Such zoos could be found in New York, London, Warsaw, Barcelona, Hamburg and other cities around the world with up to 300,000 visitors attending each display.


3

A Negro Village was the main attraction at the 1889 Parisian World’s Fair. About 28 million people visited it.


4

Human zoos were so popular in Germany that even German-Prussian statesman of the late 19th century Bismarck attended one of them.


5

These five Indians from Kawesqar tribe were kidnapped from Chile in 1881 to be exhibited in one of the European human zoos. They all died within a year.


6

Africans were often exhibited next to monkeys to show that they were closer to animals than to humans.

These are NOT zoos. Temporary villages is more accurate. World Expositions have been going on for a long time all around the world. China was the latest to have one. A different country hosts it every few years for a year at a time. Participating countries set up their own exhibits to show the rest of the world their culture, the way it really is, culture, dress, language, architecture, everything about themselves.

Those were the good ol' days.

We still have many, many negro villages in existence today - they're called prisons.

White people in general have acted like assholes all throughout history.

Go read Imperial Cruise by James Bradley.

Yeah c, the villagers looked absolutely thrilled in all the images. I guess the white people went to their land and they just signed up for a wonderful trip to strange and distand lands. Not to mention that it was not a round trip ticket.
