It never is exclusive to just Pinoys.
It happens to everyone. The degree of discrimination varies from a simple smirk to employment denial.
clawed_out, date tayo.
That's why Pinoy's should be very careful about accusing other nationalities and or races about being racist. I honestly think numero-uno tayo sa pag-discriminate and I think much of it is because of our history. It will take a conscious effort for one to set aside his biases as he grows older.
As long as discrimination is BASED ON MERIT, it's all good. It is dumb to treat everyone equally.
N!ggers will turn anything into a racial issue when their backs are against the wall. Heck thanks to a race card, OJ simpson got off the hook for murder. You arrest them for petty crimes, they say its racism. You complain that they cuss to much, they say its racism. You fire them for consistently being late for work, they say its racism. You ask them if they accept credit cards they say its racism.
What you people need to understand is that many of us proudly live up to the negative stereotypes given to our respective ethnicity. In the case of n!ggers, they proudly shout to the world that they are thugs, low lives, savages, and drug addicts. If you listen to 50 cent or gangsta rap, it has nothing on it but endless verses how “gangsta” it is to drop school, join local gangs, be a thug, kill people, and most of all consistently smoke weed and crack everyday. Then if you bring this up to them, they say you are simply being racist.
Sa mga pinoy naman, eto yung pinaka-notable. Naalala ko yung mangilan ngilang seasons ng PBB. Kapag me isang house mate na nakitang di nag-flush ng inidoro, o kaya di marunong gumamit ng toilet paper yun at yun na lang ang magiging recurring theme ng show for an entire week. Not only is it in the show itself but it will also be in the 6 o clock news, in the newspaper, radio, and everywhere else. It will be the talk of the town for months, like its something na nakakatuwa. Then when some Hollywood personality pokes fun about pinoys having a poor toilet habbit we cry foul and discrimination.
Nowadays, discrimination exists everywhere. It's not just based on the color of the skin, unlike the old days. Now it's broader, race, gender, preference, personal hygiene, religion/beliefs, social status.
I believe that discrimination will not stop not unless we truly RESPECT each other's individuality.
i think hindi naman maiiwasang mag-box ng tao, it gives us a level of comfort - kahit papano appearances count, titles matter at some point
when i was staying overseas, i steered clear of the pinoy community except for a few folk (na hindi ko rin madalas kitain ha) dahil sa nag iingat ako base sa mga nababasa at naririnig kong horror stories
^ that's the problem with a lot of people.
Just because they give respect, they expect to be respected.
Something is wrong with that.
^^ It's what you call civil-coexistence.
I believe that discrimination exists because of being self-righteous. Madali tumingin ng mali ng iba at flaws or imperfection ng iba, pero yung mga flaws, o mali nya hindi nakikita.
Lahat dyan nag-uugat. Kung parati ka tama at mali ang iba sa pananaw mo, then, discriminating ka na. I guess if people will learn how to be civil about other's beliefs and individuality and know when not to cross the boundaries then I guess walang discrimination.
That's another way to look at it.
Acknowledging other people and being civil with it.
Isa pang halimbawa, 2 gay Pinoy guys can call each other "bakla" pero pag hindi gay ang tumawag, insulto ang term na yun.
Re: blacks. Naalala ko lang nagkaisyu some months back dito (north Texas) when a black city councilor accused a white guy of racism because the white guy referred to the mess the council was encountering as a "black hole". Bakit daw tinawag na black at hindi white
7000 islands, 100s of dialects, different religous beliefs on top of the mestizo, chinoy, and malay features... be glad and be proud that your country with all these varying cultures never went into ethnic cleansing mode.
sa pinas, i think its always about the social status.
and also religous beliefs.
in my work before, i saw the application of employment of contstruction workers denied for the reason of them just being muslims.
kahit na kumpleto sa requirements at merong sapat na work experience, hindi pa din sila tinanggap.
It is not discrimination (in general), but it is sharing the common values, customs and beliefs.
