Billy T James: Racial Equality

Billy T James - the Maori dude - was a Kiwi comedian most of us grew up with in Un Zud. Much treasured and much loved. He allowed us to laugh at ourselves, and others. He died in 1991.

In case you're not sure on accents, the guy on the boat is from South Africa (he mumbles it in the vid). This would've been made in the 80's when Apartheid was in full swing in SA. It kinda points out - not so subtly - how people are measured in NZ.
