As the news of yesterdays hostage crisis broke my twitter account went crazy and messages come in from people normally not connected with TP. Things like “why you marry a Filipina there when you have women in your own country, I hate foreigns”. Which confused me a bit as the fact they stated “there” I can assume this person lives outside the Philippines so its ok to be an OFW in the UK for example but not for someone to marry someone from the Philippines? Also the fact they themselves are “foreign” as they are in a host country. Bizarre.. We get it from all parts of the globe and the BNP in the UK which you can research online had an invite to a political TV show that had protestors and a lot of aggressive anti-racism people there. But at the same time I was telling people let the guy speak.. Like most racists they don’t make any sense they haven’t thought things through and only literally see things in “black and white”. Not actual context or ability so without a doubt his showing on that TV show pretty much damaged the BNP’s credibility in the UK as they could see this guy was no natural leader and lacked any real political ability except to play the race card.
But what I find fascinating about the Filipino’s that do attack via email generally under pseudo’s is that they are generally living in the US. They are American Filipinos and not the first generation. There are chips on the shoulder but I often wonder if they even understand the problems of the Philippines as many have never even been here. Have they studied historically the Philippines? Do they understand where the average person moving here actually creates jobs and brings investment over plundering? To be honest I doubt it. They are seeing a foreigner and assume we are here for some unknown reason and the Philippines is theirs.. but if that is so why are you still sitting whining in the US? If your educated you can actually benefit the Philippines as it does need skilled people but leave the attitude and racism behind its not needed anywhere on this planet.
As regards me.. being just some foreigner which I can’t understand what you are babbling on about.. The fact is I am self-sufficient I have created jobs here and look to develop the area around me. What have you done for what you call your country? If the world functioned with the racism you have in your bitter heart where do you think 10 million OFW’s would be it wouldn’t be abroad that is for sure. So wake up and try and do something constructive with your life. Your bitterness and hatred was not done by people like me and unlike you I am actually here trying to help.
Finally I would like to say the majority of Filipino’s I know aren’t like this but then again the majority of them are here in the Philippines. Many try hard to make foreigners welcome and although they do feel the frustration of life here they don’t blame us.
