Filipinas who are issued a US fiance visa need to attend a week long seminar called “Guidance and Concealing Program”. It’s country specific dealing with the issues Filipinas may face in that particular country. Upon completion a certificate is issued that is stamped in to her passport. Yes, the government takes it so seriously that without it she will not be able to leave the country.
Filipinas learn about how to get out of an abusive relationship with her Kano partner and how and where to get help. They watch educational movies about the cultural differences and also stories about abused Filipinas. They also do interactive role playing to practice how to stand up against an abusive Kano. It is an intense one week learning camp.
But what about us Whites and Kanos? As we all know there is a greater chance that a Kano will be abused and even murdered by his Filipina and her family than the other way around. Why not have a similar course for whites who are about to start a relationship with a Filipina? Maybe a collection of well organized material that is available online? Let me ask you readers: What movies and books would you recommend for this course if there was one?
For a starter I would recommend the 3 part documentary called Our Man in Manila.Published in
