I cant believe how some ppl can actually be. if its not your culture get over it. if it is, good for you. stop bashing other cultures when ppl have a lot to say about all. this is ridiculous. u ppl need to grow up, get your asses off the computer, and do something with your own lives. And those who continue to bash chamorros, well, get a fucking life.

Let me say no woman deserves to be beat or mistreated by any man,woman go through great pain to give us life! But, Mrs Chamorro Sucks would you feel better if the guy your daughter was with was some Irish man form Holyoke,MA and beat the crap out of her? If Chamorro men were the only ones abusing their woman the government wouldn't need to spend billions of dollars on woman shelters! You seem to me to just have some racist attitude toward the Chamorro people, but if your daughter was beat up by some white man would you be on any forum writing about how you hate white people and that they need to go back to Europe? What you need to be doing is working to stop all violence against women everywhere! Teach the male members of your family to respect women. Pray that this man who hurt your daughter turn from his evil ways, because it seems to me like you he needs God in his life.....Racism is ungodly so don't be consumed with hate or you shall find your soul consumed with fire! Pray and we shall see each other at the resurrection!

Mrs Chamorro sucks I'm sorry for what has happened to your daughter, I hope the guy gets what's coming to him. However, coming from both Hawaii and Guam I'm not sure I completely understand your prejudice against the WHOLE Chamorro race. My father is Chamorro and my mother is Hawaiian. I have lived on both islands and I love both cultures. I'm proud to be both Chamorro and Hawaiian. I understand your anger and that you are not looking for pity, but are your assumptions really fair? I mean because I'm half Chamorro does that mean I have to leave Hawaii? My father who is a very proud Chamorro raised his children with values and morals. My mother who loves her island because of her people does not segregate my fathers family. The beliefs and the family values are similar. They both believe in ohana! We live in Hawaii and vacation in Guam, which is really beautiful I think it's like a little version of Honolulu with less traffic lol. I'm 16 and maybe I don't have the right to voice my opinion just yet, but I'm very proud to be Chamorro and my fathers family don't drink or abuse drugs. They don't beat their wives or sleep all day. This hurts me because if I'm only half Hawaiian does that make me a Hawaiian wanna be? Or because of my Chamorro race that makes me inconsequential? Or does it make me a bigot with ingnorant tendencies? Should I be judged because I am Chamorro? I know how it feels to be judged because of my skin color and I have chosen to rise above that and make ME a better person. My Chamorro father taught me that, my Hawaiian mother taught me how to be a strong woman. I'm blessed and proud of what I am, where I come from, and the two ethnic backgrounds that raised me. So I hope you see my point of view and realize that not all Chamorros are bad seeds.

Really, I'm chamorro and i don't suck :) and tell your daughter to choose a better partner who is kind and loving, not all chamorros are as you say. So saying chamorros suck you put every chamorro in the same category, so please don't say we suck, the only one who sucks is your daughters boyfriend. And by having your name chamorros suck is so derogatory that i have taken it personal.

Hey I'm a damn American and I'll let you know right now that I live on Guam, which is more peaceful than America, and I enjoy it here. Some people have issues yes, but for a fact I know and met more gruesome people down at the state side. As a psychologist, I'll let you know a bad action from a single person does not come from ones culture, but the way they chose to live or was treated. Maybe the man you met has met issues while in the military, as you mentioned, and became very aggressive, as do most military citizens. So please fix your post about chamorro's because I'm more proud to say that I live with them, than to say I'm white.

Most of you people are ignorant and lazy yourselves and not to mention raciest I might add. You belittle a place you no nothing of. Just because some Chamorros are lazy does not mean they all are. Most if not all the Chamorros I know are the most hard working people on the planet. Chamorro culture is all about respect for women not beating them. Alcohol has done a bunch to harm communities even back on the mainland. So please keep your ignorant raciest comments about Chamorros that are not even true to your self or say it to their face. The world would be much better with out you talking non-sense. Also I might add that she can marry who-ever she pleases and none of the "bullshit" you raciest's talk can do otherwise.

oh I see, another ignorant Chamorro, taking up space in our islands...
what are you doing here? I came to this forum to read it and realized
that I was NOT wrong in my assessment of loser CHAMORROS....you are the only ones that think you are all so great...and pls...you are the last person or persons that I would want to be "educated" by....I think you need to get an "education"....your ignorance is sickening..
oh and sweetie, like I said, I didnt come on here looking for pity, pity from the perpetrators....sheesh, I'm not a dumb b>tch like you...read this whole forum, I am not the only one saying bad things about Guam and Chamorros....there are many....but I guess it must be hard to admit what a bunch of absolute losers you are....whatever....go back to your little island, and pollute your own corner of your world....
ALL LOSERS....ALL YOU CHAMORRO "BIRDS OF LOSER FEATHERS" BELONG TOGETHER on your tiny CORRUPT ISLAND....ALOHA!
You have no right to judge Chamorro people by one rotten egg. You're seriously retarded and should be sent to a whipping-house, egged, and then tied up and thrown into the ocean among a pit full of sharks to be eaten alive. Chamorro people are the most sweetest I've ever met, I'm from Missouri and I'm currently visiting my grandparents in Guam.
And look at you... your oh so scary caps rage. Bitch, back off.

YOU HAVE JUST PROVEN MY POINT.......Your attitude is ....you don't agree with what I have to say...so in essence you would like for me to "shutup", because you say so...and if not, you want to meet with me and beat me up...WHATEVER... I do not understand your language, and have no desire to, so do not speak to me in it...AND I will never be intimidated by you.
I am not spewing BS on this forum....I am telling it like it is...what I speak about, I have witnessed first hand....and btw...I am not a "bro"....I am a M-O-M.....who's daughter, unfortunately fell in love, or what she thought was "love" with a Chamorro, she was engaged to a "CHAMELEON"....who came to both my husband and I and told us how much he loved my daughter,(who btw is single, beautiful, had no children, is a college graduate, has an excellent job earns great money, is articulate, and smart, is a hard worker, and has a very wonderful heart....) and how he would treasure her and take care of her, and asked us if he could have her hand in marriage.....of course our daughter is an adult, so she did not need our "permission" to get married....but we did appreciate his gesture at the time, not realizing it was just an "act".....well, he surely fooled us for awhile.... We took him into our family circle and treated him as family, welcomed his family and friends as our own....and yet while we were doing so, I could never shake an uneasy feeling about something not being quite right.....Well, this "devil" always went on and on about how wonderful and great Chamorros were....and we believed him...until we met him, we did not even know what or who a Chamorro was...we thought all people from Guam were Guamanian, now we know the difference...
One of our very dear friends who is from here but lived on Guam, while her Dad was stationed there, found out my daughter was engaged to a Chamorro, her exact words to me were...."Please be careful of Chamorros, they are arrogant, they are an abusive, lazy & substance abusing people, please tell your daughter to be very careful"....We did not heed her advice...STUPID US....Finally as time went on....the real deal started to show it's ugly head...what this Chamorro SAID DID NOT MATCH WHAT HE DID.... His awful Actions did not match his BS words.....
Wonderful People, DO NOT BEAT UP 7 MONTHS PREGNANT WOMEN FOR ANY REASON....ESPECIALLY BECAUSE HE IS SO DAMN INSECURE ABOUT HIS OWNSELF....OR CALL HER COLLEAGES AT WORK ACCUSING THEM OF FOOLING AROUND W/HER, OR ARE DISRESPECTFUL TO HER AND HER FAMILY FOR NO DAMN REASON...ONLY CRAZY, INSECURE, SICK IDIOTS DO THAT..BUT THE CLINCHER WAS HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS, ACTED LIKE, THAT'S WHAT MEN IN THEIR CHAMORRO SOCIETY ARE ALLOWED & EXPECTED TO DO AND THERE SHOULD BE NO LEGAL OR ANY CONSEQUENCES AT ALL, THAT A WIFE OR FIANCE OF A CHAMORRO SHOULD JUST "SUCK IT UP" AND TAKE IT...IT IS PAR FOR THE COURSE OF MARRIAGE....WELL,.UM....NO FREAKIN WAY......NOT HERE, AT LEAST NOT WHILE I AM ALIVE....I HAVE BEEN MARRIED TO THE SAME WONDERFUL MAN FOR 35 YEARS AND HE HAS NEVER LIFTED HIS HAND TO ME OR MY CHILDREN...EVER...WHY SHOULD THIS IGNORANT DIRT BAG THINK HE COULD GET AWAY WITH THAT BS AND HIS FAMILY THINK IT'S OK...PHHTTT....!?

Dear "Mom",

I'm a Hawaiian Girl married to a Chamorro Boy (42 years plus) I'm sorry your daughter had such a bad experience, but you are "stereo typing". Her fiance' could have been a Hawaiian, Samoan, Filipino, or Haole Boy. There are bad apples in every bushel, but not all the apples are bad! I'm shocked at the reaction of this guy's family and friends, it is definitely NOT the NORM for the Chamorro culture to react in that fashion! My husband has never lifted a hand or mentally abused me in the 43 years we have been together, and all the men in his immediate and extended family are quite respectful to their women, they drink on occasion but not excessively, and they definitely do NOT do drugs!

Peace out Mama from another Mama
