Everybody who is not Hawaiian should leave

When I hear locals say that Mainland transplants should “go back home” I have to laugh.

The only people who have a “right” to live here are the full-blooded Native Hawaiians whose ancestors arrived about 2,000 years ago.

Not the Chinese, or the Japanese, or the Portuguese, or the Filipino, or the Puerto Rican, or the Mexican, or the Micronesian or even us Mainland transplants.

Sure, some Mainland transplants are annoying, selfish and conceited bullies. But, of course, some of the others are too. Let’s just leave and give the Native Hawaiians back their islands. Let’s let the boorish loudmouths go first, then the rest of us can follow. Go back to your ancestors’ homeland. Japan needs more population!
