At Sophia University in Tokyo Japan we had an extended family of multinational students coming at night where the classes were taught in English. As foreigners in a far off land our group knitted together tightly. Couples were easy to form. We all knew each other. There was no engineering program, but there were pre-engineering courses.
I went through chemistry, calculus and physics while pursuing a business and finance degree. I applied to the University of Hawaii. I was accepted then held off from entrance for two years. I was able to complete my Business and Finance degree while waiting. I had bought into a small company in Japan and worked as an engineer during the daytime.
The University of Hawaii had a problem. Caucasians flooded the islands. Caucasian students flocked to the university for parties and surfing while studying. There was no room for Asian students. The Board of Directors ** decided to purge Caucasians.
The two year wait for entrance was caused by the University of Hawaii's decision to oust (attrition out) ~6500 Caucasian women and ~7500 Caucasian men to make way for Pacific Rim Asian students. I was allowed entrance after the great white purge.
When I arrived at the University of Hawaii I had to leave my Sophia University extended family to achieve engineering and computer science degrees. I found a dozen Caucasian women at the university. With attitude, they were purposeful, accomplished, and knew where they were going.
I grew up in Japan. I had many good Asian relationships. My brothers married Asian. I was interested in Caucasian women. Members of my multinational family would come for visits about six times a year. I would fly them in from Tokyo.
Hawaii was a beautiful yet brutal environment. Nature walks, beaches and the ocean were inspiring. You could drive around each island in less than an hour. An onslaught of tourists would arrive, stay for a week, then leave. At the yacht harbor, where I had my sailboat, there was a constant wave of mainland folks coming with few resources, scavenging to make a living. Racial bias against Caucasians was extreme. *
One young woman and her boyfriend rented the condo next to mine in the Ilikai Hotel Annex. They would come over and party. One weekend she went water skiing with her boyfriend. He drove the boat recklessly and flipped her causing a neck injury. They staged a fake car accident in the Ilikai parking lot to pay for her medical bills. Over the following week police and insurance investigators came knocking at my door doing background checks on that couple.
One of my Tokyo friends arrived for a two week stay. Within a week after the background checks Hawaiian undercover cops came knocking at my door. They hogtied my girlfriend abused and molested her. She took the next plane back to Japan. She told the rest of my Tokyo friends her experience.
None of my Tokyo friends came to visit after that incident. I was left alone on an island in the middle of the pacific with years of college ahead. As for the couple, she won her fake accident lawsuit and bought herself a motorcycle.
Within a year Kaua'i Moksha Polycule (Waimea Canyon) George brought her to me requesting I hookup with her. I said no with no explanation provided. He just shook his head in wonderment. He had good intentions, passing the facts on to her served no real purpose.
Inadvertently without malice she had destroyed my friendship links. Inadvertently without malice existentialists, polamory communities, and Caucasian students flooding Hawaii destroyed all possibility of establishing new university friends. With my planes I reached out throughout the Hawaiian islands, visited several complexes. I was treated as a tourist in their world. Had I known the consequences of her actions I would have paid all her medical bills and bought her the motorcycle of her choice.
When I arrived at the university to start studies I went to the fraternities and sororities I had visited two years earlier. They were shutdown, the parties were over. The university board of directors had done a thorough job of purging Caucasians. Inadvertently I spent valuable resources flying six Japan Airlines Beechcraft trainer planes out of Japan to arrive at a dead end.
As a university student, Oahu city women showed disinterest, I was a student, not material for the safe harbor marriage they were looking for. They left six planes and $6 million on the table without their knowledge, my cards held close. The world was very different for a dinner-dance persona where I learned to say no and walk away.
The story does not stop here; it goes deeper into incidents better written later. A woman living on a sailboat in the Ala Moana Ala Wai yacht harbor was escaping Topanga Canyon California communal life. We both requested quiet discretion. The great white university purge, the demise of the fraternities and sororities visited earlier, and polamory life style was not the University of Hawaii experiences intended.
Update: I meet with Tee, now here in San Diego, to share her University of Hawaii experiences. Tee started her experience two years after I started. She told me the University of Hawaii Board changed their policy, Pacific Rim Asians depleted their funds. They brought back mainland Caucasians, built an East meets West Center, a football stadium, and allowed one Caucasian fraternity and one Caucasian sorority to open. By 1975 the University of Hawaii once again became a surf and party school. For me, to late, wrong time wrong place.

I had never thought about racial discrimination prior to Hawaii.
Traveling throughout the Far East while growing up I found friends
** The University of Hawaii Board of Directors was composed entirely of Asians, there were no Caucasians or Hawaiians on the board.
