Daily Mail: The tragic truth about cousin marriages: They can cause a litany of genetic illnesses and they're a key factor in the deaths of two children a week in Britain, so why is it taboo to talk about them, asks SUE REID.
Because in the Western world, standards are for White people. When Pakis Asians engage in destructive behavior, the prudent and progressive way is to simply ignore the whole thing.
In British Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities, marriage between cousins is designed to strengthen the family and keep wealth intact.
But there are massive health risks involved for the children of such couples. And when they are tragically born with disabilities, it is taxpayers who are left to pick up the huge costs of their NHS treatment, which can run into millions over a lifetime.
Just another benefit of diversity.
Thousands more children of consanguineous marriages survive, but with appalling physical or mental problems. These include blindness, deafness, blood ailments, heart or kidney failure, lung or liver problems and a myriad of often incurable and complex neurological or brain disorders.
When these mentally ill and low-IQ Muslims try and fail to keep a job in the modern world, it's because of BIGOTRY, RACISM and ISLAMOPHOBIA! It's easy to blame the infidels than to face the fact that they are fucked in the head thanks to their parents, culture, and religion.
The likelihood of a couple having the same variant gene is a hundred to one in the general population.
In cousin marriages, that can rise to one in eight because those who are related to each other are more likely to carry the same faults in their DNA.
Yet despite the dangers — and the huge cost to the NHS — according to the BBC, it is estimated that 55 per cent of couples of Pakistani heritage in the UK are in cousin marriages.
Obviously, a tiny minority.
