Vice Ganda is getting so much praise from netizens after he commented on the current state of the marginalized Filipinos during a recent “It’s Showtime” episode.
The unkabogable comedian used to think that it’s the poor people’s fault that they stay poor, but now he’s realized that it’s really the lack of opportunities that’s to blame for their poverty.
“Minsan kaya lalo kang humihirap kasi they’re being deprived of opportunities. Isipin mo ‘yung mga magsasaka, hindi sila tamad. Sila, araw-araw sila nagpapakahirap, pero hindi sila umaasenso. Hindi pa nila naiipon ‘yung target nila, tumataas na naman ‘yung presyo… ‘Yung mga nagtitinda ng taho, ng fishball, araw-araw ‘yun, hindi sila tamad… Masisisi mo rin ang lipunan at ang gobyerno… Maraming nagsisikap pero minamalas na nade-deprive ng opportunities,” he said.
Vice furthered that rich people should take it upon themselves to help the less fortunate.
“May ibang nagsasabing hindi obligasyon ng mayayaman na tumulong… pero sa’kin oo dapat,” he said. “Hindi naman lahat [ng meron ka], para sa’yo. Idinaan lang ‘yan sa’yo ng Diyos para ipamigay mo.”
Vice really does have a heart of gold!
Recall that the Philippine Statistics Authority recently announced that the inflation rate in the country rose to 6.4% in August, the highest in more than nine years.
