    I do know Filipino's can be very rude and I sympathise with the lady, but she has a self inflicted problem, do something about it girl and then go again with confidence

    In Phils and especially in the provinces a black person is treated a bit different and it's always in a bad way.Hell even in Iligan City if kids mis behave the parents say the black lady from the mountain will come and get you if you are bad.Its a shame I know. I get pointed at and stared at in the province.Ok I don't get called names but it's always an uneasy feeling no matter how many times I go there.just brush it off and move on.

    Robbie..Sorry to hear about that.. The weird thing is that I really dont believe they think they are doing anything wrong..
    I watched two girls greet each other the other day...Obviously hadn't seen each other for a long time...One said "Wow!! Look how fat you got"!! "You used to be so pretty".. lol
    Then there was the famous London bus driver 'Josh' (black guy) who was a bit of a hero over here after swapping jobs and becoming close friends with a Filipino Jeep driver..
    They put him on Wowowee and another similar Filipino afternoon TV show with a huge standing ovation... One Filipino there asked him a question and referred to him as the "N" word!! OMG..Cringe worthy moment or what,but I had the feeling he had no idea that the "N" word" was insulting at all..
    I hope I`m not wrong..

    Yep you are right there Fred, on one of my trips out there with the family ,
    The younger kids mentioned that word N and it was like nothing to them, but when you said you dont call them that name it made it worst for a while it was why cant we call him N,
    No harm was ment from them

    Wifey calls them by the name mentioned and never thinks it's offensive, having said that I think Negro or Coloured is far nicer than calling them Black. It's only since I've been using this Forum that I discovered Coloured is not the word to use, don't any members think "the coloured gentleman at No23" is far nicer than using the word Black

    When i was younger and your dad calling these and any other person who was not white names , well it was the norm in those days even on TV too,
    But it was my mum who raised her voice and told us it was wrong, so we soon learnt that the person at number 23 was Mr and Mrs Smith just like us Mr and Mrs Woolley living at 35, and in those days you did know everyone in street by name too

    What do people expect when black American actors call themselves the 'N' word in movies to get a laugh....

    Me too.

    I remember getting laughed at by guys at the bus station in Mandaue, in Paranaque, and by a whole bunch of trike drivers in Bolinao. It didn't bother me though neither do people staring out of interest.

    Only twice have I got wound up and felt like doing something but these guys were giving out a lairy look.

    Heck, ... even yet, I can [still] vividly recall the sheer trauma of moving from Glasgow to a small rural Perthshire community. Having to "prove my mettle" at age eight, in order to fit into an "alien" [to me] environment - where it seemed families had been related to one another for centuries.

    Harlene thinks its acceptable to use the N word to describe a black person. Well she did until I told her you simply can't in most places outside of Philippines as it is very racist, she replied, but they are! I think she understands now. But if you have been bought up in the middle of nowhere and probably only seen black people on films then to a certain degree it's understandable.

    She needs to man up. If you go to a different part of the world, expect a different culture.

    Harsh.

    She was called more than the N word and to be fair most people would be insulted by that level of abuse coming from a random stranger.

    And you never get laughed at or called names when you go to the Philippines
    It happens everywhere, just because she is black does not make her special in the name calling, us whites suffer the same too, but we don't bitch about it do we.

    The man in the video is correct with what he says, how do we know what is racist? It never bothered me being called Mr Bean when I lived in Philippines, I think racism is a big fuss over nothing because it's so trivial really!

    I've been laughed at and stared at but never been called names.

    According to her she was called a fat ugly N - or words to that effect. Three insults rolled into one and because of this idiot it looks bad on Filipino's in general.

    25 seconds in and he makes a howler by calling her African American when she clearly states in her vid she's from England.

    So, like Michael, you have never been pigeon holed by having 'hey Joe' shouted at you?? or Mr Bean? ok not harsh, but if I was lilly livered and limp wristed I might have cried, specially when they stare are me. I have also had insults hurled at both me and my wife because I was a foreigner, with comments about the status of my foreskin!!
    As for the woman being called 'fat and ugly' I imagine that is quite subjective. For her I think it comes from the way you conduct yourself and your attitude. Maybe she deserved the calling. The 'N' word is, from my experience used a lot in the Philippines depending on skin colour, BUT it in my experience not used as a derogatory term. Many people in the rural areas would have no idea of the global 'PC' brigade and how everyone is so offended by the N word.

    I think she is trying to say the philippines is a beautiful country if it wasnt for the people I have heard pinays in London call black people monkeys to be honest,they arent the most PC of people



    Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again. But life goes on.
    The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the passion that she shows to the outside world.
