White in Hawaii; Black in Alabama

Patrick Lawrence,

Growing up white in Hawaii during the seventy’s the color of my skin gave 85% of the population an excuse to hate and attack me daily.

      Hey Black Ron,… I get the feeling you believe racism, discrimination and hate are all about you and your race.   I understand completely what Patrick ‘the cracker’ is saying.   A Cracker wondering off the tourist path WILL get a beating in Hawaii for being white,.. or ivory,… or tan.  It’s not only a black thang.   It’s also about the Burmese hill tribe girl whose chained to a basement wall in Thailand by her Thai-Chinese owner.

    • Yeah, doesn’t that guy realize that only white people can be racist?

  • sin

    not only white people get picked on in Hawaii. Hawai’i is just a place white people come and are caught off guard on how anyone can hate their precious race. Especially “paradise” lol Hawai’i is the only place I feel comfortable Walking the streets at night.

    And thanks for the heads up. I know to avoid Alabama now lol
