A man and a dog sit in an alley in Honolulu's Palama neighborhood, while another man prepares food.

"This section housed the slums of Honolulu, and was filled with strange smells, muddy streets and small frame houses that were little more than shacks... There were few haoles in this neighborhood and most of the residents of the area learned at an early age to shout at the white boys: 'Haole pilau!' This, loosely translated, means "the white boy stinks.'"
-- Rape in Paradise, Theon Wright, 1966
