The Harsh Truth #12: Colonial Mentality

Okay, just a funny thing. If you do not speak in English all the time, most people will assume that you can’t speak that language at all and that you are indeed stupid. Surprisingly, some Filipinos think that way. For me, that mentality’s the most stupid thing ever.

But if you’re a Filipino living in the Philippines and you can’t speak Tagalog, and I say that you’re stupid, almost everyone will throw rocks at me and tell me that I am stupid for even saying that. No wonder why foreigners laugh at this country, it’s because of its own citizens who do not love their very own language. Sad.

The Harsh Truth #10: Refusing to Acknowledge the Truth is Not an Excuse for Being Ignorant

I’m not mean or heartless. I’m simply just stating the simple harsh truths that I have observed in life.
