A new fertility company is seeking to offer African couples biracial babies through White donor sperm.
According to the Half-Caste Babies website, their goal is to further diversify Africa’s gene pool:
“We make racial integration possible not only by marriage but also by birth. Gone are the days when to give birth to a mixed race (half-caste) baby is only through interracial marriage. Now any couple, single woman etc. hoping to have a half-caste baby and thereby promote world integration can freely and easily have one. ”
“This is the beginning of a new world of mixed race and it all starts with just a simple but bold decision, giving birth to a mixed race baby through artificial means of conception. In this new world all that matters is LOVE and CARE.”
The company’s ultimate vision is creating “one people, one world.” Per an investigative article on Infoboxx.com, a man named Augustine N.K. Boateng is the person behind the campaign. Speaking to the site via phone, Boateng didn’t offer specific details as to why he began Half-Caste. “I just started it and wouldn’t want to involve the media at this early stage,” he said.
However, the article does cite a Facebook post from Boateng, where he cites his company as bringing Africa into the future.
“A new world has began and it is like the tide, you either swim along or get left behind. You too can be a blessing for the next generation,” he wrote. Half-caste babies can bridge “a vast racial gap between Africa and the rest of the world,” he added.
The investigation also revealed that Boateng offers sperm donors from multiple nationalities, including men in the U.K. and U.S.
Some Ghanians on Facebook have less positive views of the venture.
“What is the world turning into? For lack of knowledge, my people perish and in the abundance of knowledge people will become foolish…God knew these will surely come,” wrote a user named Henry Howard, screencapped on Infoboxx.
“But believe me. Sad and stupid as this thing is, some people are going to fall for and rush for it,” added Daniel Allan.
