I wouldn't accept it either, but that's only coz it's ****.
But you jump to the conclusion that they are all kids and they don't understand.
I was taught about my culture very early on in my life, and i'm sure the moari's are taught of their ancestory also. But one thing you surely have to take into mind is, if these are kids then they are very mature to accept it simply as a joke and be ok with it.
It's not very often you find mature kids (especially those who are safely hidden behind their monitors) being that wise about their words. I'd be slagging off people for the hell of it.
I just don't think you're giving them as much credit as they deserve.
They can make up their own minds...
John whats-his-face (The Former Labour Politician) and that Willie DeWitt guy, hosts the radio and those dead end Talk Shows you see on at 11:30 at night.
Basically each week they pick a topic and debate about it. Each week it seems to involve Maori and each week DeWitt sides with the radical viewpoint (like this week, he said that the Maori culture should be put above all cultures, get all the funding, everyone has to go to a Marae and that all other cultures are wrong and so on) and John disagrees with him.
Couple of weeks ago Willie also said everyone should have to learn to speak Maori as well.
