Tagalog, Cebuano, Ilocano, Waray-Waray, Tausug, Hiligaynon, and more. The fact that these languages have survived and are still widely spoken should be celebrated. These language are your true roots.
These languages are already spoken at home.
If English is a major subject in schools, I do not see any reason why Spanish shouldn't be, afterall, the status of English in the Philippines used to be the status of Spanish 80 years ago. There is also Latin America and Spain where Filipinos can work. The US and the UK are so tough on emigration, not everyone can go there.

Not everyone just have indigenous roots.

They teach that the indigenous are the only real Filipinos instead of teaching everyone regarding their nationality that is why there are Filipinos who are experiencing identity crisis or identifying their culture and their own fellow Filipinos arguing who are the real Filipinos.

I think there's reasonable argument for how those are not equivalent.

Really like how reasonable ?

Is it reasonable to say not at all because majority look Asian ? Or because The Philippines is in Asia ? What people do not know about Hispanicness is, it is not about race, it is a culture.

The school hymn in my school is also in Spanish, we sing it everytime we have a gathering in school like Flag Ceremony.

No, it's in how people are defining what Hispanic is. If you set up the construct as a binary where you can only be in or out rather than as quantifiable property, then I can understand why someone would say that.

Yea, I understand that. If your conception of it is basically binary, then basically you wouldn't vote for the middle option at all--just all or nothing.
