If you mean currently, then I don't think they have conflicts.

But in the past, the Filipinos didn't get alone with the Spaniards because they colonized us. It would've been okay, but they became abusive. Although the Spanish did introduce a lot of innovations and added a lot of things to our culture, they took advantage of the Filipinos.

They used religion to control the people. The government made them pay absurd taxes and forced them to sell their goods at low prices to the government. The males were forced to do 'polo y servicio' which was basically forced labor -- this is how most of the buildings during the Spanish era were constructed (think Intramuros and other forts) were built.

If you read up on the Spanish colonization of the Philippines, you might understand it more. :) Good luck! :D
