Hawaiian origin[edit]

I removed Hawaiian since it is misleading, making people believe that Lou Diamond Phillips is of 'Oiwi ancestry.

In the past, someone mistook his ties to the Hawaiian islands as being of Hawaiian ancestry. Since most people do not recognize our nationality, we'll keep it simple and just omit "Hawaiian".

Seems that an anonymous user 24.130.117.205 added in "Hawaiian" again. Unless you can prove by stating how he get his Hawaiian ancestry of which we know he has no Hawaiian ancestor, I'd stop adding it in. Keep in mind that unless we're talking about Hawaiian Nationality, then I'd understand but Lou Diamond was not born in Hawaii. Many people today use "Hawaiian" as an ethnicity which was imposed by the U.S. That means any descendant of the inhabitants of the Hawaiian Islands prior to 1778. We refer to that as 'Oiwi.

Now I was able to verify through Lou Diamond's uncle, his father's half brother Arthur Bowden Upchurch how Gerald was born in Henry County, Georgia & that family have been in Georgia going back to their Great-great-grandfather Claburn Upchurch, and that they do have Scottish, Irish & Cherokee ancestry. Not Hawaiian. Mamoahina (talk) 00:29, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Limerence Crossreference[edit]

Why is friendship with teacher crossreferenced to Limerence? Even in the context of Stand And Deliver that is not what occurs between the characters. I'm going to remove this crossreference unless anyone can give me a good reason for it. Gilgamesh Rex 23:08, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Manatees?[edit]

A source for the STM foundation?97.104.212.196 (talk) 15:32, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

it's highly suspicious (*shave* the manatee??), I will check around but I think we could delete without a second though Plch (talk) 16:05, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

>>>apparently somebody added a lot of creative details... and not only about manatee... Plch (talk) 16:33, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Lou Diamond Phillips[edit]

does Lou Diamond Phillips have any siblings? If so, do you know what their names are? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.64.3.19 (talk) 01:18, 12 July 2009 (UTC)


Filipino?[edit]

He was born on a U.S. base in the Philippines and grew up in Texas. Is he still not American or something? 67.121.155.62 (talk) 00:39, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

He's American, as it says in the lead, with multi-ethnic ancestry.--Parkwells (talk) 23:17, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

Birth name discrepancy[edit]

Stew Diamond Phillips or Lou Diamond Upchurch? The intro says one thing and a following section says the other. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.215.232.157 (talk) 19:00, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Autobiography?[edit]

There's an unsourced claim that Phillips is writing an autobiography, something he denies in a recent interview. It should be removed. http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/2010/08/30/august-30-2010-the-greatest-lou-diamond-phillips-interview-ever/ Parableman (talk) 05:29, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

He denies it in this interview as well. I removed it. Davhorn (talk) 14:03, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Marriages[edit]

The Lou Diamond Phillips wiki page states he married Julie Cypher in 1987. Julie Cypher's page states it was in 1986. Both of these can't be correct. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 73.189.15.101 (talk) 08:33, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
