    At one point in time the word “badjau” was used and perhaps with a connotation that invokes derogatory remarks about these people, their ways of living being the subject. A contemptuous term similar to the word “nigger”, badjau nowadays is the term preferred by the people not giving a shit if this spineless minority deems it offensive, which in my honest opinion, is politically incorrect.

    I have some comments on the terms used by the writer, or some other writers/historians, such as “pala’u”, “Sama Deya”, or on the different forms of “Badjao, etc. I am very interested to discuss all about these because I have historical bases, oral traditions, and neutral arguments concerning all these. However, I can’t give you my time because I am very busy for four years. Anyway, I will explain to you those when I will be free. Magsukur.
