‘Racist Rants:’ ACT condemns $60,000 poetry award

Tusiata Avia news

ACT is condemning Creative NZ’s decision to award $60,000 to so-called poet Tusiata Avia.

“Creative NZ has decided it wasn’t enough to just fund a stage show based on Tusiata Avia’s work – they’ve now handed her a $60,000 personal award for her racist rants,” says ACT Arts, Culture and Heritage spokesman Todd Stephenson.

“The council members who approved this sick, sick decision do a serious disservice to the awards’ other winners who will presumably now have to share a stage with a notorious racist. They need to review their process to ensure that taxpayer money is no longer used to support race-baiting.

“In her recent book, The Savage Coloniser, Avia makes the case for violent, vigilante justice to be dealt out against individuals based on their whiteness. The book is about murdering James Cook, his descendants, and white people like him.

“Tusiata Avia’s so-called poems are hateful diatribes, and while ACT recognises there may be a therapeutic value in allowing her to publish her nastiest thoughts, we don’t think taxpayers should be made complicit in sowing racial division.

“With a new Government looking to make spending cuts at low-value departments, Creative NZ is tempting fate.

“Don’t take it from me, read her poetry yourself. It’s my sincere hope that the media will print this excerpt from The Savage Coloniser in full so that taxpayers can see exactly what kind of racist vitriol they’re funding.”

  1. CREATIVE NZ would seem to be under the spell of some dark racist individuals when they can reward the hateful spew that came from Tusiata Avia in the form of her so called poetic rubbish.

  2. Art and literature should make people feel uncomfortable. The problem here is this ‘poem’ is an amateurish low grade piece of crap that isnt art, but looks as if it’s been written by a teenager

  3. Dey’s do dis ova in d’ ghettos! Dat’s wheres dis iz alllll lerned an picks-up!
    Where be mah’s spray cans o’ paints- I’se gots to do’s mo’ gangsta graffiti!!!
    An don’t calls me ‘Banksy’ nones eitha!!!
    I’se learns alll I’se knows from Snoop, and I’se be dressed by Diddy!

  4. All part of the woke at the wheel culture
    Cultivated nurtured and groomed under Labour
    To divide and segregate NZ and divorce it from reality
    With their whacky cohorts the Greens and the indigenous rights Party
    Which has completely f*ucked NZ the true extent of and the likes of which we have yet to fully grasp and realize
