RNZ: White noise
Radio New Zealand (National) used to have a slogan, "sounds like us", and I guess they dropped that when the Irish Noelle McCarthy was given a plumb spot hosting. I've posted before on how the network is a Pakeha network run and staffed and programmed by and for the white folk, but listening to a stream of Poms on air today it merits another comment.
Radio NZ is so racist that even the African correspondent is white. Everyone on air has to be white. It doesn't matter where they come from as long as they are white. British, Australian, European, American - as long as they are white. One foreign accent after another - as long as they are not any other colour other than white, being the white races of European origin. That is the policy of RNZ National.
Anyone who listens regularly will know exactly what I mean - although very few (because the audience is obviously going to be almost exclusively white) would be expected to be aware of this let alone see it as a concern. I listen mainly because they have no ads - a luxury subsidised by the NZ government. But sometimes even the horrendous intrusion every ten minutes of commercials for erectile dysfunction, quack medicines, local niche companies with awful jingles and so on blighting the talk stations is better than listening to white foreigners and white New Zealanders on Radio fucking Rhodesia. No wonder it is so lifeless, bland, stale, smug, irrelevant and old.
For so long as RNZ (and Concert is even worse than National) is a state subsidised bastion of Pakehadom with no equivalent Maori network it will be a racist institution no matter how many times they say "kia ora".
