AMERICAN TOURIST. An American tourist from Virginia was in Cebu recently for a vacation with his Filipina wife. They travelled to different places in Central Visayas. He told his Filipino friends that the Philippines is truly a beautiful country. But he said that one negative thing he saw was that foreigners are exploiting the Filipinos.
FOREIGN EXPLOITATION. He said that what he saw in Negros Oriental, Bohol and Cebu were foreigners who own businesses and not the Filipinos. “These foreigners are exploiting the Philippines and exploiting the Filipinos. You should own the businesses, not these foreigners.” The Filipinos who were with him could only shrug in response.
