Contrary to American belief, Filipino people are actually very much like the other SE Asian countries. They have strong family values and suffer from political corruption and Muslims. However, Filipinos on UrbanDictionary are clearly susceptible to raging for some reason. Anyway, here are some reasons other countries have us figured wrong:

*When, persay, a Filipino student arrives in the U.S, he/she is immediately under the pressure of American society at school to be what they keep saying. Some Filipinos will go along with it and become "ghetto Asians." Others will fight it. Still, others may try to stay under the radar so they don't need to hear any more ignorance.

*They believe that just because we were an export colony of Spain, that were all a bunch of Mexicans. While it is true that about 2% are part Spanish, that leaves the rest to be Pacific Islander and Asian. Even so, it's not your race that determines your personality.

*Since America is the dominant power, what rumors flow out of there are considered superior (to a diminishing extent, however).

*In other Asian countries, they are similarly racist towards Filipinos and face discrimination, thus, get worse jobs than if they were of different descent.

Immigration Pests.

Unable to handle themselves, they run their own country down right after the Spanish tried to civilize them.

Like Africa, once the white man left, it's another textbook example of Race/IQ to country prosperity statistic.

Known throughout the world to kiss the white man's shoe and projected in the future to lick their East Asian master's feet as well.

Marrying a White/East Asian man is the goal of a Pinoy women.

The first thought of any mainland Pinoy is to migrate out of the shithole they have created.

Pinoys have a huge false sense of pride, Filipino Pride, also known as the pride of nothingness, they like to talk about how they have contributed to the society they immigrate to that is doing perfectly well before taking pity on them and let them in.

Pinoys quickly forgot they were "escaping" from their shithole, and were not "asked" to be in their new immigrated country.
They have this false sense of entitlement that their host country simply cannot do without them because Pinoys run their own country so well.

No White/East Asian countries would roll out a red carpet for Pinoys, the host's undoing will be its own kindness to these Pest.

However, recognizing that these pest love to migrate to prosperous country, measuring the amount of Pinoy immigrate can be use as a tool to indicate the prosperity level of the host country until these Pest population takes root and run the host country down like how HIV kill its host slowly as it turns into AIDs.
Happy Filipinos:
I married a Chinese guy, I am going to have a good life :D

I love my white husband not because of race but because he is a good man (yeah right...)

I am so proud of my Filipino race and country that I can't wait to migrate out of it !

Filipino Pride! Fuck Yeah!

We are Smart Asians ! (Sorry to disappoint you Pinoy, the Chinese, Japanese and Koreans don't want to have anything to do with you, but of course, your false sense of pride will always be at your disposal)

The only race that goes about hanging the East Asian pride on themselves even though they are just pacific islanders, Pinoys set up Asian Irc, Asian Ring, Asian this and that and when you check it out, it's all Filipinos, how disappointing, not the real Asians...

Loosely, any person who is a citizen of or immigrant from the Philippines.

Filipinos are an intelligent hard working group of people who are better categorized as Pacific Islanders than Asians. Although the 7000+ islands comprising the filipines are closer to the area known as asia, the culture and people share little else with their asian neighbors.

Filipinos do not use chopsticks and the preferred method of eating is with the bare hands, Tagalog (as well as the 140 other languages native to the the area) are of polynesian origin and structure. Traditionally, dance, mythology and ritual tattoos were a part of the culture, in similar fashion to most other polynesian cultures.

During the Spanish invasion, the Spaniards continued their practice of killing anyone unwilling to convert to Catholocism (i.e the native American indians of Western America). A smart lot, most Filipinos converted rather than facing a painful death. However, much of the indigenous culture was sadly lost.

She doesn't really look asian - maybe she is Filipino.

Racially, there is no such thing as "Filipino" race. This is because Filipinos consist of Spanish, Chinese, African, Indian, Polynesian, Austronesian etc. blood. They are among the most resilient and adaptable people on Earth. You can find them in the coldest parts of Alaska or Canada, to hottest part of Middle East, to the roughest of oceans as seafarers. They are generally small and short in stature, but are much tougher than they appear. Their faith in their religion and their family bonds make them the mentally toughest group of people in the world. Filipinos particularly those who grew up in the Philippines are shy and unassuming. However, behind those meekness lies the heart of a lion! Filipinos who grew up in the first world countries generally are arrogant.

Filipinos are very hospitable and friendly, often misinterpreted by English-speaking Europeans or Americans as something else. Life is tough in the Philippines that's why Filipinos go abroad even in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia or Nigeria. If you think your life is tough due to the current economic situation? You ain't seen nothing, mate. Go live in the Philippines and you'll see what really "tough situation" means from a Filipino perspective. No matter how bad a situation is, a Filipino will always find a reason to laugh.
Manny Pacquiao is a great example of a Filipino. He is far from perfect that is why he represents the "real Filipino" as opposed to Jose Rizal or those elite people of the past.

Filipinos are not just "another race". We are hardworking, honest, and proud to be alive and well. Our country may be small, but we still love and respect it. Who cares if we're short? Who cares if we're poor? We live everywhere in the world. We don't eat rice and work all day. We have vacation time! Some of us are ANNOYED and ANGERED by the stereotypes that Americans and other people make up about us. We try to be friendly and on good terms with people. But sometimes people just don't care...

In conclusion, a Filipino is an honest, kind, loyal, and friendly person. A Filipino is WHO I AM!!!
I AM A FILIPINO!!!!!!!!!!
