     Honolulu is also unique in being the only major metro area in which Japanese Americans outnumber all other Asian nationalities.JAs (200,000) are followed by Filipinos (170,000), Chinese (54,000), Coreans (23,000), Vietnamese (8,000) and Indians (1,500).The Big Five's response was to recruit 180,000 Japanese between 18.As the Japanese became the islands' largest ethnic group, they too began organizing to fight inhumane working conditions. territory, they were exempt temporarily from the barrage of anti-Asian legislation directed against Chinese and Japanese immigration.

     The surf and luau lifestyle is, of course, only a pretty myth for most Honolulu residents.Where you can always find a Zippy's for saimin and teriyaki plates heaped with rice and macaroni salad.      A stroll through Ala Moana Shopping Center or Kapiolani Park will satisfy anyone that in Honolulu Asians are the majority. The city's 610,000 Asian/Pacific Islanders comprise 68% of its 900,000 total residents, making the Honolulu area the nation's third largest AA population center.Even excluding about 100,000 native Hawaiians, Samoans and other non-Filipino Pacific Islanders, Asians make up 57%, over twice the percentage for Whites (26%).For the most part, however, the Big Five's ruthless tactics and absolute economic dominance remained intact until World War II.Only after Hawaii became a state in 1959 did Asian numerical strength begin translating into political and economic power.
