The cheated mentality of Filipinos
Whenever you came across a Filipino and asked him or her why did they lose, they will give a short and simple answer. They cheated us! (Dinaya kami). In a casino or a gambling galore, the loser will run amock while accusing the winner that they cheated him. In a drinking spree, you can hear them saying "Dinadaya mo kami sainuman" The Chinese defeated the Filipino team Gilas in a sports game, and again the Filipinos shouted foul (Dinayaang team namin). When MannyPacquiao lost his fight with Floyd Mayweather, the Filipinos protested that Mayweather cheated Pacquiao. The worst situation is during political election time. The loser will always complain that the winning candidate cheated.
Perhaps the Filipinos are weak people, and they have a "dinaya" mentality as a defense mechanism. I am a Filipino, and I love being a Filipino. However, some Filipino traits became confusing and intolerable for me. I cannot stand the lack of sportsmanship, the absence of acceptance, and the lack of respect for other's ability to win.
Perhaps the Filipinos are losers, but they always want to compete yet they end up defeated. The history of the Filipino people can speak more about the root of this "dinaya" mentality. They cannot free themselves from the tyranny of Spain for three hundred years until the Americans defeated the Spaniards in 1898. The Spaniards left the Philippines to the hands of the Americans. The Americans left then gave the Philippines independence. After all the years that followed the Filipinos cannot forget how the Spaniards cheated them and made them slaves.
I do not blame the Filipinos to look down upon themselves and to feel inferior toward other Europeans. I understand they still feel that the white people intend to cheat them. It was a cruel world after all, and the Filipinos are trying to survive only to find themselves at the losing end. They have to unite as a people. A divided race can never win against any foreign invasion, and they never be free again.
"The Filipino is worth dying for" - Benigno Aquino, Sr.
