So… is racism real problem on Maui or people just exaggerating it?
Dont listen to the noise. I've lived here for 6 years now, going on 7, and I have NEVER had any problems with locals, or anyone. Everyone here is pretty friendly. but, you get what you give, if you know what I mean. If you act like a jerk, yer gonna be treated like a jerk, if you are patient and easy going, you will be welcomed. There are plenty of trolls on here and other misinformation going around. Some people think this is a political forum, anti-everything. Last I checked, its about windsurfing, and the windsurfing here is "da kine".
