In the 19th century under White colonial rule, cannibalism fell into disuse, but since the mid-20th century, following the retreat of the White Man from Africa, the Negro has been returning to his old patterns.
African cannibalism seems to fall into three categories that I have noticed:
(1) cannibalism in war — “Anybody who is your enemy, you can eat him,” says a young Liberian;
(2) use of body parts (especially from albinos) in “traditional medicine”;
(3) eating of Pygmies because Negroes consider them subhuman.
“Traditional medicine” in South Africa.
