Colonial Mentality

Whoever said that we’ve shed our colonial mentality is stupid. We haven’t. Too many of us still run around trying our best to be good little Americans. Some of us try to distinguish themselves from the mass of American wannabes and try their darndest to be … Spaniards. Hah!

But really, wanting to be like these foreign types is not a problem. What burns me up is when Filipinos totally ignore ideas coming from a Filipino only to ooh and ahh at the same idea when a white guy says it. No one wants race to be an issue but the correlation is so blindingly obvious that I’d be a chump not to call it out.

What’s even worse than that is when the bosses start talking about the foreigners as though they were godsent. Motherfuckers haven’t even brought a single idea to the table that isn’t already on file as a proposal from one of us Filipinos.

So fuck you.

Fuck you very very much.
