Jacinda on Australia Day

Jacinda Ardern writes in the SST on the call for NZ to have a national holiday that is an actual celebration like Day:

Australia Day? Are you kidding? That is the last place we should be looking for a model of race relations, let alone a national day of celebration – unless you’re into drunken, casual racism. 

Jacinda seems to be judging Australia Day off the basis of what a small minority do. I doubt most Australians see it as a day of drunken casual racism.
