UoA students and AUSA President Alofa So’olefai roasted a racist submission posted on the infamous Facebook page, ‘UoA: meaningful confessions’.
In the confession, posted on Monday 15 August, and titled “Get out of our student bar!” the poster who dubbed themself “Putoutafire” claimed that Shadows was “occupied by a combination of middle-aged blokes and heavily tattooed potential gang affiliates” during the free Katchafire gig.
Katchafire, an all Māori reggae band from Kirikiriroa, played at Shadz on 12 August as part of Māori Day celebrations.
“Don’t be mad because it wasn’t your duff duff music my guy,” So’olefai commented on the anonymous post.
“I reckon go to Bunnings, eat some concrete and harden tf up,” said another commenter. Yet another invited the poster to “cry more kid.”
Countless other comments made fun of the poster’s concern about “potential gang affiliates.” One person wrote “you can’t be serious rn.” Another wrote “first of all, what in the prejudicial marginalisation… second of all, shut ya lipz, and wait in line like everyone else”.”
The poster complained they couldn’t find a seat and that the bar queue stretched for miles, requesting an express lane be set up (presumably for racist assholes?)
The confession continued: “I will empty my wallet for you any day of the week. All I ask in return is for easy access to one measly Shadz jug.” To which one commenter replied they’d gladly empty the poster’s wallet for them.
Craccum’s suggestion to the poster is that within two miles (or 3.2 kilometres) of Shadz, you would be at the Viaduct, where you can take your money to Leo Molloy’s bar—because it seems UoA students definitely don’t want you around.
