On Thanksgiving, my husband was seized and interrogated at a resort just as he came out of the elevator. He was apparently not “looking” like he fit in. This was the second time he was judged there because of his looks! And we were paid guests both times! Do resorts think that Hawaiians can’t afford to be guests? What’s worse, after reporting the situation and waiting for an apology or resolution, no one bothered to call us for a week. And it took a month of my constant calling them before they finally responded. How’s that for “non-discriminatory” professionalism? We will not let this happen a third time.
