Cobelco. Belgium human zoo.

Human Zoo contains humans rather than animals.

There were many human zoos in the first half of the 20th Century.

These zoos emphasized that the White Christian Americans and Europeans were superior to 'primitive' non-Whites who were closer to the great apes.


Some examples:

In the 16th century, Cardinal Hippolytus Medici had a collection of people of different races in his 'zoo'.

In the 1850s, Maximo and Bartola, two microcephalic children from El Salvador, were exhibited in the US and Europe

Maximo and Bartola, c. 1867

In the 1870s, human zoos could be found in Britain, the USA, France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Italy and Poland.

In 1904, in the USA, ApachesIgorots (from the Philippines), and a Congolese called Ota Benga were put on display in a 'zoo'.

Ota Benga, a human exhibit in the primate section at the Bronx Zoo, in 1906. 

In France, between 1906 and 1931, dark skinned humans were displayed in cages, often nude.

A counter-exhibition in France, entitled The Truth about the Colonies, attracted few visitors.

In 1925, a display at Belle Vue Zoo in Manchester, England, was entitled "Cannibals" and featured black Africans depicted as savages.[15]

In 1906, Madison Grant, a eugenicist and head of the New York Zoological Society, put Ota Benga  on display at the Bronx Zoo in New York City.

Benga was displayed in a cage with the chimpanzees.

When Benga was out of the cage, he was often followed by a crowd "howling, jeering and yelling."[14]

Ota Benga in 1904.

Ota Benga (1883 -1916) was bought from African slave traders by the explorer Samuel Phillips Verner, a businessman hunting for Africans to be put on display in the USA.

Ota Benga was from the Belgian Congo.

King Leopold II of Belgium ran the Belgian Congo as a slave colony.

Those who resisted the King's regime were usually killed.

Benga's wife and two children were killed.

Ota Benga committed suicide in 1916 at the age of 32.[3]

Above we see Ishi, a Native American, who was displayed in a human zoo.

Above, we see Philip Emeagwali, a Nigerian who has an IQ of 190.

The average IQ in Hong Kong is 108.

The average IQ in the United States is 98.

Dr. Philip Emeagwali: Inventor of the World's Fastest Computer.

Emeagwali studied for a Ph.D. degree from the University of Michigan from 1987 through 1991. 

His thesis was not accepted. 

Emeagwali filed a court challenge, stating that the university had discriminated against him because of his race.

Dr Philip Emeagwali received the 1989 Gordon Bell Prize for an application of the CM-2 massively-parallel computer. 

The application used computational fluid dynamics for oil-reservoir modelling. 

His method involved each microprocessor communicating with six neighbours.[5]

Emeagwali's simulation was the first program to apply a pseudo-time approach to reservoir modeling.[1]

When it comes to global school rankings (Pisa test scores) Asian countries dominate the top of the rankings, with socialist Singapore heading the table. 

The United States comes in at number 28.

The Scots have invented large numbers of things.

However, in Scotland, people from the White Scottish group are the least likely to have degrees (17%).

In Scotland, the group with the highest proportion of people educated to degree level is the African group (47%)

As far as Ota Benga's story is concerned, has anything really changed? In more general terms, his story isn't any different than a typical modern day "gangsta rap" star. Playing in the jungle one day. Discovered by a white man. Put on display. The Jews get rich and the negro ends up dead. The end.

"The average IQ in the United States is 98."

98? That seems a bit high, would of thought the average in the USA was in the 80's.

If IQ was based on political knowledge alone, Americans would be in the 40's.

98? So it's gone down even more since 2008. Americans should be Horrified!!! Though probably aren't.

These days to get a college degree you don't really need to be that smart. Just show up to the classes and do your homework. I have met many people with college degrees that have a very low IQ overall. When you place race and politics before anything else, you need to be extremely manipulative and sophisticated to get your point across.

Jill Stein v. Bernie Sanders

by Stephen Lendman

Differences between them are stark - Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein a true populist, Sanders one in name only.

His business as usual voting record belies his call for revolutionary change - favoring old wine in new bottles, grand deception, longstanding Sanders practice.

He’s a con man, part of the dirty system like all other duopoly power candidates. Otherwise he wouldn’t be major party presidential material.

They all march to the same drummer, campaign promises made to be broken. The trouble with Sanders is he’s like all the rest, a walking talking conflict of interest.

His sole redeeming quality is he’s no Hillary Clinton, the most recklessly dangerous US presidential aspirant in memory. Don’t let her gender fool you.

Sanders’ support for Israel’s killing machine is especially troubling. He backed its premeditated summer 2014 naked aggression on Gaza - based on Big Lies.

During an August 2014 town hall meeting, he shamelessly defended its genocidal slaughter, telling a Palestinian supporter to “shut up.”

He blames Hamas for Israeli high crimes. He voted for Senate legislation, calling on the UN to rescind the Goldstone report - exposing Israel’s December 2008-January 2009 naked aggression on Gaza.

He opposes Palestinian statehood based on pre-June 1967 borders - 22% of historic Palestine.

He's against it without first achieving the impossible - Israel agreeing to an equitable peace. He supports vetoing any Security Council resolution on Palestinian statehood without a settlement - based on Israeli imposed terms.

He ignores its support for ISIS, supplying its forces with weapons, treating its wounded in its hospitals so they can return to battle and commit more atrocities.

According to Sanders, Israel is defending freedom against religious fundamentalism. It’s headquartered in Tel Aviv and Riyadh.

Stein and Sanders are polar opposites. She calls him “a loyal man of America’s global empire.”

He supports Washington’s phony war on terror, its justification for endless aggression. He backs Saudi Arabia, Turkey and other tyrannical regimes committing egregious human rights abuses.

If elected president, drone warfare will continue on his watch, nonbelligerent civilians harmed most, murdered in cold blood - on the phony pretext of targeting terrorists.

He considers world-class heroes Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden common criminals. He once called model democrat Hugo Chavez a “dead communist dictator.”

IQ tests are not a very good measure of intelligence..the more I take the better I get at answering the questions, but surely my IQ is fixed? ISO I don't trust IQ tests give a true picture.
