Philippine Flag at the Finals of America's Best Dance Crew

RJ "Rockadile" Puno of Super Cr3w, winner of the Americas Best Dance Crew, wave the Philippine Flag in front of American audience. Super Cr3w and 8 other crews out of 10 has atleast one Pil-am members. RJ once promise in an interview by www.bakitwhy.com that he will wear the philippine flag onstage if they made it to the finals. But it still surprise me seeing the Philippine Flag in an American TV show that has been dominated by Filipino Dancers for two consecutive season. And I become more emotional when all the Pil-Am finalist join the stage and passed the flag around. moments like that makes me proud of being a Filipino.

I'm so happy to know that Pinoys in other country, especially young pinoys are learning their roots and culture and being proud of it. Because many Pilipino here in the Philippines are trying to imitate and practice foreign culture while denying their own culture and goes to the extent being ashamed of our own culture.

To all Phil-am dancers on ABDC, Thank you for representing filipino in the US of A.
