In 1905 the United States had a human zoo at New York’s Coney Island. Americans would come to see women and children in animal pens surviving as exhibits without dignity (some naked).
The children were also placed in cages for petting and touching. Artificial replicas of their traditional habitats were created so visitors could have an authentic experience.
There were also men in the zoo’s.
Some Filipino women were forced into marriage with Americans, which is a form of continuous legal rape without age limits.
Some of the people who died were not properly buried just thrown away.
Some suffered from starvation.
Eventually the US government shut down human Zoo’s.
