Maybe it's just the neighbourhoods you're familiar with.

But it's a fact that President Aquino has some Chinese ancestry on both sides. It doesnt mean he's not Filipino. He doesn't even look different from most Filipinos

Is having Chinese ancestry seen as a good or bad thing by most ordinary Filipinos?

Not that it should matter an iota.

Who? Corazon Cojuangco-Aquino? That's his mom.

Quote:
Cory Aquino was a fourth-generation Chinese-Filipino descended from Co Yu Hwan, a Chinese immigrant who settled in the Philippines in 1861.
Co Yu Hwan later converted to Catholicism and was then named Jose Cojuangco. His son, Melencio, was born in 1871. Melencio married another Filipino-Chinese named Tiakla Chico in 1894 and among their children was Jose Cojuangco, the father of Cory Aquino.

So the Chinese ancestry just ended with her and didn't get passed down? Or did you simply forget that Cory was his mom?

He also has a little Chinese ancestry on his father's side. His great grandmother was named Guadalupe Quiambao, which is a Filipino-Chinese surname. So Cory was 1/4th Chinese and Benigno is at least 1/8th. But, like I said, he looks like a regular Filipino. I was making the point that one doesn't need to look Chinese or have a Chinese surname to be mixed with Chinese.

Chinese people get made fun of, but at the same time, lots of Filipinos claim Chinese ancestry and lots of prominent Filipinos are open about it, so it must not be that bad.
