White Faces Will Soon Be a Minority

Lincoln Tan, New Zealand Herald, October 1, 2012

White Europeans could lose majority status in Auckland in the next few years as the combined population of Asians, Pacific Islanders and Maori increases, Statistics New Zealand figures indicate.

While the city’s population was 76 per cent white European in 1976, projections show it will be 51 per cent in 2016, with further reductions in later years.

The forecast comes as the Herald begins a five-part series on ethnic diversity in Auckland, where about 40 per cent of the inhabitants were born overseas.

Nearly 70 per cent of Aucklanders in a Herald street poll said they were comfortable with the changing face of the city.

Massey University sociology professor Paul Spoonley, who made the Auckland population projection based on Statistics NZ figures, said it was a matter of “when” rather than “if” minority communities combined would outnumber white Europeans in Auckland.

The high rate of permanent outward migration of New Zealand citizens and the record exodus to Australia would hasten this because most of those who left were European or Maori, he said.

The social shift was also aided by the Immigration Act 1987, which radically changed migrant entry to New Zealand. Requirements were based on individual characteristics, skills and money rather than preferred source countries.

Between 1986 and 2006, the numbers born in Asia and now resident in New Zealand increased by 661 per cent, with the Chinese (899.4 per cent) and Indians (841.6 per cent) dominating growth.

Over that time the number of overseas-born Pacific people also doubled, and migrants from other countries, such as Africa, also increased.

Professor Spoonley said older age groups might struggle to come to grips with this “huge change”.

Auckland Chinese Community Centre chairman Arthur Loo, a local-born Chinese, counts himself among those who would be “uncomfortable” if there were more Asians, Pacific and Maori than Pakeha in Auckland.

“I wouldn’t want Pakeha to be the minority. I think we as New Zealanders have got to acknowledge what the founding peoples of New Zealand were, and it’s Maori and people from the United Kingdom,” Mr Loo said.

He said Auckland should remain a city that kept New Zealand’s “Maori-European heritage”.

“I mean all societies evolve, but I certainly won’t want to see the Anglo-Saxon or the English culture subjugated in any way because they, in a large part, have made what is New Zealand and that’s why we’re here,” Mr Loo said.

“They were responsible for building New Zealand to what it is today, and other people come and we take advantage of that.”

  • I don’t care if they have a high IQ.

    They’re not European.

    Personally, I’m sick and tired of seeing latte-sipping beta male homos in major urban centers with their little subservient Asian devoid of personality or creativity.

    If anything, Asians are worse because they dilute our European blood in greater frequencies than other non-white immigrants.

    Low-IQ non-white immigrants are bad enough, but importing high-IQ non-White immigrants will destroy our white-collar, professional, upper-middle class.

    Our working class has been decimated, but now our white-collar class too? I’m surprised there hasn’t been a revolution in this country.

    I can’t wait for things to get worse, Whites will become increasingly desperate. Once White males realize they have already lost everything, then things will get interesting.

    Remember, it took 700 years before the Christian Kingdoms in Spain decided it was time to fight back against the Muhammadan invaders or their subversive collaborators (we know who they are).

    There will be another Pelayo (Pelagius of Asturias) in the Western World

    • I can dig the “latte-sipping beta male white homo in major urban centers” because they’re displacing blacks.  It’s the only place where whites are displacing blacks.  Maybe we should take a lesson and behave in ways that white liberals are behaving, because “conservatism” isn’t getting us anything but expunged and slated for dispossession.

      •  You’re absolutely right.  I don’t know what the liberals are doing that drives the blacks out but we need to find out and emulate it.

        On the other hand our strategy of moving to the suburbs and rural areas is causing the cities to implode.  We may be able to bring down the system that is dispossessing us.

        The biggest weapons against diversity are a combination of land values and starvation of funds.  Our enemies know this which is why they build low income housing,  reach into suburban tax dollars and try to extend public transportation to the suburbs.

        • We control the inner cities, blacks live in inner suburbs, and we control outer suburbs and rural areas.  This means if they ever get rambunctious…er, riotous, we have them surrounded on two flanks.  The only hitch is that we might have to teach the “pitchers and catchers” that live in cities how to use a thirty-aught-six or something more powerful.

          I am moving to rural New England soon, from Socal.

          I hope all of Socal implodes.

       Except in the future countries like NZ and Australia will have Chinese troops invading to quell any white-survival revolutions.  The Chinese are building up their navy and the fools in NZ and Australia have no defense, having foresworn nuclear weapons.

      Looks like somebody is excusing white women embracing Feminism, which is the primary cause of decline in white society.

      Such a long-winded rant, and nary a mention of the white female betrayers of white society who call themselves “Feminists”.

      Your rant was almost completely futile. Probably, it was even more damaging than worthless.

      • disqus_4Jy24XjH8I

        When men forced women to make a choice in between fulfilling work and child care, a lot of women chose working.  Don’t get mad at them.  Why didn’t white men step up to the plate, and help women to do both of those things?

        Yeah, here in LA, all you see is white men with asians.  ‘Poppa san, poppa san’!  Then they leave you when the money runs out. 

        You’re guilty fellas. 

        • 5n4k33y3s

          The most important thing white men are guilty of is not keeping white women in their place.

          You are a defiant woman, hissing like a dirty feral cat in an alley. The Patriarchy will never be defeated by an insolent upstart such as you.

            Hey, nice try at the alpha male routine, but I can already tell you have half the IQ I do.

            Go back to your trailor park and finish having sex with your relatives.

    So 70% of a 40% non-white city are “comfortable” with the “changing face of the city”?

    Do liberals think we’re all dumb or are they too dumb themselves to figure this out? It’s like when they survey the beneficiaries of some government program and find – surprise! – that the program enjoys fantastic support. Let’s ask blacks what they think about affirmative action – hey look, ninety percent of people like it! I guess we all agree then & we can move on…

  • loyalwhitebriton

    I once read that many of the towns and villages in NZ are “more English than England”.

    Seems like another great white colony is going down the toilet.

    I hope that the framers of the Immigration Act 1987 eventually “Rest In Peace” in a very hot place!

  • Seems like many of the Chinese immigrants are wiser than the hopeless white liberals.  They want to move to NZ precisely because the White people made it into paradise.  They understand that their home country of China is NOT  a paradise specifically because it is dominated by Han Chinese.

    Why We Are So Rude Online

    Jennifer Bristol recently lost one of her oldest friends—thanks to a Facebook fight about pit bulls.

    The trouble started when she posted a newspaper article asserting
    that pit bulls were the most dangerous type of dog in New York City
    last year. “Please share thoughts… 833 incidents with pitties,” wrote
    Ms. Bristol, a 40-year-old publicist and animal-welfare advocate in
    Manhattan.

    A
    recent study looks at rates of overweight and credit-card debt among
    heavy users of Facebook and concludes this group tends to have less
    impulse control. Elizabeth Bernstein has details on The News Hub.

    Her friends, many of whom also work in the animal-welfare world,
    quickly weighed in. One noted that “pit bull” isn’t a single official
    breed; another said “irresponsible ownership” is often involved when
    dogs turn violent. Black Labs may actually bite more, someone else
    offered.

     

    Then a childhood pal of Ms. Bristol piped up with this: “Take it from
    an ER doctor… In 15 years of doing this I have yet to see a golden
    retriever bite that had to go to the operating room or killed its
    target.”

    Why are we so nasty to each
    other online? Whether on Facebook, Twitter, message boards or
    websites, we say things to each other that we would never say face to
    face. Shouldn’t we know better by now?

    Anonymity is a powerful force.
    Hiding behind a fake screen name makes us feel invincible, as well as
    invisible. Never mind that, on many websites, we’re not as anonymous as
    we think—and we’re not anonymous at all on Facebook. Even when we
    reveal our real identities, we still misbehave.

    According to
    soon-to-be-published research from professors at Columbia University
    and the University of Pittsburgh, browsing Facebook lowers our self
    control. The effect is most pronounced with people whose Facebook networks were made up of close friends, the researchers say.

    Most of us present an enhanced image of ourselves on Facebook. This
    positive image—and the encouragement we get, in the form of
    “likes”—boosts our self-esteem. And when we have an inflated sense of self, we tend to exhibit poor self-control.

    You feel good about
    yourself so you feel a sense of entitlement,” says Keith Wilcox,
    assistant professor of marketing at Columbia Business School and
    co-author of the study. “And you want to protect that enhanced view,
    which might be why people are lashing out so strongly at others who
    don’t share their opinions.” These types of behavior—poor self control,
    inflated sense of self—”are often displayed by people impaired by
    alcohol,” he adds.

    The researchers conducted a series of five studies. In one, they
    asked 541 Facebook users how much time they spent on the site and how
    many close friends they had in their Facebook networks. They also asked
    about their offline lives, including questions about their debt and
    credit-card usage, their weight and eating habits and how much time
    they spent socializing in person each week.

    People who spent more time
    online and who had a high percentage of close ties in their network
    were more likely to engage in binge eating and to have a greater body
    mass index, as well as to have more credit-card debt and a lower credit
    score, the research found. Another study found that people who
    browsed Facebook for five minutes and had strong network ties were more
    likely to choose a chocolate-chip cookie than a granola bar as a
    snack.

    In a third study, the professors gave participants a set of anagrams
    that were impossible to solve, as well as timed IQ tests, then measured
    how long it took them to give up trying to solve the problems. They
    found people who spent more time on Facebook were more likely to give
    up on difficult tasks more quickly. A Facebook spokesman declined to
    comment.

    Why are we often so aggressive online? Consider this recent post to
    this column’s Facebook page, from someone I don’t know: “Why should I
    even bother writing you? You won’t respond.”

    We’re less inhibited online because we don’t have to see the reaction
    of the person we’re addressing, says Sherry Turkle, psychologist and
    Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor of the social studies
    of science and technology. Because it’s harder to see and focus on what
    we have in common, we tend to dehumanize each other, she says.

    Astoundingly, Dr. Turkle says, many people still forget that they’re
    speaking out loud when they communicate online. Especially when posting
    from a smartphone, “you are publishing but you don’t feel like you
    are,” she says. “So what if you say ‘I hate you’ on this tiny little
    thing? It’s like a toy. It doesn’t feel consequential.”

    And for Facebook, its very name is part of the problem. “It promises
    us a face and a place where we are going to have friends,” says Dr.
    Turkle, author of the book “Alone Together: Why We Expect More from
    Technology and Less from Each Other.” “If you get something hurtful
    there, you’re not prepared. You feel doubly affronted, so you strike
    back.”

    It’s high season for online bickering about politics, as Chip Bolcik
    well knows. Mr. Bolcik, 54, a TV announcer and registered Independent
    from Thousand Oaks, Calif., likes to pose political questions on his
    Facebook page. “I am very interested in how people think who have
    different views than mine,” he says. “And sometimes I will write a
    provocative question for the entertainment purpose of watching people
    yell at each other.”

    Over the past few months, Mr. Bolcik lost two real-life friends
    because of online political spats. The first friend got mad at him
    after he posted a status update asking people to debate whether Mormons
    are Christians. (“You are so off base you don’t know what you are
    talking about,” she wrote on his page, followed later by: “You’re an
    idiot.”) Mr. Bolcik blocked her from his page. “I will allow free
    discussion until you irritate me,” he says. Sometimes, he erases entire
    conversation threads.

    The second friendship ended even more abruptly, after one of Mr.
    Bolcik’s old friends offended several of his Facebook friends, as well
    as Mr. Bolcik himself, by repeatedly posting his views. “He was
    spouting about politics, rather than discussing,” Mr. Bolcik says. Mr.
    Bolcik wrote his friend and told him he was going to block him from the
    page if he didn’t pipe down. In response, his friend told him off
    using vulgar language and unfriended him. “I was pretty upset,” Mr.
    Bolcik says.

    Still, he sometimes can’t restrain himself from fanning the flames.
    When a political discussion thread becomes heated and he doesn’t like
    the way it is going—”right or left,” he says—he privately messages one
    of his “attack dog” friends and suggests he or she join the discussion.
    “I will say, ‘Gee, this discussion doesn’t seem right to me, what do
    you think?’ ” he says. “Then they will go on there and berate the
    person who is upsetting me, and I will look like the good guy.”

    The Whites who signed off on the anti White immigration policies have vacation homes in non Diverse resorts.   All Whites who suffer under Diversity have a moral duty to find out where these homes are…

    • disqus_4Jy24XjH8I

      Sign me up……… I’ll burn ’em down……….

  • 5n4k33y3s

    The main thing is that white men have to properly subjugate white women again. After that, everything else begins to fall into place.

  • KenelmDigby

    I always had this naive belief that New Zealand (‘little England beyond the Pacific’), would be one of the last refuges left for the White race after north America and Europe succumbed.
    I was wrong, they have been infected by the same lunacy as the others.

  • KenelmDigby

    I’d like to congratulate the Arthur Loo mentioned in the article for his rare common sense and honesty.

    • Sloppo

      Agreed.  It seems that common sense is very uncommon these days.  

  • CaptainCavemen

    if a white man was to say the same way he would probably pilloried.

    Everyone with any common sense knows that what Mr Loo said was correct. The problem is that many Whites are just too timid to say something that is so plainly obvious. I think that Whites have been conditioned to believe that kind of rhetoric is verboten, but if more Whites were to express such ideas, then the shock value of Whites speaking out for our own interests would be lost and others would come to accept such statements for being what they are – the truth. 

    • disqus_4Jy24XjH8I

      Then we Whites had better start speaking up NOW.      I_ AM_.

  • GM (Australia)

    Not quite true, they have automatic right of entry to Australia and the dole here is pretty good. In all fairness they are often very hard workers and some get lucrative football contracts, but together with other Pacific Islanders they are grossly over-represented in the prison system often for alcohol and violence related offences.

    It was also interesting to note that in the infamous Cronulla Beach Riot here some years ago many Maoris joined in and sided against the Muslims.

    When I researched it couldn’t be true that Iceland is turning multicultural.

    That was one of the countries along with Switzerland.

    I get the impression a lot of Chinese leave to get away from their government. I don’t see Taiwan clamoring for a PLA presence, nor was Hong Kong all that enthusiastic about them taking over either. I think what this represents is the real nightmare for white nationalists–whites being  replaced by a tolerant, productive and high-IQ population that’s willing to interbreed with them and preserve their culture even as it demographically overwhelms them.

    • 5n4k33y3s

      Favorable conditions for mixing with another race only exists until they reach a saturation point, and then they take your women instead of vice versa.

      As soon as there are enough of the other people that you no longer enjoy elevated status, your women are on their menu and their women are no longer on your menu.

      All other things being more or less equal, it’s a question of man power. But the natives of Australia and New Zealand should lose their grudge against whites, because less immigration means more space and opportunity for natives.

      The whites should offer some more favorable treaties recognizing native sovereignty here and there as a bargain to stave off the pro-immigration agitation and solidarity from natives.

  • disqus_4Jy24XjH8I

    Well, a Chinese man who knows and can admit the truth.
