Don, I know Jonathan Lorenzo. He studied in the Midwest, he was a student leader connected with MASA Midwest Asian Students Assn composed of students from 5 major universities in IL, IN, MI, OH and I think he graduated from Notre Dame in Indiana. He was active in the NaFFAA Midwest Region until he moved to LA. The word Flip has been used widely by the youth especially in New York where a book of essays by young FilAms was published with the Flip word in the cover, three years ago. I don’t think it is derogatory among the youth I think it is their affectionate way of calling each other that, hence Lorenzo adopted the word for their publication. Jonathan is a librarian at a Fil-Am library in LA. Quite a few older Pinoys have complained against the word, including Dr. Paz Buenaventura Naylor, Professor of Linguistics at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, of course she even objected our calling each other Pinoys . . . oh well. BTW she is a grandniece of Emilio Aguinaldo Ed
