Filipinos are brown-skinned.

Race doesn't have to do so much with skin color as it does with region of origin, since there are very light skinned black people as well as very dark skinned black people. As a side note, race is a socially constructed idea that doesn't actually exist; there are no biological differences between the races, but it continues to be a lived experience and so persists today.

As for Filipinos, they are from the Philippines, which is a country in Southeast Asia, which would make them Asian.
