Desperate Housewives jokes about Med Schools in the Philippines

A recent episode of popular TV series Desperate Housewives (season 4) made a joke about medical schools in the Philippines that has been the cause for outrage by a lot of Filipinos.

See the short YouTube clip here:


The line goes “Okay. Before going further, can I check these diplomas cause I would just like to make sure that they’re not from some med school in the Philippines?”“.

Frankly, I found it funny, knowing a lot of people especially students go to Recto to fix their academic problems. Still, a lot of people have found this bit of humor offensive and racist.

Learned about this from Michelle Malkin (via a trackback) who shares her own take on the matter.
