I became inquisitive after I heard the comment that a Hongkong magazine writer generalized Philippines by saying that it's a A Nation of Slaves!We were riding on a taxi on our way to the Davao Doctors Hospital when I heard a flash news about it from the radio attached to the cab.The kids are not feeling well so we decided to have them checked by their pediatrician before their condition get worse. Many Filipinos got mad the moment that it was aired on TV.According to the radio announcer, the Department of Tourism and Office of the President are currently assessing the situation though a public apology was done by the journalist. A columnist name Chip Tsao's comment would also mean that our country is a nation of servants! I DEFINITELY UNDERSTAND it why he had written those words.The fact that thousands of OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) are employed in Hongkong households as housemaids,helper or chambermaids perhaps made him think that way.I somehow consider it.However, it's hard for me to accept the truth that he thinks that WE ARE ALL LIKE THAT! I won't deny the thing that from every corner of the earth, you find a Filipino working for their foreign employers. It's sad to know about this reality in which I'm uncertain if we can still change this setting. The Filipinos are reacting much about it because we have fellows who are world widely respected and honored due to their amazing works and great achievements.I guess Chip Tsao forgot that WE ARE ALSO EDUCATED.Not all Filipinos are maids or the likes. His act was totally a form of disrespect for every Filipino working abroad specially to those who are servants in Hongkong. These are Chip Tsao's exact words in his article:
Manila has just claimed sovereignty over the scattered rocks in the South China Sea called the Spratly Islands.......As a nation of servants, you don't flex your muscles at your master, from whom you earn most of your bread and butter..........YOU CAN SHARE YOUR IDEAS ABOUT THE ISSUE BY LEAVING A COMMENT either negative or positive.Rest assured that I'm open to every opinion.Thank you.
