I'm born and raised in Hawaii, and I think you're attacking people for all the wrong reasons. It is very different here in Hawaii. I mean, as you kept repeating, we do live on a small island in the middle of the ocean. And for us "locals" who live here, there is a great sense of pride in that. There is something warm and kind about the islands, and it's called aloha. Anyone can get a sense of belonging here. I have been to the mainland, and it's completely different. In some sense, it's a culture shock. All the anger and disappointment about having to move to find a job that we could do here is about more than just a sense of entitlement. I am also native Hawaiian. This is my land, and I have every right to stay here and make a living, just as my ancestors did before, you know, the "travelers" arrived. It does make me a little angry that people are coming in and taking jobs away from people who have really paid their dues- in ways that you do not understand. You say you love it here. Do some research and maybe you'll find out what had to happen so that you could eventually have the privilege to visit. If you are native Hawaiian, then I apologize, but then you should understand where I'm coming from. If you can get a job in Hawaii eventually, more power to you, but I just wanted you to get a glimpse of the reason behind the anger.
