never heard of joe's. i'm quite
sure joe's wasn't the only place like that in hawai'i. the informal
rule of 'no haole men' could have been a response by guys who constantly
faced haole-only rules throughout the islands. even after i graduated
from high school 1966, the exclusive elk's club near the kaimana was
haoles only. racism rears its head in subtle ways... i.e. requiring
dress most locals never had. so race is transformed into class.
