In the Philippines, the term “Amerasian” refers to a child of an American and a Filipino. The racial background of the American parent is not essential; he or she can be Caucasian, Black, Hispanic, Native American, or even Asian. There are Amerasians in practically all socioeconomic classes.
A large number of Amerasians live in Angeles City, Pampanga, and Metro Manila. Other Amerasians are scattered throughout the rest of the country.
