Democrat Tulsi Gabbard, a former congresswoman from Hawaii and presidential candidate, is speaking out against the racialization of the United States.
“Please, please let us stop the racialization of everyone and everything — it’s racialism,” she said in a video posted to Twitter. “We’re all children of God and are, therefore, family in the truest sense, no matter our race or ethnicity. This is aloha. This is what our country and the world need.
“The mainstream propaganda — media and politicians — they want us to constantly focus on our skin color and the skin color of others, because it helps them politically or financially. Aloha means respect and love for others. It’s what enables us to see beyond our skin color and see the soul, the person within.”

Gabbard went on to encourage Americans to “do our best to cultivate this aloha in our hearts.” In March, Gabbard condemned cancel culture, arguing during an appearance on Fox News that the final expression of this movement can be found in Islamic terrorism.
“In a cancel culture, you have some people who believe that they are special, that they are superior, that they have the power to be able to shut down those who have ideas and views that are different, who may follow a path that they deem to be the wrong path and will therefore say, ‘No, we’re going to place obstacles in front of you, we’re going to silence certain voices so that only those who agree with us and the path that we deem to be right as the one that is before you to choose,’” she said.
Gabbard added she is happiest when she is “trying to live my life to be pleasing to God.” The former congresswoman’s comments came the same day entertainment mogul Tyler Perry delivered a powerful speech at the Oscars, where he told viewers to “refuse hate.”
In March 2020, Gabbard called out the hypocrisy of the Democrat party on issues ranging from sexism and women’s rights. She also slammed House Democrats in January after they passed new rules for using gender-neutral words, stating that they were “out of touch with reality.”
