Filipinos Have a better Embassy

Well, not exactly, not the building for sure, but they do have a diplomatic delegation who actually cares for their benefits.

The Philippines ambassador to the US condemned former D.C. mayor Marion Barry's offensive remarks on Filipino nurses in hospital the capital area. Marion Barry, a Democratic party member, said in a public hearing that 'If you go to the hospital now, you'll find a number of immigrants who are nurses, particularly from the Philippines'. He went on to urge the University to train more 'black' nurses. The National Federation of Filipino American Association also blasted Barry's remarks as 'racist' and 'bigoted'.

A few days ago, Barry called to drive Chinese stores out of D.C., and replace them with black shops. The Chinese ambassador ordered the entire embassy and local Chinese leaders to hold their breath and not making a sound. Barry is a frequent of the Chinese embassy in D.C., and is referred to as an 'old friend' of Chinese people.
