You should know Micronesian! Espically 'CHUUKESE'!!! You see? Nobody want you anymore! You're not welcome everywhere! Because your behavior! That's why you are not moving forward because when we speak the truth you guys (chuukese) oppose it and ignore it. What's wrong with you? Are you from other planet or something? Mannnnnnnnnnnnn!

Well at least you have some compassion. I as a person feel the same as you. Hawaii and the other "prefered states" should'nt have to take the full burden, the U.S. Military/fed court rulings created this so we "became a burden" to the Hawaiian people.
We want the Military/Fed to own up give us are due in court and take responsibility! Hawaii did'nt bomb/displace us, the U.S. Military did to study the effects of Radioactive fallout on live people, that feel the effects to this day.
I myself dont approve of lazy,lawless people that live off the Gov't. I hope voters can influence their Goveremnt Officals to settle this decades long class action suit against the Military/Feds and put the responsibilty back in the Micronesian Goverment to raise it's own people.
Please dont dehumanize all of us, because of the few Micronesian troublemakers being in the public parks, there are alot of us that you dont see that have colledge degrees, career jobs and pay taxes. I am believer in Christ and believe in God's word that we were all created in his image, so to hate ones brother or sister is to hate the image of God. Aloha & God Bless.
Hawaiians been fighting the U.S. for many years.The U.S. doesnt want to even aknowledge that they were wrong for annexing Hawai'i.Oh wait an appology letter was sent..BIG DEAL!Micronesians arent the only ones that were wronged by them. we may of not got a nuclear bomb but we were part of a war because of the u.s.

Sorry, but we plan on taking over every Island in the Hawaiian chain and there is nothing you can do about it. Your People are too week to take the land back from the U.S. so we came to do it for you. And in the future, if there are still any native hawaiians left then maybe we'll return it to them. If not we'll sell it to the Chinese or North Koreans....

I am a Hawaiian. My grandfather is the only mixed person in my family. half hawaiian, half haole. reading these posts has really disgusted me, because to us, Hawaiians (not city hawaiians) you are all vultures in our land.

these people might be using state services, but they are also working and paying taxes. they are addapting to a new place. Just like the Japanese and Portugese 100 years ago, Just like the Samonas 50 years ago and just like Filipinos 30 years ago.

Every 10-20 years people living in Hawaii have a minority that they hate and discriminate against. It is sad, because the people who are discriminating are the children of immigrants who were discriminated against in the past.

In 10-20 years time, Micronesians will be a part of Hawaii just like the Japanese, Portuguese and Filipinos. The difference is, they will look more Hawaiian and have more in common with Hawaiians that the rest of you.

I am also disgusted at the politicians who are spreading hate and discrimintion to people in Hawaii. By spreading false information and biggoted accusations for political gains and short term goals. This goes out especially to Djou. He is the reason so many Micronesians have been beaten and/or killed in Hawaii.

I work with Micronesians every day for the past 10 years now. They work hard to provide for their families, they pay taxes, and not all of them are on welfare.

I know doctors, lawyers, teachers, computer techs, businessmen and women, police officers, etc, who are micronesians, but you would never know because they do not look like your "typical" micro.

stop all of this bigotry and hate. if you want to hate on someone, then go to the Federal Government for not keeping their word to these people. Complain to your elected officals for taking the cowardly way and fighting a defenseless people and not fighting Big Government.

they are not Hawaiians, because Hawaiians would never say something like that. They are probably sons and daughters of immigrants who went through this type of discrimination. Now, they are the ones doing the discriminating.

i am proud to have know Mau Piailug and will be eternaly grateful for what he has done for the Hawaiian people. Aloha.

I'm a Micronesian and I'm not on welfare. I know hundreds, of Micronesians that are not on welfare, and your discriminating against all of us? I have been living in Hawaii for more than 20 years now, and you expect me and my children to just pack up and leave?

I lost 2 good friends and 1 cousin in Afghanistan. Micronesians have given their lives for this country. Micronesians in the military have the highest number of combat related deaths per capita, than any other state in the US.

My people have been bombed, tested on like animals and taken advantage of. Even so, we still give our lives for the USA. We still love this country.

I love America, but I deeply hate the politicians and racists that are spreading hate and lies against my people.

instead of trying to dicriminate against an entire race of people who have the legal right to be here in the first place, why don't the politicians in Hawaii go after the National Government for compensation? just because it's tough, is no excuse to take the easy way out. the easy way out is by the way very cowardly and in 20-30 years time, people will say it's down right racist and a very low point in Hawaii's history.

not only that, vinagirl (#5), but with the micronesians taking apartments outside of public housing, less apts. available for locals, and most locals may pay $200 more per month for rent than we otherwise would for the same apt. unit because of the increase demand. The census figures won't be due for another year, but I'm guessing there are 20,000 micronesians living on Oahu. That's why the rent in Hawaii is the highest in the nation? Plus they not officially even US citizens.
20,000 Micros are the reason why Hawaii is on the top 10 list of most expensive states to live in? Man you speaking out of your ass!And you got shit for brain.Ain't Hawaii a expensive place to live in because of all the tourists that come here,and Hawaii is considered the R&R spot for rich people!Maybe I"m wrong,cause people now days don't listen to the people with brains instead they listen to the people with shit for brains like you.

Uh, where do you think they got current data that radioactive contamination is dangerous for a very, very long time.

Dead victims showed real dangers of fallout and contaminated earth. Mutations and cancer are other developments.

They'll be able to collect the data from Hawaiians once the radiation cloud from Japan reaches the islands this year or next. Can't say I'm looking forward to it. But HEY, at least we ain't getting hit by asteroids!
