What will be your reaction when you heard or read an article about racial discrimination? About someone’s nationality, or even worst, your country being insulted?
Are you just gonna sit around and do nothing? Now check this out:
Well, let me first define discrimination. According to Wikipedia.org (an online encyclopedia), discrimination is a sociological term referring to the treatment taken toward or against a person of a certain group in consideration based solely on class or category. Discrimination is the actual behavior towards another group. It involves excluding or restricting members of one group from opportunities that are available to other groups.
How about this so-called Racial Discrimination?
Racial discrimination is treating people differently through a process of social division into categories not necessarily related to races (Wikipedia.org).
I’m pretty sure you’re wondering what’s with this post, well actually, this is about the popular American Comedian and Television Host discriminates against Manny Pacquiao and the Filipinos.
I got these information from yahoo news (much credits to http://www.examiner.com/x-21442-Sacramento-Fight-Sports-Examiner~y2010m4d1-Popular-American-comedian-and-television-host-discriminates-against-Manny-Pacquiao-and-Filipinos, since yahoo got this news from that link).
So here’s the thing:
Are you still going to relax and just chill out when your country, your race is being discriminated by someone?
Well for me, I find his comments absolutely insulting and discriminating. Who do he think he is? And mind you, its my first time to hear his name. Is he that popular? I dont think so. What does this man know about the Filipinos? Did he master the Philippine history? Or just visited my country? What does he meant that Manny Pacquiao is all we’ve got? Well, for his information, there are many Filipinos that obtained degrees higher than his! And lot smarter and respectable than he is. My Advice, click the search engine Mr. Comedian and search the history of my country or better come over here and let’s have a cup of tea (just to know who we really are). One thing is for sure, The Philippines will not tolerate racial slur, prejudice and discrimination of its people.
As what Mr Rick Rockwell concluded:
I find Adam’s comments to be absolutely repulsive. They are racist, degrading, and discriminating at best. It horrifies me that people of this mentality have such a large platform to express their flawed logic and ignorant opinions.I don’t see any humor in how he bashed the Filipino people for supporting Manny. I don’t see any humor in how he discriminated against Manny and en entire country. These comments are disgusting.I would also love to see Adam be held accountable for these comments. A formal apology is necessary on some level. Being a comedian is one thing, but being a racist is another. I can remember when a popular American comedian used the N-word in his stand-up routine and was practically chased out of the building and prosecuted by the media. Where are these people now?
Warning, the following audio of Adam Carolla contains vulgar language and racial comments that might not be suitable for minors.
