When the Hawaiian's saw the Whites (I'm Hapa Haole - mixed Asian + White) they thought they were ghosts or some odd being. The Whites didn't greet in the close up manner that the Hawaiian's did, wore big clunky clothes, and well were White. So it means ghost person, foreigner, or White. HOW it's used determines weather it's nasty or just fact.
