    "Sarah also known as the " Hottentot Venus " was a indigenous woman taken from the Cape to Europe by her Dutch employer and put on display by an animal trainer to show off her distinct anatomy. She didn't share in the profits as she was promised and died in exile far from her motherland and tribe. After Cuvier made a plaster cast of her body, it was dissected and her organs were still on display in Musee de l Homme, Paris up till 1974. "

    "Comedy is already turning the tables on how we see development in Africa, shifting the focus from the less privileged to the privileged, shedding light on the role of the "white-savior industrial complex." Used effectively, satire can shift some attention from "doing good" to "doing less harm" and help highlight other pertinent development issues such as illegitimate foreign debt, workers' rights, weapons exports, trade imbalance and patent issues. Critical satire is a great repellent for harmful attitudes and ideas."

Clare Carter: Investigating the brutality of corrective rape in South Africa (PHOTOS). - 0 views

  •  
    "Long before LGBTQ rights were on many countries' radars, South Africa banned discrimination against gay people in 1996 and legalized same-sex marriage in 2005-the fifth country in the world to do so. Yet many gay men and lesbians in this patriarchal society face extreme and sometimes deadly discrimination. In 2008, a South African lesbian soccer player training for the World Cup was raped and murdered in a crime known as "corrective rape." The term, believed to originate in South Africa due to its prevalence there, refers to when gay men or women are raped to "cure" them of their sexual orientation; the hate crime is almost never reported or prosecuted."
