Great news, we’ve got another edition in our very popular Migrant Tales series – first hand accounts of the migrant experience of New Zealand. And what’s more, there’s more like this to come.
Today’s tale was sent to us by a US citizen with a British husband who wasted 13 years of their life on “cold, cold” Kiwis and their racist ways. If you have a migrant tale you’d like to share leave it in the comments section
Here’s her story:
“I am an American and cannot count how many times I was told “go back where you came from”
! I was in NZ about 13 years, worst time of my life and I cannot believe I wasted so many of my years on these cold, cold people. I am a nice, friendly, well traveled American, so I’m not obnoxious, rude, or ignorant like some I’ve met traveling to NZ. In all my years there I have NO FRIENDS!!
! have been back in the USA now for 3 months since leaving and have so many friends so far! People actually come over to my house and hang out! They actually call/text when they say they will! Unlike Kiwis, if you’re not born there and have grown up with others and gone to school there; you’re fucked. NO social life for you! Even when my kid was going to school, I invited all the kids from his class to his birthday and sure, the other parents dropped their kids off then they left. Didn’t even stay to hang out, talk, chat, NOTHING. How awkward!
Also, Kiwis used to be proud of their British heritage and celebrate the fact they are a British commonwealth. Now they think they are special and somehow being proud of your British past is inferior. In doing so, they’ve tried to become this “multicultural, diverse” society (from the top) but the regular people don’t want their country filling up with Asians, Africans, refugees, etc. They barely tolerate their own British cousins! NZ is going to have a VERY big problem on their hands in a few years as all these groups they are bringing in WILL NOT assimilate, either because they don’t want to or can’t. And what you’ll get is an even more reclusive, isolated and detached society. Let’s not get started on the Maori. They can’t stand any newcomers. Which is why I think it is absolutely INSANE to add more groups into the society when the white Kiwis and the Maori have so many problems with each other!
Anyway I could go on and on…..oh yes and the racism is REAL, but not towards the dark skinned folk (because us whites get that too) rather racist towards the BRITISH. They are deliberately turning away white British (& Irish) and replacing with Asians & others. My husband (British) was only getting 1 year work visas at a time and the Filipinos, Asians, Indians, etc. were all getting AUTOMATIC 5 year work visas! Unbelievable! GOODBYE New Zealand! Take a look at whats happening in Europe with the refugee (invaders) and look where you’ll be in 10 years. It will be another 3rd world shit hole!!”
