and Filipino is Nationality, A Nationalist is someone who cares and love his/her own country and people, the National or Citizens. National flags, anthems and other symbols of national identity are commonly considered highly important symbols of the national community.

Here are some of the National Symbols

Chinese, Korean and Japanese people do not really bother to please the westerners in many cases.
Maybe " soft " is not the right term. I think we are just " Amiable and Cultured " .

I have never heard about Spanish and Portuguese being discriminated in Europe. Why ? And why only the former 2 most powerful countries ?

They aren't.

Any current ill will is a result of those boring and staid Northern European nations propping up those festive and exciting Southern European nations because their economies can't support their entitlements, but even that said, people in Sweden or Germany or the UK hardly have negative views of the people in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, etc.

If you are an American and a member of an ethnic and/or racial minority group in your home country when traveling to Asia you are still looked down upon as contrite, someone to fear and often the brunt of cruel stares. Conversely, if you are an American and a member of an ethnic and/or racial minority group, your ability to live and work in a country different than your own also sends a very strong message that you can afford to live and travel wherever one chooses to do. So, the latter truth overshadows the small mindedness that one may encounter. In closing, as an African-American who has been living and working in China for two years, the latter truth has given me the fortitude and resolve to hold my head high knowing that I am among the elite and so whatever form of racism or discrimination that I may encounter, I know that what brought to me China was my skills, talents and abilities and not the color of skin. So, "He who laughs last, last best." And, as such, I can command a premium salary . So, the joke is on others and not on me.
