Margaret Mutu Just Can't Sell it
I kinda feel sorry for Auckland University professor,
Margaret Mutu. You see Dr Mutu just can't sell it, she
is desperately trying to become one of those activists, that
make non Maori and Maori alike blood boil, she wants to

comes across as what she hates, a popmus
highfluting proffessor, who's ideas aren't
based in reality.
Maori deserve better.
