Hawaiians: 50th Anniversary of “Statehood” of Hawai’i – Posted by Lana Ululani Robbins

Hawaiians: 50th Anniversary of “Statehood” of Hawai’i

As usual some of the local press collude with the state and federal government to make it seem as though Hawaiians are less than human. In today’s Honolulu Advertiser the editors printed a story called,

“Hawaii’s move into statehood traumatic for many Hawaiians .”

It can be seen here.

 

They try to make it seem as though we are acting like victims. We did not name that column that. Instead the editors did.

However Hawaiians do not view themselves as victims. Instead they view themselves as survivors. Survivors who will continue to fight for their rights. Hawaiians will never stop doing so.

Unfortunately as usual the local press in Hawai’i collude with the state and federal government to try to influence the general public to view us as less than human.

It is not surprising.
