The average Filipino is deluded by this colonial mentality which make them think that whites are superior and the natives are inferior by virtue of their skin colour.The more you keep thinking like this the more backward you will remain
i am glad that the filipinos are fun, outgoing, speak English, super friendly, and open minded.

I live in Korea and the Philippines is like night and day. I would rather hangout with Filipinos any day of the week over a typical xenophobic, shallow, vain, and materialistic Korean.

But keep in mind the Muslims & Arabs were conquerors & colonizers too! People seem to forget that!

Also Filipinos were the very first ones in South East Asia to be educated as Madre Espana built the first university in Asia in the 16th century.

If not for them, we would not be Catholics.
I seriously hope you're just being sarcastic and joking

I think it's rather unfortunate that the Philippines, at least as illustrated on this forum, seems to have the same issues and obsessions with race and post-colonial mentality that Latin American nations seem to suffer from that is absent in eastern Asia. What a nice legacy the West left behind for the Philippines, it's pretty sad.

Filipinos on here are desperately clinging to part of their whiteness in the same manner that mestizos do in Latin America. They are ashamed of being part and are desperate to show the world (the European world, that is) "Look! We're not all brown savages here! Look at our mixed race inhabitants!". It's that post-colonial mentality that the West, but especially Portugal and Spain, inflicted upon their colonies that the British and, seemingly, Dutch, have not done as much. Coincidence that most of this mentality comes from countries that were colonized by Spain and Portugal?

^I always go with Philippine Independence (1898), People, Culture and us as a Nation which are now known as Filipino Nationals.. Indigenous, Rural & Urban Catholics, Muslim, Lumad etc. it's either you belong to Majority or Minority.

Filipinos are only Asian by geographic location. Everything else about them is a blend of Spanish and American traits. It is why Pinoys are vastly different from other Asians. Thank God for that! Philippines is a little piece of Heaven in the Asian peninsula.

It's not an obsession. It just appears like that because we are not like Latin America. We are geographically situated in Asia and what used to be the language is no longer spoken except in one place in the country so people who do not have any clue about our country, history and culture always have to insist about our identity and so we always have to defend and justify.
Being the only one in Asia that has a different religion and culture makes us feel displaced, probably like Israel in the middle east.
If Puerto Rico was in Asia and Spanish is no longer spoken too, and other Asians would deny your history and culture, how would you feel Unbrainwashed ? You said your ethnicity is white right ? So what if they also insist on your ethnicity lumping you together with everyone else.
It is hard because of geography and loosing the language that once played an important role in our country. We do not on the same issues as Latin America because they or even you do not have to always defend and justify your identity and culture.
