Yo!

This attitude really pisses me off.

Boohoohoo. This guy needs to shut up already and let the Hawaiians speak for themselves. Seriously... this guy who seems HAOLE is basically telling people how to react to actions. Fucking annoying. It also goes to show you how some people think that their paradigm is other people's paradigm. It doesn't work out that way! That is, he is probably not Hawaiian so he doesn't know how it is to be constantly reminded of being fucked over due to one's existence. Of course not all Hawaiians feel fucked over but that doesn't mean that other Hawaiians don't feel fucked over! Like Sandra Puanani Burgess who doesn't feel fucked over probably because she married a rich Haole man who happens to be an attorney by the name of William Burgess another anti-Hawaiian who ONLY targets Hawaiians. To date we don't even know her lineage as she claims to be Hawaiian. I have asked her repeatedly and so far... nothing... but I digress heehee Anyway here is his letter... of stupidity:


Akaka bill favors 1 race, is bad legislation

The Akaka bill is not only unconstitutional, it is bad legislation. It is unconstitutional in that it aims to organize a sovereign government entity based on ancestry, a proxy for race in this case. Participation in the proposed governing entity is clearly limited to individuals of a Hawaiian ancestry, violating the equal protection clause of the 14th and voting rights clause of the 15th amendments. The United States is founded on the principle of equality for all citizens to enjoy certain rights, liberties and representation.

Furthermore, if a group of citizens received past unjust treatment, we abide by the practice of acknowledging the injustice, making reparations and ensuring equality of rights moving forward. We do not create within our country distinct sovereign governments based on association to that particular group. No such government entity exists for women, African Americans or Japanese Americans.Why are our elected officials attempting to illegally organize a race-based government that will segregate our nation?

I implore Senators Inouye and Akaka to work within the framework of the Constitution and vote against the Akaka bill.

"Some at UH and OHA are trying to suppress the truth."

Then I received this email about the word "Haole." Collapse )


"Aroha, actually the "ha'ole"s changed the hawaiian language by getting rid of the letters "R" "T" "D" "V" & "B". In my reasearch of the hawaiian language their was absolutely no instance of the letter "L" in the hawaiian language prior to european settlement. so the correct rendering of Haole is Ha'ore (ha meaning breath and "ore" meaning without, prouncuonced "hah-odeh" like the way a spanish person says an r. some at UH and OHA are trying to suppress the truth."

It amuses me because if I use the word "Haolegirl" here and since "haole" isn't a Hawaiian word since it's written and Hawaiian is spoken and not written then what the hell am I supposed to do *LOL* To be Hawaiian would require me not to write a damn thing in English and not to write any Hawaiian words period and I find THAT very amusing haha That is why I am a proponent of everything Hawaiian AND American. I like both Worlds. Unfortunately some people don't understand that and/or they don't understand how it is to be Hawaiian AND American. They mistakenly think that we HAVE to choose. I choose NOT to choose *LOL* Seriously... we don't have to choose. We can do whatever the Hell we want to do as long as it's within the law and this relates to sovereignty but I digress heehee Anyway this poses a threat to people like Ken Conklin, William Burgess, and to other anti-Hawaiians because they are not Hawaiian AND American. They fear the unknown. They FEAR period and that is why there are so many people who are racist towards us.
