- Scoop (Firm)
Cartoon shows a newspaper with the headline, 'Heart breaking news - Minto savages helpless artist!'. Refers to criticism of a recent cartoon by Christchurch-based artist, Al Nisbet, by John Minto, co-leader of the Mana party. Minto has stated that the cartoon reinforces 'lazy racist stereotypes'. See http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/opinion/perspective/8775550/Easier-to-build-racist-stereotypes, 10 June 2013) Accompanying note from the cartoonist states: "John Minto attacking a cartoon? Maybe we need a sign on the wall, as in the Wild West, saying 'Don't shoot the Pianist'. I did this cartoon as a comment on the Mana Party's attack on a cartoon by [Al] Nisbet. Nisbet is entitled to make a comment concerning Maori parents. It seems that no public figures are wiling to comment seriously on Maori issues at the moment. Even cartoonists are feeling the pressure. Fair comment does not add up to being racist."
