SFGate: Agency to Hawaii residents: Don’t hate on tourists

What this Tourism Authority action says to me is that they’re worried that the stories of violence against tourists might dissuade visitors from coming, which will cut into their profits.. Hawaii relies on tourism, but a lot of folks there absolutely despise tourists (and mainlanders in general).

If you’re looking for an example of how big rich companies try to run things, this is probably a good one. “Hey everybody, let’s be nice to the tourists so we can take their mon–I mean, show them our culture! So try not to push their fucking faces in when they wander a block from their hotel, okay?”

Yeah, we’ll see how well that goes.
