Stupidity and being dumb aren't the same thing. A person can be forgiven for being dumb because said person simply doesn't know any better. Being stupid, on the other hand, is about knowing, or at least having access to better information, but eschewing it altogether. Being stupid doesn't mean you know nothing. Indeed, you know SOMETHING and you know what is right and yet you choose what is wrong anyway. A good example of being stupid is seeing a door that says "pull" but you "push" anyway.
I understand Filipinos who are unfortunate in life but I'm not going to let misfortune be an excuse for bad behavior.
