The U.S. basically threw a group of hurt, damaged people (Micronesians) into the environment of a angry, confused people (Kanaka) and that's the perfect solution to them because they know instead of fighting the U.S. we're going to take it out on each other. And its working, Micronesians get bullied in Hawai'i and they must not know why because to them they're entitled to be here. To us Kanaka, you guys being here and living (for free) on our occupied land that we're trying to get control of, is a slap to our face. You're just adding to the problem.

All I'm saying is Kanaka's need to understand where Micronesians are coming from, and Micronesians needs to try and understand where we're coming from. In the end, Micronesians, I'm sorry but you guys really have no right to be here.. But in your guys' defense, racism isn't right and I don't condone it and I apologize on behalf of my people.

So I guess 1/2 of you has to leave .I like the part where you type occupied lands. So the real culprit the occupier's get to stay? Dude you have to learn how to add first before you can be taken seriously.

Why don't you people from Chuuk just start identifying yourselves as Chuukese instead of Micronesian because you're all giving the rest of us Micronesians a bad name. Stop hiding behind the name and man up. Everyone just please start representing your own island. MICRONESIA is just the name of our region. It doesn't mean we're like Polynesians who share same ancestry and culture. Don't encourage this "Micro" labeling bullshit. For Hawaii, which promotes the spirit of Aloha, to be one of the most culturally diverse places on Earth, you'd think that the aloha spirit would transcend hate and racism. The truth is, its exactly the opposite. Compared to the mainland, the level of hate, ignorance, and racism here in Hawaii is appalling. Coming from the Mainland, I was truly disgusted by the level of ignorance and racism by many local people. Granted, there are also just as much good-hearted locals and residents as well. Even so, prejudice and discrimination is worse off in Hawaii than in the mainland.
Just as Soles revile Tongans, so too do Kosraens revile Marshallese.
Good point that calling them collectively "micros" makes no sense, and is the same as calling Maori, Soles and Hawaiians collectively "polys."

So thank you, Haole, for sharing your thoughts.
My post was after all asking what "haoles like you" thought about the whole thing.
Now we know.
