Akaka Bill: Another Example of Some People Using the Akaka Bill to Single Out and Target Hawaiians Based on Their National Origin, Ko Hawai’i Pae Aina

Conservative American News recently posted a diatribe about the Akaka Bill. In it they state some racist things about Hawaiians based on their national origin. This should never be tolerated for ANY group of people.

An excerpt:

There is the additional complicating factor that it’s not clear just who is a Native Hawaiian. Racial intermarriage has been common in Hawaii for a century and a half, and some have estimated that there are only a few hundred people left all of whose ancestors were Native Hawaiian. The Akaka bill provides that a federal commission determine who qualifies for inclusion in the new tribe. Anyone see an opportunity for political favoritism here?
