Official Blog of Hawaii State Senator Gary L. Hooser
Perry and Price - Blue eyes and racial bias
KSSK DJ Larry Price went over the top this past Friday during a morning telephone interview with me.
While the entire interview was fairly contentious (which was to be expected), the truly inappropriate comments are as follows.
From the Honolulu Advertiser: http://www.honoluluadvertiser.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070505/NEWS03/705050336/1007/NEWS
“The exchange happened after Hooser used the word "honest" in asking the
hosts and listeners to assess some of the issues that arose in the Senate this
session, including his request for an environmental impact statement for the
Hawaii’ Superferry and his opposition to Peter Young as director of the state
Department of Land and Natural Resources.”
Price: "You keep using the word 'honest' senator; where you from?"
Hooser: "Where am I from? Kapa'a."
Price: "Yeah, where were you born and raised?"
Hooser: "I was born in California. I graduated high school at Radford High School."
Price: "You got blue eyes?"
Hooser: "(Laughs) I do. Does that matter?"
Price: "Yes, to us it does. Because when local people hear somebody from the Mainland talk about how honest everything is that means that something's wrong. You know when they say 'frankly' or 'honestly' we did a lot of things, you know and stuff like that, that sounds suspicious."
Hooser: "You know, I don't really appreciate a reference to where I'm from, from California, or my blue eyes, Mr. Price."
Price: "Well I don't care what you think."
You can view the KHNL television segment of the incident and/or an audio clip of the relevent part (1.5 minutes) of the “live and on air interview” here. http://www.khnl.com/Global/story.asp?S=6473276
The interview occurred on Friday morning and on Sunday the radio station issued the following apology. According to telephone calls I have received today, Larry Price read the same or a similar statement on the air this morning. I should note that the station has never contacted me directly, and the apology was not sent to me but rather to the media.
"Larry Price would like to apologize for the inappropriate personal comment directed to Senator Hooser during Friday morning's interview. We value the trust that our listening 'ohana places in us and we extend our apologies to the senator, the residents of Hawai'i and to our KSSK listeners."

If you would like to read the Honolulu Advertiser’s second story, plus possibly listen to a 5MG MP3 of the entire radio interview you can do that here http://www.honoluluadvertiser.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070506/NEWS03/705060355/1001/NEWS
How do I feel about all this?
My initial reaction when asked the question live and on the radio about the color of my eyes, was that Mr. Price was trying to be funny. When I realized he was serious, I was flabbergasted that he actually was saying that the color of my eyes was a relevant factor in the discussion we were having.
As soon as the radio show ended my telephone started ringing with people calling in, who had been listening to the radio show and were “disgusted and appalled” by the statements made by Mr. Price.
Surprised, disappointed and disgusted and are three words that probably best describe my feelings on the matter.
People like Larry Price and Michael W. Perry are in positions of great influence in our community. Each morning their radio show reaches potentially tens if not hundreds of thousands of people. They have the potential to raise the standards and increase the level of dialogue, but instead they have chosen to taken the low road.
If you have thoughts on the matter you would like to share, I encourage you to contact the KSSK program director Jamie Hyatt directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org or perhaps write directly to the FCC http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/complaints.html

Contributed by: Kekoa Paulsen | Views:683
Honolulu, HI — Dr. Rockne Freitas, vice president and executive director of the
Ke Ali'i Pauahi Foundation (KAPF), announced that nominations are being
sought for the Order of Ke Ali'i Pauahi.
Since 1953, the Order of Ke Ali'i Pauahi has been bestowed upon individuals who have been unselfish in their gift of time, dedication and service to Kamehameha Schools (KS). Today, as KS extends its reach and educational programs to more Hawaiians by partnering with other organizations throughout Hawai`i and the world, the scope of this award has been expanded.
"Consequently, the Order of Ke Ali'i Pauahi will honor individuals who have made extraordinary lifetime contributions to the Hawaiian community," said Hamilton I. McCubbin, Ph.D., chancellor and CEO for Kamehameha Schools and president of Ke Ali'i Pauahi Foundation (KAPF). "In a real sense, we are seeking to honor those who demonstrate the values and vision of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, Kamehameha's founder and the namesake of this award," he added.
KAPF is currently accepting nominations from the community through May 30, 2003. And consistent with the expanded focus, nominees need not be Hawaiian, a resident of Hawai'i or a graduate of Kamehameha Schools.
Nominees will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
- Qualities of character and leadership consistent with the spirit of Ke Ali'i Pauahi.
- Contributions or service to the Hawaiian community.
- Personal and professional achievements.
The selection committee includes David Burge, Reverend David Coon, William J. Fernandez, J.D., Patricia Hamamoto, Pualani Kanahele, Elizabeth Lindsey Buyers, Ph.D., David McClain, Ph.D., Gary Okamoto, M.D., Larry Price, Ed.D. and Bill Thomas, M.S. An award ceremony is scheduled for this November 5, 2003 at the Hawai'i Theatre.
Past recipients of the Order of Ke Ali'i Pauahi include, among others, Mary Kawena Pukui, Duke Kahanamoku, Reverend Abraham Akaka, Gladys A. Brandt, Edith Kanakaole and Senators Daniel K. Inouye and Daniel K. Akaka.
Ke Ali'i Pauahi Foundation exists to perpetuate the legacy of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop by seeking and developing new and diverse resources to further Kamehameha Schools' educational goal to serve all people of Hawaiian ancestry.
