another earlier post, I said native Hawaiians were in no
danger of going the way of the Dodo bird. But perhaps I spoke
too soon because no sooner did I say that, then the US Census
Bureau released the latest census numbers which indicate,
over the last four years, that the number of native Hawaiians
declined by 1.3 precent (279,651 down from 283,430).
Obviously, it is unclear, and probably too early to tell
whether this is a statistical anomaly, the start of a trend,
or a reflection of Hawaiians moving to other states [/irony].
But if this trend, for whatever reason, continues it may
portend even more bad things in store for us…See the story here.
