I am a New Zealand South African that lived with racism and 'separate development' in Africa for nearly 70 years. The Coloureds in South Africa are a happy lot. The "coloureds" in New Zealand are not a happy lot. They thrive on the Grievance Industry, created in 1975, that is bleeding New Zealand dry - a land truly blessed with 'milk and honey'. The first Governor of New Zealand, Captain William Hobson, dated his founding document on the 4th August 1840 and greeted the signatories with the words "Now we are one" people. Not two, but one.

The O'Reilly and Carvell books were launched in June 2018. They are genealogy books specific to Danny O'Reilly of Paeroa.
