"Championing labor rights" versus "Championing respect for the Hawaiian culture"

One hardly reads a Hawaiian portrayed in the media as "championing respect for the Hawaiian culture." Therefore some Hawaiians create media using different mediums to get our message across.

Case in point:



Maui councilman was a champion for labor rights

See http://starbulletin.com/2004/05/21/news/story2.html

It's a double standard to have Japanese championing "Japanese" rights and/or "Japanese" culture and/or "labor" rights but when a Hawaiian speaks they call her a bitch. Eventually people will understand that when a Hawaiian speaks up perhaps they are "championing Hawaiian rights."
