Thanks again. As I suspected you can only be brown or Asian to be Hawaiian. If you're a white Hawaiian mutt, it's just not the same. People just need to learn that man is migratory. Race is transient. End of story. There is no permaneent state or race of man, it's always changing. Hawaiians are Indonesians mixed with polynesians etc, etc.. Mexicans are Native Americans with Spanish who are Iberians with Moors who are Berbers with Arabs and so on snd so on. Americans (Hawaiians are Americans) are mutts, half-breeds, evolving races. Man is always changing, trying to keep "Hawaiian" defined in blood and not in birthplace is a fool's task.

It's always the same ignorant people trying to play up their race and roots. Sure, humans have treated humans badly throughout history, and will continue to, but to just blame it on white people would be ridiculous. If Hawaii was lost to the Japanese in WWII, I can tell you with utmost certainty that there wouldn't be any "natives" left to complain about it.

Saving tips & after school work $ for 3 yrs, I first came to Hawaii after graduating high school in '63. Heard all kinds of stories re: localism, bad treatment by Hawaiians, yet locals gave me a ride from the airport with my 9'6" board. i surfed with them almost everyday. Got dropped in on by Aussies, not locals, who had very surly atitude at that time, IMHO. I NEVER had a problem with locals cause I respected the fact that they did have to put up w/ lots of haoles clogging up good surf spots. Returned many times, lived on Maui & only had one problem w/ local grocer: charged me more $ for food than locals. Now only surf longboards & have more trouble with young locals at Malibu who don't know me (I've surfed Bu 45+yrs), than I do when I go to the islands. Don't surf Sunset, Pipe, Hanalua, but#3's, oh yea. Give props & respect and, hey, have FUN

The golden rule is the simplest solution.

You came here in '63?? Wow, I thought I was an oldie, but you got me beat agewise by about a decade. I've lived here since before the state was a state but I was just a little kid back then. I've never had a problem with the local's attitude, except for at V-land, dem buggahs don't play nice. Good advice on not surfing Sunset, that's my fave wave and it's already crowded. (O.K. you can surf it once it gets above 15 feet, that's when I'm on the shore.)
Eh Puna, how's your appendix?

Frankie say 'The golden rule is the simplest solution'
Pity you dont practice what you preach
Or are you just letting us know it's the simplest solution, but you haven't fathomed how to put it into practice?
