Funny how we Filipinos reacted to the Chip Tsao article.
If we think about it, there are times when we act just like we are no different than him. When we insult people, sometimes it is way below the belt. But when it’s the other way around and we are the ones being insulted, we get so enraged that we almost want to hurt the person/s who insulted us.
I am not siding Chip Tsao because in the first place, what he did was very unacceptable. I’m just trying to be fair. As a Filipino, I completely disagree with everything he mentioned in his article. I was very angry with what he wrote.
But for the record, this is not the first time we got very insulted with comments coming from foreigners. As a matter of fact, it is a growing list. What did we do about it? Protest? C’mon, we could do better than that. There are a lot of options. Just not the violent ones.
(Edit: A reader commented that the article was somewhat a way of us getting bullied by stronger nations. In a way, I’d agree with you sir. As Eminem’s song says, Words are weapons.
The magazine where the article was published emphasized that it was a satire. Which all of us definitely disagree with. Well, because it was more than that. The whole article was full of insults.)
My message to the readers:
Bash me if you want but I am only telling the truth. And as the saying goes, the truth hurts. A lot. Peace.
Pintasero din tayo katulad niya. Sumobra nga lang siya. Sagad sa buto yung kanya eh. Pagyurak na sa pagkatao.
Sagutin ninyo nga ako, ano ang tawag natin sa mga taga-Africa? Negro di ba? And tamang tawag sa kanila ay Aprikano o kaya naman ay African. Racist remark yung salitang negro. Ano ang tawag natin sa mga Chinese? Intsik di ba? Eh parang second class chinese yata ang ibig sabihin nun. Ang tamang tawag sa kanila ay Tsino o Chinese. Racist remark ulit yung salitang intsik. Mag-babanggit pa ba ako ng iba? Guilty tayo. Hindi ba’t tama ako?
