Racist Remark Against Filipino Doctors In Desperate Housewives



Desperate Housewives PhilippinesIn the September 30, 2007 episode of Desperate Housewives entitled, “Now You Know”, Susan’s character (Teri Hatcher) was questioning about the credibility of a gynecologist when her doctor told her that she might be hitting menopause. Susan’s reply was, “Ok before we go any further, can I check those diplomas? Cause I would just like to make sure that they're not from some med school in the Philippines."

I honestly have been following this series from Season 1 to 3. It has been a favorite show of mine coz it made me laugh and it’s very entertaining. I was very surprised yesterday that I received an email from my Yahoo groups about this racist remark. Bringing

With that I joined the petition for the apology of ABC and Desperate Housewives to Filipinos. You may also sign the online petition by clicking this link.

i agree. i have always loved the wit in that show, yet this one is just not right.

i wish they get the backlash that they really deserve.
