Sebastian “Baste” Duterte, the youngest son of President Rodrigo Duterte, expressed his opinion about discrimination among Filipinos during the FightCon held at the Amoranto Theater in Quezon City last Saturday, July 2.
Baste carefully explained that not all with tattoos and piercings are drug addicts. “Hindi ibig sabihin kapag may hikaw ka sa bibig at may tattoo ka sa katawan, addict ka na, rebellious na. No. It’s not always ganoon,” he said.
The young Duterte also encouraged everyone to stay away from drugs, “Yes to sports, yes to music, no to drugs. Very basic, just follow it. Alam niyo namang nakakasira ‘yung drugs, bakit niyo pa gagawin?”
He also asked everyone to keep an open mind, “I studied in San Beda. Akala ng mga kaklase ko, dahil taga Mindanao ako, Muslim na ako. Ano ba iyon, ‘di ba? It’s not even bad to be a Muslim pero bakit may ganun silang idea na kapag taga Mindanao, Muslim ka na? I’m not saying it’s discrimination but pakiusap naman, open your minds,” he said.
