Akaka Bill: Another Statement from Someone Who Uses the Akaka Bill to Single Out and Target Hawaiians Based on Their National Origin, Ko Hawai’i Pae Aina, While Discussing the Akaka Bill

Here is another racist statement about Hawaiians being made by Ken Conklin in the letters to the editor of West Hawai’i Today:

“Once the Akaka bill is enacted and signed into law, it will put in motion a series of legal, economic, political, and social changes that will shake apart Hawaii to its very foundations and inundate our aloha with the floodwaters of racial separatism.”

Seen here.

Racial separatism?

Ko Hawai’i Pae Aina also known as the Hawaiian Kingdom is and has always been racially INCLUSIVE.

Some personal examples of people who are not Hawaiian by ethnicity but are Hawaiian by nationality:

My Portuguese great grandfather Ernesto deSilva who was Portuguese by ethnicity and Hawaiian by nationality

My Chinese great grandfather Goo Ah Mong who was Chinese by ethnicity and Hawaiian by nationality

To single out and target any group of people based on their national origin is racism. This should NEVER be tolerated.

In this example Ken Conklin spreads mistruths about Hawaiians while discussing the Akaka Bill while singling out and targeting Hawaiians based on their national origin.

Unfortunately this is another example of how some people are using the Akaka Bill as a tool to state racist things about Hawaiians based on their national origin.

Hopefully though their reasons for stalling the Akaka Bill twice before in the last 10 years differ from Hawaiians’ the Republican party can and should put an end to the Akaka Bill once and for all.

By doing so these people like Ken Conklin would stop using the Akaka Bill to make racist statements about Hawaiians based on their national origin, Ko Hawai’i Pae Aina.
