Last week we heard from Andrew Judd on how the debate began over having a Maori ward in New Plymouth. This week we hear from him about how as a result of that process he became the focus of immense vitriol from the public. The most amazing thing about that vitriol was that Andrew understood it; he himself had been upset by similar issues in the past. This is the story of how Andrew Judd realised he is a recovering racist.

That was the genesis behind the Morgan Foundations Talk Treaty project which got prominent New Zealanders talking about the Treaty.
