An awesome human being who shares a culture that is both similar to the Spaniards who colonized them and the east asians such as chinese, korean...etc with whom they share a continent. Filipinos are usually warm-hearted, talkative and family-oriented. Among other arts, they've developed a very cool martial art called eskrima.
American pinoys are one of the smaller minorities. Filipinos in america may adapt completely to the american lifestyle, but keep some traditions and continue to make dishes such as chicken adobo for their american-born kids.
It is not unusual for Filipinos to work in the medical field as doctors, nurses and pharmacists (probably because they are as intelligent as they are caring). It's also not unusual for filipinos to be skilled in boxing, street fighting and various east asian martial arts and easily whoop your @$$. This is why you do not often hear people insulting them (at least not to their face).
Similar to spanish people, they do enjoy large parties (often family mixed with friends) with delicious, meaty foods. They are loads of fun to be around and usually have tons of friends.
Filipinos are generally proud of their heritage and, as a minority group, have a strong sense of camaraderie with other pinoys.
