Localism attitude

« on: May 14 2006 01:05:00 »

I lived in Mokeleia and surfed North Shore in the 60's as a kid, met Duke K just before he died. He was very gracious guy. HOwever, Even back then you had locals wth bad attitudes about haoles and locals (full Hawaiian blood) who are still my friends after all these years.  I left there in 70 and never went back. I live and surf here in So Cal and some locals are idiots and others are cool. People will never change. So sad.

Less than 1% of Hawaiians are full Hawaiian and 98% of them live on the Robinson Island. They are more American than they care to admit, meaning they are mutts, part Philippino, Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, Samoan, etc... They're just bent that the haoles are better surfers, and this is the truth. There are almost no true Hawaiians. Sure if they're big and fat and jacked and eating a Spam sandbone they're probably playing up their local roots. They'll start their "we grew here you flew here" routine, meanwhile Grandpa Miguel is an illegal that just paddeled over from Mindanoa in 1970, and grandma Shinobu stayed after a tourist jaunt in the 60's. Bullcrap. I don't want to hear it. I have no problem witht the true Hawaiians, the thing is you can never find them. It's these other half-breeds that claim full Hawaiian blood who are always making an issue. Whatever.

This was made so that haoles could cut down hawaiians and locals here whilst remaining anonomous and at a safe distance.  With that said I think your comments are very unfair, you generalize all of us and insult our culture.  Were not all fat, and did you know that were not even part of the top ten fattest states.  Your right frankie most of us are half breeds and proud of it.  Decades of discrimination towards brown and black people have us sick.  And now that the white man gets a little off his own medicine he goes and cries about how unfair it is.  My grandfather and grandmother were full hawaiian, my father is half hawaiian half japanese, and my mother is full filipino, which makes me half filipino a quarter jap and a quarter hawaiian.  How mush hawaiian are you?

Does your reply hold any weight, cause if your not hawaiian then you wouldn't know and your reply is just another racist haole attempting to destroy other cultures.  I got no problem with white people that respect our culture like LUKE.  But people like you Frankie are as much a disgrace to this nation as Baptists are.  Hawaii is a state, but a state with a different history.  A history of missionaries beating the hawaiian language out of us along with surfing and hula.  A history of a up and coming super power throwing around it's weight by invading a small island.  Were not afraid of haoles were afraid of our culture being once again taken away.

Support Kamehameha schools and keep the non-hawaiians out of Kamehameha.  Kamehameha schools is funded by a private trust (Princess Pauahi Bishop) and receives no federal or state funding.  However a lawyer from California wants to make it open to all races while it is still being paid for by her trust.  Unjust and ludicrus is this act, and Princess Pauahi bishop clearly stated that this school was for the native children of hawaii.  So tired of all the rich lawyers and polititions sticking there filthy hands into hawaii's cookie jar and leaving us nothing but a few crumbs.  I hope that lawyer goes to waianae one day and gets beaten and chopped alive while watching his hand get fed to the hungry sharks.  Ha'aheo o' Hawai'i, He keiki li'ili'i o' hawaii pono maika'i a'e manawa e holomua.

Frankie, Frankie, Frankie..........here you are again. You apologised for being a dick in the 'Hossegor to Mundaka' thread which made me feel as if maybe I had connected with you on a spiritual level.
But you're at it again...... take deep breaths....think of the ocean......banish all negative thoughts from your mind.....envelop yourself in mother nature's beautiful gift to us....the earth
By the way, you spelt Mindanao wrong

Frankie,

Have you ever been to Hawai'i?  Or are you just spouting off with no idea of the truth?

Localism?  Sure it exists, but a good attitude will carry you a long way towards connecting with your brown skinned brothers and sisters. (especially the sistahs!)  They are truly a beautiful people.
Hawaiians are friendly and giving.  If you need and don't have, and they do have, they usually share.
Easy, brah!  It's a way of life.
