Agence France Presse (AFP) Still Thinks Filipinos Are Dogs!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Among the many myths and xenophobic comments about Filipinos is that they are dog-eaters, but the Agence France Presse (AFP), the international news agency, thinks worse: that Filipinos are dogs.

Case in point: in a photo caption describing the possible negative effects of El Niño, AFP described as a “Filipino farmer” a dog walking through a drought-ridden field in the Philippines.

What’s worse, The Manila Times, one of the oldest and most respected newspapers in the Philippines, and possibly all of Asia, carried the photo and caption, as if in agreement with AFP!

Let’s give both the AFP and Manila Times a Pulot-sir Award!
