By using 1778 as the cutoff point for being considered Hawaiian ignores the people from other nations who later came to live in Hawaii. Those who were citizens of Hawaii and who were here for the overthrow were impacted in equal fashion with those of Hawaiian blood. That the Akaka bill ignores the impact the the U.S. supposedly had on them demonstrates the racial basis of the bill.

We've had enough of OHA, and all those hangers on at their silly "conventions" frightening the rest of us with the prospect that they want to tell us what to do.

1894 was created during Queen Lilioukalani charge
of treason by non-Hawaiians. This was an illegal
