from r/BigIsland may this post live forever:
I know this will probably get deleted because Hawaiians can’t stand any criticism, no matter how valid, of their precious Big Island but here goes.
This place sucks. I have no seen so many self-righteous and entitled people. The people in Hilo think that Kona is not “Real Hawaii.” People on this island think the other islands are not “Real Hawaii.”
People here have the attitude that they do not want you on their island. They are aloof at best and downright rude and horrendous. There is such an elitist attitude about being born and raised here. However, I am thankful my family did not stay and raise me here like my grandparents because if I was born and raised here I would probably be bland, uneducated, unsophisticated, and lethargic like most people on this island. Worse I can be like these meth heads you see missing teeth.
No one here gives a damn about anything. If you have medical needs too bad the people here are too incompetent and lazy to save your life. No one cares about the people who have to take the bus. There’s not even handicap access. I’ve tried talking personally to Hawaii Mass Transit but surprise they don’t care. Just more apathetic government type workers.
It’s a nightmare here. When I go to UH Hilo I feel like I am back in high school. The attitude of the people is really aloof.
The women here are pretty bad looking and they have bad attitudes too.
The Big Island is straight up trash. The best rebuttal people come up with is “GTFO.” No one wants to
These have been some of the worst few years of my life being here on the Big Island. I came from Orange County, a place where the KKK would leave pamphlets tied to your doorknob, and I find THAT PLACE more preferable to the Big Island.
I hope the Big Island isn’t “Real Hawaii” because it’s a fucked up trash place.
