* Someone told me that www.RealHapas.com was mentioned in the hapas community AGAIN:

http://www.livejournal.com/community/hapas/152404.html?nc=10


It's not my fault that people feel guilty about it. Afterall, many of them ARE disrespecting Native Americans. In this case, Hawaiians... so yeah... they probably do feel guilty.



Can you spot the alamihi crabs in this picture?

(picture from http://www.maunalaniculture.org/riddles/)



I was not surprised that another Hawaiian wrote this:


"haolegirl and I are in disagreement.

I don't take offense when non-Hawaiians use the word hapa, she does. I don't feel that the use of it from non-Hawaiians constitutes co-opting the culture of my ancestors and myself. She does.

Foreign words make their way into the English language all the time. Taboo and tatoo are of Polynesian origin. Soup is of French origin, (or so said my high school French teacher). I'm sure we can go on and on. Languages and words evolve. As long as people know where those words originate, for me personally, that's good enough.

I'm not going to go out of my way and devote negative energy towards other people simply because they use a word to describe themselves. I don't feel it takes anything away from my culture nor do I feel it takes anything away from my ethnic/cultural identity. Additionally, there are other people who seek to destroy and eliminate Hawaiian programs, rights etc. I'd rather devote my energy toward those injustices."





It's typical for some Hawaiians to think this way with a colonized mind. It's funny how this person says that they'd rather devote energy toward other injustices yet other injustices cannot be addressed when people do not respect Hawaiians or 'oiwi. The entire Hawaiian culture is based on what? It's people.


Also what has this person done to help Hawaiians?

1) He mentions that he's Hawaiian without stating any of his genealogy so I don't know if he's Hawaiian or not.
2) He states that he will be applying to law school.
3) He doesn't write in Hawaiian which suggests that he doesn't even know his ancestors' language so why is he commenting on the language when he doesn't even know it.

Uh... what has he been doing to help Hawaiians?

I wasn't surprised that he spoke for me when that is not my opinion regarding this matter. It's amusing though... when people make ASSumptions like that. Worse... he states that "Hawaiian" isn't a Hawaiian word yet instead of saying, "He Hawai'i au" or "He oiwi au" he states, "Yes I'm Hawaiian." Any Hawaiian who speaks Hawaiian (or olelo oiwi) would not state, "Yes, I'm Hawaiian." Instead they would say, "Ae... he hawaii au" or "Ae... he oiwi au." Then again it seems as though he acts like such a Hawaiian language expert when he doesn't even know the language. He hupo o ia.


It's the Alamihi Crab Syndrome. Every time another Hawaiian does some work that gets recognition another Hawaiian just has to try to undermine them because they weren't the ones who thought of doing something about it. Or... they are not the ones who are getting the attention so they dismiss the work for the sake of the good of all Hawaiians. However I am an atypical Hawaiian. I'm relatively wealthy and secondly... I'm brutally honest. Also I do not care if I'm well-liked. I already have a man and I'm not looking for ass like some people. Then again I can see why overall Hawaiians do not get ahead because among Hawaiians Hawaiians are their worst enemies... and he is one of them. An alamihi crab. Actually he is the epitome of the Alamihi Crab.

However, I know many Hawaiians who are not like him and are not like Alamihi Crabs. That is, if the Hawaiian people and their language are not respected then how can Hawaiian programs, rights, etc be respected? That is, the Hawaiian people are the core of the Hawaiian culture and are the reason why I've created and maintained www.RealHapas.com as a reminder that many people are still disrespecting Hawaiians who are Native Americans. Period. I dedicate the webpage to all of those Hawaiians... who aren't Alamihi Crabs and no... __ ____ _____ _____ ___ ____ law school.



I will be asking my Hawaiian ancestors to ______ ____ so that _____ _______ __________ ________ __________ law school.


Now I know who was the person who most probably told Ian Lind that I had two of his pictures on my Livejournal. Then again I had the chance to communicate with one of the Kaho'olawe Seven, Ian Lind.




For the other Buddhists out there... please be mindful of Hawaiians and their language.


And for the other Chinese out there... Kung Hee Fat Choy!


And for other Hawaiians and non-Hawaiians who are Alamihi Crabs... stay the fuck away from me! I will be ignoring you so consider yourself warned. Then again I've banned some people from commenting on any of my journals/communities *LOL*

No... I don't lurk *L*

As for Wordpress I was going to use it too but it seemed too complicated so I went with Blogger and so far three of my other sites are already popping up on Yahoo and on Google LOL

I used a different server. It uploaded rather fast and was easy to install. It was not as complicated as I thought. I just need to work on a new Template later today or tomorrow morning.

I am hoping to get a XHTML compliant forum to work too. Once I get this installed, I can finally move the Amerasian World Community forum over. Way things are going, AmerasianWorld.com and AmerasianFoundation.org will become one website soon.

Well for the bloggie it only took about 20 minutes to set up and so far three of them have been picked up by Yahoo and by Google. That's within a matter of a week or so.

Anyway I need to update www.MixedAsians.com too... just have a forum and nothing else. That's right... have people talk about themselves haha Seriously... I like your idea about combining your sites. It's better off that way.

Word Press took less than 5 minutes to set up. It was quite easy.

Yabb Forum seems ready. If the internet cafe does not close this week for Tet, I will try to install it and see how easy it is. I remember the last time it was a pain.

Well I didn't like the layout of WordPress but all that matters is that you're happy with it. Then again you always go for the more complicated one. That's Kevin... the Complicated One *LOL*

You can create your own templates, etc. I will keep messing around with mine until I get what I want.

You know, you can just make MixedAsians.com a blog site for mixed Asians. Try it. Blogs and forums have a lot of similarities.

I really don't want to devote much time to it. That's why it will be a forum where Mixed Asians can mack together. I mean... meat each other. I mean MEET each other *LOL* Anyway I already have http://www.thehawaiiancommunity.com done except for the masked domain since I'm having it forwarded to the Real Hapas forum only because someone renewed HawaiianCommunity.com and I've been waiting for a year so I decided to go with www.TheHawaiianCommunity.com ANYWAY I don't want a blog for it unless "F" wants to maintain it. I'll ask him but if he says no then it will be a forum only.
