Are Filipino people considered "Asian"?
Posted 8/23/08 , edited 8/23/08
I always hear that lots of Flip people always debating about how some say they're Asian and some say they're not Asian.
I just wanna know what you think they are. Some just consider themselves Pacific Islands and yet that's pretty much the same thing.
I for one gave up debating and I don't bother to ever say what they are no more. But my opinion is that they're Asian. Any final thoughts?

Edit: Btw I'm not Flip so yeah 8]

I think they're asian. They're part of asia, so they're asian.

Filipinos are asians, but they got some of the cultures from pacific islanders.

:/ Ahh. This question. Some Asians don't count us as Asians 'cause we're "just a disgrace." Pisses me off...
Now, to actually answer your question:
Dude, grab a world atlas and locate where The Philippines is. It's part of which continent? ASIA. Therefore, we ARE Asians and being "Pacific Islanders" is basically the same thing.

People who are not Flip and say Flip are not Asian are all idiots. Flip is located in Asia, that's what makes Flip ppl Asian.

Ppl who are Flip and say they're not Asian are all cowards who don't accept their true ethnicity. I especially hate this type.

No reason they're not. It's not like they're from Europe or Africa.

Exactly, I heard a Flip chick talking to a black guy at school the other day and he called her Asian and she denied and said she's not Asian, yet saying she's only Pacific Islander. I thought it was retarded of her to say that
