Scan EVERYTHING and make HAWAII's Story ACESSIBLE to the World!

Bishop guards Hawaiian history like a dirty secret while promoting idiotic exhibits like grossology and other worthless "upgrades".

o.k...dumb ****, since you didn't catch it the first time around, I'm not white/caucasion, whatever group classification you want to use with that race. What a dumb ****...step off already and lay off the meth, please!
You're kinda sensitive for someone who dishes so freely.

Don't cry. It's just words.

Go back and look at the things you wrote to John Kamaka (not that I'm defending him or anything--I think he's interesting but a little off centered).
After you have read what you said, go look in the mirror to see what a mean-spirited, rude, base hypocrite looks like.

Wipe away your tears first so you can get a better look.

And since you MISSED IT.
Check it out--Here's the definition of "caucasion" from the Urban Dictionary
1. Caucasion
How DUMB PEOPLE (usually posting in online personals) spell "caucasian". Usually, white men or women trying to exclude nonwhites. The term is often misspelled because these people think it's unlikely that "asian" to be contained inside a term meaning "white people".

( http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php ...)
I never said you were white. I implied you were dumb for continuing to spell it wrong.

May peas be with you.

if people knew what a treasure trove of hawaiian artifacts and documents are rotting in the Bishop they would be outraged.
it is so sad how little they have made acessible to the public and almost nothing is online.
Very true. Why is it that these precious artificacts, at the very least, can't even make it to some form of online catalog to be viewed? Seems reasonable...
