Also if you come into contact with the latest communist "sympathizers/agents/immigrants" here in the Philippines. They are now "discussing" that Chinese is not only the Chinese you generally see in Divisoria. They are now teaching with "regularity" that they are a "diversified" nation with multitude of colors. They have fair skin, and have also have brown skin, etc... They even sometimes joke that Koreans and Japanese are more "singkit" than Chinese are.
That 1.5% or so, doesn't count those who chose not to join confederations or family associations. Also they are mainly from people who emigrated on the latter part or after the American era. A lot today, are even denying direct association (for some reason). In many ways, it is a very inaccurate picture of how many are we. In our own originating province alone (far from Manila) we adopted in using the indigenous tribal name as a label for ourselves.Currently, Chinese account for about 1-1.5% of the population. Logically, Chinoys who are half chinese cannot be more than double this figure. Realistically, the vast majority of Chinese marry other Chinese so Chinoys are less than another 3% of the population for a maximum total of people that are at LEAST half Chinese cannot be more than about 4-5%. Metro Manila is not more than about 10 million people with the bullk of 100% Chinese living in Manila. Manila happens to be the highest concentration of Chinese in the Philippines.
That being said, I guess the point is although there are a lot of Filipinos with Chinese ancestry; and what ever is the school-of-thought in determining the number (from 2% to greater than 50%) we are overwhelmingly for our own nation, the Philippines.
don't blame the chines for preventing foreign businesses into your market especially when you continue to vote the same old frogs that protect such policies. if you want change, vote for political candidates that will make those changes. don't blame the chings.
Flips would feel more comfortable being enslaved by white americans than chinese. Its all about skin color for these ignorant Flips. Lets go s()ck the whitey co(ks. Love to su(k off the white man.
A white man from Canada and I were discussing different topics on a bus headed to Angeles City. We came to the topic of the ethnic Chinese. "I noticed that the country looks like **** but the malls and the stores are clean," said the Canadian. It's too bad that the owner of these stores, who occasionally is seen sweeping the floors in some of them can't just run for public office so that they can run the country in the same fashion that they run their sparkling stores and malls," said the Canadian. I agreed with him because here in America successful groups show their appreciation by giving back. The Chinese are fair but firm. The Spaniards dont run either but at least they are the patrons of many charities.
There in a nutshell is the dilemma of the ethnic Chinese. You will never see a Chinese person run for office. Normally, they are mestizos that aren't even half Chinese. To go a bit further, the biggest charities are not operated by ethnic Chinese but rather outfits sponsored by Spaniards, Americans and others. There in another nutshell is the second dilemma of the ethnic Chinese.
By the way, Ted Failon isn't that dark....he has Chinese cheekbones. If I had to guess I would say that he looks like he's Southern Chinese....Northern Chinese look different. Most Chinese in the PHilippines look more like him than Beijingers. Almost all Chinese in the Philippines come from Fujian. Part of my family comes from Amoy and the rest of that Chinese side comes from the villages of Lemehua and a surrounding cluster of about 4 villages. I can tell by the way that I look that some of my Chinese ancestors were from Northern China but had migrated to Fujian. 100% Chinese is not more than about 3% of the population there. CIA stats are pretty accurate.
Filipinos are more americans than they think. They place a higher value on freedom of speech and religion compared to most asian countries.. Ang kulang lang respect sa property rights (wala sana kayong squatter kung bina value ng pinoy ito), and lax enforcement of laws. (putting a sign na bawal tumawid at nakamamatay, is hardly enforcing the law).
parang ang pangit ng premise ng tanong. keber ko ba kung anong lahi yan.
of course my answer would be to be in a country run like heaven regardless kung sino pa man yan
Amnesty International is a global movement of people fighting injustice and promoting human rights.
Amnesty International (commonly known as Amnesty and AI) is a non-governmental organisation focused on human rights with over 3 million members and supporters around the world. The objective of the organisation is "to conduct research and generate action to prevent and end grave abuses of human rights, and to demand justice for those whose rights have been violated."
parang maganda na mapatakbo tayo ng tsekwa na bumubuti ang ekonomiya, sa nakikita ko madidisiplina ang pinoy, mababawasan ang skwater. for sure madami tututol kasi ayaw padisiplina.
basta wala kang nilalabag na batas sigurado na hindi ka sisitahin ng awtoridad.
para sakin i rather be run by any foreign entity as long i am not run by any ******* and corrupt officials like corrupt and incompetent pinoys!
In here we don't have that problem because almost all of our tycoons and oligarchs (Fil-Spa and Fil-Chi) are into big-time charity efforts. In fact they are already following the Bill Gates model of placing a great part of their wealth in foundations. Friendly foreigners (Americans and Japanese) are so good at it that they are now being taken for granted by majority of Filipinos. Americans and Japanese are only remembered now because of Chinese aggression.
The good thing about the Philippines is that foreigners are generally integrated in due time. Almost all of the second generation Chinese immigrants I know will fight for Philippines against Chinese aggression.
Going back to charity the only different thing in this equation are Muslims. Muslims will generally only have charity drives for fellow Muslims.

In the past, the Rockefellers, the Duponts and other families would use foundations to do public service but it was mostly to protect their wealth. Gates and Buffet are using foundations the way that they were meant to be used EXCEPT that they both believe that foundations should be managed as rigorously as a for-profit corporation.
The Philippines is noted for being the one of two or three countries in SouthEast Asia, possibly most of Asia, that is tolerant of foreigners. In Indonesia, a Chinese family can be there for 200 years and still remain 100% Chinese. Also, the mestizos are the ones that are more participative in the country's life and institutions.
In order for Muslims as a group to improve its public image, it must start giving to others in need, not simply other Muslims in need. True charity after all is blind to the identity of the recipient. Otherwise, it would simply be CONDITIONAL charity which is not charity at all.
Still, and I really don't like to admit it but it is necessary, the biggest charity in the world is the Catholic Church. Though I am anti-religious in terms of institution it is important here to note that the model of charity used here is a valid one.
