Will someone please convince me why it is politically correct for native Hawaiians to expect special, exclusive rights in the form of their own sovereign nation or passage of the race-based Akaka Bill, but it is anathema for Hawaii's gay and lesbian couples to expect EQUAL rights under American law in the form of civil marriage in the same state?

It's based on n-a-t-i-o-n-a-l-i-t-y. Not ethnicity. The Kingdom of Hawai'i consisted of many people. Not just Hawaiians by ethnicity.
