Description 'I had a Golly when I was a little boy and I loved it the most. I felt hurt and incredulous when he was branded an evil, racist character as he was part of my support group. Most people do not know that Golly was an employer and paid Noddy good wages. As a business owner he was angry at Noddy for tooting the car horns in his garage instead of working. Why shouldn't he tell Noddy off? Why wasn't he allowed to be drawn angry? Why is it okay for Noddy’s White employer to be angry at Noddy instead? Paul Holmes was taken to the gallows for making an ironic comment about a Cheeky Little Darkie.

This image asks for common sense and erudite propositions rather than vile, mendacious use of fear and hatred for political wins. Calling someone a Wog might be racist but that does not make Golly a character who perpetuates racial hatred. While the Maori Rugby team is racially selected, it is not racist. Golly, similarly is a racially defined cuddly children's toy and story book character and that is all. Is it not racist to NOT include brown skin in children’s stories? So here he walks in the N.Z. landscape...naughty little Golly…but isn't that how some Pakeha see Maori?!'
