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

LUMPIA PLEASE!

This is another response to qiuwtp...


Filipinos are amazing people. My girlfriend is Filipino. They have ridiculously delicious food, even though alot of it is really unhealthy. Their language (Tagalog) is one of the more interesting Asian languages, and I am currently trying to learn it. They are good people with good morals. If Filipinos like you, they like you like family. Unconditional love and very caring. English with a Filipino accent is so cool to listen to. Filipinos are beautiful people, generally having dark hair, large foreheads that symbolize great intelligence and personality, very angular and refined features with high cheek bones. I have a Filipina aunt who is smart, funny, and very nice (traits shared by most Filipinos)
Lumpia and Pancit bihon are amazing Filipino foods.

Filipinos are kind and accepting.

Tagalog is a language that rivals my own native language of Greek.

Greeks love Filipinos, because both races are hella awesome

Filipinos, or Flips as they are better known as, are a species of sub-human from the Philippine Islands in the South China Sea. The islands serve as the world's largest zoo boasting many varied species of flora and fauna along with the indigenous sub-humans called Flips.

They are famed worldwide for copying famous inventions, cuisine, cultural traits and ideas and re-branding them as their own. They are however, also infamous for not being able to copy them perfectly and all their products end up working worse than the originals. When this happens, the typical Flip will then resort to lying about it, outright cheating more gullible folk or just plain stealing when all else fails.

As the world's only zoo nation. They are much loved for the spectacle they afford everyone else. From old favourites like the 'world's largest outdoor swimming pool whenever it rains', to 'electing an old boxer with possible brain damage to be a president'.

They also have the great honour of being the test bed for every chemical weapon deployed in human history. Mustard gas? It's called Mustard gas because it was first deployed in Makati, Manila.

The 'M' in Mustard was taken from the 'M' in Manila. Though the gas deployed at that time was significantly weaker than what is used today, hence the surviving, yet mentally retarded populace.

And that my friends is the example of a Filipino.
Person A: Man! That's a nice pair of shoes you got on!
Person B: These aren't shoes, they're flip flops!
Person A: Flip flops?
Person B: Yeah, you know, the skin of a flip? They're resilient as hell! More than a century of lying and stealing while believing their lies makes a flip quite resistant to the elements!

Person A: Man! That's awesome! Where can I get me some flips to skin?

Person X: Dude, these crummy "Filipino Pride" headphones broke after a day of use!
Person Y: Well yeah, it's "Filipino Pride" for a reason, you buy them to support the zoo, but you're meant to steal headphones from the other tourists!

-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.
