Sir Guy Powle's report on his job as Race Relations Conciliator last year is a sad story. The Race Relations Act is being shown to be pretty useless in its present form and Sir Guy has seen fit to take a tentative and apologetic approach to the racism in our society. Part of the trouble goes back to the way the Act was conceived by the National Government. It was a whitewash effort to enable-New Zealand to say that it outlawed racism, and so escape criticism from the United Nations.
