I’m a patriot, not a racist

Dear Editor,

Re: An ideal xenophobe bordering on being racist

A great response indeed!

It will be nice to follow the conversation right from the beginning to establish the truth and understand the full story. 

I know my “fa’a Peretania” is terrible but at least I know the meaning of INJUSTICE. 

I am fine for being called a xenophobe or racist because I am comfortable with what I’ve been writing to my friend LV and everything is on record. 

LV is my lady friend and she’s a scholar from the Victorian era when all the history of the world was compiled in the form of ethnocentrism. 

It’s basically “xenophobia and racism” when they refer to noble people living peacefully on their beautiful island as “savages”. 

I have to be blunt with my lady friend because when it comes to the TRUTH you just can’t sugar coat anything. 

So if she was brainwashed by the palagi in calling her forefathers “savages” then you have to pour cold water on her face to wake her up. 

I know from all the facts on the internet that my forefathers were brilliant people with a brilliant culture so was I a racist or xeno - something to be blunt about the TRUTH? 

So “xenophobe bordering on being racist” well it looks like LV is not the only one struggling with the TRUTH. 

Just so that you should know Mr. Editor, someone that defend his country and the honour of his forefather is not a racist, he is simply called a ‘Patriot’. And that is the TRUTH in a nutshell.
