A Nigerian man has called out a Chinese museum over perceived racial abuse.
The man, Edward E. Duke, posted a video of some photos displayed in the gallery of 首都博物馆 the capital museum in Wuhan, China. He pointed the attention of media houses to the brazen racial abuse portrayed in the photos via Instagram.
In the gallery were hung photos of wild animals, framed alongside those of black-skinned people. The photo of a lion which appeared to be growling in the photo was framed alongside the photo of a man with a similar expression, a chimpanzee with its mouth opened wide was framed alongside a child who appeared to have a similar expression, photos of other animals were also framed side by side with those of humans wearing similar expressions. All the human characters appeared to be of African origin.
“首都博物馆 the capital museum in Wuhan, China put pictures of a particular race next to wild animals why? Are they the only race to have impoverished looking,” Duke wrote as a caption to his video post.
