Tragedi bangsa manusia

In the years after slavery was abolished, injustices were still visited upon people of color that made the ideal of human rights something of a joke. One of the most startling expressions of the 'lack of humanity' that black people possessed in the eyes of whites is shown by the story of Ota Benga, a member of a pygmy tribe from Africa. In 1906 Benga became an exhibit in the Monkey House of the Bronx Zoo. Yes, that’s right – a man was caged and exhibited in a zoo. Does amorality know no bounds?
