Hawai‘i

And I used to like John McCain.

He says that he will oppose legislation that would allow Native Hawaiians to seek federal recognition, and claims that “when Hawai’i became a state there was an implicit agreement at that time that Native Hawaiians would not receive the same status as Native Americans.” Bullshit. Did Native Hawaiians agree to that? How exactly was it implied to them, Senator? Was it also implied to native Alaskans when Alaska was admitted as a state, just prior to Hawai’i?
