You're right, it isn't. It's just racism.

Sadly, a lot of racism like this in Hawai’i. Thankfully, we’re able to keep a lot of it away from the tourist areas. Hope they make an example of these two and put them away for a long time.

Also, tourist areas don't tend to have problems of open hate for white people because they don't care if tourists are coming. It's the people trying to live there they have true disgust and disdain for. I'm sure they still hate aspects of the tourism industry, too, but they aren't as bad as losing a home due to rising property values. Gentrification is modern colonialism.

It took 8 years to put them away? Damn.

It's a hate crime against a white dude. Surprised they even got convicted, must have been one hell of a beating.

I’m surprised they even classified it as a hate crime.

Yeah kahakuloa is probably the last place you want to move as a white person. Even just visiting their without someone who grew up there or knows people is pretty sketch

I was going to research if the guy sold his house, but I'm not going to bother. How could they continue to live there? That neighbourhood is brutal.

No, rich white people trying to buy up houses for air b&bs or a vacation home and raising property values, pricing natives out of their land and homes is brutal.
