What did Hone Harawira mean by his "white mo-fo" email?

WARNING: May offend some listeners. Willie Jackson and John Tamihere speak to Hone Harawira in the wake of the Louis Crimp affair. Louis Crimp made his anti-Maori sentiment known through a New Zealand Herald interview over the weekend. Hone Harawira was publicly lambasted in 2009 after the leaking of a private email in which he used language such as "white motherfuckers". JT questions Hone about the notorious email and precisely what was meant by it. "Some pakehas would have take your [Hone's] comments as a hate factor against all of them," feels JT. 22nd May 2012.
