According to Dr. H. Otley Beyer, noted American anthropologist, the racial ancestry of Filipinos is as follows: Malay - 40%; Indonesian - 30%; Chinese - 10%, Indian (Hindu) - 5%, European & American - 3%, and Arab - 2%.
Beneath the veneer of Hispanic, Mexican and American heritage, the people, in heart and in spirit, are Asians. they are Asian in race and in geography with an indestructible Asian heritage.
The warmth and natural hospitality of the nation's Filipinos today, is known throughout the world. The 11 cultural, linguistic and racial groups endow the Filipino people with varying customs and traditions. In spite of their diversity, Filipinos have basically two dominant traits: a love of family and a strong religious faith.

2. Filipino-American descendants are often confused of their national heritage. This can be summed up into three groups. The first group is that of the urban/hip-hop cultures. Here they dress like African-American rap/movie stars and attempt to adopt an African-American culture. The second group is those who claim to be Asian. These confused individuals are often the loudest to cry “Asian Pride,” when no other Asian groups would do so, in an attempt to force people into thinking that they are Asian. The third group is Homosexuals. The Filipino family has a strong matriarchal leadership; this means that the males are often the weaker of the two sexes. Curiously, a large amount of male Filipinos are gay as evidenced in West Hollywood and the rest of the United States, where Filipino populations are greater.
3. Filipinos love money. They will marry anyone or do anything (including selling their own kids into prostitution) as long as they can get rich. Then they take that money and send it back to their families in their THIRD WORLD COUNTRY. This allows their families to build houses out of bricks instead of mud and sticks. It also helps them support their huge families, as a typical Filipino family will have several children but not necessarily from the same father/mother.
4. Filipinos are devoutly Catholic as evidenced by their celebrations. They do not follow Eastern philosophies or religions (such as Buddhism or Taoism), instead adhering to what they learned from their Spanish conquerors. The Filipino language also borrows heavily from Spanish and English. For example “Hello” is “Hola” “Money” is “Peso.”

filipinos are the 2nd largest asian population in the U.S. filipinos were treated like the blacks when they were under the command of the white mofockers. in san francisco bay area california, back in the 60's 70's 80's... white cops beat every filipino they see. they call us "riot starters" and "bad influence" to the community. riot started..eh.. i kinda agree on dat. but bad influence? fuc no. shit mang, if it wasnt for the filipinos, san francisco wouldnt foggy at night n shit..(coz thats when they begin cooking rice) funny? no? ok.
youll see filipinos all over the world (other parts of asia, africa, north america, south america, europe, etc.)
filipinos (especially teens) who's born in the US don't embrace their culture...when they're called "asian" they get mad, they like being called "pacific islander" better...which reflects their stupidity and lack of knowledge about their culture.
damn im tired.. anyways. about me...im not full filipino. my dad is full chinese and my mom is filipino and spanish. her parents speaks fluent spanish...when i'm asked what my nationality is, i proudly tell peeps that im 100% filipino even though im not. im proud to be one.
