The degeneracy of this thread is the reason why I left this site for a long while. It's not a question of "evolution" but of social development. The US brutalised the Philippines and left it poor and uneducated. Simple as that. It's not because of some idiocy about divergent evolution or distinction in human groups which only racists (here liberals included, who nevertheless prefer to appear enlightened by talking of "culture" instead of biology) are obsessed with. Had the US not colonised the Philippines, it probably wouldn't be Japan but neither would it be what it is today. It could be comparable to Argentina or Chile, for example.
