* In this letter, the writer who seems to be haole states that President Bush doesn't know his history. S/he also points out the travesties committed against Native Americans. (One of these travesties being committed is also by many Mixed Asians.) I especially like it when someone who seems haole speaks out against injustices as they (na haole or "haole people") represent about 74% of the total population in the U.S. Anyway... here is the letter:

Bush should read up on American history

In his inaugural speech, President Bush stated that "From the day of our founding, we have proclaimed that every man and woman on this Earth has rights, and dignity and matchless value."

Did someone forgot to tell the president about slavery in America, and the "separate-but-equal" policy that kept black people in poverty long after the Civil War, and about women's long struggle to be granted the right to vote, and about America's part in the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy and the theft of land from the Hawaiian people, and about the slaughter of Native Americans, and about the bitter civil rights struggle of the '60s? America's record of "proclaiming that every man and woman on this earth has rights and dignity" is not as pure as the president claimed.
