Black, white, brown, orange or purple doesn't make me no mind! It's all about the woman in the eyes of the beholder and if she will accept you in every way, then you are the lucky one! Who cares about statistics, the in-laws or anyone else!

That's interesting, the interpretation of steretypical Filipina.

I usually think that stereotypical would be the ones without the obvious chinese blood mixed in. Many, many, many Fiipinos have chinese blood mixed into their bloodlines. But it tends to make them more lighter-skinned, more asian eyes, etc).

I guess that would imply that the 'stereotypical Filipina' look are the ones that are mixed Chinese?

South Asian - meaning Indian, Sri Lankan, Bangladeshi, etc.

I think it's 100% cultural thing. An African-American/Black male might be similar skin colors (South Asians can be so dark, to almost look black). However, the culture is completely different.

I think 'culture' is what dominates who they marry well-beyond 'skin color'.

Plus Filipinos absolutely love, love, love the NBA and basketball.

The standard 'Filipino attire' seems to be the basketball jersey.

Dennis Rodman's Dad permanantly retired to the Philippines, and when I heard the news, it just 'fit' perfectly. It didn't strike me as odd, but as perfect.

Japan is only xenophobic against other asians....but you will get royal treatment if your non-asian from what I have seen
I think most of what you're thinking is just pure speculation without any direct experience. Which is understandable, but not necessary accurate.

I also don't think Philippines is 'very xenophobic' about blacks, indians, arabs. I've spent a lot of time in the Philippines, and it seems more welcoming than most other Asian countries in that regard. Korea is significantly worse. In the Philippines, you'll see tons and tons of 'those people' who own businesses and shops and everything else. You don't see that in Korea at all. Mindinao is also Muslim, and the Arabic people who go there to live, start a business, etc. are highly sought after. They are seen as extremely wealthy, plus share the same religion in those parts.

Japan and xenophobic. This taps into a pet peeve of mine, as I've spent so much time in Japan, Korea, and Asia. But I've regularly found Japan to be MUCH LESS xenophobic than people's stereotypes of Japan. By direct experience, I've found other countries like Vietnam, Korea, China, to be much more xenophobic. I've found Japan to be one of the least xenophobic. Japan isn't perfect, but in the xenophobic scale of things, it's much, much, much less xenophobic than it's neighbors.

The stereotypical Filipino is definitely not mixed Chinese-looking, this guy just prefers that type and tries to convince others that most Filipinos look East Asian. He also seems to have a problem with blacks because I remember him saying something about Negrito Filipinos as being inferior. I think that's why he's trying to make it seem like Filipinos & blacks have bad relations, even though they aren't really that bad.

This black guy seemed to love the Philippines and the family that he stayed with considered him family. I think if he were mistreated and discriminated against, then he wouldn't have left with such a positive view of the Philippines. And notice how a lot of people in the background don't even pay him any mind, even though he's a tall black man.

I agree!

As a general observation, I've also noticed that when I look at youtube clips in regards to the 'Filipina look', they seem to generally show an overwhelmingly large array of photos of a very mixed European look or a very mixed Chinese look.

Most Filipinos have a very Filipino-Filipino look, not a mixed one. Not that there isn't a lot of mixed Filipinos, but the non-mixed look would be much more common and typical.

I didnt say the stereotypical filipino is mixed chinese looking....Im saying the ones who look more stereotypical asian are more likely to not marry outside their race

the stereotypical filipino is the manilaeno....who is black looking due to heavy negrito admixture t..from what I see negrito type manileno women love dating black men....the closer to manila you get the more negrid in features the people become

there are non-mixed asiatic looking filipinos

people seem to forget that urban poor folks are mixed with negrito....a pure austronesian filipino would look closer to southern chinese
