The bigger question is why Portuguese get mad when people think they Haole, yet Portuguese girls like to marry Haoles.Just because the Philippines is in the Pacific Ocean, it doesn't mean filipinos are pacific islanders.
Ay, Minerva! So no make sense!
Actually, "The Club" in Hawaii is, by rank, Japanese, Okinawan, Hawaiian, Chinese, non-Hawaiian "Chop Suey," Portuguese, Filipino, and Korean (But if any are married to Japanese, then treated like Japanese, i.e. Billy Kenoi, Frank Fasi, and Ed Case, unless you have a Samoan first name--Samoans are always Samoan no matter who they marry).
Tokens accepted into The Club, by rank, are Jimmy Buffett, Jessie Colin Young, Chad Blair, Pierre Omidyar, Oprah, Don Horner, Neil Abercrombie, Kirk Caldwell, Mufi Hannemann, Rozanne Barr, and Sam Slom.
Tokens from anywhere may be allowed into The Club along the following parameters:
Do you have lots of money to bribe public officials?
Do you have lots of money that you are willing to give to charities?
Do you have sway over lots of foundation money that you are willing to push into Hawaii charities?
Are you a cool person who has charm, intellect, and embraces Hawaii as is without an expectation that you know better, and will never say, "How we did it on the mainland was..."
Tokens who buy an island thinking they are in, are never in. Tokens who fly in on private jets are likewise never in, except for Oprah coz she brown.
