  •  I lived there from 1989-2006 (4+ / 0-)

    On the money about the anti-Black sentiment.  It's Xtian religious fundamentalism, along with a massive influx of rich malahini Haoles and Japanese buying up homes the locals can  no longer afford.  The leasehold system of  land ownership has also thrown many people out of their life-time homes. Classic modern re-colonization.

     The easy, get along attitude is turning to resentment, just like on the Mainland, because it is almost impossible to live without at least 2 jobs. Stress is stress and all the palm trees don't make it better. .

    The massive military presence doesn't help, either.  
    Love the place, but it's like Kansas with scenery.....

    Jesus died to save you from Yahweh.
