Hawaii Changes Road Signs (Feb, 1937)

Hawaii Changes Road Signs
BECAUSE Hawaiian societies and historians objected to metal roadside signs depicting Hawaiian warriors pointing to local attractions, on the grounds that a warrior would never assume such an undignified pose, authorities have replaced the signs with new ones in which the warriors merely stand with folded arms. They are the only type of outdoor sign allowed in Hawaii.

    Seems like Hawaii was slightly missing the point!

    Hawaiian Warriers are badass motherfuckers!

    At least they’re still looking in the direction of whatever they were pointing out.

    Early example of political correctness
