Rally for Hawaiians this Saturday at Iolani Palace



A rally will be held this Saturday at Iolani Palace on Oahu after the Ninth Circuit Court ruled that the Kamehameha Schools' Hawaiians-only policy is unconstitutional. Please attend! (But don't protest the protestors lol) Some people may or may not know but Kamehameha Schools is the only school for Hawaiian children which is similar to the schools that they have for native Americans. (I'm an alumna of that school.)This rally is also extremely important to me so please show up if you can.

For the record it's not a racist school. In fact I am English, Hawaiian, Chinese, and Portuguese. I MARRIED a Haole dude with blonde hair and blue eyes. I am no exception. In fact the founder of the school, Bernice Pauahi Bishop, married a Haole dude named Charles Reed Bishop. The argument that it's racist against other ethnicities really is invalid since most Hawaiians are mixed breeds/poi dogs/ etc. To quote my former Honors U.S. History teacher, Leroy Bass, who was popolo (or "black) "I love the Hawaiian people because they are so nice." It's true:
