    Please provide your references for your facts I have also read and studied some of the literature and thus far your speak is opinionated and not quite factual.

    Always trying to justify what's wrong! Limited choice is not free choice!

    I don't think anyone can speak so certainly about her circumstances when the bulk of what is known is based upon speculation and passed down with altered stories. The fact of the matter remains that Baartman was exploited in life and death, whether or not it was against her will is irrelevant. The acts themselves which she endured were a testament to the cruelty of our species, that several races have endured. We have no right to ridicule others and place them on display for amusement and neither did they.
