Maybe it's partly where they were brought up. Maybe they tend to live in the more 'ghetto' areas.

I was thinking that's the case for Filipinos, but not for Indians. I think they really are up there. I found the per capita list, but it's from 2000. Better than nothing
Per capita income in the United States by ancestry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Of the Asians. I threw in Mexican for comparison sake

1. Japanese- $30,075
2. Indian- $27,514
3. Taiwanese- $25,890
4. Chinese- $23,642
United States average in 2000- $21,587
5. Filipino- $21,267
6. Thai- $19,066
7. Korean- $18,805
8. Pakistani- $18,096
9. Vietnamese- $15,655
10. Laotian- $11,830
11. Mexican- $10,918
12. Cambodian- $10,366
13. Hmong- $6,600

A lot of the Filipinos I've known strive towards government jobs, whether they're local, state, or federal, or at the very least, unionized private sector jobs. The same that the Chinese push their kids to become doctors or lawyers because it's "good work," lots of Filipinos push their kids to strive towards jobs that are stable, pay a living wage, give fair benefits, and come with a pension.

Also, military service is thought of as something sensible: lifetime VA benefits and discounts on food via the commissary, pension/retirement for career members, college tuition grants, and in some cases preferential entrance for servicemembers or veterans... versus Chinese or other Asian communities who generally look at military service as being "low class" and have a less-sympathetic viewpoint towards it. Filipinos actually have a very long and colorful history of serving in the US military, so there's also a historical/cultural background for it.

If dad works for the local government in the roads & maintenance department and makes $45k/year, and mom is an auditor in the county burser's officer and makes $40k/year, then you have an $85k/year dual income family. Grandpa served in the Navy for 20 years and gets a full pension plus benefits, and grandma had a union job in a hotel for 30 years so she gets her pension plus benefits as well, so combined, all told, you have over $120k/year coming into the household plus grandma and grandpa watch the kids, so childcare costs are effectively nonexistent. When the kids go off and do their own thing and mom and dad retire with their pensions, the cycle will repeat. Doesn't sound that bad to me...

I've had lots of Filipino friends my whole life and count a couple as my best friends now; IMO Filipinos are, by ethnicity, one of the nicest and most sincere and genuine groups of people I've ever met.

Maybe Filipinos in Philippines are one of the nicest and genuine groups. But Filipino Americans are some of the least likable Asians I have ever met. Probably because they are so culturally ratchet ghetto. Most Filipino American youths would culturally blend right in Detroit for example.

In terms of Asian Americans, I would say Japanese Americans are the ones I have had the most positive experiences with.

but it seems the Filipinos are the most common, I also see a lot of Filipino military officers

Most Filipino American guys culturally act like this guy in the video. Most Filipino American guys have fully assimilated into Black American culture.

Most Filipino Americans do not have a culture of their own to be proud of, so they latch on to Black American culture.

Maybe if Filipino culture was as rich as Chinese culture and Japanese culture, you would not see so many Filipinos who wish they were Black.

That's interesting since historically the military were one of the highest classes in China, Japan and Korea. The samurai, of course, like the knights of old were a notch about the peasantry and often enforced the law of the feudal Lords. It was somewhat later that large scale peasant armies were raised.

The irony is that even though Filipinos emulate Black culture, the Filipino race has never produced their own version of The Beastie Boys, Eminem, Vanilla Ice, and Macklemore.

There is no Filipino rapper who is internationally famous and has millions of dollars in the bank. Filipinos can not turn their love of Black culture into mad money yo.
