O_o i wouldnt say vietnam was colonized by the french. more like used for economical reasons.. but then again they never really were in vietnam just had control for a while until they were kicked out o___O


yea. But there are other cases like these too. The Japanese only had short rule in the Philippines(about 5 years) but we still say it has been occupied by the Japanese because it changed the culture drastically. Same with the French in Vietnam. Since the French language apparently became predominant in Vietnam at one point too and is still being taught in schools.

Yes, we are Asian.

There are many other Asian ethnicities/nationalities that have been governed or colonized by European countries in the past. Malaysia by British, Indonesia by the Dutch, Vietnam by the French, etc... The Philippines is no different than any of these other countries are.

However, when it comes to 'Race', most of us are just categorized as "Others" because of our mixed heritage and not really belonging to one race, in comparison to clear cut races such as Chinese, Malay, Indian, Thai etc...


Note:
"Filipino" is a nationality, not a race. There are many races among Filipinos themselves: Chinese, Malay, Spanish, American, Japanese, and other minorities. They're all Filipinos. But nowadays, the latter generations can't really fathom what they are anymore because it's pretty much mixed, so we just go under "Others".


very well said kabayan!!
