On Thursday 21 March 2019, the cringe-inducingly-named Race Relations Day* will be celebrated in Whangarei with a free public event featuring invited speakers, at Forum North’s Cafler Room at 7pm (*There is no scientific basis for race. There is only one ‘race’ of people, and all come from Africa. A more useful term is ethnicity.)

Speakers include Dr Ray Nairn who set up Kupu Taea, a group that has monitored news media for cultural bias for several years. He wrote the most recent Joan Cook Memorial Essay on the State of the Pākehā Nation for Network Waitangi Whangārei.
