New Zealand Minister Slammed After Blaming 'White Cis Men' For Violence

Davidson is being criticized for not publicly apologizing for his comments.

At least 90 complaints have been received. "I'm a minister for violence prevention and I know that white men who are cissex cause violence around the world. Marama Davidson, Greens coleader and co-leader of the Green Party, says that white cis males are to blame for the violent protest by transgender activists.

"I admit that I could have said things more clearly. Normaly, I take great care. He said, "She contacted my office already yesterday to say that the video didn't convey the message she was trying to convey." Her office contacted mine. Hipkins said that her comment was "not particularly helpful" and she should not have included ethnicity.
