Oh the hilarity, hypocrites and parasites ...

It's apparent that while some of us are indeed angry at the world's injustices, magnified by the current administration, others simply bounce between passive aggression and mad insults, to sudden attempts at dialog, then, back again to pathetic aggression, racism, anti-specific religions and ethnicity as if they are responsible for, again, the world's injustices, some of them anyway, and, a bizarre idea that Googling anything for five minutes produces results that someone who has decades of experience of will find of equal value. Oh the hilarity.

Specific to the "word" HAOLE in Hawaiian, it can sure easily be used to draw out white privilege in a hurry, which is what I have always used it for, and, for the record, I rarely to never use it though in recent hours there has been a flurry. Anyway, despite the way things have leaned, by specific definition it does NOT mean White, Caucasian, European, whatever ... as clearly stated it means you don't adhere, or even match up with, Polynesian standards of acceptable behavior. 

That is all.

Friending someone so you can hassle them- the move of a candy-ass punk and nothing else.

Your definition here conforms with what I was taught by a Polynesian woman 4 decades back during the college years.

Hi AKA- You mean I don't need a GIANT Venn Diagram used for linguistic instruction, not cultural relevance, to get the point across? Who knew ...

Our time in Hawaii was only a year; from what I learned there, what you say is wholly right.

Thanks Jon, one thing I've learned from you is you are an astute observer, seriously.

You're like a couple 'la elbow slammed Maker's Marks with Tom Hanks somedays Maui!

O!

I only wish yesterday would have been a postal holiday. My DeathXDune-Buggy 'twas 'officially' rejected.

Why the boinks sent it certified is way beyond my yeoman's grade.

Rock on

"a bizarre idea that Googling anything for five minutes produces results that someone who has decades of experience of will find of equal value"...

There are those who won't Google anything for dear of being confronted with facts that run contrary to their beliefs and pronouncements....

That may be so Ron, but in this case, and in so many others, but in this case particularly, throwing up a linguistics chart made by an academic in explanation of our language, which we barely saved from extinction not even fifty years ago, and, one which fascinatingly omits the actual word in contention, though it can't actually be contended, is, well, fascinating.

Now, don't tell me you are referring people to Conservapedia?   :)
