The article appreciates and celebrates the perpetuation of hula as a core element of Hawaiian culture, and takes note of an upcoming hula conference in Waikiki. So far so good. But then along comes Terii_Kelii trying to start a fight by saying, in effect, OK haoles, where's YOUR culture? Americans and Caucasians often get attacked in this way in Hawaii, by ignorant hostile people who say we have no culture. That's silly.

Caucasian cultures have been developing for thousands of years in Europe, where there are numerous subcultures with unique and distinctive literature, music, art, and philosophy such as German, French, Italian, English, Irish, Scottish, Spanish, Greek, etc. Those subcultures replicated and diversified throughout the Americas during the past five centuries.

The American culture is now so vibrant and powerful that the people of other nations and cultures embraced it so strongly they now are afraid their own cultures are being overwhelmed. English has become the primary language of commerce and music throughout the world, to such an extent that France has passed laws prohibiting the use of "Franglish" in radio, TV, and newspapers. Canada has laws to defend itself against being overwhelmed by American culture, requiring that a specified percentage of the TV programs broadcast by Canadian stations must be written and produced in Canada.

It's regrettable that Terii_Kelii feels a need to seize a celebration of Hawaiian culture as a vehicle to lash out against haoles and Americans by saying we do not have a culture.

Terii under Kelii, David Rogers you are just a regular Water Murray Gibson, a white guy that tried to make a name for himself by stirring up hatred of white people in the islands. Poor you. P.S. The end of his story wasn't good.

It appears living in Hawaii, and belonging to the greatest country in the world the United States of America is just more stress than holokanaka, "The Great Bigot" can bear. You're not going to hurt yourself are you holokanaka?

Well except for the first part about "h**le culture" it sounds like you are describing Kamehameha I. Let's see. Imperialism, colonization of other's islands. Yep. Arrogance. Yep. Slaughter of his own people and stealing their lands in these islands. Yep. Lie and claim ownership of these islands, etc. Yep. Sounds just like what Kamehameha I.

did Kamehameha slaughter woman and kids like the ha*le did joker or did he slay warriors on the battle field?

As a matter of fact he did. You call guns and canon against clubs and spears a "battle field"? I call it slaughter field!

it seems joker you don't unstand the difference between "slaughter woman and kids" and "warriors fighting of the battle field". fighting on the battle field is when two warring forces fight to the death or until one or the other surrenders. slaughtering woman and kids is arrogant people chase fleeing and screaming woman and children and slaughter/murder them. if you still don't understand the difference just try googling.

colonization-spreading of ones species or "culture" into another. where is Kamehameha spreading (changing) ones culture into another? arrogance-feeling or assumption of ones superiority of another. where is Kamehameha assuming he is better than another as the ha*le did and does about people of color? you might want to read Honor Killing by David Stannard. did Kamehameha steal lands or did he divide the lands as were the customs of the day?

The lands were already divided, then he ruthlessly stole them for himself by wholesale slaughter and terrorism.

Actually, I would like to tell you about the battle for Oahu. But, it would take more time and space than I have here. When the thousand double hulled canoes came in sight the cry went out. The warriors of Oahu ran towards the shore. Their women and children followed them with food and supplies. You fill in the blanks.

The Star-Advertiser arbitrarily, illegally, and unconstitutionally prevents the use of a perfectly acceptable Hawaiian language word, which is especially egregious since the people who block the use of the word do not even speak the language to know which words are pejorative or not. Their reasoning is that the word is used in some contexts, BUT in the same context using their faulty logic words like Japanese, Chinese, and Samoan could be banned since people say effing Japanese, effing Chinese, or effing Samoan. Nevertheless these English words are NOT banned because they are used in a pejorative way. This just proves how discriminatory they are. I also find it less than humorous that people on the one hand use their poor sense of humor to lie saying that the Hawaiian culture is so wonderful, as above for example. THEN, they attack Hawaiian culture with their lack of tact by singling out a family for harassment during their bereavement and nitpicking why a Hawaiian cultural group would unamazingly be honoring Hawaiians for their achievement in the " I Ulu I Ke Kumu" column. MOREOVER, the same people have previously complained about the very existence of the Hawaiian language column AND the existence of the Hawaiian language itself, calling it useless and a "secret code." This hypocritical antagonism with such ridiculous and immature jokes towards the Hawaiian language community just shows how racist and fake they (read KennyKKonklin and his other personality DiaperDave) can be.
