I admire the way Filipino people defend their compatriot when they are—sometimes-- put in a lessthan honorable category by other nations. The examples are the outrage when someone stereotypes Filipinos in an unfavorable way.
When in Singapore, someone said that all Filipinos were cleaners or when
in Hong Kong, when a writer said that Filipinos were servants, the
whole worldwide Filipino community reacted in uncontrollable rage.
