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.


If only mainlanders were asians.... then what about people in japan? ^^


i totally agree...we are asians coz it is said so in class and in history and geography...and we are not technically pacific islanders coz even though we are a group of island near the pacific ocean, we dont belong there...

Even then, when you're filling out forms, they always put something like "Asian/Pacific Islander" both into one option

Lets have a little review... Geography thats the case..

Inhabitants of Russia's Kuril Islands, Alaska's Aleutian Islands, and the Taiwanese, Japanese, Filipino, and Indonesian islands, although technically bordering edges of the Pacific Ocean, do not fall under the definition of "Pacific Islanders" because such islands are not actually located within the Pacific

Pacific Islanders is not a race either.. it was just coined to denote the inhabitants within the pacific sea..

Philippines is not a pacific Islander.. both geographically speaking and likewise political boundaries as well.

FILIPINOS ARE ASIAN.. the philippines is located in the south east asia.. yes its true that we were colonized by the spaniards before, but that doesnt mean that the philippines became a part of spain.. its also true that before, some filipinos like jose rizal wanted the philippines to be a part of spain.. but it wasnt granted..

about the language: yes, some spanish words has the same meaning in tagalog words.. for example, the word "mesa" is both a spanish and tagalog words and its meaning in english is "table"... this is because the philippines was colonized by the spain for 333 years... and that is just an influence of the spain colonizers...

i hope that this helped you.. ^^

Not really Asian, we're more Pacific Islander but the best way to describe us? Asian Pacific Islander.
