Indeed, we were colonized by Spain and other countries but it doesn't mean that everyone is of that descent. And we use English because it's the universal language. I hope that made sense.

yes the Spanish did colonize us for 400 years, but that's really it. Those claiming they have Spanish blood are really stupid, only 4% of the population actually have spanish blood for them.

but on the other hand, china's our bitch, where 10% of the population has chinese blood. other than that we just keep to ourselves, well except the women who are crushing on the Germans and Irish


were did u get those stats... their vary hard to believe.. in about 330+ years of sapanish colonization i doubt only 4% of the population have spanish blood.. pipol in Zambales(not sure) but those near those isalans who speak chabakano *unsure of spelling are mostly spanish, also those in manila.. alot were married and unfortunately rape producing half spanish children.. about the chinese stuffs, there was time in the history when lots of chinese migrated to the land and escaped from china via small ships and decided to live here for good and start a family.. i think there are more chinoys* chinese filipino here because the chinese pipol found a good life here specially for business.. it served as a home.. english is a common language since the Americans, thomasites brought educ to the land and used eng.as medium of instruction.. etc.etc.. upto now, americans still have a strong influence on us.. i cant even tell if we are trully sovereign.. well thats just a thought..
