[ laughter ] >> open it up and -- all by myself >> jimmy: look at you. look at me, yeah [ laughter ] just got back from hawaii. >> i did, yes. >> jimmy: and you wanted to go there because you wanted to stop by the protest. what was going on? >> sure, so what's happening in hawaii right now is -- there are protesters on the big island in hilo, and there's a mountain mauna kea. and mauna kea, some of you guys may know this. mauna kea is a sacred place. it's a sacred place to native hawaiians, and there's a a telescope that's being propositioned to be built there that's 18 stories. eventually, it will be the size of a football stadium, and the issue that the native hawaiians have is that it's sacred land, there was some trust that was breached between them and the state, and the people that are trying to build the telescope.
and what i wanted to do was, get my boots on the ground, go there personally, and because i grew up in hawaii, and i understand what it's like to have that sacred land. and when i was -- it was really a beautiful experience it was so inspiring, because you have men and women and children and elderly, kapuna that we call them, who aren't leaving, and they're so steadfast and passionate about this land, about the sacredness of the land. so i joke that cheat meals were church, but the truth is, this mountain is their church, and it would be like building on their church so i wanted to go, get my boots on the ground there, and speak to them directly, get a deeper dialogue with them, and then i realized something that this is so much bigger than a telescope being built this is humanity these are human beings whose hearts are hurting, and i think
any time situations like that come up, whether it's -- and again, this is like a microcosm of the bigger things all around the world. or at least how i look at it when scenarios like this pop up, when you have human beings who are hurting, any culture around the world, that's our indication that we've got to stop let's be considerate, let's be empathetic, and let's always take care of our people. because at the end of the day, it always comes down to that, taking care of the people. >> jimmy: yeah [ chee and applause good for you for doing that. i'm glad you did that. >> thank you, jimmy. >> jimmy: when we come back, i want to talk about "hobbs & shaw. >> yes >> jimmy: more with dwayne johnson when we come back, everybody.
