Igorot ka, magtanim ka na lang ng palay!!

I was reading an online sports article about the Philippine Basketball Association when I noticed a rather nasty exchange of words between two individuals in the comments section. Apparently one is an Igorot, the other is not. The words they threw at each other were as follows:

Let us just forget the cause of the exchange and focus on the non-Igorot's idea of what an Igorot is. It's yet again a manifestation of how twisted and ignorant the impressions of other people are about who we are.

It seems like we are still a very long way from erasing that image of a man who knows nothing but plant rice and climb trees with his tail in between his legs.
