I married George despite the fact He was a Haole. When you're a local, you don't marry no dumb Haole (I didn't, I married a smart one.) If you want to see racist, come Hawaii.

Aloha,
Renee

OOh, I wanna play. Since I'm "half-and-half" can I just be half racist against my other half?

I agree Renee if any white person wants to understand what some blacks have experienced let them live in Hawaii for a coupe of years. they will get a full does of reverse prejudice.

Sure you can as long as you do not like Obama!



If you are anti Obama you are a racist, it is as simple as that.

Jae Byrd,

I remember when we moved back to Hanalei, the boys were accepted by the locals because the were "the boys from that Mahor girl who married the Haole". Even after 50 years Dad is still an outsider! It is only getting worse, and from what I see it "ain't gonna get betta".

Love ya,
Mom

As a tourist, I never noticed that, but then we (tourist's) never get that opportunity to co-mingle with the local's unless you get away from the tourist trap, which in hindsight I wish we would have done that.
