1. Filipinos are citizens that originate from the Philippines, an archipelago part of the Polynesian/Pacific Islands. The Aboriginals were primarily subjugated by the Spanish and Americans (as well as numerous others) for centuries resulting in a mixed race similar to how modern day Mexicans (Mestizos) are today. They have little in common with the East Asian races such as Chinese, Japanese, or Koreans in terms of language and culture and identify themselves more with American culture. However they can often be found in these countries working as prostitutes or maids/nurses and sending money back to their families not unlike Filipino migrants in America.

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.”
Is that person Mexican? No s/he is Filipino. That's interesting, why do they have Hispanic last names?

So what does s/he do? S/he is a nurse. Oh, I could have guessed that, s/he is Filipino afterall.

Filipinos are a hybrid race that make up asians and spanish. They are very kind, and hardworking people. My favorite Asian and Hispanic if you ask me. Many people may look down upon them however in America, their average salary is increasing and their socioeconomic status is leveling with whites.

An Asian from the Philippines that is NOT a Pacific Islander. They are usually late to parties by an hour following Filipino time which is just a little joke/excuse. Either way, they LOVE to party and luckily, confuscious didn't get to them to stop that. Usually foodies, they love food. Also their food platters usually have a good ol' sweet flavor usually.
Friend 1:Why is Cj not here yet? He's an hour late!
Friend 2: he's not late he's just using Filipino time

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.

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

Example 2 : Mmmhmm wow those filipinos are bitchazz !

Ashley: Is your boyfriend mexican?!
