In Korea, Thailand and Vietniem where you find a lot of half-breeds because of U.S. Military presence at one time or another, these group are the most discriminated against because they are half-Korean; half Thai; and half-Vietnamese. I'm sure it occurs in other countries.

With that said, you cannot find to many full-blooded hawaiians in the island these days. I wouldn't be surprise that those who want to create their own Hawaiian nation are half-hawaiians.

At one time, the majority population in Hawaii was of course full-blooded Hawaiians. Would they discriminate a half-hawaiian /half Chinese; half hawaiian / half filipino; or half hawaiian half haole or hapa haole?

Many half or even less hawaiian blood living here have change their first name to a hawaiian name.... are they considered Hawaiian?

Growing up here, the Hapa Kids were always
admired and perceived as attractive.When I
found out they were looked down upon in some
Asian countries I thought, "WTHuh?"

Beauty certainly is in the eye of the
beholder. It's a planet gone bonkers.

Is there really such thing as full blooded in any nationality? I myself really don't think so. We all fall in love with different people. I used to jokingly make fun of the Irish ( they have St. Patrick's Day, they have the saying " Those who are Irish and wish they were", etc ). I always found it very egotistical. Well guess what? I fell in love almost 7 years ago, WITH A GUY WHO IS MAJORITY IRISH! He also has other ethnic backgrounds . We should always judge by who a person is, not their ethic background. Take care.

Sure there is a lot of full blooded in a lot of nationality in Hawaii. Full-blooded Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, Korean Portuguese. But only in Hawaii, you will hardly find a "Full-blooded Hawaiian anymore." If they are Hawaiian, they are half breeds.

If you trace ancestry though in any nationality, there will always be a trace of another nationality, one way or the other. We are all mutts, lol ( mixed). Do you agree? Take care sweet bill.

In the past the Hawaii Japanese pretty much keep to themselves. Mixed marriages were frowned upon. Even to the "lower" Okinawans. Some of that attitude still exists in HI today. Japan Japanese still try to keep the race pure.

I dont´think so. A race never dissappers completely. IF The pure Hawaians are decreasing it´s because they married with ohter ethnic-groups.But mixing is nos dissapearing. At present there are about 8.000 pure Hawaians, but part-Hawaians there are many more -maybe 20% of the State population.-
And they are still alive, and recovering their cultural heritage, and their language too.

That's unless you've reached celebrity status. For example Tiger Woods is half Black half Thai and now a hero and brother in open arms in Thailand. Hines Ward SuperBowl XL MVP is half Black half Korean and had a hero's welcome in Korea after he was named SuperBowl XL MVP. Brian Clay is half Black half Japanese and since he won the silver medal in the 2004 Olympics he's now a hero in Japan and did a lot of TV commercials in Japan since winning the silver medal. If these guys wasn't a celebrity those in Asia wouldn't even give them the time of the day.
