I mean I continue to see Southeast Asian inferiority complexes on many other internet fora and it has to do with economic development.  If history were different, and the Philippines became the first developed country in Asia, which then pulled other Southeast Asian countries along, do you think Aseans would see themselves differently?

If you look at the rich in VN, they are very snobby.  They are pretty much segregated from the poor people.  Rich kids don't play with poor kids.  They tend to behave like royalty even though they just make $30k/year.

If the situation is mainly economic, why are Filipinos in America having inferiority complexes when they interact with other Asians?  Like where did all these Filipinos claiming 25% Castillian and 10% Basque and 8% Mexican get their ideas from?

Vietnamese only making $110K in America and they already bragging when this income is not even middle class in most parts of coastal America.

Admitting one's weaknesses is different than arrogance at least we conform ourselves to the truth after all humility is the mother of wisdom.

There's such a thing as having the correct ideals but whether or not implementing them so that they remain as ideals and not as compensation is quite another thing.  For example knights of the old were meant to have honor and noble ideals so that they protect the reputation of their houses but often times they may just end up taking their sword against someone who insulted their wife or something petty.  That's how you tell the difference between someone who is truly noble and someone who is truly not.  ;)

I think it has to do with the facts that even in the Philippines all the pretty rich has been Chinese.  So even when Pinoys immigrate to America and become successful, they always consider their own ethnic group as inferior to the Chinese.

The future Vietnamese American president knows Little Saigon well.  He went there as a kid for banh xeo and hu tieu.  Check out his memoirs coming out in 20 years.  Phondamentals: From Pho to Power and Little Saigon President depict his journey from a skinny kid to a famous entrepreneur and eventually president coming to a kindle near you.


bTW, Pinoys used to be big Republican supporters.  Now, they think they are Hispanic and want state sanctioned abortions.  Sad fall of a great people.

I think the Philippines would have a more positive impact on Asia if they were the first to industrialize instead of Japan. The Japanese see the rest of Asia as cash cows.  The Philippines would be more charitable as a powerful economic power.

I dont see filipinos acting chickeny, just in a joking way or when someone else insults them. They arent like chinese or other east asians with their superior complex. Chinese insult everybody around them and piss people off. Japanese and korean have superiority complex, but i think japanese are a bit tamer. Most filipinos i've met were cool.
