Synopsis: Only two candidates are left for the University of Hawai'i’s president position. Why only two? And why isn’t any indigenous person a candidate?

Welina mai kākou, e nā makamaka heluhelu. 'Akahi nō a kūkala 'ia nā moho e alualu ana i ke kūlana pelekikena o ke Kulanui o Hawai'i. A 'o ka mea 'āpiki, he 'elua wale nō moho. He 'elua wale nō moho e koho ai no ke kūlana ki'eki'e loa o ke Kulanui o Hawai'i? No ke kūlana pelekikena o 'Amelika Hui Pū 'Ia, he koho wae moho ke mālama 'ia ma mua o ka lā koho pāloka. A ma kekahi mau moku'āina, 'a'ole wale nō he 'elua moho. He mau moho nō, he 'ekolu a 'oi paha. 'O ka 'oia'i'o, 'o ka hapa nui loa nō o nā pāloka, he lilo nō i ka moho Kemokalaka a me ka moho Lepupalika, akā, he mau moho nō ko kekahi mau moku'āina, a ua wae mua 'ia ka moho Kemokalaka a me ka moho Lepupalika. Ua hala na'e ka Pu'ulena. A no laila, he 'elua wale nō moho i koe no ke kūlana pelekikena.

Ke nānā aku i ia mau moho 'elua, e nīnau 'ia mai auane'i paha, “Na wai lā i koho?”

'O kekahi moho, 'o ia nō 'o David Lassner. 'O ia ka pelekikena kūikawā. Nāna nō i lawelawe aku i ka hana e pono ai ke Kulanui i ka ha'alele 'ana mai o M.R.C. Greenwood i ke kūlana pelekikena. A no laila, kohu mea lā, he hiki nō iā ia ke ho'okō i ka hana, 'oiai, aia nō 'o ia ke ho'okele akula i ke kulanui i kēia manawa.

'O ka lua o ka moho, 'o ia 'o Lukanela Kenelala Francis Wiercinski, i ho'omaha loa mai ia 'oihana mai. He luna 'o ia no ka Pū'alikoa ma mua. Ma ka Pū'alikoa kāna hana, 'a'ole 'o ia i lele loa aku i loko o ka 'oihana ho'ona'auao. He mea maopopo, he nui ka ho'ona'auao 'ana ma nā 'ano 'oihana a pau, akā, inā pēlā, no ke aha i koe 'ole ai ka inoa o kekahi mau Kānaka Maoli i mau moho no kēia kūlana pelekikena?

Pehea, he na'aupō wale nō ke Kanaka Maoli o Hawai'i? A pēlā pū paha ke Kanaka Maoli o 'Amelika a me kekahi 'āina 'ē aku paha? E hiki 'ole ai ke ho'okō aku i ka ho'okele pono 'ana aku i ke kulanui a holomua ma kēia mua aku?

A 'o kahi mea e kau ai ka weli, 'a'ole nō ho'okō ka Pū'alikoa i kona kuleana. 'O Kaho'olawe, 'a'ole nō i lawe 'ia nā pōkā a me nā mea pahū a pau i kahi 'ē. A 'a'ole paha lākou e ho'okō ana. Pūhili ka no'ono'o i ke koho 'ia 'ana o kahi luna pū'alikoa i moho no ke kūlana pelekikena o ke Kulanui o Hawai'i.

Solis continues his racial supremacy mind set that Polynesians should always have the last say on everything, and run everything. News flash Solis: Decisions like this were made for politically correct reasons before and turned out to be very bad ones. Like the last President that everyone had a love fest over when they hired a woman, that was also gay. "What a great decision" they all said. "We are showing the world how inclusive Hawaii can be", said others. This time they are trying to make an intelligent decision based on a little thing called MERIT!

3rd try. Robot censor keeps rejecting this. Must be some obscure Hawaiian double-meaning cussword (LOL).

Ua ha'i Solis: "[N]o ke aha i koe 'ole ai ka inoa o kekahi mau Kānaka Maoli i mau moho no kēia kūlana pelekikena?" E Solis, o wai ka inoa o kekahi kanaka maoli i ha'awi aku kana palapala i ke komike moho pelekikena? 'A'ole namunamu.

Solis always believes that Polynesians should have the last say in everything. The University has made decisions based on political correctness before. They had a absolute love fest when they hired the last President. "Aren't we progressive for hiring a woman" some said. "Yes and a gay-woman too!" said others. This time they will be basing their decision on merit and not political correctness or ethnicity.

There they go again with their personal attacks against the authors of the columns, AND in the usual poorly done Hawaiian and equally poor English. KennyKKonklin/Diaperdave says "How dare you be independent thinkers and politically inclined! Just sit down and be good little natives! Keep your mouths shut and let the white is right people make your decisions for you. We know what is right better than you ever will !" smh.

There goes Teri again with personal attacks against the authors of comments. Teri even put words into their mouths, using quote marks around lengthy alleged comments they never made, so as to create the false impression they said those things. Typical behavior by Teri, inventing falsehoods, and making personal attacks against anyone who dares to disagree with Solis.

Again, please refer to the screenshot of your comment from Nov 12, 2011 under the Kauakukalahale column of the same date in which you do that very thing, as noted here : KennyKKonklín, the guy from Massachusetts whose sense of logic lacks both sense AND logic and who has a very poor memory, said: " Anybody who wasn't born and raised down heah (sic) can't possibly understand our ways. We don't need no (sic) stinkin' northerners comin' down heah (sic) tellin' us how to run our schools." So you just proved yourself a hypocríte... AGAIN. Please, quit while I am ahead. This is too easy. If you wish to view the aforementioned screenshot, it is posted on the Star-Advertiser's Facebook page under the section where the public comments on their page reside.
