    Pass? Maybe you one Kama`aina, but Portagee is still haole.
    Haole = non-Hawaiian. No insult, but you not one native.

    I really understand the subject of your post - Pidgen = power!

    None taken. I fully understand the definition of the word. Believe its most closely translated to "foreign".

    I think you would agree that "haole" has taken on a somewhat connotation of white, Caucasian or tourist. By definition, Japanese, Chinese, Filipinos are all foreigners or non-Hawaiian, but you don't generally hear them referred to a haoles.

    And of course Hawaii is also one of the few places that Portagees are broken out from other Caucasian ethnic groups, due to their contemporary island history.

    It's all good braddah!

    I agree. 'Haole' in Hawaiian is 'foreigner,' but in Pidgen it means something a bit different. No argument.
