Gern Origins: Zamboanga (7) RE: Origins: Zamboanga 14 Jul 03


This song is older than WWII, and has a sad history. Perhaps it doesn't need to be pointed out that this is a racist song. Those monkeys without tails were the Filipinos themselves: Mindanao natives who fought US invaders in the Moro Wars of the early 20th century. It was a precursor of the Vietnam War: white colonialists fighting freedom fighters of color--atrocities on both sides--ugly racial attitudes, etc.
