Petition update

So far the petition has 1102 signatures. A few comments that I like are as follows:

"Shame! Shame on you! Have you not forgotten what has happened to Hawai`i Nei? I cannot and will not let another group of ANNEXATIONISTS rape our heritage for your own greed! Does not the United States and Corporate America understand that we were a fully functional and stabalized government? Do you not understand that our islands were stolen, our queen overthrown, and our heritage are almost on the brink of extinction! No, I dont think that you do...you see, Corporate America only cares for one thing. . . .Financial gain. We are Hawaiians, by blood, by spirit, and by God. And nothing or no one can take that away from me or my people."


"DO NOT CONTINUE WITH THE EXPLOITATION OF THE HAWAIIAN LANGUAGE OR CULTURE. AN AUTOMOBILE IS NOT IN ANY FORM RELAVENT TO THE PERPETUATION OF THE NATIVE HAWAIIAN PEOPLE NOR IT IS PART OF THEIR SELF-DETERMINATION. PLEASE STOP!!!"

"i agree. this is VERY offensive. Hawaiian cutlture is not for sale, it should not be prostitued. By naming this car the "Kahuna", Dodge perpetuates the ignorance which has consumed our people since the overthrow and even earlier. It is yet another example of Haoles taking advantage of us. They did it in 1893, and they're doing it in 2004."




Note: For people who claim that Hawaiians dont care... obviously THEY DO. Also it should be noted that Hawaiians clearly do not appreciate Hawaiian words being raped... like the word "kahuna" like the word "hapa." Yes... HAWAIIANS DO CARE. For people who think that Hawaiians dont give a fuck about our language... now these people can think twice about it before raping our language.



If you havent already done so... read and sign the online petition at the link below:

Hopefully juan70x will be able to relate the rape of the word "kahuna" to the rape of the word "hapa." Well if he doesnt I guess I will *LOL*
