Seeing a Black in Kona is like seeing an albino deer in the wild.
Not anymore. I have lived here in Kona near onto 50 yrs, and while that used to be the case, not anymore, I would say quite a few black folks now live and work here permanently and that’s probably the case with all islands. They fit right in, they’re just folks. But the ‘identity’ stuff is definitely taking place on Oahu. Where it requires an ancillary base of clueless, Leftist student types to populate the edges.
The 21 member, all black, cult arrival was an anomaly. In Puna. It went over like a lead balloon. The leader started our by dissing Hawaiians and their culture and that was that. Note : Popolo’s are NOT Hawaiians, they are popolo . Not a bad word . Like ‘haole’ , just descriptive.
