Great Britain eventually gave independence to India and other colonies. It makes me wonder if we'll end up doing the same for Hawaii, which used to be a foreign country. I used to live there. There were a lot of people who weren't happy at all with Hawaii's status as part of the United States. If you were a Caucasian person (as I am), many people would automatically resent you over how Hawaii became part of the US. If you read up on the history of it, you'll see that it was a pretty ugly affair. On the other hand, there are benefits to Hawaii for being part of the US. Anyone from there has the right to freely move about the country without any immigration red tape since they're Americans. And exporting goods to the other states is from one state to another instead of being a case of importing.
However, if you ask people there if Hawaii should be an independent country, you'll find many who say it should. I wouldn't be terribly surprised if sometime in my lifetime Hawaii gets independence. It would likely be a blow to Americans' egos.
