This is clearly a racist statement, a derogatory remark and an irresponsible one. Little did Mr. Cheap know that parts of the Spratly Islands were already claimed by our Filipino ancestors long before his mama were even born. Little did Mr. Cheap know that we Pinoys are behind Uncle SAM when we flex our muscles on the Spratly's. But that is not the issue here. It's about Mr. Cheap's demeaning remarks against our Overseas Contract Workers and an insult to the Philippines as a whole.

A resolution strongly condemning the "demeaning" Hong Kong magazine article that called the Philippines a "nation pf servants" has been filed at the Senate.
Senate Resolution 955, initiated by Majority Floor Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri, also urged the Department of Foreign Affairs to lodge a diplomatic protest against the publication and for the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency to look into the working conditions of the Filipino workers in Hong Kong.
"Any patriotic Chinese man should not be giving derogatory remarks against any nationality, including Filipinos in particular," Zubiri said in a statement.
Besides, the senator noted that China's economy was built on the remittances of the overseas contract workers and from the Chinatowns all over the world.
"The 21st century should be an era of tolerance and diplomacy. Gone are the days that we threaten each other by military might. Globalization is the byword. So if this writer feels that the OFWs of Hong Kong should all be kicked out, then there shoud be reciprocity by banning all Chinese-made products in the Philippines," Zubiri said.
He also challenged the writer, Chip Tsao, and other Chinese nationals of his kind to look into their past and see that there was no shame in being OFWs.
"He should do his tesearch and he might find that his ancestors were OCWs as well," said Zubiri.
