Message to The Brooklyn Born Kanaka Maoli (AKA BKNYKANAKA)

I got wind that Hilo blogger (RJ Mendoza) who goes by the Twitter handle BKNYKANAKA made the following comment on his blog regarding the post I made yesterday regarding the AKAKA Bill:

I find it pretty hilarious that two days ago someone is jumping up and down and lighting the fire that his child is in the running for Kamehameha Schools and then posts not one, not two, but three anti-Kanaka Maoli propoganda videos on his blog. But then again, like so many others, people are only Hawaiian when it is convenient.

My response to him:

If I am the person you are talking about… you might want to re-evaluate how you think I may feel about things. I find it interesting that you might be evaluating my thoughts on the issue without really asking me.

Apparently, you didn’t read the words in front of those videos I posted:
“Please remember, that often times I’m only posting clips that I find, and that I don’t often express my feelings behind some of the posts that I do write.  I’m just trying to share information and allow a place for people to discuss the issues:”

And in reply to your statement:
“people are only Hawaiian when it is convienent.”

Well… sorry dude… I will never be Hawaiian.  I’m only married to someone with a bit of Hawaiian in them.

I will never say or portray that I am Hawaiian.

I understand that the Akaka Bill touches many people personally and it doesn’t bother me that someone would assume something about me just because they read my blog.

I just thought I would clarify that many of my blog postings do not speak directly to my own personal beliefs on issues, and I’m only trying to bring issues to the front for many of us to read about.

Another thing that Mr. Brooklyn-Born Kanaka Maoli may want to understand before throwing people under the bus…

Is that not all Hawaiians Support the Akaka Bill.

I’ve never state whether I support it or not… and quite frankly, don’t know enough about the issues to stand on either side of the issue.

But just a reminder to BKNYKANAKA

I’m only married into a Hawaiian Family…  My son is the one with the Hawaiian Blood.  The primary reason why I want him to go to Kamehameha has nothing to do with his ethnicity… it has to do with the quality of education that Kamehameha Schools can provide compared to that of the public schools.

You can view his blog  “You can never come home again” for yourself.


I don’t choose to comment on his recent statements made today “Civil Unions Crap” … such as:

  • And I’m a (bad) Buddhist, mind you.
  • I love how the Mormons are the biggest opponents to this. Aren’t they the ones who encouraged polygamy
  • Why aren’t people asking the real important questions- who cares about The Flying Spaghetti Monster’s, God’s religious laws? Don’t impose your religious laws on me.
  • I don’t support gay marriage- I don’t support marriage in general.
  • I feel like crying when I see groups like the Holy Innocents Church, Temple Emmau-El, Unions, the Democractic Pary of Hawaii, the University of Hawaii Professional Assembly, retired Luthern ministers all strongly support the civil unions bill.

I guess this is just one beauty about writing your own blog… Is you are welcome to feel the way you want to as well as post what you want to write.

I just wish others would be more careful in assuming how I might feel about an issue over just one blog that I posted.
