West Oahu?

By Benjamin Goldberg, Ewa

In West Oahu, everybody is a member of an ethnic minority. That makes it tough to practice racial discrimination in these Islands, although to be honest, there are still some in every race who like to try. The everyday resident of West Oahu is much like the everyday resident of the Mainland, if there is such a person. Mr. and Mrs West Oahu have a car, send their kids to school every morning, public, private or parochial. Mom and Dad work hard for a living. It is expensive to live in Hawaii so there are lots of working wives and mothers. And we all know it is going to get worse to pay for the Rail Disaster.

“The test we must set for ourselves is not to march alone but
to march in such a way that others wish to join us.”

Hamburgers, hot dogs, soda pop, popcorn, movies, TV, motorcycles, roller skates, bikes and rock concerts excite Oahu’s youth. Beer, bridge, dancing, night clubs, soap operas, car pools, traffic jams, taxes and hypertension are common diversions for their parents. West Oahu’s people love politics, fresh air, Saturday night, girls in bikinis, Grandma and a good T-Bone steak in spite of the fact that their ancestors came from China, Japan, Korea, the Azores Islands, Australia, the Philippines, the Pacific Islands, Europe or the Mainland.

Some of West Oahu's people are nice, some aren’t. Some are rich and some are poor. Some are fat and some are thin. Some are snooty, some are friendly, some are busy and some are lazy. We have the greatest diversity. It is just like most of the civilized world. Most visitors say they like the people of West Oahu. We hope you do too. But you never know if you don’t meet some. Dancing is the best way to meet some! And the opportunities in West Oahu increase daily.

"We only have so many bottles of wine in our lives, -
let us never drink a bad one."
