      Seriously people, ka simpleng congratulatory message, pinapalaki nyo. Bakit, tingin nyo porket mayamang asiano, di nakaka-experience ng discrimination sa ibang bansa? Kailangan ba laging dirt poor kawawang orphan ang magwagi to make a statement?

    3. Ang thingking ng mga pinoy eh kasalanan ng mayaman na naging mayaman at kasalanan ng mahirap na naging mahirap. Ang tatay ko was born not privileged. He studied in UP, work in Divisoria and now a self made rich man who owns a big company. So sinisi ba nya ang mundo dahil pinanganak syang hindi mayaman? Ngayon na we, his family, eh nakikinabang sa pinaghirapan ng tatay namen eh kaslanan namen yun? Kahit mayaman ang tatay ko eh nagtatrabaho din kameng magkakalatod. Like my sister who loves designer bags, hindi sya nagpapabili sa tatay namen. She buys all the luxurious stuff that she wants galing sa pinagpaguran nyang trabaho.

  3. You know what, I was born and raised middle class but minsan nasasabihan na elitist by people like these netizens. Why, because I always call out people who feel entitled just because they were born poor. Yes there is entitlement in poverty esp in the Philippines. "mahirap ako kaya ibigay niyo ito, deserve ko ito". I always here that.. Also people who are angry at people who were born privileged?! Seriously, unless those people are dicks and entitled, then let them be. If kayo din pinanganak na mayaman you will definitely take advantage of what wealth can do to better your lives. As long as these privileged people are self aware naman, then there's nothing wrong with using the wealth to their betterment.

    1. Thank you! Was about to say something similar. People using poverty as an excuse for getting 'more'.

    2. Anon 1:30 you definitely said it best. Yes, there are wealthy individuals who feel entitled but there are also poor people who feel that rich people and the government owe them something. And yes may mga mayayaman na nagdidiscriminate, pero aminin natin may mga mahihirap na tao din who discriminate rich people and judge them just because they are rich.

    5. I agree with you. Madami pa sila lalo na ung mga nagsa-smart-shaming, sasabihin, "Ikaw na". Hindi ba puwedeng we all aim to be much much more educated? Andaming puwedeng matututunan sa araw araw but we choose to ignore. We watch too much TV, puro teleserye. Ni hindi na nga nagbabasa mga tao. Papano ka aasenso kung hindi mo iieducate ang sarili mo. Napaka-emotional pati ng mga Pinoy.

    6. ganyan dito sa Pinas. ang mahihirap entitled. kasalanan ba ng ibang tao mahirap kayo? tapos yun mga naghirap na parents for their children, ginu guilt trip ng ibang tao. sa totoo lang kaya ndi talaga umaasenso Pinas dahil sa victim mentality

    8. Ang cry ng mga mahihirap dito e "mahirap na kami wag niyo naman kaming pahirapan pa." At hindi yan yung mga nagparami ng mga anak ha Dahil walang saysay maglament mga yun! Yan yung mga magsasaka at mga nagcoconstrue at mga nangingisda lang! Like yung rice tariff parusa sa mga magsasaka yun! Yung mga mangingisda na sila humuhuli ng mga ilalagay sa de lata pero sila hirap maafford yung mga de lata! Entitlement na pinagsasabi niyo?! Yung sa Kidapawan natuyot mga tanim nila pero nung nagrally sila, sila binomba ng tubig imbis na yung mga taniman nila!

    9. 8:54 Read: Entitlement mentality of the poor. Yes, you read it correctly. Yes, here in the Philippines. No they are not komunista (and anong connect, may pagka st*pid logic lang). Are you just slow, or are you one of those with entitlement mentality? I will explain. Entitled in the sense that they feel they are entitled to receive help from people who are financially more stable than them. They feel that people around them are obliged to help them just because they are poor. Gets mo na ba?? Or do I have to SAY it again?? I am not 1:30.

    10. 412 initindihin nyo nman kasi minsan dyan sa atin sa dami mg sakuna kada taon, mas maraming mahirap ang naapektuhan kaya minsan naiisip mo rin, sana nman kaming mahihirap tulungan nyo nman MAKABANGON. Yes, araw na araw na tulong kaylangan namin, gusto lang nman namin umangat sa buhay kahit kunti at tulungan nyo Kami MINSAN. Hindi nman kayo inoobliga. Sabi nga ni 411. Gaya ko rin, pamilya ko binigyan ko ng pangkabuhayan sana, pero anong ginawa ng ibang tao? Iniscam lang, eh di wla rin. Mayayaman na nga, sakim pa. Tamaan sana kayo ng kidlat.

  5. Ano ba istorya nung Parasite? And pagnag-aral ba sa ibang bansa like UK o USA e mas better ang education mo or pag sa Ateneo o La Salle compare sa mga Olivarez College? Pano kaya ieexplain yung sa Amerika ginagawa ang dollar and yet bakit me utang sila na nasa 16trillion plus na? Kanino sila nagkautang? And bakit need yung govt spending imbis na saving? Pagnaintindihan o naexplain niyo yan malalaman niyo na ang dahilan ng paghihirap ng buong mundo.

  6. Kids who are born in wealthy families shouldn't be guilt tripped about it. Hindi naman nila pinili ipanganak na may magulang na mayayaman. But what they do with those 'priveleges' is what matters. Will they choose to be shallow and live in their own bubble or will they consciously make efforts to go out there para mabuksan mga mata nila sa nangyayari outside their world. In all fairness to Frankie, young as she is, nakikita ko she's trying. That commenter too who said "saksakin ko tatay mo eh", no matter how much you hate her dad, wag naman sana pagsalitaan yung mga anak ng ganyan. He's a father before he is a politician. Respetuhin din sana feelings nung mga anak.

  7. As much as I admire this type of discussions, mej natatakot ako dun sa part na mas mauuna pa nyang sasaksakin sarili nya. I'm in my mid-20s pero pakiramdam ko lola na ako kasi as far as I remember, mga elementary and high school days ako humuhugot ng ganyan, but not to the point na may ganyan pa akong sasabihin. Masyadong niro-romanticize ng mga kabataan ngayon 'yung term na privilege, etc. and 'yung iba nade-depress na or nagiging bitter sa mundo. Or naglalagi na lang sa socmed, reklamo nang reklamo tapos di naman maayos mga sarili nila.

    3. 8:08 I've read it, context and all. I get that. I guess I prefer to face things by separating my emotions from the matter at hand so I could look at it more objectively. Being emotional didn't work for me. I didn't say pa-emo, I just said masyadong naro-romanticize.

  8. Erm. I dunno but I was born and raised in a western country and nope hindi kami na nagpaka whitewashed to fit in but we never experienced bullying because we are asian. To think hindi din kami from an elite family like Frankie’s family. Ewan pero parang ang pa-woke nya

    1. If di ka tinamaan then the message is not for you. Simple as that.
      The kid is using her social media to stir nationalism for the young ones. There were other privileged kids that does nothing but flaunt their wealth and kayabangan. People should focus on the message and not the messenger.

    2. Agree! Iyong iba kasi may victim mentality.

      Wala rin ako at pamilya ko na naka-experience ng bullying or racism dahil Asian kami. We work to achieve our goals. Nag-aral ng mabuti at masipag sa trabaho kaya narating namin kung ano ang meron kami. Hindi kami naghihintay lang ng grasya at puro angal lang.

    6. Well, if people are born or raised in a western country I really am not certain if whitewashing even applies to them, correct me if I'm wrong. Fil-americans, fil-canadians, fil-europeans, etc., are not just filipino, they're of another culture/nationality as well. Weird na tawaging americanized ang isang fil-am for example, because they're also american. They're not adapting western culture and erasing their filipino heritage, western culture is part of their day to day experience and it's not whitewashing if they identify with that culture because they were born or raised into it. Maybe inaccurate ang pagkakaintindi ko ng definition ng whitewashing, but I feel like filipino local schools that teach mostly english over regional filipino languages and tagalog ang mas pwedeng i-consider na whitewashed...and kids like frankie who grew up studying in the ph and can't even speak any of the ph languages fluently ang mas applicable ang term na whitewashed. Although I may also be wrong, filipino english can definitely be distinguished sa american or british at iba pang variations ng english, so maybe we're at a point na we actually made that language our own? Ewan.

    7. Good for you kung wala kang na-experience. Doesn't mean that it doesn't exists. Iilan lang ba sa western corporate ang Asian CEO? At iilan ang foreign films at directors na nanalo dyan sa Hollywood awards?

      Join na lang tayo sa pag-celebrate, at sa totoo lang, wala namang kinalaman ang pagiging mayaman ni Frankie sa award.

      Delete
    8. 1:42 and 2:43, you are lucky to have not experienced bullying and discrimination. but you cannot speak for all the asians who are born and raised in the western countries. yoy can tell your stories, but it remains a fact that majority of other kids are bot as lucky as you are.

      Delete
    9. Good for both of you! Pero maraming story dyan about racial discrimination. Parang yung expression sa ibang bansa na "such a stalker, just like your Filipina maid". Let's not pretend it's nonexistent.

    10. 1:42 and 2:43 just because you didn't experience it, doesn't mean it does not exist and that people who say it does just have "victim mentality". Hindi nga kayo na bully di rin kayo nag develop ng empathy.

    11. Your story is not everyone's story.

    12. 5:15, walang ads sa TV at sa movies na Asian sa US? Ano ba ang pinapanood mo?

      8:53, karamihan ng Asians ay masaya na sa trabaho nila. Hindi maraming Asians sa western countries na ang goal ay maging CEO or magkaroon ng leadership role. Karamihan ay masaya na kapag umuwi mg bahay ay bahay na talaga. Ayaw ng iniisip pa rin ang trabaho na katulad ng mga CEO at nasa leadership roles na 24 hours on call sila at palaging trabaho ang iniisip kahit sa bahay na.

      Delete
  9. Para daw sa Asians na thinking they have to whitewash themselves...

    Totoo ang sinabi noong isang commenter na yet, sa New York siya nag-aaral. Totoo din ang sagot niya na para magkaroon siya ng growth kapag hindi siya sa Pilipinas nag-aral.

    Pero puwede naman siyang mag-aral sa ibang countries sa Asia like South Korea or Japan pero pinili niya ang New York o America na white people ang nag-develop ng bansa para maging kung ano na ito ngayon unlike noong araw.

  14. Whitewashing? Thin line. The way she speaks and dresses can be considered whitewashed by some. But it is what it is. Heavily influenced by America. Same with Korea..to a degree. But it's not right to bully people for their family background and privilege. So long as they are self-aware and don't abuse it. The culture and gap in the Philippines encourages elitism. It's actually a wake up call to live overseas. Too much judgement. Live and let live.

  18. That pusitnamasungit handle is right. If you want your ideas to be taken seriously then you should not lump "Asians" into one group, especially na may history ng erasure, oppression, and colonization (and which still goes on btw, as if they're attempting to replace western influences sa southeast asian countries) ang mga east asians sa mga southeast asians, aka dark/jungle asians in their book, or even mexican if you're filipino lol. Moreover, we often forget this but asia is a pretty big and diverse continent, some of my classmates from uzbekistan consider themselves as asians. Asians as a group and that whole "yellow" thing is a western concept that they attributed to us because they're obssessed with categorizing race.

  19. I was bothered by one of the people who replied saying that capitalism is evil...ito ang problema sa mga bata ngayon, madaling ma-brainwash sa school na socialism ang sagot sa kahirapan at yong mga mayayamang negosyante na umamenso dahil nagsikap ay masasama. I am studying here in the US and mostly mga colleges/universities dito ay liberal at pro-socialism. Don't tell me Frankie pag-uwi mo dito sa Pinas isa ka na sa mga sisigaw sa kalsada ng "makibaka." Here's the thing: life is what you make it. What you put into it is what you get out of it. Kung tamad at puro asa ka lang sa gobyerno, wala talagang mangyayari sayo.

    Porke may kumukontra hindi na pwede kasi “smart” si Frankie at “hindi nya kasalanan na privileged” sya? Alam nyo minsan kailangan din ng mga advantaged na tao na makarinig ng ibang opinyon para hindi sila nakakulong sa bubble nila

  25. First off, do these people even know what whitewashing means?

    Second, she does not need to apologize for what she was born into and have no control over.

    At least she’s willing to work and learn compared to other privileged kids!

    It’s not easy to live in a foreign country by yourself, especially NYC which is a melting pot of different races. Take into consideration pa she is someone who is used to having a maid etc and now she’s there alone having to fend for herself, do her laundry, etc etc

    Geez people! Of all girls pa talaga ha.

    Case in point, si Dominique Cojuangco. Lives in San Francisco in a big house with a yaya pa rin! And also does not even bring awareness to the plights of the masses unlike Frankie.
