Na Kekeha Solis

POSTED:



Synopsis: State Rep. Faye Hanohano made some remarks that she has since apologized for. But were they racist or ethnic slurs?

Welina e nā makamaka heluhelu o Kauakūkalahale. Ua ku'i aku ka lono a laha loa paha ma nā mokupuni a pau o Hawai'i nei no kahi mau 'ōlelo kūamuamu a kekahi lunamaka'āinana i ho'opuka ai i ka Pō'akahi nei. 'O Faye Hanohano ka inoa o ua lunamaka'āinana nei. A ke 'ōlelo 'ia nei nō ho'i ma ka nūpepa a me ka waha o kekahi mau kānaka, “He ho'okae 'ili ia hana a ka Lunamaka'āinana Hanohano.”

Eia na'e ka'u nīnau e hāpai nei, he aha ia mau 'ōlelo ho'okae 'ili?

Penei kāna 'ōlelo e like me ka mea i pa'i 'ia i loko o ka nūpepa, “any work done by haoles, Japs, Pālangis, Pākēs ...” He aha nā hua 'ōlelo kūamuamu, a ho'okae 'ili paha? 'O nā hua 'ōlelo lāhui paha kā 'oukou e kuhi nei, e nā makamaka heluhelu. Pēlā nō paha, akā, 'ekolu o ia mau hua 'ōlelo lāhui, he hua 'ōlelo Hawai'i a he hua 'ōlelo Kāmoa paha. A 'o haole a me Pākē, 'a'ole ia he mau 'ōlelo kūamuamu ma ka 'ōlelo Hawai'i. A ke kuhi nei ko 'oukou mea kākau, 'o Pālangi, 'a'ole nō ho'i ia he 'ōlelo amuamu. He ho'okahi wale nō hua 'ōlelo koe, 'o ia 'o “Japs,” a 'a'ole nō ia he hua 'ōlelo kūpono, he mea maopopo wale ia iā kākou. Akā, pehea, 'o ke Kepanī wale nō kā Hanohano i kūamuamu ai? Ke kuhi nei ko 'oukou mea kākau, 'a'ole 'o Hanohano i ho'opuka aku i ia hua 'ōlelo me ka loko 'ino a me ka mana'o hō'ino i ia lāhui, e helu papa wale ana nō 'o ia i nā lāhui.

'A'ole paha 'o Hanohano i mahalo i ia mau hana no'eau e kau ana ma ka paia, akā, 'a'ole ia he hana ho'okae 'ili.

A 'o kekahi pilikia, ua huki 'ia mai kāna mau hua 'ōlelo mai loko mai o kahi mo'olelo nui, 'o ia ho'i, ka hana 'ino 'ia 'ana o ka Hawai'i ma kona one hānau.

A i kēia wā e mālama 'ia nei kahi papahana e hō'ike ana i nā hana no'eau a nā kānaka like 'ole, 'a'ohe wahi ki'i a ke Kanaka Maoli i pena ai, i kaha ai, a i pa'i ai paha. Pehea lā i ho'opoina 'ia ai ke keiki o ka 'āina. Eia ko 'oukou mea kākau ke ha'i aku nei iā 'oukou, ua nui nā Kānaka Maoli hana no'eau. Āhea lā e pono ai?

'A'ole i ho'opuka ka Lunamaka'āinana Faye Hanohano i ka 'ōlelo kūamuamu lāhui a i ka 'ōlelo ho'okae 'ili paha. 'A'ole paha 'o ia i nāukiuki i ia mau lāhui.

'O ka hua 'ōlelo no ke Kepanī, 'a'ole i kūpono, akā, 'a'ole 'o ia i ho'opuka me ka mana'o 'ino o loko iā lākou. A 'o kekahi mea nui, ua mihi ihola ka Lunamaka'āinana Faye Hanohano i mua o ka lehulehu a no laila, e holo mua kākou. A e ho'omau i kāu hana maika'i e ka Lunamaka'āinana Hanohano.

Solis is simply splitting hairs. HanoHano exposed her real self. She is a product of a state that coddles and allows Polynesian-Hawaiian only schools ,against Supreme Court rulings disallowing "separate but equal education" and helps fund them with our tax dollars. She is a product of over 800 raced based Polynesian only programs.(Which spawns an attitude that "if we(Polynesians) didn't have it coming, they wouldn't be giving it to us".) She has been taught that her Polynesian culture is the "host" culture, which is cultural elitism and racist by definition. She believes that the only "real" Hawaiian must be of Polynesian descent, which would be like saying the only real American must be a white person. Hanohano and her ilk's belief systems are so racially deep that she even believes that Polynesian art is the only art worthy of hanging on a wall. But, besides the obvious, her words during her tirade showed a profound racial hatred of all "others" that cannot be apologized for. She swore to represent all peoples, now that she has shown that she is not there to do that, she must resign.

Perhaps Solis is right, racism is part of the Polynesian culture, and you have just restated it "those words are used daily by most folks". Maybe the ones you hang out with. The people I associate with do no such thing, and would immediately put anyone in check that did. You defend it. That would make you a what?

Short memory as always diverdave. You said you experienced "real" racism so Hawaiians couldn't possibly have experienced racism. You think we're entitlers, yet you come from a tribe that gets free health care, free housing and higher education. You spew hate at Kanaka Maoli as if you were once jilted by a lovely Hawaiian wahine and can't stand to see Kanaka Maoli do well. I expected to see you post that we are not the indigenous race of Hawai'i because that's who you are. A racist and now apparently a racist with Alzheimer’s.

Drug addicts also believe that everyone does meth. They say "everyones doing it". That's because the only losers they hang out with do meth. The racists you apparently hang out with use racist speak, so you believe that everyone does it. Is that what they teach in your Hawaiian Charter Schools? That it is OK to talk this way because everyone is doing it. OMG!

By the way, if you were a white citizen of the old kingdom and was asked in another country what your citizenship was you would answer Hawaiian. Only after Hawaii became part of greatest nation on Earth did Polynesians commandeer the sole use of that word to discribe themselves. Never the less, there are many types of Hawaiians.

Actually holokanaka, This response should have been posted after 808's response to my opening memo. The robot put it here. The point is that the sovereignty kook fringe does not like to speak to the fact that there were twice as many "others" in Hawaii than Polynesians at the time of the revolution of 1893. They were Hawaiians, just like citizens of America call themselves American. If something was stolen then their country was also stolen as they had the same rights as Polynesian citizens did. But, the sovereignty fringe only believes that Polynesian-Hawaiians should be allowed in the club. With you it's all about race. Isn't it? That would make you a what?

there were more others then people of Hawaiian blood but in fact people of Hawaiian blood were the great majority of the "subjects/citizens". not everyone born in the Kingdom were subjects. your ha*le heroes made sure that others were not made subjects-read 1887 (bayonet) constitution provisions for voting article 59 and 62. therefore their nationality were not Hawaiians. gee can you imagine that arrogant/racist ha*le. who would have thought. you might want to read Honor Killing by David Stannard which clearly points that out. yes the Kingdom was made up with other than people with Hawaiian blood, which is clearly pointed by the more successful Sovereignty Organizations. I guess you haven't read some of their works. you might want to try. you may learn something.

'A'ole hanohano 'o Hanohano. 'O ka 'olelo o Faye Hanohano: he mea ma'a mau ia, e like me ka 'olelo o Kekeha Solis. 'A'ole pilikia. Of course what she said is neither racist nor ethnic slurs -- it's merely her normal way of speaking. No problem. Why shouldn't she have the right to demand that the artwork brought for display in her office should be created by ethnic Hawaiians? She was merely using ethnic labels that are in common usage among "her people." No problem. So says Kekeha Solis, who has previously used this weekly column to speak directly to "his people" -- "blood of my blood, bone of my bone" -- and has defended that language as not being racist. Well, kayden. We know where we stand. Permission to talk stink about people based on ethnicity, and their cultural products. Permission to apologize to "my ancestors and my people" instead of apologizing to the ethnic groups she demeaned in her tirade. There are bills now in the legislature, some sponsored by OHA, some coming out of the committee where Hanohano is chair and bearing her signature as sponsor, that would require all state government employees to undergo mandatory sensitivity training about the "host culture" and the "rights of Native Hawaiians" -- the idea is to brainwash people with the propaganda of racial supremacy endorsed by Hanohano and her ilk. But of course no sensitivity training to require Hanohano and other openly racist Hawaiians to respect the human rights and political equality of other ethnicities.

Correct Ken, Solis should be ashamed to be defending this type of behavior. Apparently he believes that somehow when a Polynesian-Hawaiian spews racism towards all "others" that it is just some kind of cultural thing. Wow! So, he is basically saying that the Polynesian-Hawaiian language and culture is inherently racist and that should be OK? Is this what Solis teaches at the University? You betcha!

I would would really like to read a Book Review by you on that book. it should be very interesting. and, by the way I remember most of those words being commonly used daily and no offence was ever taken by anyone in those ethnic groups, and a question, what is wrong with Hanohano requesting paintings by Hawaiians? it is her office. she may have used some words that may be offensive to some but again at one time it was normal everyday language in these Islands among locals.

You mean the so called "Hawaiian" charter schools. This schools are allowed under the premise that somehow Polynesians learn differently than all other races in the world (a racist idea to start with) and they should have their own schools subsidized by the tax payer. I said something to the effect that the goal of these schools is to indoctrinate Polynesian youths into the sovereignty agenda, very much like Hitler did with his Nazi youth camps. How does that make me a racist or a hater? Your real goal here is to make this discussion about me, or Ken Conklin, and not about Hanohano's racism. It is obvious that your little game is all about attack, with no substance to back it up.

Since you like to call me "konki" I'll go ahead and call you holokukae.

"The purpose of Kanu is to provide students of Hawaiian ancestry residing in the Hamakua and Kohala area of Hawai'i Island with an equal opportunity to quality education that addresses their distinctive cultural learning styles and allows them to successfully walk in two worlds. ... Providing culturally driven education, that is specifically designed to meet the unique wants and needs of native students, is Kanu's primary focus. While we accept students that do not have Hawaiian blood, these students and their families, like their native counterparts, must make a commitment to be actively involved in the perpetuation of native Hawaiian language, culture and traditions. In addition, they must consent to being taught according to native Hawaiian values and teaching strategies and behave in a culturally consistent manner. ... The vision of KANU is to become part of the first of many native Hawaiian community designed and controlled comprehensive learning centers or kauhale... Probably the most unique and critical aspect of Kanu's educational foundations is the fact that Kanu wants to actively prepare native students to participate in - and perhaps even lead - Hawai'i's indigenous sovereignty movement."

YOU are a racist and thus you need to answer that question about yourself before you point fingers at others. You also commented on my original post and therefore you clearly thought the topic was acceptable at the time. SOOOO , don't change the subject your own dàmnéd self, old man. STFÜ.

Most of the terms she used were not racist in themselves, I"m haole married to one pake, is how we talk. But she used these terms in a racist way. That is clearly the truth. Specially offensive is the term japs. If anyone thinks using jap is not offensive, then please go to a karate dojo and ask, "Are there any japs here? Do you have japs teaching?" Or perhaps one could ask an Asian, "Hey, are you a chink or a jap?" Or drop by McKinley High School's gym and ask the football players, "How many japs are on the team?"

Thanks Pat, other than Mr. Conklin you have been the only voice of reason to these folks that are clearly in denial, and support racist ranting speak from an elected public servant, as long as it is a Polynesian directing it towards all other races. Come back again. But beware, they will soon be calling you a racist too.

YOU need to take off your blinders. It is quite clear that we all have our opinions. The main fact though is that we choose not to share our thoughts about racism with a racist like you. Shall I bust out the whiteboard and markers for a picture or was that simple enough for even you to understand?

people, over the last few years the true history of these Islands has been coming to light and are being spread by some very intelligent individuals supported by their research of the archives in Hawaii and washington d.c.old Hawaiian news papers, sourse documents, etc. people are more and more questioning the history/propaganda that has been taught is these Islands for over 100 years. I agree Hanohano a Hawaiian could have been a little more civil in her rant, but I can understand after learning the true history of these Islands her being mad and maybe losing control. I would suggest reading some books-Nation Within by Tom Coffman, Aloha Betrayed by Noe Noe Silva, and google Hawaiian Kingdom.org. these materials could a real eyeopener.
