The points made, is that our history is not all sunshine and roses, and in New Zealand we also had cannibals (A bit of history). If it were not for lateral minded people (I will not use the word liberal, as this has different meaning between us), then the good and the bad would not of changed.
I will not judge your or our or any race based upon forefathers failures, neither by the successes. The past has gone, it can not be changed, We can only change the future by our actions.
So my statement is just as ridiculous as many of the conservative statements made in these threads.
PS we are sheep shaggers as well. (JOKE)
