HarryTho, a reader and contributor to Hyscience emailed me about this developing story on an emerging problem in Hawaii as a result of the ruling by the federal appeals court today:

We have a problem developing in Hawaii, as of today. A US Federal Appeals Court has overturned a federal judge's decision that a Native Hawaiian school was admitting students in accordance with the US Constitution. The Appeals Court decided, today, that the school's admissions policies are racists and unconstitutional. The local Native Hawaiians are outraged. They are assembling in numbers all over the island and plan a protest march on the state capitol tomorrow morning. This could turn violent! In the past they have raised placards that read, "Kill a white person a day" ... over the very issue overturned in this case!
Here's an MSM account of what's behind HarryTho's mail:
HONOLULU - A federal appeals court Tuesday struck down the exclusive Kamehameha Schools' policy of admitting only Native Hawaiians, saying it amounts to unlawful racial discrimination.

Overturning a lower court decision, a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit of Appeals in San Francisco ruled 2-1 that the practice at the private school violates federal civil rights law even though the institution receives no federal funding.
