    Default Teri Hatcher of Desperate Housewives insults Filipinos

    I heard through the "Umagang Kay Ganda" about a remark made on an episode of "Despirate Housewives". The scene entailed Teri Hatcher's character(Susan) at a hospital, being told by her gynecologist that she might be hitting menopause. Susan replied, "Can i just check those diplomas because I just want to make sure that they are not from some medical school in the Philippines"

    This type of derogatory remark is not only unnecessary and hurtful, but is also unfounded considering the presence of Filipinos and Filipino-Americans in the health care industry. Filipinos are the second largest immigrant population in United States with many entering the U.S. and passing their U.S. licensing boards as doctors, nurses, and medical technicians.In fact, the Philippines produces more U.S. nurses than any other country in the world.

    As Filipino, we need to band together to ensure that this type of hateful message is not allowed to continue on our television and radio waves.

    e put... puti rin ang doktor na tinutukoy niya! bakit tingnan nya kung dito sa pinas grumadweyt?!

    sige, idagdag na natin ang mga cast/producer of Desperate Housewives (in tagalog - MATRONAs) sa mga nagsabi ng derogatory racial remark laban sa atin.

    Default Teri Hatcher of Desperate Housewives insults Filipinos

    In the Premiere of Desperate Housewives Teri Hatcher made a remark about Filipinos - doctors/nurses. She was talking to her doctor and then she said "Okay, before we go any further, can I check those diplomas? 'Coz I would just like to make sure they are not from some med school in the Philippines."

    Dear Kababayan and Allies:

    I heard through the grapevine about a remark made on an episode of " Desperate Housewives" last night. The scene entailed Teri Hatcher's character (Susan) at a hospital, being told by her gynecologist that she might be hitting menopause. Susan replied, "Can I just check those diplomas because I just want to make sure that they are not from some med school in the Philippines." If you go to abc.com, you watch the full episode and witness the scene at about 18:50 minutes into the episode.

    This type of derogatory remark is not only unnecessary and hurtful, but is also unfounded, considering the presence of Filipinos and Filipino Americans in the health care industry. Filipinos are the second largest immigrant population in the United States, with many entering the U.S. and passing their U.S. licensing boards as doctors, nurses, and medical technicians. In fact, the Philippines produces more U.S. nurses than any other country in the world. So, to belittle the education, experience, or value of Filipino Americans in health care is disrespectful and plain and simply ignorant.

    As Filipino Americans, we need to band together to ensure that this type of hateful message is not allowed to continue on our television and radio airwaves. Given the recent amounts of media attention that has been given to Michael Richards (against African Americans), Isaiah Washington (against gays), and Rosie O'Donnell (against Asian/ Chinese Americans), it is ridiculous that this type of hateful speech made it through various screenwriters, the show's producers, the show's actors, and ABC itself. Yet, this isn't the first time that negative remarks have been made about the Philippines or Filipinos in the past. In recent years, we've heard one too many "dogeater" comments by "comedian" Joan Rivers on the red carpet or in her standup act, and I believe that it is about time that we stand up for ourselves, so that this type of hateful speech never happens again.

    Please join me in expressing your concern, disappointment, and/or disgust to the producers of ABC.com. You can sign the petition at http://www.petition online.com/ FilABC/ or you can reach them directly at [email protected].

    And please feel free to forward this widely to other Filipinos/Filipino Americans/ Asian Americans/ and other allies.

    Sincerely,

    Kevin Nadal,
    Filipino Performance Artist/ Activist

    her remark was not appropriate pero kasi kilala ang mga pinoy din sa paggawa ng iba't ibang klase ng mga FAKE DIPLOMAS which is we cannot determine the difference between authentic and fake...

    un lang po intindi ko sa remark ng episode na un...
