KKK - Ku Klux Klan or simply the Klan, is three distinct movements in the United States that have advocated extremist reactionary positions such as white supremacy, white nationalism, anti-immigration and—especially in later iterations—Nordicism, anti-Catholicism and antisemitism. Historically, the KKK used terrorism—both physical assault and murder—against groups or individuals whom they opposed. All three movements have called for the “purification” of American society and all are considered right-wing extremist organizations. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ku_Klux_Klan
In the Philippines:
KKK - Kataas-taasang, Kagalang-galangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan, or simply the Katipunan (usually abbreviated to KKK) was a Philippine revolutionary society founded by anti-Spanish Filipinos in Manila in 1892, whose primary aim was to gain independence from Spain through revolution. It was primarily led by Andres Bonifacio, the “Father of Philippine Revolution.” Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katipunan
So you see, there are a lot of stuffs that don’t mean the same in other countries. Lol.
Hi!Have you ever tried to personify any countries yourself?? And if you had can you share some? P.S I'm in love with your art!
Yes. I have some. The most recurring one among the designs is the one for the Philippines, the place I currently reside. There’s a male and female version, but, I mostly use the male one for strips because I think ‘Phil’ sounds like a pretty chill bro haha
(I made a parody comic before. It’s read right to left)
It’s been a long time since I posted, so here are older drawings of my female Hetalia OCs <3 With an alternate outfit, too. Philippines is co-owned with her original mommy being @melonstyle !! DO NOT use these OCs or this artwork without my written permission. don’t copy their design aspects either. do not.
Kuya, we know you like America, but what do you think about America's boss and having to work with them now?
M!A: Male Phili [25/8]. And that’s the end of the M!A. It’s back to female Phili.
The background is Fort Santiago, a part of the walled city of Intramuros. During the Spanish period, that was the capital city of Manila, where the colonial government ruled the country.
While it is true that the Philippines was a Spanish colony, the Philippines was too far away and expensive to keep. But King Felipe was like, It’s so un-Christian to abandon those poor, unfortunate souls we saved just coz there’s no money. Let Nueva España take care of it.
And so, from the earliest years of Spanish colonization up to the Mexican independence, we were governed by Nueva España.
I suppose it’s safe to say Mexico did pay for wall, so, thank you Mexico//bricked
