omg...... i feel like... punching you O_o. But let me calm down first *calms down*

If Filipinos weren't Asian it wouldn't be on CR including that many topics. Plus there is a lot of Filipinos in CR especially.. Yes look at a map.

I thought the Filopinos were Islanders and not Asian in the Niggardly sense of the word (Only Mainlanders are Asians)

Niggardly is a real word that does not mean Black people. Look it up.

Ah thanks for the insight. Something new learned for the day

I think you can say.. not mainlanders yea. If you are referring to the main land connected to Europe. But that makes the Indonesians, Japanese, Taiwanese, Singaporeans and half of Malaysians islanders too.

In East Asia though, we only use the term "mainland" for the Chinese. As in mainland Chinese, coming from mainland China, as opposed to other Chinese everywhere else.

Technically they would be Islanders but the raped many a Korean for many hundreds of years. The Japanese interacted and abused many a Chinaman too so they are just given the honorary Mainlander title.

hey, go get your history book and take a look on the topic that we are not the only one colonized by europeans...

we are separated from other asian countries 'coz, we are too many to be grouped to other asian people!

Yes, they are Asian. Wow... I never noticed that they had their own boxes on tests... o-o But don't you guys feel special that you have your own boxes? xD I would be, if there was a separate box for Chinese. xD I would be like wow... we must be really special to have our own boxes. But, I think that the people or company does know that Filipinos are Asian. They just think that Filipinos are just too cool . xD
