Britain regrets Maori killings after Captain Cook’s arrival in 1769

Britain has expressed regret to the Maoris, the indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand, for crimes committed against their ancestors when explorer James Cook arrived in New Zealand in 1769. Activists claim, less than two hours after Captain Cook and his crew landed, they had committed atrocities, including murder. Britain’s high commissioner met Maori leaders to recognize the killings.

Retarded, sounds like self-defense not wanton genocide. Regrets expressed by people who were not involved in the events to people who were not there and who were not affected by the event either... is just pointless posturing and white guilt appeasement.
