White Woman Barbara Sherin Accuses Cambodians of Cheating Her...

Still not buying anybody pancakes, yucky food. :D
I would say that the etymology of the term Flip has not been determined. For example, there is even the suggestion that it was Flippers themselves who started calling each other Flips:
According to the late journalist and activist Alex Fabros, Sr. (1903–1999), the term was first used among Filipinos sometime after his immigration to the United States in 1929.

The term came into widespread use in the 1980s and the 1990s.
That's why I would like to see some real evidence on the etymology of the word to prove that it does have racist origins.

"She may be a great LBFM, but don't trust her".
Last time I was in the Philippines, I saw a LBFM who wasn't wearing any underwear.

I could see her flip-flaps.

...and she is also accused of making racist comments about Cambodians and Flippers.
Please try to avoid referring to Filipinos as Flippers. It's a racial slur directed at Filipinos coined by the American GIs during WWII.
I don't think that it is a racial slur.
Yup. It's not. The last time there was an actual word that has an effect was during the Spanish period. Now, words alone aren't seen as racial slurs and nobody takes offense whatever you think which words will "hurt". It all depends on the context. Sometimes it becomes annoying, but no one's gonna rub your face on asphalt for using the word.

Looks like the subject of this thread is stirring up a hornet's nest on 440...something about lonely, uneducated white men being easy targets by cambo girls. Revenge? [Mod edit: Link removed.]

You two truly deserve each other. Then you could get down to work and produce more Aryan ladyboys who could teach you how chocolate is best appreciated. Republicans need such a class act as a remedy for social constipation.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

Look,let’s not be so judge mental on this beautiful well aged lassie,she very well could be a lovely person with a heart of gold ,gorgeous blue eyes,pure blonde hair,just because she said a few things doesn’t make her a bad person,I’m sure many of you have had moments when your whiteness kicks in and you vent out at the locals from time to time or am I alone on this with Barbie babe?

She is a 48-year-old Canadian who has taught in Oman, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong and Canada.
She probably did those "cultural experiences" in the wrong order - and I'm serious now.
Moving from Hong Kong or Japan to Oman or Cambodia is very different to the opposite.

She says she "enjoys new cultural experiences and challenges".
Culture adaption fatigue has set in, oh dear!


Strange that many people still don't get that others will gladly make one weak moment/mistake "last forever" thanks to social media + google.
