Thoughtful reporting

A really interesting, thoughtful, empathetic and thorough podcast. I’ve learned a lot listening, and especially appreciate that the podcast provides a platform to elevate and spotlight the voices and interests of Hawaiians themselves.

False advertising, racism apologist

I downloaded this podcast wanting to learn more about the complexity of crime and culture in Hawaii. If you are interested in a discussion such as that, go somewhere else. While the host states that she does not want to take sides on the issues and instead provide a platform for discussion, her bias is so strong that she does not provide discussion.

In her initial series of episode she addresses the widespread racism that is present on our island but dismisses it as something to be expected of native Hawaiians because of our treatment during colonial times. Institutionalized racism should not be excused no matter where it occurs or who it is directed against. Blaming a race for racism directed at them only further legitimizes prejudice. It saddens me that this podcast is going to be the first look at island society for many people around the world.
