However, if you go to Spain, the Filipinos there are just like the Latin American immigrants. They fit in very well, unlike other immigrant groups like Chinese, Arabs, and Pakistanis, they're all seen as very foreign, Filipinos & Latinos are not
It's true... They fit in right away . And it is because the culture and traditions are similar plus the Filipinos are already so familiar with most of the Spanish words so it doesn't seem like a foreign language to them any more .

^ Yeah, I only spoke to Filipinos in Spanish. I literally saw them everywhere in Madrid and I was going up to them and asking them if they were Filipino and I was right every time. I got tired of asking after awhile because there were so many. But I made a lot of friends that way. And Spain strangely reminded me of the Philippines in many ways. I know it seems completely different, but it had a familiar feel with the architecture, food, and the general attitude of the people.

I asked my relatives in Manila about what Filipinos generally thought of the Spanish and they said that Filipinos dont think about them at all. And Filipinos definitely dont acknowledge that they have any Negrito ancestry.

Um, how many Negritos do you actually see? You talk about them as if you see them all the time. I've only seen 3 Negritos in my whole life. 2 were in the Philippines, and 1 is a friend of my mom who is obviously Negrito, but that's never talked about.

Let's just face the fact that Filipinos will never be accepted by Hispanics, Asians, or Pacific Islanders, so we should just create our own category.

After they killed some of the Mindanaoan fighting to claim their historical land what they think it's their land. Tausug in Sabah, Malaysia.
They used to be Bornean. Which is same race as our Tausug Muslims.
Now, you wanted to join them. They wanted to claim their historical land but Malaysia doesn't want to give so you just want to join so you can stay. Ask the Malaysian if they actually wanted you. If you just read how they reacted to our Tausug muslims when they went to Sabah to claim it.
