They tried rampaging through Europe and killing every white person they found in cold blood – men, innocent women and even children. Until they pissed off the French, they stopped playing nice and the Dahomey savages were wiped out with more of the modern weapons they stole from white people.
We aren’t taught this in school, the brutality etc.
“swift decapitation was their trademark.”
Picture a topless African woman severing the head of a small white Victorian child.
Bad for propaganda purposes.
Plus, they were like, really black.
African men hiding behind their women, as always. It wasn’t Africans who typically fought the Whites, it was the women. Women also tended to start rebellions, including in Asia.
In the Spring of 1863, the British explorer Richard Burton arrived in the west african coastal nation of Dahomey on a mission for the British government, trying to make peace with the Dahomey people. The Dahomey were a warring nation who actively participated in the slave trade, turning it to their advantage as they captured and sold their enemies. But it was the elite ranks of Dahomey female warriors that amazed Burton.
“Such was the size of the female skeleton and the muscular development of the frame that in many cases, femininity could be detected only by the bosom.”
He’s a total perv.
Burton gave the army the nickname of “Black Sparta”.
Told ya. Either he doesn’t understand what Sparta was (a culture) or that’s the fetish talking (it’s the fetish talking).
And this is a nice picture.
“A French delegation visiting Dahomey in 1880s reported witnessing an Amazon girl of about sixteen during training.”
They misuse the term Amazon, Ancient Amazonians were European, possibly East Asian, never African.
“The records note that she took three swings of the machete before completely removing the head of a prisoner. She wiped the blood from her sword and swallowed it. Her fellow Amazons screamed in frenzied approval. It was customary in the region as warriors of the time to return home with their heads and genitals of opponents.”
“They all had slaves too.”
“Uniformed French soldiers who took Dahomey women to bed were often found dead in the morning, their throats slit open.”
I guess they weren’t all bad.
Hey, everyone has their limit.
