i got hate email :(
hi guys i got this email this morning from a friend, what do you think about this.
>Subject: HATE LETTER
>This is a very disturbing open E-mail letter to all
Filipinos around the
>world; specially here in North America!, from a man
who has the power to
>reach million of people. (he's a radio talk host)
>This is an open letter email by Art Bell, a radio
talk show host in Nevada
>(more info in the email itself). Here is yet another
person who has taken
>advantage of his power and privilege to use hateful
words and racial
>stereotypes that breed further ignorance and
intolerance in our society.
>Art Bell is a talk radio host who has two shows that
he broadcasts from his
>home in Nevada, that is rebroadcast by 400 stations
across the country. He's
>written 2 books. He lived in Okinawa, Japan for some
years and had a radio
>program on the English station here. And, though it's
hard to believe after
>reading the following letter from him, he actually
has been to the
>Philippines (he's traveled fairly extensively around
>Check out his website listed at the end to get a
glimpse at this fool who's
>spreading this hateful ignorance. And check his wife
as well. This letter is
>so degrading, I think it's really important that
everybody read this and not
>attack him, but respond to him in a civilized manner
because otherwise his
>thoughts will be reaffirmed. Understand that not
everyone has a viewpoint

who hopefully can be

>Filipinos.....*make me puke*
>As we've all come to notice, in the past few decades,
Filipinos have begun

basis. You can see this

asian? Well we've come

the world known as

hard to associate

cannot count the number of

connect themselves to the

It's a common

believe that they are

ingenuity of Japanese people

"It's a black thang."
>"It's an asian thang." You can see the connection.

successfully in Japan are the

Filipino people no matter

this fact...and it is

Asian. They have no

is in ANY way, asian.
>Thinking of the great countries in Asia such as
Japan, Korea, and China

with the great peoples

technology and this is

over and over again.

They must believe that

Hmm whats the odds Art Bell didn't write that? Hmm lemme think!
Whoever did write it is seriously disturbed without a doubt.Helicopters don't fly; they vibrate so much and make so much noise that the earth rejects them.

If I got that (and was of your decent), I would:
1. Most likely not even open it, but if I did...
2. Read the first five lines (like I did just now).
3. Delete it.

thanks jman01pa for the info.. yeah but some of the part of that hate letters are true.. guess we filipino dont have nothing to offer nice in anyways... this really an eye opener for each and everyone of my fellow filipino people...

Whenever you see this tripe, think to yourself, "Can this be real?", and then visit your friend Google to find out.
Results of a quick search.
Bell did not make a broadcast calling the Philippines "a disgusting and filthy place." A false e-mail recounting his alleged remarks has been circulating online since the 1990s. In 2001 Bell sued the Philippine Daily Inquirer after the newspaper published the e-mail as fact; the Inquirer published a retraction and apologized to Bell.You can't fix stupidity.

That has been around for about 3 years now I believe. Art Bell was really upset about it. His wife is Filipino.
July 27th, 2004, 07:33 AM #16
whoaa i did not know that his wife was a Filipino maybe some guy who really hates our race did that anyway ..... we are what we are in this world we all have same function to live and die ... no matter what color, language etc..
July 27th, 2004, 07:58 AM #17
filipino, start your own e-mail campaign, asking all those who forwarded this lie to e-mail apologies to Art Bell.
July 27th, 2004, 08:00 AM #18
yap, i just did. also i put all the links posted here, that proves Art Bell was Innocent.
July 27th, 2004, 08:02 AM #19
Good job. You've educated a few people and made them a little more skeptical of trash they get in their e-mail.
July 27th, 2004, 09:25 AM #20maybe some guy who really hates our race did that
