o yung mga noypi na nasa merka - kung proud na proud kayo sa pinas - umuwi kayo sa pinas at doon kayo manirahan - tingnatin hanggang saan aabot yang pride nyo
Roughly translated it goes something like this...
Hey all you Filipinos in America who keep crowing about being "proud to be Pinoy", why don't y'all go back to the Philippines and try living there. Let's see how far this "pride" will get you...
Indeed, the question with regard to this "pride" in being "Filipino" is under any circumstance subject to this simple counter-challenge:
Pride in what exactly?
For me, real and sustainable pride is one that is substantiated by real achievement.
So in the context of Manny Pacquiao, Charice Pempengco, and our dear President Noynoy Aquino who happens to be in the U.S. as I write this, perhaps ask yourselves:
Are you proud of them? Or are you proud because of them?
The earlier can at least remotely make sense. But the latter is a real head scratcher.
How does the individual achievement of a Filipino rub off on the rest of his/her compatriots by virtue of mere shared ethnicity?
There is no sense in that notion and therefore nothing in it that can substantiate pride asserted on those bases.
