United States before the withdrawal of US troops,124 and only a fraction of the remaining children were evacuated in Operation Babylift or thereafter. That the phenomenon of a sizeable minority of children of South East AsianAmerican children of GIs was not a new one, is clear from the above analysis of American Second World War and post-war deployment in Asia; but in fact this was not the beginning of Asian-American offspring born of war either.

Europeans, for example, were “acute, inventive,” and “[g]overned by laws,” whereas Africans were “crafty, indolent, negligent,” and “[g]overned by caprice.”10 Other Enlightenment thinkers followed Linnaeus’s lead.
