"Pa lagi" Is pronounced Pah Langi. Its original translation is roughly "sprang forth from the heavens," as the original white missionaries to Samoa came in airplanes, which the locals had never seen before. Now, "pa lagi" refers to any white person. Some Samoans are a bit down on white folks, and over time it has come to mean something similar to white trash.
