Response to 27 Filipinos Who Make You Proud To Be Pinoy:
Sad excuse of a list. Most of them aren’t even born in the country that desperately wants to own them. “Four job types that make innovation happen: Thinkers, Builders, Improvers and Producers.” Am I right that most in this list falls to none of the above? And where are they good at, entertainment. Much like the stereotype/global connotation to “Filipina,” entertainers, GRO, prostitutes, maid-to-order brides. As if the Filipino race was a centuries old civilization that contributed greatly to the advancement of human knowledge. Hence, the Pinoy pride was conceived, for lacking actual contribution to the human race, clings to whoever gets recognised even if that someone has a tiniest bit of Filipino heritage in them.
