The History of Trump's "Extreme Screening"--Unimaginable Torture of Blacks
Here. What the British did in Kenya in its fight against the Mau Mau is never been fully acknowledged. At Google type in "Kenya" "Mau Mau" "screening."
[T]he horror of some of the so-called Screening Camps now present a
state of affairs so deplorable that they should be investigated without
delay, so that the ever increasing allegations of inhumanity and
disregard of the rights of the African citizen are dealt with and so
that the Government will have no reason to be ashamed of the acts which
are done in its own name by its own servants.

Governor Evelyn Baring, 22 November 1954
