OK, so I watch The Filipino Channel (TFC) from time to time because my grandma and my dad like to watch it. Most of the time they watch Wowowee and Game KNB. I like watching because it's pretty funny at times, and because it's nice to know that I understand another language other than English.
If you watch these shows, you probably notice that the fricken camera man always points out a white foreigner, or a very pretty lady in the crowd. Most of the time, they pick at least one white guy to play on stage on Wowowee. THEN, they start to ask him such personal questions. The questions always revolve around "So, what are you doing here in the Philippines." Then, the man might answer by saying that he's with his Filipino wife on vacation. Once, I actually heard Willie reply back saying something like "Oh yes, because Filipino women are the best women."
How dare he say that.
Well, I was watching Game KNB the other day, and it's another game show like Wowowee. There was one white guy in the crowd, and like always, the camera man pointed the camera toward his direction. Then, the host Edu Manzano, actually spoke to the man in front of everyone. He said "So, what are you doing here in the Philppines." The white man said, "I'm visiting family." Apparently, Edu didn't hear the man correctly and he said, "Oh, you're looking for a family?"
Then, the white man corrected him.
How dare he say that!
It's like, when a white man is in the Philippines, people automatically assume they are looking for a wife! It's embarrassing. It's not right! I really think these women all over the world should not be looking for a man to petition them out of their home country. These websites promoting mail order brides, are just...NOT RIGHT. For some reason, it seems that so many people support this way of life because these game shows exploit this fact in so many ways, directly and indirectly. I know that the lifestyle in third world countries is hard, but I think there are so many other ways to solve your problems.
