ANALYSIS/OPINION:

American white men are just no darn good, if you listen to the embittered ladies of the radical feminist persuasion and their enablers in the media and in certain halls of learning, but the good news is that they’re apparently not good for nothing.

The sperm of American white men, if not a man himself, is much sought by fertile Brazilian women out to find not mates, but the sperm to give them fair-skinned, blue-eyed children The Wall Street Journal describes as off-spring with “jewel-tone eyes, blond hair and a smattering of light freckles.”

Over the past several years, the Journal reports, human sperm imports from the United States to Brazil “have surged as more rich women and lesbian couples select donors whose online profiles suggest they will yield light-complexioned and preferable blue-eyed children.”

Most Brazilians are of mixed-race, ranging from light tan to the color of coffee with cream to deep black, and Brazil is one of the most race-conscious countries in the world. “Everyone wants a ‘pretty kid,’” says one importer of American sperm, and for many prospective parents that means “the white biotype, light-colored eyes and skin.”

Social class and skin color correlate throughout the world, sad but true, and it resonates particularly in Brazil, which imported 10 times more African slaves than the United States. Slavery was not abolished in Brazil until 1888, more than two decades after the Civil War put an end to it in the United States. This colored Brazilian society, and encouraged race-consciousness.



Many women who can’t afford the $1,500 for a vial of American sperm look for domestic sperm with the wanted characteristics on Facebook. Many men saying they have those characteristics volunteer their services free or at a discount.

One of those is a computer scientist named Joao Carlos Holland de Barcellos, whose blue eyes and blond hair he credits to English and German ancestors. His wife manages his schedule at their home in Sao Paulo, and assists his donations, to a steady stream of women, with a syringe.

Siring children, he tells the Journal, is a way to send along his genes to succeeding generations as a means of insuring his existence beyond death. “It’s an atheist’s way to achieve immortality.” Or if not immortality, the here and now for just a few years more.
