Yo!

The Few Rude People in Hawaii And How to Say "Butt" or "Ass" in Hawaiian


One thing that annoys me since I am American by nationality (as well as Hawaiian by nationality) is that a few Americans in Hawaii are embarrassing with their stereotypes about Hawaiians which is a symptom of racism against Hawaiians. Here is an example with my response below LOL




Crazy Person:

There is no 'Host Culture' except the USA!

Ever notice that the so-called Hawaiian protectors of the 'aina treat the land like crap? It's true. Go out to the Leeward side or 'Nalo or up Waiahole side on Oahu or on Maui in some areas or any other enclave of the host culture and in general here is what you will see:

-garages overflowing with ancient junk ranging from toxic chemicals to flammable substances to cockroach infested paper and cardboard

-dead batteries all over the chain link yard and weeds and grass out of control

-usually one or more broke down cars or car hulks partially covered with weeds

-beaches with complete homeless villages, and they are as crappy and filled with junk as the houses (Sure seems likes the so-called host culture cannot take care of its own people--what's all that bullshit about 'ohana?)

-diapers in the bushes along the shoreline and empty paper wrappers from fast food places blowing in the wind

-filthy public restrooms, torn apart with broken facilities and plumbing

-giant trucks and pit bulls and bad attitude, dangerous nights filled with drugs and alcohol everywhere

-trees killed by charcoal dumping at the base and public amentities like benches and tables destroyed by vandals

That's what you will see. I guarantee it.
It isn't 'cultural' its laziness and sloven livin. Totally opposite of what you will see in a haole neighborhood or one where there's mostly asian residents. This is just a plain fact and all you need do is open your eyes and look.

Why the difference? I think it's the entitlement mentality - sucking at the USA welfare tit. The attitude that somebody, somewhere, a long time ago "stole" the 'aina from Hawaiians and therefore they need not be responsible for their actions. It's really pissing and moaning that's keeping the host culture down. Where are the leaders of this community? Yeah I know, wearing red shirts, screaming onipa'a and thinking they will lead a sovereign nation someday. IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. Especially when they cannot even lead their people to a clean, safe neighborhood and take care of what they have now.

These people need to straighten up and because Hawaii is getting bad reputation as a visitor destination and tourism will go down and that will hurt everyone's pocketbook. It may be that the true Hawaiian host culture is really not worth saving. Perhaps we should do what others have done with backward aboriginal cultures that cannot make the grade in the 21st century: simply keep the best pieces of it immortalized in our books, music, hotels, attractions, theme parks and museums while letting the ugly reality fade away.

Anyway, an umbrella in a tropical drink is far more pleasant than a 12 volt in a field of weeds or a pile of rocks.

If THAT's the new Hawaiian nation I want nothing to do with it nor would any sane person.




My response:


How do you know these people who pollute are Hawaiian?



Did you ask them?


There is PEOPLE pollution in Hawaii which includes but is not limited to Hawaiians. Others pollute too but no... dey gotta blame Hawaiians. No blame Hawaiians. Other people contribute to PEOPLE pollution too lol



Seriously... did this dude ASK these people if they are Hawaiian? No... he pulled it out of his elemu (pronounced "eh-leh-moo" which can mean "butt" or "ass" in the Hawaiian language.)

The racist ignorant person in Hawaii struck again


The crazy ignorant dude struck again. This time I am putting my words in red as in "STOP the ignorance," "STOP lying about Hawaiians, " and "STOP being racist against Hawaiians." Since I am Haole, Hawaiian, Chinese, and Portuguese I would do the same for all of the aforementioned. Unfortunately there are only about 401, 062 Hawaiians left in this world and it seems like we are attacked more than ever by people like this racist ignorant dude:


Ignorant Dude: "But to be fair you r right they aren't necessarily Hawaiian- just low life locals who think the law does not apply to them and they can throw their junk anywhere, allow there houses and property to fall into disrepair, live at public beaches and that homelessness and living off welfair is a lifestyle choice."



Me: "Yeah... no blame it all on the Hawaiians. There are immigrants who move to the islands who contribute to the destruction. They also tend to get welfare as in free medical and housing compared to others so don't take it out on the Hawaiians who have a legal right and are beneficiaries of some programs through the Admissions Act which is a federal public trust by the way:

as in mandated by federal law.


As for those people who pollute... why not take it up with the local government to crack down on it? Instead of bitching about it here?"




Ignorant Person: "Is it any wonder why everyone is against both the Akaka bill AND
allowing 'natives' with one drop of some imaginary blood percentage set up a racial government because of a revolution, not an overthrow, that their great, great, great kapuna lost?"





Me: "Not everyone is against the Akaka Bill and against obeying laws. And it's K-U-P-U-N-A. "Kapuna" can be "Land section, road, stream, and spring, Kaunakakai qd., Molokai. Lit., the spring" in English. It's KUPUNA. At least learn how to say it correctly before bitching about it."



Ignorant Person: "I wonder if Hawaiian or Aloha Airlines... you know the ones who are fighting compeition like other new local airlines and the new super ferry ships- are doing anything for the Hawaiian people? How about free interisland airfair for documented native hawaiian kapuna 70 and older?"



Me: "Hawaiian Airlines hires alot of Hawaiians. They are not racist against Hawaiians. As for these freebies... they are not freebies from the government. That is a misnomer. Instead these are legally mandated albeit FEDERALLY

Like Kaonohi said... if you don't like it then LEAVE. It's as simple as that.
