Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Vol 35 no. 10. 24 May 1972


The Maori in contemporary New Zealand society if he is evaluated by Pakeha criteria is a minority group that is at the bottom of the social ladder. Like minorities the world over Maoris experience social and economic disadvantages that confer on them inferior social status in relation to the dominant Pakeha majority. If the present trend continues, the tyranny of the majority will in a few short years have created a brown proletariat that will be New Zealand's social equivalent of the Negroes of America.
