Re: “Catch Me If You Can

This article shows the great weakness of the Filipino culture: faith in blood over merit. I lived in the RPI for several years and had many friends who lived there for decades.

Filipinos are taught to distrust and exploit foreigners who, for the most part, are generous and open to them. All the while they are in turn robbed and exploited by their own people every day!

Any kindness shown by Americans is seen as weakness, yet that is the great strength of America. We give to people who won't bother to say thank you.

So, welcome to America all the Soledads of the world. But, please learn who is here to help you and who is just trying to rip you off. More often than not, it is your own people coming with a smile and a hug.
