The difference between Maori and Mana parties

Yvette pointed this out:

Sharples or Brash “You once again bring the Maori people’s aspirations into contempt and ridicule. Your views are not only inaccurate and ill-founded, but are totally out of tune with middle New Zealand’s ideals and aspirations for our country.”

Harawira on Brash “Your attempts to boost Act in the polls by riding on the xenophobic fears of Joe Bloggs in the street will not work this time round.”

I thought that was a great contrast. The believe the “average” New Zealander shares their aspirations for Maori, while the believes the average New Zealander is racist.

I think that difference in world view goes to the heart of why Hone left the Maori Party.
