I read that Guardian article. Here are two noteworthy quotes:
The men hold cock fights nearby, the birds fighting to the death…The men who live here are construction workers building the hotels that support the sex tourism industry, or drivers, or security guards.
The mothers are often themselves the children of sex workers and foreigners without a name; these young children are a third generation abandoned by their fathers.
Instead of cock fights, the men should have fought off sex tourists who preyed on their women. Furthermore, why didn’t the women insist on contraceptives or specifically condoms? Children being born in such large numbers suggest that this is a planned racket. Girls with Caucasian features fetch a larger sum when they are adult prostitutes. So having a child with such features ensures a steady retirement income for the mothers and the larger extended family.
I am not being callous here. I need an answer on why there are such high numbers of half-Caucasian children among Filipino prostitutes when various NGOs distribute condoms for free in the Third World.
I guess examples like these would be used to justify the creation of a genetic database of all residents worldwide one day.
Also, the Guardian’s neoliberal racism clearly shows through here. Why didn’t they just publish a few photos of half black children?
