Desperate Housewives – desperate dialogue?

Fillipino viewers are looking for an apology from the Desperate Housewives show about a recent remark about Philippine medical schools:

A racial slur made against Philippine medical schools shown in the hit American television series “Desperate Housewives” prompted several Filipinos to demand an apology from the show’s creators. In the scene that was shown in the US on Sept 30, Dr. Mayfair told a visibly terrified Mayer that the word “menopause” seems to open a Pandora’s Box for the age-conscious middle-aged woman. “They hear ageing, brittle bones, loss of sexual drive…” said the doctor who was cut midway from his explanation by an agitated Mayer.

“Before we go any further, can I check those diplomas? ‘Coz, I just want to make sure they’re not from some med school in the Philippines,” she said while searching for the doctor’s records. He apparently graduated from Harvard Medical School. (For the clip click http://mindy-tv.blogspot.com/2007/10/second-class-citizens.html)

GMANews.TV received e-mails from concerned viewers who found the remark insulting to many Filipinos. Some blogs have also discussed the negative remark made about the Philippines.
