I think many are refugees or children of refugees and come from poorer backgrounds and hence live in more ghetto areas, being influenced by that sort of culture and lifestyle.

You should watch a film called "The Debut". The ghetto wannabe Black Filipinos in that film refer to any Filipino who does not act as Black as a coconut.

The ghetto Filipinos look down on any Filipinos who have White friends. The ghetto Filipinos seem to have a real hatred for White people.

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.

Why does it seem like you have so much hatred for Filipinos ?

He is Filipino ! Filipino is a nationality not ethnicity. There are Filipinos of Spanish ancestry but is still considered Filipino. Besides, he is still half Filipino so there is a Filipino who got famous internationally.
He is always in the Philippines and still considers it his home.

Well, a lot of what drives people to emigrate from other countries to the US is money, as opposed to nationalism. Especially nowadays, with the US' fractured sense of patriotism... a family who emigrated from China so that they could start a business, make money to send back home, and push their kids to excel in school so they could become doctors, lawyers, businesspeople, etc are more likely to look at the military as a job for lower or working class people to get a leg up while putting their lives at risk - even if they think that serving in the military is honorable and commendable, it's not something they want their kids to do.

Again, with Filipinos, there's more of a cultural background for it - same goes for the Vietnamese, as many Vietnamese immigrants post-Vietnam were South Vietnamese soldiers and their families who served with the US military in Vietnam and had a more positive view of them.
