Kill a Haole Day
« on: June 01, 2007, 07:29:47 am »
I would have enjoyed going to High School In Hawaii.
I would have started a new tradition "beat up people who celebrate "Kill a Haole Day"".


Kill Haole Day is an annual ritual in Hawaiian public schools in which any haoles, or Caucasians, that dare to come to school are beat up by non-haole locals.

Traditionally, this day is observed on the last day of classes. Consequently, many haoles call in sick lest they get their alaalas (testicles) pulverized during Physical Education by Waianae's angriest Samoans or get chased home after school by raging packs of mokes and blalas (unsavory types). Public school administrators claim that the traditional beat downs given out on the last day of classes have subsided in recent years, but that could be window dressing as teachers have been known to literally walk away from racial violence.

The Rainbow Nation

There is huge, and mostly unspoken, discrimination on the Islands. you had better have a large amount of Hawaiian blood if you want to be a UPS driver and you had better have a Japanese name if you run for public office.

Only last month a group of Kanaka Maiels (at least 50% Hawaiian blood) stoned and shouted Haoles at cars driven by whites in Hanalai on this island.

For many years, public schools had a day called Kill Haole Day where those with light skin were regularly beaten, and while that practice has officially ended, the strain (and the
actuality) is still there. People with relatively light skin are at the bottom of the local social scale on the Islands.

I'm surprised the parents of these kids haven't sued the Board Of Ed for allowing the practice.  

I'm more surprised that none of these kids has been escorted to school by a father/uncle/older brother with a gun.

Non-white on white crime is okay anywhere, anytime. We whitey's deserve punishment.

Isn't ethnic diversity great?  The sharing of traditions...  >D  

Be Prepared.

Apparently the natives have read about how amurica "acquired" the islands

Just be glad the natives of this country don't do the same thing. ;)

You need a Permit

Evidently you need a permit to carry a gun and permits are entirely at the discretion of the county police chiefs which have issued exactly zero carry permits in the past 10 years.

So Hawaii has rescinded the Second Amendment?
