I was browsing online for pictures I could use for a project about Traditional and Modern Filipinos, and of course my dear friend Google was always ready to help me out. I was even aiming to find a particular photo that will depict the joy, warmth and prestige that will come to mind when one thinks of the word- FILIPINO. But to my demise, the power of technology slapped the reality right into my face.
Go to Google.com and search the keyword
and you'll see what I mean.
My sister recently discovered somebody on Youtube under the username FilipinoUnggoy, a Filipino hater (as in somebody who abhors Filipinos in general) who posted his angst and disdain online. He (I'm assuming its a he), uploaded videos and blogged about why he hated the Filipino so much. When my sister told me about it, my initial response was, "Maybe he's a professional online heckler. People today do get paid just to say crap online about other people."
But after I read his words, I could say yes he hates us. He does. He really does.
And I don't blame him. Most of the things he described are really happening in the Filipino Society right now.
"Sad but True", I quote James Hetfield.
What I saw today on my quest to present a simple school project led me to serendipity. Not expecting it at all.
Okay, Maybe I still want to be a Filipino though...how about you?
Back to work.
