Youre entitled to your opinion, this is mine and no pinai, no matter how many copyrighted videos you post, i wont agree with you. We are asian.
Hispanic | Define Hispanic at Dictionary.com
Who are saying that we are not Asian. We are Asian in the sense of geographic location. Culturally, I am not blind to see the culture of the Filipinos. It is mixed culture. Muslim, Animist and Christian or Catholics and the origin of these cultures which is part of the Filipinos.

Rondalla and Bandurria is not from Asia as far as I know which is part of Filipino music instrument
which I usually hear in Filipino folk songs.

they are both in the same situation being colonized by Spain for over 300 years but on different sides of the globe
I'm glad someone finally realised this and made an intelligent conclusion. You just explained it very well mr. bolo. Btw, your name sounds Spanish, are you latin american ?

However, if you were to ask Filipinos which cultures are similar to them, they'd probably name some Hispanic countries along with Malaysians, Indonesians, and other Southeast Asians. Filipinos don't deny Hispanic culture or heritage, it's just that the term "Hispanic" is just unheard of.
as long as they don't start saying they are NOT Asian..
Oh wait pinai just did
how sad that some filipinos are ashamed to be asian..

There is NO ASIAN RACE too. The forum is free for everyone, to express their own opinion so you posted your opinion then so do I. I don't care if you are proud to be Asian, even if you don't grow up in Asia or in the Philippines.

Pinai said we are not Asian ? Where is that ? I don't think she's dumb to say that because she knows very well Filipinos are Asians because of geography but with hispanic influence... In short Asian Hispanics.

Filipinos are not ashamed to be Asian because they cannot deny that Philippines is located in Asia but they are also recognising their culture and I don't think there is something wrong with that. Asian is just a word used to group people from Asia. It is not a race.

Why not ???? Same history and shared culture... Just so happened that Philippines is in Asia. Do you also know the shared history and culture between Mexico and Philippines ? Philippines was governed by Mexico for 250 years.

I grew up around many Filipinos and my cousin is Married to one. From what I have seen, Filipinos relate more to other Asians than to Hispanics. I am Mexican and my Filipino friends like hanging out in Asian areas where there are boba shops and Asian cafes. Alot of them, even though they are from areas with a large Mexican population, do not frequent Mexican restaurants or food places very often. In most of my jobs, they don't hang out with Hispanics in a 'we are the same' type of way.

I consider Filipinos Asian.
