An asian type sort of people. Most consider themselves to be more of the HISPANIC ethnicity (because of the huge similarities in surnames) or their OWN kind of race.
A majority (Est:98%) of Filipino people are born and raised Catholic so DO NOT I repeat DO NOT ask them to engage or participate in any sort of misconduct. They are usually honest hard working folks who try to stay away from bad people and situations.
Famously known for their year round always sweet riped mangos and tagalog dialect, they are just about the most loveliest wonderful kind of people.

Mixed Asian: ok already take it easy nobody is going to take away your mangos.

A type of Asian group. They can go as Asians or Pacfic Islanders. In America, Filipinos can be seen usually as a follower of african-american culture or a prep. The prep instance happens more often. The stereotype that they are wealthy is false. They are just budget-conscious and they get their nice clothes (filipinos love Lacoste with a passion) cheap. Although they may be wealthy, they are very humble people, just not really by appearance. (You see a woman with a Dooney & Bourke purse and a Tommy Hilfiger shirt.) Overall, they are a hard-working people who tend to be successful in life.
Wow, you must be Filipino. Look at your flat nose, and brand-name clothing! TALAGA!

3) Tend to be very smart
4) Want to have light skin, and even have skin whitening soaps
5) Many invaded Guam and completely disrespect the culture
"What? You're filipino and you don't even speak the language?"
"Um...I'm from somewhere else..."
A Filipino is a person that can easily be mistaken as a hispanic. They are from asia in a group of islands called the Phillippines. They can be, and are ussually called an "oriental asian" or a "pacific islander".

Most Filipino's have a darker skin tone, flat nose, have a mustache, and smart. They love their rice and eat rice with every meal. Most Filipino's are short, and the Filipino parents are very strict and yell alot. They have wierd last names. Most Filipino's are also religous. They are ussualy Christian. Alot of Filipino's try to act gangster while the rest just dont fall under a stereotype.

Filipino's in america are strongly bonded together. They help each other out and are very friendly to each other. They are ussually part of the middle class. While Filipino's in the Phillippines are either poor or rich. They are still friendly to each other and help one another but the goverment is corrupt and the economy is horrible.

Filipinos are usually mistaken for Laos, hmong, black or mexican. They are dark with natural bags under theyre eyes, they ARENT tired. Filipinos are good at everything ! Which consists of breakdancing, singing, and drawing. Some carry backpacks or gymsacks around with a pair of sneakers for no good reason. SOME brag about how "ballin" they are and how hot they are when some arent near that. They usually get along with theyre own people and exclude you iif you arent one of them ( some let vietnamese, laos, etc in. SOME! ) Most wear contacts , even the guys. Both guys and girls can be cocky and are "ALWAYS" right. you can usually find nice filipinos. Filipinos can be found in the mall and downtown. Filipinos from white schools are whitewashed ( sometimes ) . Guys usually wear Loose hats, high dunks, backpack, big belt buckles and have faux hawks or lines. Girls usually wear converse, baggy sweats, skinny jeans, white tee, etc and have the occasional blond streaks or whole caramel colored head. They eat crap loads of fatty food ( thats why theyre isnt any older skinny ones left) but are delicious. Most are fit and have goodshape bodies when young. Filipinos love to rock the Gucci waistpouch here and there. Theyre are the lying filipinos you CANNOT trust and are crazy liars with exaggerated lives. Most show theyre love for God with there religion on Facebook saying " I <3 GOD " and have picture with a cross necklace or bracelet. Do not mess with theyre religion, they take it SERIOUSLY. They are "asian mexicans" or so they say...
Example 1 : Didja see that filipino?! Dayyum shes a crazy breaker
