Ha ha ha, This mad me laugh. I'm sorry Joanjcv but if you come from a country were your are entitled to your own opinion, that means you do have the right to say such things. In China's case, I can almost promise you he did have the right to say that or it would never have been published.

As for my opinion even in Canada in my small western town they're are quite a few works from that country here. They are all (in my opinion) poor at fallowing directions, lazy, and mostly incompetent at all but the simplest of tasks. Although that's likely not they're fault:

"The effect of pollution on intelligence was similar to that seen in children whose mothers smoked 10 cigarettes a day while pregnant, or in kids who have been exposed to lead, Dr. Shakira Franco Suglia of the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, the study's lead author, told Reuters Health. For example, heavy exposure to black carbon was linked to a 3.4-point drop in IQ, on average. Heavily exposed children also scored lower on tests of vocabulary, memory and learning."

and

"this analysis finds that for families at the very bottom of the socio-economic scale, environmental factors have a much greater impact on the variations in children's IQ (Intelligence Quotient) than genes." New Thinking on Children, Poverty & IQ: http://www.connectforkids.org/node/516

That said it appears that the main export is cheep labor, they've created a cycle naturally creating a poor IQ reduced populace essentially \providing low income workers. So really he's right, it was just rude of him to point that out in a public paper.

Servants they may be, but they do do a good cleaning job.

Its about a racist chinaman who's threatening the Philippines who he calls the 'Nation of Servants'.
To simplify it, its like when the bad guy captures Zelda AGAIN, and threatens Link to kill Zelda and the infants within Zelda who might be the work of Link impregnating Zelda.

How could that Hongkong writer claimed he was patriotic...he is stupid and racist, that's what he is.
He is not the representative of all Chinese cause I read many Chinese netizens scolded him..bah.

How could he called Philippines "Nation Of Servants" when they're just doing their jobs as a Domestic Helper? Without them what they can do. They can't even clean their owns mess.

How low of him to claim that they hold hostage these hard-working people who have absolutely nothing to do with the Spratly Islands. They're just trying to make money. That article has ignorant written all over it.

Many FIlipinos may be seen as servants, nannies, helpers, maid and caregivers, but at least those jobs are more meaningful (but no doubt, least appreciated) than many other jobs out there.
