SAY WHAT?!

I think it becomes apparent in the news that discrimination among Asians, including Filipinos, is still an issue and is still being done. I AM JUST SO PISSED. I just heard on the news that a Filipino boy living in Canada with his parents has been punished by his principal, apparently, for eating the way Filipinos eat. He has been called a pig and been shunned away from his classmates. Well, being a filipino at that, I say, "WHAT THE HELL?!". I mean, why in the first place, would you criticize the way Filipinos eat, and more importantly, why do you have to PUNISH somebody for doing so? Yeah, you are in Canada, but does that mean you have to be and act like a Canadian in the first place? If Canadians have a right to criticize our ways, they shouldn't criticize our heating habits. I could be considered justifiable if they would reprimand us for relieving ourselves infront of the "BAWAL UMIHI DITO" sign, but the way we eat? NO!
Foreigners seem to hate immigrants these days. Those racist chihuahuas seem to think that we're not welcome in their home turf. Why are we vindicated in the first place? Is it because of our height? skin? or probably even our eating habits? Just because we're from a third world country doesn't mean that we have third world ideas. Think about it. Just because you people are white and we're primarily tan doesn't give you a reason to think of us as the uneducated, the uncouth and the unappealing.
You celebrate the chopstick but you puke at the "kamay-kamayan". You actually believe we could eat sinigang with a fork? YOU make me puke.

they think that because they are foreigners, they act all superior among us. but they're not. they're just some fucked up foreigners trying to piss some people off.

and yes, they also make me sick.
