Chinese museum accused of racism over photos pairing Africans with animals

A museum in China has removed an exhibit this week that juxtaposed photographs of animals with portraits of black Africans, sparking complaints of racism.

The exhibit titled This Is Africa at the Hubei Provincial Museum in the city of Wuhan displayed a series of diptychs, each one containing a photo of an African person paired with the face of an animal. In a particularly striking example, a child with his mouth wide open was paired with a gorilla and other works included baboons and cheetahs.

    In this case I vote for China as much as it pains me.

    Fuck me, everybody should go to the link and have a look!

    very insulting… to the animals

    Dear black people, it ain’t just the white people that see it.
    If the black people are seen that way by the Chinese people, and the black people dont like it, they need to take it up with the Chinese.
    I refuse to get offended on their behalf.

      There is only one race of man that finds their own women hideous, and it ain’t mine.

      The same scientists that name subspecies for the tiniest variations in appearance insist that Mike Tyson and Kim Yuna are exactly the same thing.

      • P_F

        Very true.
        Someone with a science background who went to the univ in pre-pc days it always amazes me how these scientists who’ll create a new specie or sub-specie for very similar looking birds or animals with a drop of the hat would class all the humans into one species, despite the fact that the differences between human races are quite obvious.

        • shasta

          Species and subspecies(races) are different things, and if you have a science background I’m surprised that you don’t know it. When dealing with the fossil record, there is by necessity a fair bit of guess work as you cannot test extinct parents for fertile offspring.

      I’m quite certain that the woman on the left is an Australian aborigines and not African American.

      • Drunk by Noon ✓

        And you would be correct!
        Interesting fact.
        The three genetic races furthest apart are Sub Saharan blacks, Australian Aborigines, and the English.

            You can only do that because the Europeans bred themselves into tolerance for alcohol. Darwinian natural selection eliminated those who who either could not tolerate alcohol or did things monumentally so stupid while they were drumk that the never were able to reproduce.

            The Bible makes numerous references to wine, which was enjoyed as “gladdening the heart.”

          The pictures should at least match the “point” one is trying to make. That’s why.

  • Communists have always been racists. They only pretend to be anti-racist until people get sucked into elevating them to power. Then they take the anti-racist mask off.

    • Drunk by Noon ✓

      The communists (Trotsky) LITERALLY INVENTED the concept of RACISM in 1927.
      That’s why I don’t believe in it and why I reject the entire concept as “not real”.
      There ARE differences between races and there is nothing immoral or wrong in recognizing that.

        read aTROUBLESOME INHERITANCE, it goes into the genetic differences between human races and why they are different.

  • Tooth&Claw

    Chinese call white people, white devils or round eyes. So?

    • Drunk by Noon ✓

      Where are the blacks getting offended on our behalf?
      Oh yeah, there aren’t any!

      • WalterBannon

        they will comment as soon as they have finished committing white genocide in South Africa…

    • WalterBannon

      they are just jealous that despite being smarter than us on average, we came up with all the great ideas in history and all they can do is steal our ideas and make things cheaper…

      funny how culture plays as big a role in the ability to innovate as does intellect…

      • Tooth&Claw

        What I’m getting at is that racial slurs only hurt you if you let them. Chinese are just as racist as any other human group.

    • They also claim that Caucasians have big “schnozoos”. And they are right — at least in comparison to petite Asian noses. But God made a trade-off — you need a magnifying glass to find an Asian dick.

      • Maggat

        Speaking from experience?

        • Ever tried watching an Asian porn flick?

            Jeez…I thought I was the only one who noticed!
            What’s with that anyway? Talk about distracting; thank G*d for the mute button.

        Petite? A flat nose splayed across one’s face isn’t petite.

    Is this why Korean mothers commit suicide if their daughter brings home a brother?

      they should try honor killings instead

    Some dispute the accuracy of this infographic, but I’ll put it out here anyway to spur further discussion.

      Boy are YOU gonna get it, DBN!
      I’m sure there will be many people that take offence at this schematic.
      Gibbons not the least amongst them.

        I did not say the genetic science was entirely settled.
        I think the toaster should be higher up on the tree, and the baboons are likely none too happy either.

    • BillyHW

      I’m offended on behalf of toasters. Also embarrassed on behalf of toasters. I guess you can’t choose your ancestors…

      That looks like The Donald at the apex(?)
      Just sayin’… 🙂

    From the article…”China is rife with examples of tone deafness when it comes to race.”
    I truly wish more people were; for that matter. For all values of “racism”.
    It’s an industry I’d dearly love to see collapse.

    • Ho Hum

      The thing I like about the Chinese is they have no use for political correctness.

  • vwVwwVwv

    I ask myself why they do this in China?
    Is it possible that Chinese Students from
    reported about a certain “Culture” in the USA?

    The guy on the right in the picture looks like the ex president of the USA, no?

    This post and comments make me very sad. I fully understand the frustration, and anger about the blatant & vile anti-white racism that is occurring today. I feel it too. But, does that mean we have to lower ourselves, and resort to this crap? There was a time when people who commented on this site, had intellectual, and thought provoking conversations, about how to resolve the problems the west is facing. Sadly, those conversations no longer occur at BCF. The whole tone of the site has changed in the comment sections. What these vile comments tell me, is that rather than trying to come up with solutions, you have given up, and believe that your fate as a white person is sealed. Consequently, having no solutions or hope for the future, all you have left is to be as vile as the bastards who are destroying the west. It’s a tragedy on numerous levels. I refuse to think or behave this way. Thankfully, all whites aren’t racists, and nor are all blacks and Muslims.

      Sorry to upset your fragile sensibilities but everyday we’re exposed to anti white cultural marxists & their pathetic petulant perpetual victim whitey hating pets. If u weren’t a racist before the last 15 years made u one.I just can’t figure out who I loathe more the alabaster apologist enablers filled w/ white guilt or the minority scourge.

      • Jane

        I’m well aware of the anti-white crap. I am frustrated and angry about it – just as much as anyone else. But, the comments on this post are just as bad as the filth being perpetuated by anti-white racists. This approach will not solve any problems. They will only contribute to making the racial problems in our society – much worse. I repeat myself – the only thing that these comments show me, is that the whites on this post have given up, and all that’s left for them to do is behave as badly as the anti-white racists. What the f will that do for us? Absolutely nothing. Instead of acting like pigs, we should be trying to come up with solutions on how to turn things around. That was the point of my earlier post.
