Do we have a hard shell, walk sideways, pinch people? We, are a hard working community who take pride in our families, both here in Ketchikan, as well as family elsewhere. We, like most people, would do just about anything to provide for our families. Even if that means we must work a multitude of jobs.
I am all for free speech. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. But the letter about Filipinos and their "Crab Mentality" has completely and utterly confused me.
The reference to James Bondish style of "Live or Let Die" and the Ningas Cogon has thrown me for a loop. It is never a good thing to generalize one race.
I invite you all to take a closer look at those Filipinos who are "Crab like", and see for yourself that we are just like everyone else in good ol' Ketchikan.
Many of us are in involved in making Ketchikan a safe and better place to live.
So in conclusion, Filipinos are secured in Ketchikan! AND Ketchikan is secured with Filipinos!!!!!
