I love this look! I have a hard time imagining wearing a sweater in the Philippines (girl is dedicated to fashion), but there you go.

"The net worth of the average black household in the United States is $6,314, compared with $110,500 for the average white household, according to 2011 census data. The gap has worsened in the last decade, and the United States now has a greater wealth gap by race than South Africa did during apartheid. (Whites in America on average own almost 18 times as much as blacks; in South Africa in 1970, the ratio was about 15 times.)"

It’s Tagalog not Filipino my fucking ass!!!! The national languange of the Philippines is Filipino!! Tagalog is a DIALECT. not the fucking language!

How can Tagalog be a dialect of a language that was invented in under 100 years? There was no Filipino language until fairly recently, its a modern concept. So how can a language like Tagalog or any other language in the Philippines like Waray, Kapampangan, Cebuano, Ilocano, etc. that have been here for hundreds of years prior to the Spaniards be a mere dialect of a language that was invented in the mid 1900’s? The Filipino language is Tagalog at its core because it simply is just a standardized version of Tagalog with very little input from the many other languages in the Philippines. It would be one thing if there was input and development of the language by incorporating the other languages like its suppose to but there hasn’t been a change in it and no one has bothered to develop the language past the basis of Tagalog.

Filipino at its present state with no input and development from the other languages is a dialect of Tagalog. Period. Kapampangan, Ilocano, Cebuano, Waray, Hiligaynon, Bicolano, Tausug, etc. are not dialects of Filipino nor are they dialects of Tagalog as if a native speaker of Kapampangan spoke in their own language to someone who speaks Tagalog or a Bisayan language like Hiligaynon that person would not understand what that person is saying and vice versa. These languages are languages not dialects for the simple fact that they are not mutually intelligible with one another. If one speaker can understand the other then yes its a dialect. But when the day comes that someone who natively speaks Tagalog will understand someone natively speaking Cebuano or Ilocano, etc. then it has developed into dialects but seeing as that isn’t the case and hasn’t been for hundreds of years they are separate languages and not dialects of a Filipino language that was invented within the last 50 years or so.

This would be like saying English and German, both Germanic languages along with Swedish, Dutch, etc., are dialects when they clearly aren’t.
