Sisters, google Sarah Bartman and read her story.  Just a hint, she is the original big booty video vixen!  Let me know what you think and how it has related to the plight of the black woman and the way we think of ourselves physically, emotionally and sexually - - past and present.  This will be a very interesting conversation.

 So I just went to Wikipedia and they have her listed as Sarah Baartman. Her story is sad. It's messed up how they treated her like a circus freak just because she had a big butt and an enlongated labia.

they called her a freak show because of how far her booty stuck out. Her experiences were horrid they made her out to be some circus side show type. Tbh I still feel as though our bodies are still exploited not to the degree of Ms. Sarah Bartman but in the way that its some what of a cutural norm for our woman to put it on display as the best they have to offer. For example majority of our single women aren't in their college libraries trying to make an intellectual connection but let college night come around they all got dressed in ways that movements will expose thier cracks just to get attention. To me past and present its  almost no different than the use of the n word it started off as a way for them degrade us and now all of a sudden its cool to be used to degrade ourselves.
