Re: Blacks and Hawaii's Plantations

Review of Letter dated September 10, 1898
From Private Harold Booth, Co.K, First New York Volunteer Infantry (Stationed at Camp McKinley, Waikiki, Hawai'i) Contributed by Robert Brockway

“…It should be noted that there were no Malays in Hawai'i at that time and that the native Hawaiians were not Negroes or part Black. However, during the 1890s, most American naval men stationed at the Hawaiian Station thought the native Hawaiians, including King Kalakaua and Queen Lili'uokalani were blacks and treated them with contempt. Virtually without exception, whites (haoles) in the islands were racists.”

Perhaps a qualifier that a non-native Black population existed in Hawaii would be more informative?
