The only thing worth mentioning about them in the world stage is how they have been fucked by the white race.

The only race that constantly proclaims they are part White/Chinese/Japanese or Korean.

They have not the great history of the Chinese and their Ascendance into the next Super Power tales to speak of nor have they the innovations of the Japanese and Koreans.

The only thing they have and are shamelessly proud is how they are the only "self proclaimed Asians" that are fluent in the language and religion of their master.

Pinoys love to boost about how well they speak English while the REAL Asians can't, they fail to see that the real Asians have had great histories and innovations to be proud of while the only thing the "Filipino" can be proud of is being good at their master's language and licking his boot.

They fail to understand that the real Asian's resistance to lick another race's boot any race for the matter is not a weakness but a strength backed by majestic histories and achievements, and in the time to come, by becoming the next super power while the Pinoy have nothing.

A Pinoy will fail to see how embarrassing she is by proclaiming how well she speaks the language of her master whom she will desperately try to marry.

She will also fail to see how pathetic she is to the world by posting forum threads begging people to accept that they don't look like a "Typical" Filipino.

A Filipino should show some dignity by accepting who they are.
Just a Filipino.
A "Typical Filipino" is easy to detect, they constantly post topics in Yahoo and Asian forums Created by and for the Chinese, Japanese and Koreans asking for approvals on the following topic:

That they have white blood in them, hence they are part white and beg people to agree.

That they are proud of themselves as a people because...erm...they should for the sake of it.

When trying to be white fails, they will desperately try to seek approval that they are Asians the likes of the three Great Asian Races.

The real Asian usually allows them to say whatever they want, talk is cheap and they know it, they also know that talk and useless loud displays are all the Filipinos are good at so the three races usually sympathize with their sorry existence and let them be.

Typical Filipino Forum Threads:
"Do I look Filipino ?"

"Do people like Filipinos ?"

"Why Filipinos are the Best"

"Why are Filipino so good at English ?" This is the most pathetic of them all.

"Filipino Pride !"

An awesome human being who shares a culture that is both similar to the Spaniards who colonized them and the east asians such as chinese, korean...etc with whom they share a continent. Filipinos are usually warm-hearted, talkative and family-oriented. Among other arts, they've developed a very cool martial art called eskrima.

American pinoys are one of the smaller minorities. Filipinos in america may adapt completely to the american lifestyle, but keep some traditions and continue to make dishes such as chicken adobo for their american-born kids.

It is not unusual for Filipinos to work in the medical field as doctors, nurses and pharmacists (probably because they are as intelligent as they are caring). It's also not unusual for filipinos to be skilled in boxing, street fighting and various east asian martial arts and easily whoop your @$$. This is why you do not often hear people insulting them (at least not to their face).

Similar to spanish people, they do enjoy large parties (often family mixed with friends) with delicious, meaty foods. They are loads of fun to be around and usually have tons of friends.

Filipinos are generally proud of their heritage and, as a minority group, have a strong sense of camaraderie with other pinoys.

Guy 1: My nurse is so beautiful

People and National language of the Republic of the Philippines.

Geographically the Philippines is in Asia. Racially however, the Filipino people/languages are Malayo-Polynesian. - Or more precisely Western Malayo-Polynesian which in turn is part of a much larger group: Austronesian... a diverse group which includes Malaysians, Indonesians, North Borneans, Aboriginal Taiwanese tribes, Aboriginal tribes from Madagascar and yes... the Oceanic branch of Austronesians: The Pacific Isanders including Tahitians, Hawaiians, Samoans, Easter Islanders etc.
The Filipino national language is based on Tagalog: the lingua franca of the Manila area. The Philippine archipelago has over 7,000 Islands with more than 140 native languages spoken throughout. Distantly related to the Pacific Island (Oceanic) languages, one can easily trace the roots by recognizing Austronesian cognates common throughout the Pacific Islands. Words such as "mata" (eye), "fitu/pito" (number eight), "manu/manok" (bird/chicken)_ essentially the same words in Tagalog and many of the Pacific Island languages.
- Other hallmarks of Austronesian languages include verb-stem reduplication, CVC (consonant/vowel/consonant) word structures, inclusional/exclusional forms for the pronoun "we" etc.
