I don't know where you live but it's somewhat obvious that you haven't really seen Filipinos in their home country. I don't know, but maybe they are really like that but I can assure you that, the majority of the Filipino population are not like what you think they are. Are you imposing that we Filipinos will be the same wherever we are? Have you thought about the environment they were raised in? We should always ask ourselves these kinds of questions before we discriminate/judge people. Although ultimately we control our actions, it is our environment and other things that influence us greatly. I'm not here to start a war. What you written on your post is probably true and I can't really disagree with what you said since I don't live in the U.S but what I can tell you is the Filipinos do not behave like that at all with 'full access to technology' I come from Dubai, UAE. Pretty famous tourist place with the Palm Islands and the 7-star hotel, The Burj Al Arab. So you could say that the quality of life is quite close to that of the U.S no? The Filipinos there are all hardworking and pretty much the exact opposite of what you have described them. Sure, you might tell me that the culture and the way of the world is different than that of the U.S but that is exactly what I'm trying to point out. It's not just Filipinos, anyone who was raised in different countries would also be just as different. The case here is just that Filipino Americans have been frowned upon and because of that, people tend to make the same opinion of every other Filipino in the world. I don't mind you saying those bunch of Filipino Americans are rude, disgusting,worthless based on your personal experiences but what I do mind is that you lumping the rest of the Filipino nation along with them. True, the Filipinos have yet to actually contribute something to the world but they are people, just like you and me, and they equally have the potential to benefit the world just like any other nation. There's a lot of things I would like to say about the U.S and how they take advantage of the country but I prefer to believe the good in people rather than their bad side. Despite the economic downhill, our past corrupted presidents and our ever growing debt cycle with the world bank. I am proud of my country because I have seen their good side, they are honest, helpful and sincere. Ofcourse not all of them are like that but I want to believe in them. You might scoff at me and call me a fool but if don't believe in them, then who will?
