Wanna talk about bullies — growing up in Hawaii, in the public schools they had something called “Kill Haole Day,” the last day of school. At the end of the day, the locals would line up on one side of the school yard and wait for “haoles” (white kids) to come out, then pounce on them and kick the living crap out of them. It was a mob composed entirely of bullies.
I avoided this festive occasion twice, by ducking out of the last class 30 minutes before the end. But I had a friend who actually ended up in the hospital one year.
