Before the Year ends… one question: Is Gat Jose Rizal an elitist?

Happy New Year everyone!

I have just one question to ask. Is Jose Rizal an elitist?

Possible “Facts” that makes our national hero elitist:

1.) He spoke Spanish more fluently than Tagalog.

2.) There’s no evidence that he interacted with poor people.

3.) He learned all the foreign languages as much as he could, but he barely spoke any of the local languages of the Philippines.

4.) He wanted the Philippines to still be a part of Spain.

5.) He lived most of his adult life in Europe, perchance?

I am a very opinionated person. Get used to it. If you can't stand it, then so be it.
