Akaka Bill: Another Example of Racist Statements Being Said About Hawaiians When Discussing the Akaka Bill

On December 17, 2009 the Wall Street Journal ran a story about the Akaka Bill. It epitomizes the racist statements being made about Hawaiians singling out and targeting Hawaiians based on their national origin, Ko Hawai’i Pae Aina.

Excerpts:

President Obama speaks proudly of his childhood in Hawaii, so we wonder what the state’s voters think of his support for a bill that would redistribute its wealth based on race.

Actually the Hawaiian Kingdom and its people are significant different than America and Americans. It is a nation… not a race as many citizens of the Hawaiian Kingdom were not Hawaiian/oiwi. For example one of my great grandfathers Ernesto DeSilva was Portuguese by ethnicity and Hawaiian by nationality.

Sponsored by Senator Daniel Akaka, the bill would transfer a percentage of public-owned lands to a native Hawaiian government within the state of Hawaii.

Actually Hawaiians and their legal heirs never consented to transfer their royal patent and/or title to anyone or to any entity. They reserve their rights to their property now and forever. This includes but is not limited to private property owned by ali’i. Maka ainana looked over the land. Fortunately they still do and will continue to do so.

Under the Akaka bill, someone will have to divine exactly who qualifies as a Native Hawaiian.

Not exactly. Hawaiians define who they are.

By the way if someone were to say racist things about Jewish people singling out and targeting Jewish people based on their national origin they would be in ALOT of trouble.

Unfortunately some people use the Akaka Bill to say racist things about Hawaiians singling out and targeting them based on their national origin, Ko Hawai’i Pae Aina.
