I’m sure many people on Tumblr notice this, but it’s sad to see many Filipinos let their race define who they are. Or to use their race as a means of pride.
“Filipinos got swag. Filipinos deserve to be recognized.” What about other races though (no, not doe)?
Most Filipino parents have had to suck up their pride and pull in their efforts (i.e Navy, nursing) to get to the United Statesjust so they can provide you a better opportunity that they never had.And you repay them by misrepresenting your culture by thinking you’re better than others because you’re Filipino?
I could care less about the trends that most Fil-Am’s succumb to (graphic tees, snapbacks, choero). Yes, Tumblr Filipinos, Swagapinos, Illipinos, be proud of your race. Respect your culture. I’m sure many people annoyed at Filipinos can agree with this, but just to put it into words, don’t use the fact that you’re Filipino as a means to think you’re better than others who aren’t Filipino. Don’t use it to define yourself.
Your character is what defines you. Not your race.
YES. FUCKING YES. this is why i get so annoyed with people of my race. they place their noses all high and mighty, and i’m not saying i hate my culture, just how kids my age portray themselves. im filipino, but i dont go around with the flag in my ass, prancing around like the nyan cat. there’s a fine line between pride and arrogance, just saying.
whoever made this post, I salute to you.
AmotherfckingMEN. Gotta love dat nyan cat reference!
