actually what you said earlier does have a bit of truth. There are some hawaii residents who feel negatively about people moving to Hawaii. Some of them are concerned with keeping the beauty of the islands, and to do that they feel they need to restrict the amount of people who move into the islands somewhat. However, I don't actually know anybody who strongly feels this way,because it would be very hypocritical, since many of them moved here themselves. Its not racist because they don't discriminate which races they'll allow on the islands or not. But this is no way the general feeling of the people who live here, i believe a very small minority feel this way.cbennett said:I cant think of any other reasons other than those off the top of my head other than maybe like both of us have already said which is that it is realy laid back compared to other ms. I dont think to many mainlanders if any will be applying other than to get a 4 year vacation or possible a lifetime vacation. Also wa not bashing the demographs because i am well aware that not too many whites make up hawaii in comparison. I was not at all refering to this, what i was refering to is the general attitude by people to mainly whites but also other races that have moved to the island. Also i heard that the adcom have some "united nations" type panel made up of one member of a ****load of races and that they ANONYMOUSLY cast votes on who should be accepted and i have heard that this process is often quite biased.
