It also has land issues by not saying anything in it about land. The bill doesn’t also talk about reorganizing a Hawaiian government. The first reason I oppose the Akaka Bill is because it seems like it’s racist. In the bill it only talks about how it’s going to help the Native Hawaiians reorganize a government
