White but still the minority

Mackenzie Wasielewski,
Kailua, HI

Living in Hawaii I have always been “discriminated” against because I don’t look the other people. I am always told that I can’t surf or dance hula because I’m a “stupid haole.” What makes me a stupid haole? Many people think that it is impossible to be racist to a white person,, which is not true. People think that because years and years ago white was the dominant race that you can’t discriminate against them. Think before you say something about any race.
