I think we mostly agree. I don't know how to measure of societies are equally guilty, and I still think that is a stretch. I would think that you would find more prejudice in the Gaza Strip than you would in Oslo.
As far as your neck of the woods, I've never been to the Big Island, so I don't know what it's like there. I've been to the other inhabited islands, except for Niihau.
As a visitor, things were fine for me, but anyone's mileage may vary.
I would agree we mostly agree.
The basic element at work is affinity. Depending on the social forces at work (poverty, resource availability, etc.), affinity to "our own" can manifest itself as racism, class-ism, elitism, whatever.
What some (not all) Haoles perceive as racism is just that, certainly. But the core assertion I argue is not whether it is or isn't. It is simply to point out that Haoles (some, not all) import their perspectives into a situation where they really don't understand, and make the judgement that "It's them, not me."
It's all of us equally who are subject to judging others unfairly, and when we fool ourselves into believing it is not true of "us" while placing blame collectively on "them," we become the very bigots we purport to revile.

It's as okay as bigotry or trolling under different names thinking it's fooling anyone.

Sadly, your online persona perpetuates the stereotype of gays being lewd and lascivious in the extreme.
Your LGBT brothers and sisters are harmed by such "humor."
Please stop the bigotry.

Pardon me if I ruined your good time, but the prejudice toward LGBT members of our society is fueled by just the sort of things you post in the interest of irritating those you happen to disagree with.
It seems a small thing to request, compared to the perpetuation of inaccurate and hate-filled stereotypes, wouldn't you agree?

You can only ruin your own good time. Your structured dialogue is like an old 78 record in a cd age. Do your begging and bidding elsewhere. If you want a face to face i work Farrington Hwy (near the Waianae Boat Ramp) most nights and when in town you can find me near School st. and ______.

My brothers that work the Jack 'n Box in Waianae said District 1 is wrong in his opinion. You are welcome to stop by and talk to my mahus. Located across from the police station.

Well, if you state there is such consensus on the internets, then it must be true, and therefore a self-portrayal of mahus such as yourself is neither bigoted nor racist.
I stand corrected.
