However, I do hear the occasiona N**** joke in my presence... Of the friends and colleagues I have that are black, I think the most common expression of "differentness" they all joke about is the fact that the first question anyone asks them is, "Are you in the military? You wanna get it right, be friendly, open and inoffensive, so if I'm rough around the edges here, apologies! I'm not sure if I'm qualified to really answer, but that's never stopped me before. And I echo the sentiments of the others; in summary, you'll get back what you put out.

Nearly one-third of marriages in the Islands are between interracial couples by far the largest percentage in the country and four times the national average, according to a new analysis of the latest census figures.

I have traveled around the world, so I am used to the curious stares I get from locals and natives. :)On forums and in chatrooms, the same thing happens to me - people may mistake me for female, especially since I tend to adopt the more 'pretty' Hawaiian usernames, and since the subject of gender never really comes up.
But, as a minority, I look at all my brown skin and black skin people as extended family... then block the email address and report as spam....
