The curious case of Jordan Clarkson

Jun 1 | By Perplexed | Views: 367 | Comments: 13
For those of you who don't know Jordan Clarkson is an nba player with the la lakers. I became aware of him when my wifes uncle pointed at him on the screen and proudly proclaimed that he was a filipino, straight away i was skeptical due to his physical size so i did some research he is a 1/4 filipino and born and raised in florida (but he does for some reason have filipino citzenship in addition to being american) yet thecway filipinos carry on about him you would think hes from the slums of manila and has fought his way up to the nba !

This made me recall an event a few years ago, my wife was watching some nonsense filipino tv amd they were having some nominees for pinoy of the year or such b.s anyway of the 10 candidates only one was based in the Philippines and they were a group of attractive early twenty somethings (probably from rich families) who went around tropical locations and callèd themselves 'environmentalists' the rest were all ofws or part filipinos from the USA. 


Has anyone else noticed this, that pinoys will claim anyone abroad they can amd pump it for all its worth? I have asked some filipinos about it and even they admit that it is embarrassing.


Oh and by the way there has never been a filipino born player in the nba.

It jumps to another level when they start rolling out the Bullshit that the Fluorescent Light Bulb was invented by a Filipino called Flores!

The name is Agapito Flores, as they claim.

Oh man, check out their "Sources".

When they found out that Stephen Curry has Filipino blood in his DNA heritage, it took a matter of seconds for Dutetards to make THIS professional photoshop, during the very early segments of 2016 Election Campaign.

Well, not exactly all the time, pulubi. Let's just say we just need our own. No need of imports. Although most of the Flips were suckered into affordable, substandard stuff, few managed to find quality ones. XD

..........BUT, they are masters of creative journalism, as what I have shared A LOT of these "news" & "facts" in this place.

Bhead I have to disagree with your post about c"creative journalism". During marcos regime the media was censored. After Marcos (pre internet) journalism was grade school quality. After internet they started looking at the west since its accesible using internet thats when they started copying the western style journalism. Everything you see now is not from their creativity but creative copying. LOL So the pignoy are really good in copying its in their blood since birth .

There was a case of an American basketball player getting a filipino passport. They were playing a big asian tournament and the south koreans cried foul because he was not a filipi o citisen for 2 years???? His citisenship was passed by the senate in record time, becos this basketball!!! There is a limit of 50 filipino passports handed out to white eyes in one year. Unless of course if younare an indonesian wanting to go to the Haj, then hundreds of passports can be given out!!!!There was a case of an American basketball player getting a filipino passport.
