... it's undeniable, a lot of Filipinos work outside of the country as domestic helpers and the like, but i don't think that gives other people the authority and the reason to underestimate them or belittle them for that matter. People should be open minded enough to understand the reason why people do such thing. if the philippines were progressive enough to support it's people no Filipino would choose to be under other races. they are torn between circumstances of living up to the course they graduated to and starve, the country as most know don't have enough openings to support people so they go out, be underemployed and even suffer from abuse - words,beatings... to support their families... so i think it's very wrong to say those...

but people are people... *sigh*

The piece was a SATIRE. You don't have to take it seriously. Although there are some truths embedded in it which mostly are regarding the negative views of the people in HK towards Filipinos. Chip Tsao in one sense was introspecting and it was more offending to HK citizens. DO NOT OVERREACT.

Well, it is kind of true. And my English Teacher even told me that in some part of the world, their dictionary points domestic helpers as filipinos. At least have respect for the filipinos. They work hard to earn their keep. It's not like they slack off.

I don't like Filipinos, but w.e you know... my buddies are worse tho, they say filipinos are like fake azn, because they are all mixed with dutch and white and stuff... me being mixed it annoys me but thats not what i dislike about filipinos

like my friend who's Indonesian, she gets pissed a lot because every Filipino and their mom, just assumes shes Philippa, which is arrogant imo. and i think that's where my dislike stems from them. it shows a lack of respect for cultures outside of your own. like i know its Ironic because im like 1/2 jp and well.. yeah...

but, i was raised Canadian, being ignorant like that annoys me. like my father is 1/2 sioux and 1/2 german, but when people just automatically assume hes 1/2 cree that really pisses him off. or like my mom, when some white dude calls her chinese or something, that pisses her off too. like she doesnt even look chinese -_- but it just shows ignorance.


eh, each to their own, people will always have dislikes. but it doesn't necessarily mean one needs to lose civility when dealing with each other.

its not proper to call other countries such things but its kinda true.. many filipinos are servants in hongkong.. but even though is true, they shouldn't call Philippines as nations of servant

It's actually true. I don't understand why people gripe about this when there are far more pressing issues we should concern ourselves about.
