TVNZ: Asians suffer discrimination
Asians are regarded as the group most likely to suffer discrimination in New Zealand, according to survey results.
In the poll conducted for the Human Rights Commission by UMR Survey, 74% of respondents said Asian people experienced “a great deal” or “some” discrimination.
Men and children were groups with the lowest level of perceived discrimination at 27%.
The figures are contained in the Race Relations Report’s discrimination chapter, which will be released to the national meeting of the Federation of Ethnic Councils in Auckland on Saturday.
The report, the full version of which will be published next month, also records media reports of racially motivated crime last year.
Among them was the jailing of Hayden Brent McKenzie, 31, for a life term for the killing of Korean backpacker Jae Hyeon Kim near Westport in 2003. Full Article.
