Just sayin'... for someone who keeps telling people they need to lighten up, I was pretty disappointed that you'd suddenly turn around on this here.
1. The incident was obviously a joke. Anyone who took it as anything else should seriously lighten up.
2. MOD said nothing in the post you replied to that "generalized" anything about anyone, with the exception of pointing out that Filipinos "tend to run short", which may be objectively true. You saw things in there that didn't exist. He was describing his workmate, not a whole people.
3. Yes, people do have cultures. Filipinos have a culture as much as Americans do. Races don't have cultures, but then Filipino isn't an actual race to begin with so that's not even a valid comparison.
4. He said nothing about anyone being illiterate, the guy was just making a freaking joke. I thought that you of all people would be able to realize this.
