I lived in South America as a teenager, and I'm over 6' tall and white, and stuck out like a sore thumb being whiter and a head taller than everyone else. I was most certainly the victim of racism time and again, and I was even attacked by a mob one time.
It's human nature to gang up on the outsider.
Hawaiians refer to whites as hollies. (spelled many different ways, holly, haloe, halie, Hollie,)
Back in the 70's some white beard scratching PC liberal tried to classifie both terms as being politically incorrect. Some Moke beat the crap out of him and put him on a Continental airlines flight and sent him back to the mainland.
Back during the 60's and even the 70's one could travel to Hawaii and live on the beach. But it was common at night for the Mokes to beat the crap out of any hollies they found sleeping on the beach.
Mokes are very territorial about their waves. They were known as the original surf nazis before it became common on the Southern California coast during the late 70's.
Rule of thumb to get on the good side with the Mokes, offer them a can of Spam.
I don't count when I was in the military.
The second time as a civilian I think was in 73 or 74. $99. one way ticket with forty bucks in my pocket, my board and a ditty bag with a change of clothing and also something that the Mokes wanted that would earn me some pocket money.
The first pizza I had on Oahu was a Hawaiian pizza. No pineapple, that's was a mainland invention. The topping was Spam.
By 1970 corporate America was in process of destroying "Paradise" by building high rise hotels all along the beaches. The Islands were being turned into a tourist trap. No wonder why the Mokes hate us.
I don't think the "Mokes" have much reason to hate whites, I just get the impression they're generally tough guys, kind of like the Maori in New Zealand are tough guys. May just be a Polynesian thing.
