Filipinos are often unfairly stereotyped.
Filipinos are NOT Mexicans of the East. We are as different as watermelon and oranges.
The median income of Filipinos in the States (check the U.S. census bureau for supporting info) is higher than that of white, blacks, latinos and even Chinese-Americans & Korean-Americans.
The AIDS rate in the Philippines is noticeably lower than that of Japan, China and America.
Filipinos have many amazing, more than worthwhile accomplishments
The Phil national hero Jose Rizal travelled to Japan, Austria, Germany and San Francisco. There are busts & monuments dedicated to the cities/towns he visited. In Wilhelmsfeld Germany, there is a street named "José-Rizal-Straße" (Jose Rizal Street). It is named after him.
Currently, Manny Pacquiao, Donito Donaire, Charice Pempengco and Arnel Pineda are raising the bar of Filipino pride.
Other successes include fashion designer Monique Lhuillier and singer Lea Salonga ~
However, there are Filipinos who also made contributions in math & science. Google search, Filipino mathematicians or Filipino inventors!
Filipinos are a people of many talents and memorable positive characteristics.

2. Any non-Tagalog individual of the Phillipines who has subordinated him/herself to Tagalogs and embraced the Tagalog national identity (Filipino) as his/her own.
Ilocanos, Bisayans (Visayans), and Pampangos, amongst other indigenous and non-indigenous ethnic groups from the Phillipines, sacrificed their own ethnic identities when they chose to be a part of the Tagalogs' Filipino national movement.
No, I am no longer Bisayan (Visayan). I am now part of the Tagalog Empire, I am Filipino (Tagalog).
What about the Ilocanos, Pampangos, and the other ethnic groups in the Phillipines?
We are all part of the Tagalog Empire, we are all Filipino (Tagalog). We all speak Filipino (Tagalog).
