RE: Why are the Hawaii locals all a$$holes?« on: November 30 2007 04:11:00 »
hawaiians are just as prejiduceas every other minority . They were repressed 150 yearys ago and their grandkids will still be blaming our grandkids. Nothing will ever change.

I wish the 'boys' could meet all the 'tom' pseudonyms and show him what respect means; while I've been asked to leave the break at Olowalu, Mauai, I was also given multiple waves at 4' Honolua, so, no complaints. The Hawaiians are still being screwed, but, like mainland Native Americans who now bring the cancer of 'tribal gaming and self-reliance'!!! into our communities, who would guide the lineage of the 'DUKE' into constructive inheritance of Aloha? Rell Sunn, we need your spirit now!

This might be a dumb question, but. What consider, disrespecting your culture, and dropping in while you surf? just curious.

Let me ask you a question. Do you celebrate Thanksgiving, Independence Day, Memorial Day, and Veterans Day? If so then consider yourself a hypocrite because these holidays originated on the mainland and if your such an advocate of your own culture and dismiss the mainlands influence then you should be voluntarily working on those days. That is, if you work at all.

Riff....wrote "Learn the rules or prepare to get worked." Whose rules are you talking about Riff? 1) The ones that benefit you or your buddies, or 2) the ones that benefit everyone equally. If your answer is 1) then you are just validating how selfishness is the foundation of localism. "Prepare to get worked" merely implies that you are incapable of resolving conflict in a reasonable manner, thus reinforcing the negative perception of the culture you claim to represent.

Ha, k.d. lang, don't fret so much ,brudda! Riff and his brother Raff, er, Tom just try to instigate the soul in us; Tom and his vermin (who I assure you will never be found in anything more radical then Kammieland or Turtle's) may be actually doing us a service by keeping us honest and teaching us to not taking anything personally; the Hawaiians were screwed, but haven't done a stellar job of preserving paradise, but, nonetheless just show respect, tolerance, and support a culturally-maturing community!

Is Hawaii not a State Of The United States ? It doesn't matter where these Holidays originated from. Mainland or not.
Hawaii, is part of the USA, Though they live by the standerds of the customs of their old culture. Fact, Their pretty die hard over them. Their sacred. So living by their rules is a very honerable, respectable thing to do. This includes, Staying off sacred beaches, respecting the locals, Not being greedy when it comes to the waves, And not snaking them. Why do alot of you have a problem with this ?

Wow- Tom, I'm impressed by your alter-ego and your newfound realization about respect for Da Hui! Maybe, we'll lighten up because we know you're probably smart and creative, just lonely; I'd even surf with you if you took your meds!
