    about the difficulties that some Vietnamese children, fathered by American GIs, had after being rejected at home and adopted by American families.  The program went on and on about how thye were being rejected at home for not being "fully" Vietnamese.  Some of them adapted very well here, and others had painful, difficult lives.  The piece the program never mentioned, hwoever, although it appeared obvious from the film, was that those who had difficulty in American life had been fathered by Black GIs, and those who were welcomed more readily had been fathered by white GIs.  So in the end, that's what it came down to.

    If you think you're too small to be effective, you've never been in the dark with a mosquito.
