This maybe a small thing to you, but a very big deal for some politically correct Filipinos.
Politically correct Filipinos, would always say that “Filipino” is Philippines’ National Language.
But for Pinoys from the provinces whose first language is not Tagalog would find it a bit offensive or feel isolated.
I always thought I was one of the few who think this way. But after watching a concert of David Dimuzio in Iligan. Dimuzio, an American who speaks tagalog, asked the audience if it’s Tagalog or Filipino, the crowd shouted, “Tagalog!”
Tagalog or Filipino, it’s the same thing.
