look up any word, like blumpkin:
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 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.
I love filipinos

-An everyday GROWING race in all countries but originated from the Philippine islands. -Majority of Filipinos aim for a medical field career, but each generation is shooting for higher professions.
-We're the rice lovers with the weird but delicious food.
-Now-a-days in high schools. You would find most Filipinos in hip-hop clubs(or any form of dance clubs) or in some interesting club that benefits the people.
-The likeable people you could get along with and we fucking rock<3
The Exotic, moderately dark-skinned, silky-black hair, those nurses in your hospitals, the race that's going to reach the top of success, a mix of asian and SPAINish blood=Filipinos.

Filipino is specifically a native of the Philipines. Mostly considered 'Pacific Islanders', Filipino's are also classified under the stereotype of 'Asian'. Most Filipino's are decendents from the Spanish, because of past History.

In the United States, most Filipino's are seen pursing jobs in the Medical Fields, Military, and Engineering.
That Spanish-looking, Hawaiian skin colored person, must be filipino.

The act of an ethnic male squatting & sharting in the face of his desired mate. When the bittie stands up, she too will resemble a Filipino!
The fair-skinned blonde looked identical to the dirty Native Asian Ilander after taking a hot and juicy Filipino!
Ali, a Caucasian girl with blonde locks, took a nasty Filipino and then looked no different than her Filipino toy, Quinn.

Ok, The Philippines is populated by Austronesian people. Austronesia means, "the southern islands." This is the name of our language family as well as our ancient culture and racial stock. For those of you that feel we are ASIAN, in part we are. The Chinese have been coming around since about 1000 AD. They have mixed with us over the years. During the 13th century trade increased with mainland Asia and for a while it became popular and a sign of status to marry a foreign wife among the nobility.

For those of you that feel we are PACIFIC ISLANDERS, the answer to that question is YES. Our native languages are closely related to Indonesian, Microneisan and Polynesian as well as the natives of Taiwan who were there before the Chinese. Like us and other PACIFIC ISLANDERS, they tattooed, have similar mythologies, practiced head-hunting, built canoes etc. So are Filipinos ASIANS or PACIFIC ISLANDERS? The answer is BOTH. Check out: apat-na-alon-tribe.com for info on our ancient tattooing.

This writing style is not indigenous to the Philippines. It was introduced by Indic-Malay traders about the 12th century. This is why words like "langit" are spelled "la-ngi" without the final "T." Hard consenants in Alibata were not used until the Spanish created the "x" or "+" marks to indicate a vowel closing consenant. This also explains why ALIBATA was not used to record histories etc. because it was not native. We passed on our geneologies and history orally like other ancient Austronesian groups. Alibata has been adopted into our culture like so many things in our past.
If you want to do a simple test to see if you are Pacific Islander, go to another Pacific Islander and ask them if "mata" means "eye" in their language too. Chances are that their word will be the same or very similar. Samoan, Tongan and Tahitian say "mata." Hawaiian is "maka." Chamorro is "ata."
