This site tracks the Hawaiian sovereignty issue.
Native Hawaiians can tell a weak horse when they see one:
A Hawaiian Studies professor at the University of Hawaii, Haunani-Kay Trask, is one of the most caustic critics of whites in the islands. In her 1999 book, From A Native Daughter, Trask wrote: "Just as … all exploited peoples are justified in feeling hostile and resentful toward those who exploit them, so we Hawaiians are justified in such feelings toward the haole. This is the legacy of racism, of colonialism."Trask is getting paid by the government to spout this poison?
In a poem titled, "Racist White Woman," Trask wrote: "I could kick/Your face, puncture/Both eyes./You deserve this kind/Of violence./No more vicious/Tongues, obscene/Lies./Just a knife/Slitting your tight/Little heart."
Turn the islands over to the Japanese or Chinese. Then Prof. Trask will really have something to complain about. Except, of course, she wouldn't dare. Native Hawaiians can also recognize a strong horse. Interesting that the bigotry seems directed toward whites rather than toward the Asian majority...
Btw, where is the healing voice of our Hawaii-born Obamessiah?
Iirc similar things are going on wrt Indian minorities on islands in the Indian Ocean.
 Note that the incident of violence is by youths against an elderly man--and the Hawaiian police hushed it up, saying he couldn't get justice in a Hawaiian court.
 In fact, it wouldn't surprise me to see Chinese support for the independence movement. In due course if not right now. For their own purposes, of course.
