Racism in Hawaii?

Say it isn't so! If you do, tho, the Southern Poverty Law Center will disagree with you.

In a fairly long review, Larry Keller of the SPLC gives a once over lightly. Well known race blind activist and Hawaiian Studies professor at the University of Hawaii Haunani Kay Trask is quoted.
In a poem titled, "Racist White Woman," Trask wrote: "I could kick/Your face, puncture/Both eyes./You deserve this kind/Of violence./No more vicious/Tongues, obscene/Lies./Just a knife/Slitting your tight/Little heart."
Keller also mentions Kill Haole Day at the public schools.

Klanners might understand. They just wouldn't be tenured professors.
