The sad truth is, despite HUNDREDS OF YEARS of history in the Philippines, it’s the unwelcoming actions like this that makes us Chinoys feel like we STILL don’t belong here [crying emoji],” Richard wrote in his tweet.

Apparently, this received negative reactions from other netizens. Richard said that he appreciates the expressing of opinions and he acknowledges that he has privileges but he pointed out that there are Chinoys who are not as privileged as him.

I hear yall and I’m sorry for using the wrong words. I acknowledge that Im one of the few privileged but its a fact that many Chinoys who spent most their lives here sometimes feel that they dont truly belong. Eg my WWII vet grandpa who til this day still gets called intsik beho,” he wrote in his follow-up tweet.

For him, it was a healthy discussion that netizens express their thoughts regarding this matter. Richard Juan said that he wanted to end this discussion with a point he wants to stress and leave to the people.

Just because some Chinoys may not have Filipino blood does not mean we are not Pinoy; Chinoys are Pinoys,” the model-host said.
