• Hawaii Officials Wanted To Rename Sandy Beach After Obama, Natives Killed That Noise

    Native Hawaiians have slapped down a proposed plan to honor Obama by renaming Sandy Beach to President Barack Obama Sandy Beach Park.

    “I’m very happy that they changed their minds about that,” said Kaneohe resident Wayne Epstein. “So are all of my Facebook friends and everybody I know.”

    “It’s basically like changing a landmark. It just wouldn’t seem right,” said Makakilo resident Shylo Quemado Moniz.

    The ridiculous proposal was introduced by Honolulu City Council member Stanley Chang. City council chairman Ernie Martin told KHON2 that the plan never got any traction from native Hawaiians. He says his office received one negative comment after another.

    Now city council members are pursuing another plan to honor Obama.

    They are either going to slap Obama’s name on a rail stop at a local federal building or put his name on a building in Kakaako, where his presidential library is expected to be built.

    Barack Obama was (reportedly) born in Hawaii. So it is unclear if the Hawaii residents opposing the name change are racists or just a bunch of hating haters.
