Is our Island really full of Aloha?

I had seen “Environmental  Racism about seven to ten years ago when a millionaire decided to allow impoverished people to live on several of his million dollar properties located in the Kahala area. The people of Kahala said, ” these people need to go back to where they belong around their own kind.” What does that even mean? We are born and raised here, we belong everywhere on our island. Another prime example, notice all of the power plants and dump sites?  The Waianae’s coast or westside has them all. why not put some in Kahala or Hawaii Kai areas? Maybe because it would decrease those people’s property values. Sometimes environmental racism doesn’t just go by skin color, it can go by market value as well.
