George Will on the Akaka bill



We've criticized this tribalization measure at length over the past couple of years, and columnist George Will doesn't have any higher opinion of it than we do:

Today, the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act, when accurately described, is opposed by a large majority of Hawaiians and supported by only a bare majority of the approximately 240,000 Native Hawaiians in the state. ...

Reparations? We shall see. Independence -- secession? "That could be," [Sen. Daniel] Akaka, 83, has said, depending on "my grandchildren and great-grandchildren."
