Taika Waititi Says New Zealand Is "Racist As Fuck"



"It’s racist as fuck. I mean, I think New Zealand is the best place on the planet, but it’s a racist place. People just flat-out refuse to pronounce Maori names properly. There’s still profiling when it comes to Polynesians. It’s not even a color thing — like, ‘Oh, there’s a black person.’ It’s, ‘If you’re Poly then you’re getting profiled.’ I really cherish the memories of how I grew up, [but] it was actually pretty shit, growing up poor in the country,”
