i my self is a filipino.... but being a filipino in this INTERNET society is pretty shameful i don't really know why... well i have good friends on the Internet too, but they don't know I'm a filipino...... they talk of filipino like they were alive to be killed 1 of my friends told of a story of their maid...he said that filipino maid piss him off.... so he give her a punch or 2......
well my self i don't really like that happening on this world what the hell did us filipino do to you guys to treat filipinos that way??

filipinos are called MAID. MONKEY. STUPID. etc.

even the dictionary

find the word manila and look at it's meaning- it will say its the land of the domestic helper.....

i beg to disagree......
RACIST is always present in any places..... it's not only for filipinos.
koreans,chinese,japanese,europeans and evern americans are also criticized also...
it really depends...
i just hope that you are filipino...

oh i rmember that 'monkey' . i think mariah was the one who said to regine v. a long time ago
we all now regine can hit high note like mariah.... i don't know if she got insecured or whatever...
i'm not ashamed being a filipino...NEVER....

maybe what you have said is just a one of the isolated cases...
filipinos are well known for man power resources...not only maids or domestic helper....
there are a lot of things that a filipino can be proud of......

here are the meaning of the word 'manila'

The capital and largest city of the Philippines, on southwest Luzon Island and Manila Bay, an inlet of the South China Sea. Founded in 1571, the city was controlled by Spain until it was seized by U.S. troops in 1898 during the Spanish-American War. It was held by the Japanese from 1942 to 1945 during World War II. Population: 1,580,000.

Are you serious? Stop your whining. People always make fun of other races, whether you're Filipino, Chinese, Indian, American, or even Australian. People always have something negative to say about a country or it's race.
I know tons of Filipino people and a handful of random people from other countries that have NOTHING negative to say about them.

There are thousands of people that get treated like dirt, no need to point fingers at one race and say they're always getting picked on.

agreed o.o

I don't think it's about hate. And the stereotypes seem to be mostly among Asians. Some Asian cultures and people overhyped into it have this ridiculous sense of Asian purity or some nonsense. Sort of how Argentinians are racist towards Mexicans, Cubans, etc. I do think that Filipinos having too much taste and admiration for Korean/Japanese culture is hurting them. I've even seen some Filipinos want to look or even be Korean (some even lie and say they are Korean..). Filipinos seem to be having an identity crisis and issues with national pride (too much pride or too little; rarely in between).

...because they are stereotypically poor, and give birth to ugly people with big noses.

I got a Filipino friend. Also went on an Alaskan cruise with staff being mostly Filipino. Maybe other people had bad run-ins with the wrong people, but all the Filipinos I have met so far were super nice and were fun to be around ^^.
And as other posters have stated earlier, every race gets stereotyped and get made fun of.
