As I published the photographs of Filipino women on different philosophical pages, there were those who responded negligently to my job, arguing that shared photos should be classified as "mixed Asians" and not from Filipino women.
I am writing this article to clarify my position on this issue.
I think the images of "real" or pure philosophers are Malay origin – their oil-stained skin, the smooth-brown or black hair, the lack of height – the incorrect and inaccurate representation of reality.
Philipines are ethnic (and usually all Filipinos) that are constantly evolving. And I think it's changing much faster than our neighbors in the Southeast Asian region, such as Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand.
Why is this so? The Philippines has a long history of engaging with other nations and ethnic groups.
Even before the Spanish colonists, in 1521, Filipinos formed a trade relationship with the Chinese and Arabs. The arrival of Magellan started the Spanish 300-year rule from the 16th century to the 19th century. During the Spanish era there were short periods of time when the country was overthrown by the British and Dutch.
The Treaty of Paris opened its doors for almost half a century of direct American colonization (between 1900 and 1940). World War II spanned nearly half a decade of Japanese aggression (between 1940 and 1945).
The post-war era opened the Philippine economy to all Western capitals (predominantly Americans), which led some nationalist historians to the country as a "half-assembly".
Philippine Workers looking for a global diaspora abroad – from the 1970s – continue to develop the ethnic variations of younger generations of Filipinos
Currently, there are estimates of 10 million Filipino overseas contract workers. Because of the low incomes and the lack of employment opportunities, labor migration is one of the most important sources of income (through transfer to their families) to a large part of the population.
Money transfers from migrant workers are the country's most important economic momentum, which keeps supplying the dollar for the import-dependent, export-oriented economy. But this is another story.
Let's go back to our topic. The migration of the Filipinos and the influence of the foreign powers on Hungary (and the interruption of their time) have forever changed the Filipino ethnicity. They can be classified into the following category:
1. Glaze (with Caucasian Blood) Characteristic of fairly light-brown skin, sharp nose and normal rounded eyes. In the box world, the costumes include Anne Curtis (half-Australian) actresses, Marian Rivera and Coleen Garcia (semi-Spanish), Rhian Ramos and Bea Alonzo (semi-British), and Misa Campo (half Dutch). ] 2. Chinitas (Chinese Blood) The Philippines has a long history of trade relations with China, dating back to the pre-Spanish era. The chinitis is characterized by straight hair, white skin and oblique eyes. Among them, the actress, the Heart Evangelist
. Japinays (Japanese Blood) A good example of this is the Natalie Hayashi model.
4. Morenas (Dark-Skinned) There are pinayas (a slang for a Filipino girl) mixed with other ethnicities but retaining their natural olive oil such as the radio key and the Karen Bordador model the celebrity supporting Angel Locsin.
Thanks to the influence of TV and films, due to the concept of Western Beauty, I am not convinced that "beauty is only skin deep" . I think inner beauty is more important. When choosing your partner or friend, your philosophy, attitude, and other people, especially those with fewer lives and more pain and suffering, are the most important.
