Best of both worlds

MyRight seems to think that there is some problem with Maori wanting the best of both worlds. Why? All Tariana Turia is saying is that the choice between Maori and European cultures and ways of doing things is not necessarily a binary one, that there are options other than rejecting all that is European and (destructive) assimilation.

Thinking this is revealing or "an inadvertent frank admission" says more about MyRights attitudes than it does about Maori ones.
