A report by the Human Rights Commission titled “Drivers of migrant New Zealanders’ experiences of racism,” reveals migrants to New Zealand are experiencing racism ‘everywhere’ they go, Newshub reports. The report, which was released on Thursday, also discloses an “ongoing impact of historical and contemporary racism toward Māori” across the country. According to Race Relations Commissioner Meng Foon, the impacts of racism are traumatic and leave “deep-rooted scars,” though he trusts the research will help inform a national action plan against racism.
