    So I was looking up some stuff; there's still occaisional (and it appears to be illegal I think) cannibalism taking place in the Nyanza Province of Kenya where Obama's father is from. Here's some crazy shit; a form of cannibalism practiced in Kenya during lean (ha ha) times was for a well built woman to actuallly slice off parts of her body so that warriors could be fed. It was a big deal and looked upon rather favorably.

    Regarding racist white Americans; it is possible that some forms of cannibalsim may have been witnessed among slaves. If cannibalism was practiced among tribes in Africa why would that suddenly stop just because they were loaded up on a boat and shipped overseas?

    Lets be realistic. It's not about what is correct, it's about what the mental image that phrase owns.
    exactly, it's not about what is historically correct. it's about racist, ignorant assumptions.
    of course cannibalism was (and is maybe still) practised by societies all over the world. no one is disputing that. but it's besides the point.

    You've got Americans saying stupid, racist shit about Obama. Coming from a foreigner isn't shocking.

    John R. Baker: Cannibalism in Central Africa
    This one is crazy; interesting regarding the Fang and Azande (sp) possibly coming from the same origin. It's crazy all the different ways cannibalism was and is (gross) practiced throughout the world. I've watched too much Discovery channel crap.

    The creepiest one would be the New Guinea tribes that gave themselves human mad cow from eating their dead relatives' brains yum!!! Oh I think that very first article covers how they shake them out of the trees.

    This one's a bit suspect to me.

    "A university lecturer once recalled the cannibalistic tendencies among a certain tribe in Western Kenya. "This was long ago when communities still waged wars against each other," she told an attentive class deviating from the normal literature lectures. "In this community, well endowed women were and are still highly regarded," she said. During times of war and in the event of famine the women were often forced to slice off a part of their fatty bodies to feed the warriors. "In this way they had share of the ultimate victory because they fed the warriors," she said."

    Neither the lecturer, the course nor the university is named and this appears to be the only reference to this. Also, how is it sliced off without killing the woman? How much flesh?

    I'm not seeing anything in the links you've provided. Am I missing it somewhere?

    Bondo is in the province and the story about the guy who was digging up graves and eating brains to cure a skin condition I think is there.

    One case of mental illness does not a nation of cannibals make. The guy was a nutter.

    If he even exists. The only fact given is the name of the officer and all searches on that lead back to the same one story above.

    Just think of how many people can be fed from that guy in the other thread...
