An outsider's viewpoint about Kamehameha Schools

Okay this one is obvious. This letter is written by someone who lives near Kapalama Heights which has alot of lease hold homes. These homes sit on property which Kamehameha owns and leases to homeowners. That is why it's called "leasehold." Anyway... a resident writes the following:

Here's how to handle it

Kamehameha solution: Open the school, charge $40,000 per year and create a Native Hawaiian scholarship for qualifying individuals.

The only problem is that it's not good to dictate to others what to do, think, feel. etc. That's what he is doing. Therefore it shows some disrespect of the Hawaiian people. Suggesting that we don't know what the fuck we're doing. It implies that a haole knows the answer. That is why many people shun outsiders. Its due to their attitude.

Also his solution is unrealistic. Punahou School charges $12,050 per year. The $40,000 price seems unreachable and it would also have non-Hawaiians attending... not Hawaiians... which is illegal. The will explicitly states that preference be given to orphans and to indigent children with preference to children of aboriginal blood. Bernice Pauahi Bishop sure was smart. SHE KNEW that Hawaiian children would be attacked. That is why I love her so much. SHE KNEW and she did something about it.
