Gloria Diaz Comment on Cebuanos

What did you just say Gloria Diaz? Miss Universe 1969, Gloria Diaz, was asked about having an interpreter for the Philippines bet to international beauty pageants. She cited an example, saying a "Cebuana can hardly speak English or Tagalog"...what?

Cebuanos should be angry with this!

It's true we Cebuanas sometimes abhor speaking Tagalog, but come on, Ms. Diaz, it's so "major major" of you to say we can hardly speak English. So you want me to say, "What's with these beauty queens? Don't they think before they speak?" Now, that will be generalizing.

She's so full of it! I am a Cebuana who came to America just 5 years ago...but when I talk to non Filipinos (Americans or Hispanics), they would all have the first impression that I was born here and when I tell them that I just came to this country 5 years ago, they find it hard to believe because they say that I speak English well and with hardly any accent at all! And by the way, those Tagalogs that I meet also thought the same way about me being born and raised here, but always gives the reason: 'Eh kasi bisaya ka, kaya magaling kang mag ingles kahit di ka lumaki dito...', when I tell them that they are mistaken...So, please Ms. Diaz watch what you say...

it's not rightful for you to generalize the Cebuanos! one of the most important things you have to take note when you join beauty pageants is to think before you speak. you could have thought deeply before you've spilled that comment that Cebuanos hardly speak English. i so look up into you before coz you've won that Miss Universe tilt but it's disgusting for you to say such line. and i'm pretty sure there's a lot of Cebuanos out there who speaks much, much better than you do. watch your tongue please...

I have just lost what modicum respect I have for beauty queens & I have you to thank for that Ms. Gloria Diaz. Yes, you managed to bring glory to the country when you were crowned Ms. Universe, but to use the Cebuana to prove your point as someone who speaks bad English is inexcusable. We might not be fluent Tagalog speakers but we know our English. The Janina San Miguel & the Venus Raj are not from Cebu hence their English is atrocious.

Being a Cebuano, I still say that we still have room for improvement in terms of the English language. Not everyone is comfortable in communicating their thoughts & ideas in a language that is not our own. But to say that we Cebuanos can hardly speak English is a gross generalization.

Yes Ms. Diaz, Venus did think in Tagalog & speak in English. This is possible and is natural to non-native speakers of English i.e. Filipinos. It was a case of transliteration. What it was not is grace under pressure.

Cebuanos don't speak English with a Manileno accent and don't adulterate the English language with TagLish.

If you come to think of it, the bisaya's neutral accent and profound pronunciation of each syllable is the dialect's strongest point why Cebunaos can speak "better english"

I think it's Gloria needs a brain interpreter. I won't generalize though that Tagalogs needs brain transplants. I know a lot of Tagalogs confused Visayans with Cebuanos. Filipino civilization started in Cebu before Manila even started wearing clothes. Cebuanos is known for fluency in English compared to all regions in the Philippines. What a dumb idiot!

WE DON'T SPEAK ENGLISH THAT WELL?

WE DON'T SAY TRIANGLE AS "TRIANGEL," SPEAK AS "SPIK," TABLE AS "TABEL"

HAHA!
Even as a CebuanA, I don't bring down people from other regions. I don't bring down people from ARMM or CAR.
If you've been to Cebu, then stop saying those bullshit.
Even when I go to Manila and when I get tongue-tied in speaking Tagalog, I tend to speak in English. And they're amazed.

SO SHUT THE FUCK UP. IF I WAS TALL ENOUGH, I WOULD'VE BEEN A BETTER BEAUTY QUEEN, one that won't bring down HER COUNTRYWOMEN.

patay si Gloria Diaz.. suko nuon mga Cebuano niya... Think of it Gloria, people from visayas and mindanao speaks / can speak Cebuano. Your insulting not just the Cebuano people but also us here in Mindanao. You get us mad!....

*****************************************************

Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama said that if the intention of the former Miss Universe was to insult Cebuanos, it should not be taken for granted.He added that Cebuanos know how to speak and deliver English well if asked in English.

Rama cautioned Diaz that she should be “very careful if she is trying to mock us.”

“I don’t know how she comes up with an idea why she is saying it in that manner,” Rama added.

*****************************************************

Valeriano ‘Chicoy’ Tomol, manager of Cebuana beauty queens Anna Maris Igpit and Karla Bautista, labeled Diaz statement as a “major” blunder against the Cebuanos.

Bautista was Binibining Pilipinas-World in 2004 and Queen of Asia-Oceania.Igpit was Bb. Pilipinas World in 2006.

“In my 30 years of existence, I never, not in my wildest dreams, expected a ‘major, major’ blunder from an aging and obviously out of touch beauty queen. Unless of course if Ms. Diaz had been living under a rock for years and just emerged recently to blurt out that short sighted comment,” Tomol said.

Igpit, in her Facebook account, said that Cebuanos are “very good in English.

“I have so much respect for Gloria Diaz because I look up to her a lot. Maybe she is just misinterpreted by most. But I can’t help but react and defend the Cebuanos most especially that we’re globally commended for our English,” Igpit added.

****************************************************

Gloria Diaz is banned to travel Cebu. Hongkong ra ba diay kamao... GloriA, be careful every time you meet a Cebuano...

“Is there a prohibition? I’ve always thought contestants were allowed to speak in their native tongue for as long as an interpreter or translator could be provided.

If the contestant is a Cebuana, she could always choose to speak in Cebuano.”—-Governor Gwen Garcia

“If she needs to insult us that should not be taken for granted. I don’t know why we need an interpreter. We can answer the question if it is asked in Tagalog and we know how to speak it and we can also deliver an answer if it is asked in English.

She should be very careful if she is trying to mock us and be apologetic in such a front. I don’t know how she comes up with an idea why she is saying in that manner.”—Cebu Mayor Michael Rama

“In my 30something years of existence, I never, not in my wildest dreams, expected a major major blunder from an aging and obviously out of touch beauty queen. Unless of course if Ms. Diaz had been living under a rock for years and just emerged recently to blurt out that short sighted comment. Just wondering, has she ever been to our island paradise?.”—Chicoy Tomol, manager nila ni Anna Maris Igpit ug Karla Bautista

This is one sad truth about our country. Instead of being happy and supportive of Ms. Raj about her success in the pageant, some people like Ms. Diaz are harsh about what went wrong. So what?? That was her answer. And as far as I know, that was the hardest question in the pageant. Even the former president of the US, G. Bush, answered almost the same thought as Venus'. Who wants to broadcast ones mistake on a worldwide television? Give her a break.. she at the top five for crying out loud!
That comment about the cebuanas is uncalled for and unacceptable! It's even out of the context. Venus is from Bicol region but why is she making a slur comment on us, cebuanos? Or is it because she so dumb that she doesnt know the native language of the bicolanos and that's is why she used us as an example? I can't believe that there are still prejudice and ignorant people back home like Gloria Diaz.
FYI, Cebu is the 3rd best island in Asia according to Travel+Leisure(a new york based magazine).So, we have the most tourists in the country. And we can hardly speak English??? I don't think so. I think we are more fluent and have better English accent than anywhere else in the country.

"Oh! uh, just the same things i do. I think if he has been on the moon for so long, I think when he comes over he wants to change, I guess"..

it so happened that all the judges at that time were so fun of horror movies and caricatures, so a miss universe pretender was proclaimed. i was so confused why a woman with a caricature figure could win the miss universe crown. and with regards to her english, well, the pronunciation was so sticky that we believed that she was high on amphitamines.

This is such a big insult to us Cebuanos, I clearly abhor those comments. I just moved here in the U.S. and was in a gathering. The father in law of a fellow filipino from manila told me that if he was talking to me on the phone he would think that Im an American because of the way I speak english and then proceeded on saying that her daughter in law dont even know how to speak english and cant understand her at all..so Gloria your kababayan from Manila is here in the U.S. with and cant speak english...compared to Cebuanos who are the best english speaking sector in the Philippines..and Im not making that up..its according to surveys..

This resolution is unnecessary;otherwise, lousy and lame. It is discrediting to us. Filipinos are known for their english skills. It is a concern nowadays, because our english is degrading instead of upgrading. Rather than tolerating and worsening the situation, it is best to just train them for their english comprehension and skills before we send them to these pageants. A 3 month or a semester of training will do. Just like the call centers we have in the Philippines,they have their trainings. We must bear in mind that these women are representing our country,heritage,culture, & etc. There is a must in emphasizing our intellect to everyone, and english skills are one of them since it is considered a universal language. If not, at least they are ought to be savvy enough that they can speak english well. As I've. said, this is degrading the integrity of the our pageantry body; instead of upgrading or improving it.

Try learning Bisaya aron magkasinabot ta.Kami sige lang mi ug sabot ninyo...I think it's about time nga kamo na pod ang mosabot namo!

Gloria Diaz is senile, which is probably why she made that remark. She must feel some insecurities about being old, that's why she puts herself above Cebuanos and above present Filipino beauty queen winners.

News Flash Diaz: You're old, you're losing your mind, and you're out.

And about your remark about Cebuanos (and honestly, I don't think you can even understand this statement since it's in English), we'll have you know we have the most numbers of call centers in the Philippines and Koreans flock to Cebu just so they can learn English.

REAL LIFE SAMPLE: If you contact PLDT's call center in Manila, they all speak in tagalog. When you speak to them in English, they can barely keep up. I wonder what that says about your supposedly superior Filipino class?

I'm a proud Cebuano. Ms. Gloria Diaz, do listen to yourself first before you pass judgment on us Cebuanos. Clearly you think so little of us. Remember Gloria, English is not our first language but we Cebuanos are globally commended for our fluency in speaking and writing in English. I have worked in North Africa, Europe and now I'm in North America... do you think I could move about in different continents if my English sucks? You made the biggest mistake by mocking us Cebuanos.

We are not fluent in Tagalog, we do not know that dialect, and we do not speak it. Tagalog is not our mother tongue. American English is not our first language either. That is why we are culturally and RACIALLY different. That is why we are not Filipinos. We are Cebuanos, meaning we speak and write the Cebuano language. Cebuano Language, and not Cebuano dialect for it is not a dialect, is our native tongue and we should be proud of our language. And we Cebuano-speaking peoples are not Filipinos. Only those damned Tagalogs are Filipinos since they speak and write that Tagalog-based Filipino language (if it is indeed a language). And we should be proud that we are not Filipinos because there is nothing to be proud of being Filipinos.

Filipinos are servants in foreign lands and a Tagalog from Bulacan pioneered the export of domestic helpers, a fact even those Filipinos refuse to embrace. Those Tagalogs (and mind you, many Tagalogs can't even speak perfect Tagalog, Jesus Christ!) look down on and are indifferent to Cebuano language speakers, labeling them as second class citizens. Well, they do not like us Cebuano speakers. Is it a crime to be a Cebuano, to be a Visayan? And is it a grievous sin be a non-Filipino? I am not a Filipino because I am not a Tagalog. I am a Cebuano language speaker and I am proud to be non-Filipino. I do not want to be identified with Filipinos lest I would be filipinoed (meaning robbed).

They hate us but they continue to visit or vacation in Cebuano-speaking places. Well, this is because they believe the Cebuano-speaking places are part of their beloved Philippines. That is incorrect. Visayas and Christian Mindanao (Moro Mindanao is a different entity) are not, have never been and will never be part of the Philippines. These regions have been illegally occupied by the Republic of the Philippines, which comprises only Luzon and Palawan. Visayas and Christian Mindanao are not part of the Philippines. Cebuano language is not part of the Philippines. Cebuano speakers are not part of that poor country called the Philippines. We are different. We are not Filipinos. We should be happy and we should smile because we are not Filipinos.

Cebuano speakers can speak and understand English and there are many who are fluent in that language taught by the Americans. I speak Tagalog but with a surprisingly distinct foreign accent and I admit I am not fluent in that Tagalog dialect. I speak English with a different accent, which is neither Cebuano nor Filipino. And I am not proficient in English. I speak the Cebuano language with pride and dignity and I am proud of my language. But a Tagalog from Cavite who claims to be fluent in Tagalog but is overheard saying "So, ang ginagawa ko ay laging mag-pray kay God" is not a Tagalog. Ambot lang unsa na siya. Di man kabawo mag tinagawg Tagawag man kono. Tonto!

As for Gloria Diaz, I doubt if she can speak Tagalog without using such English words as "well, actually, so, and you know."

We are not fluent in Tagalog, we do not know that dialect, and we do not speak it. Tagalog is not our mother tongue. American English is not our first language either. That is why we are culturally and RACIALLY different. That is why we are not Filipinos. We are Cebuanos, meaning we speak and write the Cebuano language. Cebuano Language, and not Cebuano dialect for it is not a dialect, is our native tongue and we should be proud of our language. And we Cebuano-speaking peoples are not Filipinos. Only those damned Tagalogs are Filipinos since they speak and write that Tagalog-based Filipino language (if it is indeed a language). And we should be proud that we are not Filipinos because there is nothing to be proud of being Filipinos.

I am not bias just because i'm Cebuano but no offense, we easily learn and sound like a Native Speaker. In my assessment as a Call Center Professional when I transfer calls to an extension, it's obvious that some calls are routed to Manila because of the strong accent. However, we shouldn't be racist in the first place because no race is superior after all, it's supposed to be equal.
