Please delete if dupe

Well, while doing some web browsing, I found a post that says "Wow, Filipino's are offended when we call them asians" and another post that says "I thought they get mad when we call them pacific Islanders.

Well Filipino people lives in Asia, but the government/some random ass people decided that they should be pacific Islanders (They live in an Island which is called Philippines Island)

So what do you guys think? should they belong to the Asian group or to the pacific Islanders group?

Cuz I, for 1, iz confuzed

im not a wanna-be of either. Filipinos are considered Asians, specifically South-east Asians.
but then what's the difference between the two? we can be both Asians and Pacific Islanders.

Filipinos are Asians. You should know that.

Filipinos are Pacific Islanders? Please consider this link.

Whoever told you this is either a trolls or some Ignoramus who flail their hated at certain ethnic group.

Filipinos are Asians...

I'm Filipino and i knew from school that my homeland is a part of Asia so technically, we Filipinos are Asians.

Why would people say we are "wanna-be Asians" if we are already Asians?...

0.0. Just call them both so you don't offend both sides.

Wow, Filipino's are offended when we call them asians = false because believe me, Filipinos are proud to be Asians...

I thought they get mad when we call them pacific Islanders. = false because only idiots consider Filipinos as Pacific Islanders and I've never heard anyone say that we are Pacific Islanders... lol

Finally! a thread about this!! I HATE it when filipinos claims that they're not asian but they're pacific islander. It pisses me off to no ends. A good (filipino) friend of mine keeps saying that she's pacific islander, and she's always like "the Philippine's in oceania! not asia!" and I always tell her that the Philippines is not in oceania, it's in southeast asia. And one time another filipino said that he was pacific islander because they're on an island. oh really? please explain japan then, are they pacific islander? Plus, the Philippines is an archipelago, and so is Japan.
Most filipinos that I know (well, in my case, all filipinos that I know in real life), claims that they are not asian and that they are pacific islanders. Why would they steal another identity, and claim themselves to be something that they're not? btw, I'm not saying that all filipinos are like this, just the ones that I know in real life.
