SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA — An anti-Filipino racist rant in the Southern California city of Playa Vista gets caught on video.
Former MTV VJ and model Belinda Panelo was out getting coffee when a woman began questioning what race she was.
Panelo then recorded this racist rant.
In the video, Panelo can be heard calmly telling the unidentified woman that she bought coffee.
Panelo, whose son was with her at the time of the rant, told BA that she and her son are doing fine after the incident, adding that as Filipinos, we should not change minds by reacting with the same hate that is spewed at us.
She says that we can do is be active in our communities, participate in civic society, and educate ourselves.
