@ K3PO, It is you that have made the poor assumption Pal. He's talking about the NZL environment only.
He's lucky that he was not an Aussie cricketer. In Oz the whites are even racist towards white Kiwis. There are thousands of jokes about Kiwis and their relationships with sheep. My neighbours are Kiwis and I observe them good-naturedly reacting to all the racist jibes that they receive from Skippies.
Racism against Kiwis is institutionalised here. They pay taxes but have to pay extra for doctors, schools and hospitals, and if they own a house they are not covered by disaster payments for cyclones, floods, or fires.
