    lagi akong nahiya sa aking kayumanggi balat bilang isang filipino

    Filipinos are very diverse. Some are too white, some are dark and some are medium. There arent much "too dark" filipinos. Just brown or white usually. No one is really too dark there. Too dark filipinos are not common thats why they would play a joke on you if you are too dark because too dark there is not common.

    Im here right now because I'm really scared to actually tell my parents I'm dating someone who's black. I'm already brown and i have fairly curly hair because i am only half filipino and half puerto rican. While my mom (full filipina) makes comments a lot against darker skin, my dad (puerto rican) is always making jabbing comments towards other hispanics that I've dated in the past. It's so overwhelming and I'm just so thankful for this discussion, in the video and in the comments of everyone telling their personal experiences.

    You four really represent what Filipinos are. Some would look more white, some more hispanic, some more asian and some more black. Unlike more homogenous Asian countries or racially segregated Anglo countries – Filos are more like latin america where you have all the mix in between.

    LOL!!! This is sooo the SJSU Akabyan group because I see my adings in this XD Love the work and engagement!
    ANTIQUE REPRESENT!!!

    It's so funny because so some level and degree, I feel you can tell where a family's background is from based on the skin color. I've always seen SOME folks of brown and moreno color as people from the Southern Islands and SOME people of light skin of the metro Manila area. Granted of course, I say some because there are some people who just so happen to be of darker skin because of other reasons.

    Much love to you!

    To be fair, Colorism is not only prevalent in Filipino culture, but generally in the Asian culture.

    11:49 is the one of the good reasons Filipinos don't racially discriminate. Yes, Many Filipinos look at the skin and use it to gauge a person, but I'm also certain that Filipinos also look at you as still a Filipino no matter how small a percentage it is and will make you feel as if you are part of their community.

    Oh the guy's from Antique :O

    If you are state side it means your family is probably upper class and cause of island problems – you can help by not influencing islands with state side culture and stopping the return to government of racist spanish casta hacienderos like mar cos, enr ile, est rada.

  12. cuenta pagar says

    state-side, everyone including police flyers, schools, and census teach shame to minority and mixed races, they deny natives, in 1902 they classified islanders as blacks, then spanish, then chinese – never as native austronesians who defeated old master and resisted new master – the thomasites (original peace corps) taught shame for native identity- hence fear of being brown or native – islanders became mixed natives with huge inferiority complex (new colonialism/slavery) – so we ask our state side children to have compassion and stop hating your island siblings because you are free of island slavery but are not subject to state side slavery.

    Its sad that this problem exist all through out Asia.

  14. jupidar_ says

    Really appreciate that ya'll are facilitating this conversation. I love my Filipino culture, the REAL, indigenous, true culture, not the part that has been shaped by colonialism.

    Intresting, especially my Filipina girlfriend is a "white" mestiza from Cebu, she told me she got preferential treatment due to her fair complexion. One time she hot sun burned and she hated it because she said her face looked like a piece of lechon. LOL

    Identity Politics, Political Correctness, Cancel Culture and Snowflakes Liberals starting to bring their Toxic Western Ideologies here in the Philippines.

    ko ay half Filipino and half black. Pinanganak sa pilipinas. At nandito na sa US. I was so discriminated against it has scarred me for like. Imagine an kid getting teased and bullied for my skin and natural hair. I was called TAE growing up. I was deemed less attractive and was not asked by out by men. Mind you I went to private school in manila my whole time I was there in the hope that I would be discriminated against.Its truly sad 😔 . I wanted to stay but needed to leave. Being a female and black I was seen less than seconds class citizen

    I find it okay for skin whitening if people want to be happy. But, if they are doing it to "please" other people's standards and discriminating others is not it.

    Is this even a real thing?

    It is sad because we really don't know our colors. We have to stop identifying with colors. There is no country called "BLACK, WHITE, BROWN, AND/OR YELLOW.

  24. nick chase says

    The discussion is good but the audio needs improvement

    and Im already in 100% volume both in the website and the device
    though this could be like a aphorism for how vocal we are about colorism in Asia particularly in the Philippines

  25. luna key says

    I guess the colonial mindset is clearly present in us. I went through that phase of hating myself because of what I look due to bullying. Im okay now and only I can speak for myself. I taught myself with our roots and it really helped me with acceptance. I think we should go back and start researching about who we are and our roots cuz guys!! we are an amazing bunch.

    I'd suggest kirby Arraullo for more information
