Sara Baartman

She allowed them to treat her like an animal who performed tricked and other degrading acts for their entertainment…

For their amusement she was stripped of dignity, stripped of pride as to portray a tamed Savage, a wild beast on a leash…

She fascinated them, she hypnotized them and was beguiled by them who claimed they had her best interest at heart…

Jealousy and curiosity in every touch of her magnificent Butt which she shook with a vigor and made them shiver at the Wonder in all that Brown Thunder…

They lied to her, kept the word pride from ever visiting her… She would drink in overflow to cover her shame…in overflow to cover her pain…

They paraded her and debased her with impunity and the approval of the Court community…

She captivated them especially the men who were transfixed at her succulent lips and huge tits…

Examined her like a horse, mounted her, rode her, and displayed her sacred parts for their eyes pleasure and sick curiosity…

She was viewed and accepted as a Circus Performer whose body was abnormal, whose behavior was of savagery and now tamed enough to entertain a raucous crowd, who refused to see underneath that Mountain of a Woman, a Beautiful Black Woman…

They saw She-Beast, they saw Savage, and they applauded, her every move, her every act was accepted as facts…

No one look in her eyes long and seen her shame, seen her pain, seen that she was tired and dying…

Saartjie Baartman aka Sara Baartman aka Venus of Hottentot, Your story should be told, our daughters and sisters should be aware that there still are people out there who live to exploit their beauty, their bodies…

Some still having learn…
