies. This provides the context for the argument made in the manuscript that an understanding of the social experience of ethnicity within the complex interaction of sociocultural factors such as socioeconomic location and lifestyle is more useful than using the political construct of ethnic categories in explaining the persistence of low health status for a section of the Maori population. In New Zealand, the emergence of Maori retribalization in the s within the wider context of the Maori cultural revival, biculturalism, and the Treaty of Waitangi historical grievance settlements has produced policies and practices in the health sector that classify the Maori section of the population as a discrete ethnic or racial category McCreanor and Nairn, , U This article argues that the ethnic categorization process can be understood as a political construct in Treaty politics. The solution to the colonially imposed inequality and the resulting disadvantage is believed to be found in varying degrees of tribal self-determination.

Defining Aboriginality in Australia
- Она вздохнула. - Быть может, придется ждать, пока Дэвид не найдет копию Танкадо. Стратмор посмотрел на нее неодобрительно. - Если Дэвид не добьется успеха, а ключ Танкадо попадет в чьи-то руки… Коммандеру не нужно было договаривать. Сьюзан и так его поняла.
Стратмор подавил желание встать с ней. Он многое знал об искусстве ведения переговоров: тот, кто обладает властью, должен спокойно сидеть и не вскакивать с места. Он надеялся, что она сядет. Но она этого не сделала. - Сьюзан, сядь.

Рука его все еще сжимала пачку банкнот, пятьдесят тысяч песет, которые какой-то сумасшедший американец заплатил ему за дешевый черный пиджак. ГЛАВА 94 Мидж Милкен в крайнем раздражении стояла возле бачка с охлажденной водой у входа в комнату заседаний. Что, черт возьми, делает Фонтейн? - Смяв в кулаке бумажный стаканчик, она с силой швырнула его в бачок для мусора. - В шифровалке творится нечто непонятное. Я чувствую. Она знала, что есть только один способ доказать свою правоту - выяснить все самой, а если понадобится, то с помощью Джаббы. Мидж развернулась и направилась к двери.
Проваливал бы ты, пидор. Беккер убрал руку. Парень хмыкнул. - Я тебе помогу, если заплатишь. - Сколько? - быстро спросил Беккер.
Затем, в отчаянии, он поднял над собой левую руку, чуть не задев по лицу пожилого человека. Камера выхватила исковерканные пальцы Танкадо, на одном из которых, освещенное ярким испанским солнцем, блеснуло золотое кольцо. Танкадо снова протянул руку. Пожилой человек отстранился. Танкадо посмотрел на женщину, поднеся исковерканные пальцы прямо к ее лицу, как бы умоляя понять .
Тогда почему бы не вызвать службу безопасности, которая могла бы его задержать.
