We live in Hawaii and are white.

I understand how you feel, and no one can take that away from you.
Its a very uncomfortable feeling, and I cannot wait to get out of this
place in 2 weeks and NEVER come back.

Our daughter has dark blonde hair, and kids have put cockroaches in her hair
at school. They knock her down. They are downright mean.
The school just looks the other way.
About a month ago, she stayed home for 2 weeks.

We are moving to Flower Mound - would love to meet you and your family.

White people are called "haole" (pronouced HOW-LEE) which means WHITE PERSON,
in a derogatory way.
I believe black people are called "popolo".

Hawaii is RACIST, no matter what anyone says.
They kiss butt to tourists, as that is the states income, then call you a "haole" as soon as
you turn your back. Or a "popolo".

From our previous vacations here, I "THOUGHT" the people here were friendly.
NOPE. The folks here want your money, but do NOT like the tourists. Double
edged sword I guess.

We are leaving with just our suitcases of clothes. Cannot afford to ship our
furnishings back to the mainland.

I cant wait to get to Texas.
I'm pretty sure Texans wont be calling me a 'haole' out there, and I doubt any
kids will put cockroaches in my kids hair.
I bet I can walk into Walmart and won't be stared down. I have not even left
our house in the last 6 months. Tired of trying to prove myself. Im just me.

Gosh, as I said, I feel for you.
If youd like to get our families together after we get to Texas, just send me
a private / direct message.

Bless you ... and keep your chin up.

Oh I forgot to mention, the "Last Day Of School" tradition:
Beat A Haole Day

This occurs in the bathrooms at school.

Needless to say, the last few years our daughter DID NOT go to school on the last day.

Interesting, the previous owners of our home moved back to HI and they are white. I can't say if they didn't like TX or not, I don't know but they upped a moved back before selling their house (one of the spouses stayed an additional 6 months to try and sell the house) and left their furnishings. They literally just packed up the pets and their clothes.

I do have friends however that live in HI and they don't like it but don't have much of a choice since their spouses are in the military.
