The people of the Philippines

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.

They are part of what makes this world, amazing.
If u want an example of how hardcore an individual of Filipino heritage can be, read about the U.S. army scout sniper Ramon Subejano.

A Filipino is a nationality. A nationality consisting of the different ethnicities of Philippines. Many of these ethnicities (a strong 95%-97%)trace their roots to the Austronesian people who immigrated out of Southern China into Taiwan as the Northern Mandarin ethnicity became the dominant culture of China.

The Austronesian people travelled well through out the Malay Archipelago (Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, East Timor, and Papua New Guinea) and many who have settled through out began migrating back-and-forth within the region and also back to mainland Asia. The varied migrations between the Malay Archepelago and the mainland created very ethnically mixed cultures through out the region (And this is before the Europeans came) which is why Filipinos and other "Malays" don't have a consistant racial appearance as opposed to the Chinese and those who are Pacific Islanders(who are in fact of the same blood but not mixed)

The Defining point between Pacific Islanders and Filipinos comes to the fact that once the Austronesian people reached Polynesia they lost all ties to Mainland Asia, unlike the cultures of the Malay Archipelago who would eventually intermix with many of the people of Southern China and Indo-China. Both of these cultures technically are Asian, but the ethnicities are divided by cultural connections with the mainland.

When it comes to the hispanicization of the Philippines, one has to realize that only a small minority of Filipinos actually have Spanish Blood. A Stanford Study has shown only 3% of Filipinos are actually mixed with either Chinese and/or Spanish blood. Much like African Slaves in Colonial America, who received "Christian" Anglo-Saxon/Scots Irish/Irish Protestant names. Filipinos Recieved "Christian" Spanish names and prayed to a white Jesus much like every one else in the world who fell victim to colonialism.

The Colonial Mentality is very much apparent in the Filipino culture, where many will lie about the background claiming their Spanish roots when in fact they probably bleached their skin and got plastic surgery on their nose. The Filipino Media adds on to the stigma against being brown by inundating the T.V. Screen and billboards of the city with White Meztiso Images.
"They say we beat the European Imperialist and yet all you see are white faces on the T.V. Screen."
^something to think about for all my Filipino brothers and sisters.

1. a native or inhabitant of the Philippines.

Contrary to popular belief, Filipinos are not Pacific Islanders. Pacific Islanders is a strict term and refers exclusively to Oceania. People generally stereotype Asians being "East Asian", this in turn has made Filipino-Americans who do not fit the stereotype...to not want to be termed Asian.

However, the Philippines is part of ASEAN (Assoc. of SE Asian nations). They are not part of any of the Pacific Islander nations which, again, refers to Oceania.

c - Yes

a - does that include the Philippines?
c - Have you checked the map lately? that island is considered part of SE Asia. Taiwan and Japan are also islands, that doesn't mean they are Pacific Islanders. Read a dictionary sometime.

People who come from the Philippines (in Southeastern Asia), a nation greatly influenced by Spanish, American and Japanese cultures, to name a few. They speak Filipino as their national language as well as their native dialects, the most widespead of which are Tagalog and Bisaya.

A Filipino is a person who is native or linked to the Philippine Islands, located in South East Asia and around the West Pacific.

There is a big hype on what the Filipino Race is, Asian or Pacific Islander? Well, after searching the internet, looking at historical studies and talking about the issue (being Filipino myself), Filipino's are geographically located in South East Asia, Whilst the culture of the Philippines is very much similar to that of the Pacific Nations. For example, Parts of the Philippines practice traditional tattoing, the styles used and documented are very closely linked towards Pacific Islanders, If you are fluent in one of the 170+ Filipino Languages, they are very similar in structure and style to that of the Pacific Islands. More in Detail, the Filipino People are of Malay-Austronesian Descent, Austronesian people come from all over the Pacific, including the Philippine Islands, the race of Austronesians are widespread, from Native Hawaiians, to Somoans and New Zealand's Maori's, The Filipino People fall into the Category of 'Austronesian' as the race is linked into that Family through early settlers of the Austronesian race in the Philippine Islands. To settle this issue, the Filipino People are of Asian and Pacific Descent, through their Austronesian Ancestors. Whilst the Culture is a lot more Polynesian than Asian. The Philippine Islands are very complex when it comes to cultural and race issues, since the two issues are very diverse, The Philippines is a melting pot of the worlds cultures. Though, Traditionally, The Filipino People are of Asian and Polynesian Descent. Still their remains a large Spanish and Mexican Influence towards the race, there still remains a large number of latinasian people within the Philippines and internationally, The Filipino people are truly a very diverse Race, and are known to be one of the most diverse in Asia due to the multiple world powers that once colonised this Island Nation.

Amazing race of people who mostly are confused whether they are Asian or Pacific Islander when they are really both. Some Filipinos especially Filipino Americans think they are black. But that's because they listen to too much Hip-Hop. not saying that listening to Hip-hop is bad for Filipinos but like San Miguel beer and other forms of alcohol it should be listened to with Pulutan.
Other Filipinos must speak Ilokano if they live in Hawaii and only in Hawaii must they speak Ilokano. In the mainland USA they can Speak in any Other Filipino language they wish. If

Civilian life is too hard for a Filipino they must join the Filipino

Mafia by enlisting in the US Navy, which is really the Filipino

Navy. To become a full fledge Member of the Filipino Mafia

you must be fluent in Tagalog. This is different than the

Ilokano Mafia,in which you must be fluent in Ilokano. To join the Pacquiao mafia I think U have to be fluent in Visayan as a pre-requisit. A true Visayan also has to own a Kris Sword, married Visaya couples will both be equal in skill with the Kris Sword. All younger generation Males are good at basketball or have repressed basketball skills that only shine through daily practice.
Last of all, Ilocanos are either Rich or extremely Kuripot.
Manny Pacquiao is the Greatest Boxer in the universe. Floyd Mayweather Jr. Is an arrogant bastaard, a Fat Filipino Martial Artist who eats fish, rice , and pork on a daily basis could whup his @$$!
