Probably because many are spewing so much hate towards them. Any white person that wants to come here or move here are told to “go home” and given paragraphs of hate on Facebook. Tourists pay your bills people, even those of you lucky enough to milk the food stamp, welfare and HUD system. Should be grateful instead of hateful.
Whoa. Aren’t you a piece of entitled work. I am very white and have never experienced any issue on Kauai the many times we have visited. But then again….it’s not my home so I treat everyone and everything with respect.
You simply ooze contempt and privilege.
Contempt and Privilege? Can you read? Here ya go, in “stoopid people” terms I basically said if people stopped being mean to them the numbers might increase…
And of course you treat everyone with respect, your white and on vacation… and knowing words like privilege you probably stay on the more high end of the spectrum.
…. tourists…. ugh.
Was that irony/sarcasm or hypocrisy? Hard to tell. But given the usual tone of that poster and spelling challenges, I suspect it’s the latter. Sorry Susie, guess you had your first run-in.
Agh, Wha? Based on my usual posts this would hit the sarcasm hard.
yep! Ditto what Commonsenseich said…..the beautiful garden island has been polluted with ill will and nasty ‘locals’. Enjoy your plantation.
Here commonsensish not only decries the “H” word but references the “R-card” as well! The Facts have been evidenced in such a way, that there is no returning to the Status Quo. Status quo are upper leaders who were willing to give up a legacy of truth and integrity! It is not about the stolen mailbox, its about Illegal militaroTMT militaroSuperferry, militaroMissileincoming not an oops, add every state division department entirely corrupted, not limited too, to Kauai Hawaii through to Hawaii Island judiciary, senate, house, county TOP to BOTTOM. Read Benish “The Fifth Seal”., true stories victims still await justice.
Wow, relax killa, no one said it was OK to bring the mailbox, TMT or the Superferry into this discussion. Talk about going WAAAAYYYYYY left field.
Back to the day of coconuts,mangoes and vegetable gardens! Good job locals!
RK, that actually sounds nice!
Beaches are overcrowded. Long traffic lines. Weekends at restaurants require reservations. Too many reasons that show our island does not have enough space for the amount of people who want to come here to visit.
