How sad it must be to be denied marriage to someone you love, 1902/2012.

THE yellow-skinned races (Mongolian), include the Chinese and Japanese, and not other lahui. The Hawaiian Race is of the Malae race (the brown-skinned), and if the Hawaiians are Malae, then they are not yellow-skinned, or Chinese. And yet, under the law of the state o Utah, haole are not allowed to marry Chinese (yellow-skins), and it is believed that Hawaiians (Malae) are included amongst the Chinese. This is perhaps a mistake, and that state of the United States needs to be educated of the nation in which you live as a Territory. And if they are mistaken about you, O Hawaii, this error is incredibly long standing. This is the first state to which Hawaiians were brought by the Mormon Faith to live, and they are still there to this day; but because of this continued misunderstanding, it is as if they do not know the nature of Hawaiians. The Kiai questions and asks, “Where in Utah are Hawaiians being taken? If we are not mistaken, and according to what is reported, they are perhaps in the desert, where they are hidden away.” Reveal yourself to be an American today!
