BBC Insults Filipina Domestic Helpers Video

This was on the news today:

Filipinos in London are set to launch “concerted efforts” against British government-owned British Broadcasting Corp (BBC) for its reportedly “racist and humiliating” portrayal of a Filipina domestic worker, a lawmaker said on Monday.

Batangas Rep. Hermilando Mandanas, head of the subcommittee on the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), said during the plenary debates on the proposed 2009 budget that Philippine Embassy representatives in the United Kingdom were already coordinating with the Filipino community there regarding their protest actions.

Filipina Domestic Helper In The Harry and Paul Show

As a Filipino and knowing many domestic helpers in the country, I believe that this is indeed an insult to them. How dare them portray a Filipina domestic helper like that?

Racist? Insult to the Filipino people? What do you think?
