Thank you, Dodong, for your comments. But to be called a Yankee is not an insult. In fact, to become a member of the New York Yankees baseball team means being signed to a multimillion-dollar multi-year contract, aside from huge signing-up fees and bonuses. You mentioned a Red Neck, who is usually giving the racial insult, and not receiving one, as Filipinos do when they are called “Flips.” The use of “Flip” can never be OK because a Filipino-American law-enforcement officer (LEO) can claim racial profiling, discrimination or harassment if other LEOs call him by such a name in the City and County of Los Angeles. So, how come officers of a Filipino-American Library in Los Angeles can call their publication, “The Flip,” and expect Filipinos and Filipino Americans to be happy about it? The First-Amendment rights do not include the use of racially-offensive terms. It is not being onion-skinned to demand respect and bar the use of an insulting moniker or name. Mabuhay, Lolo Bobby M.
