A brief analysis of color based racism’s history

Racism has scarred our modern day world. It has been the cause of the death of untold millions and helped perpetuate chattel slavery into a socio-economic institution that lasted for almost 1000 years.

As we look at history we see that racism as we know it has not always existed.  In ancient times the ideal of slavery was not connected to skin color. Today when you hear the word slave you automatically picture a Black African in chains. The irony of this is the fact that the word slave comes from the Greek sklabos  used to describe the Slavic laborers of Byzantium and later from the medieval Latin root “sclavus”  the Latinized name of the Slavic tribes of Eastern Europe.  By the 10th century in Europe pagan Slavic peoples were sold in slave markets from Dublin to Prague to Marseilles. Historians suggest Slavic slavery underpinned the economic growth of Europe in the 9th and 10th centuries just as the trans Atlantic slave trade would later fuel the economic growth of America. There is evidence when the Bubonic plague killed off 1/3 of Europe’s population the need for laborers began to shift to a concentration on Black Africans as a source of slave labor.  The Arabs supplied many of the Slavic slaves to Europe and the Middle East and having been exposed to African slavery by Muslims Portugal was the 1st European country to import African slaves  into Europe. This was brought but a trickle of Africans into Europe but it is the beginning of the shift to Africans becoming the sole source of slave labor. When the new world was discovered Europeans attempted to enslave the native Americans 1st but were unsuccessful. The Native Americans died off as a result of the brutality of the Europeans and others easily escaped into the well known forest of their native lands easily evading capture. The Europeans began importing Africans into the new world to work the fields and plantations and as they say -the rest is history .

As stated todays negative view of Black people did not exist in ancient times.  As the early 20th century historian John Clark Ridpath wrote:

In Greek times, the Egyptians depicted Ethiopia as an ideal state. The Puranas, the ancient historical books of India, speak of the civilization of Ethiopia as being older than that of Egypt. These Sanskrit books mention the names of old Cushite kings that were worshipped in India and who were adopted and changed to suit the fancy of the later people of Greece and Rome.” –this quote is not only doubly but three times indicative of ancient attitudes towards Black peoples. For one It speaks to the Greek attitude towards Black Africans. Secondly it speaks to ancient India’s ties with Black Africans and third it shows John C. Ridpath found so much evidence of Black Africans prominence that even in a time when scientific racialism was rampant he could not deny what history had shown Blacks to truly be.

herodotus-bust The father of history Herodotus wrote:  ” The Ethiopians to whom this embassy was sent are said to be the tallest and handsomest men in the whole world”

So when did  color 1st begin to be a marker of inferiority and the positive view of Black Africans adultered to the negative image we see today?  As stated over all the ancient view of Black Africans was positive but we do see strikingly close similarities to what could be viewed as racism in some ancient cultures. The Hindu Vedas are the 1st ancient BCE text that stand out as illustrating an apparent bias towards dark skin.  Are the Hindu Vedas referring to race is a subject long debated. The text I have read seem to clearly indicate a higher status of one group as opposed to another and displays one group as “dusky” or “Black” skinned as compared to another  “fair complexioned” group.

Examples are :

Rg Veda
Hymn100- verse 18  “He, much invoked, hath slain Dasyus and Śimyus, after his wont, and laid them low with arrows.
The mighty Thunderer with his fair-complexioned friends won the land, the sunlight, and the waters.

and Rg Veda

Hymn130 verse 8- “Indra in battles help his Āryan worshipper, he who hath hundred helps at hand in every fray, in frays that win the light of heaven. Plaguing the lawless he gave up to Manu’s seed the dusky skin “.

Krishna & Radhal

There are many other examples that can be interpreted as speaking to the skin color of the Daysus and the Aryan combatants. Krishna ( which means black or the “blue black”) does battle with these “fair skinned” Arya through out the Rg Veda. The word Varna means color and India’s caste system is called the Varna system. I am not alone in believing these to be the root to India’s color consciousness and that the Vedic Varna/Caste system is an ancient form of apartheid that  helped relegate the darker aboriginals primarily to the lower caste. One can argue if the Vedas are referring to color or not when they speak of  black people (krsnagarbha) or skin (tvácaṃ )  but one cannot argue the fact the Vedas are speaking about one group of people conquering and enslaving another group of people they have labeled as demons and animals. India later had these Hindu beliefs compounded and manipulated by the British when they colonized India.

The next epoch in color based racism we see takes place when Arabs initiate the Arab slave trade. This abomination lasted in various forms from 650 AD  far into the 20th century (only having been outlawed in the 1960’s.) Here we begin to clearly see the role slavery and subjugation play in dehumanizing a people. With in the extra Koranic sayings attributed to Muhammad in the Hadith you have derogatory statements such as – :“Allah’s Apostle said “You should listen to and obey your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian slave who head looks like a raisin” 

Sahih Bukhari 9:89:256

The Prophet said, “Listen and obey (your chief) even if an Ethiopian whose head is like a raisin were made your chief.”

Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, the companion of Sahnun said, “Anyone who says that the Prophet was black should be killed.”
Ibn Musa al-Yahsubi, Qadi ‘Iyad, p.375”

One of the main justifications used by Arabs for the enslavement of Black Africans was the “Curse of Ham”. This is an adulterated version of the Biblical story in Genesis where Noah cursed Ham’s son Canaan.  The original story in Genesis chapter 9 reads:

“20 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: 21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. 22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. 23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness. 24 ¶ And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. 25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. 26 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. 27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.”

Noah-Curses-Progeny

There is no “Curse of Ham” Noah cursed Ham’s son Canaan. Canaan is the biblical progenitor of the Canaanite people who occupied the area of modern day Palestine.  Also Noah never mentioned skin color.

 It was the Jews who created the misnomer of the “Curse of Canaan” story between 200 C.E and 500 C.E in the Babylonian Talmud (which contains many other morally controversial sayings) adulterating and renaming it “The Curse of Ham”. Why the Jews 1st created this pseudo biblical myth is unknown. Unlike the Arya of India they were not conquering a darker people and unlike Europeans or Arabs they were not enslaving solely Black Africans at the time they wrote the Talmud. The Talmudic writings puzzle me. The only thing that is obvious is that the so called “curse of Ham” attacks all the nations that oppressed the Jews save one. The “curse of Ham”  attacks Hams son Canaan thus all the Canaanite peoples(we call most of them Palestinians today),Mizraim(Egypt), Cush’s(Ethiopia) son Nimrod who in the Bible founded the city of  Babel thus the Babylonian empire. Babylon in turn gave rise to Assyria and Persia. As soon as the Hebrews make it to the promise land Israel is in constant conflict with various nations of Canaanite people. Babylon and Egypt enslaved the Hebrews and  Assyria conquered and exiled the Jews from Jerusalem. Jews fared better under the Persian king Cyrus but nonetheless were still a subjugated people. 

The curse of Ham does not attack the Romans who had Israel under its thumb for centuries but there are other Talmudic writings attacking Gentiles in general. When the story of Noah was written the major group threatening the Hebrews/Israel were the Canaanites. This is probably why in the bible verse Ham saw Noah drunk and naked but Noah cursed Hams son Canaan not Ham. One could speculate that since the Jews were enslaved by the descendants of Ham Mizraim or Egypt and the Babylonians who descend from Ham’s son Nimrod). The Jews may have enacted a grudge on Hams lineage while writing the Talmud. Arabs later (by 700 CE) would use the curse of Ham myth to justify the enslavement of Black Africans. Arabs even expanded upon the already adulterated  story and apparently creating negative pseudo biblical stories of their own:

“Shem, the son of Noah was the father of the Arabs, the Persians, and the Greeks; Ham was the father of the Black Africans; and Japheth was the father of the Turks and of Gog and Magog who were cousins of the Turks. Noah prayed that the prophets and apostles would be descended from Shem and kings would be from Japheth. He prayed that the African’s color would change so that their descendants would be slaves to the Arabs and Turks.”
Al-Tabari, Vol. 2, p. 11, p. 11
“Ham [Africans] begat all those who are black and curly-haired, while Japheth [Turks] begat all those who are full-faced with small eyes, and Shem [Arabs] begat everyone who is handsome of face with beautiful hair. Noah prayed that the hair of Ham’s descendants would not grow beyond their ears, and that whenever his descendants met Shem’s, the latter would enslave them.”
Al-Tabari, Vol. 2, p. 21, p. 21”

“”Abu Darda reported that the Holy Prophet said: “Allah created Adam when he created him (sic). Then He stroke (sic) his right shoulder and took out a white race as if they were seeds, and He stroke (sic) his left shoulder and took out a black race as if they were coals. Then He said to those who were in his right side: Towards paradise and I don’t care. He said to those who were on his left shoulder: Towards Hell and I don’t care”. – Ahmad
Mishkat, Vol. 3, p. 117
Sadly these are just a few of the many racist quotes with in early Islamic literature. I am extremely grateful none are with in the Koran. Other Arabs during medieval  times wrote:

Al-Muqaddasi (945/946-1000) was a medieval Muslim geographer wrote:
“Of the neighbors of the Bujja, Maqdisi had heard that “there is no marriage among them; the child does not know his father, and they eat people — but God knows best. As for the Zanj, they are people of black color, flat noses, kinky hair, and little understanding or intelligence.”

I must note Al-Muqaddasi  and other Arab writers with derogatory views on Blacks never traveled to Africa. Al-Muqaddasi  only visited the Islamic East. He and other Arab medieval writers clearly were projecting their view of Black slaves upon all of Black Africa.  It was also a custom of Arab traders to tell horrid,terrifying stories about Africa to other merchants so that other would not be tempted to venture into Africa on their own and create their own trade connections.  Blacks and Arabs in the East African coastal trading towns did this to help maintain their monopoly on trade for African goods.  

When you read the opinion from someone who actually visited the African lands he talks about you hear a totally different picture.

IbnBattuta  -Ibn Battuta writes:

We … traveled by sea to the city of Kulwa [Kilwa in East Africa]…Most of its people are Zunuj, extremely black…The city of Kulwa is amongst the most beautiful of cities and most elegantly built… Their uppermost virtue is religion and righteousness and they are Shafi’i in rite.”

Then I reached [a West African town]. This town had as its governor an excellent man, a pilgrim called Farba Sulaiman, well known for his bravery and tenacity…An Arab slave girl of his from Damascus came in to us. She was an Arab and spoke to me in Arabic.”

“[the people of Iwalatan in West Africa] were generous to me and entertained me…and as for their women — they are extremely beautiful and are more important than the men”

“Another of [the Malli blacks’] good qualities is their concern for learning the sublime Qur’an by heart…One day I passed a handsome youth from them dressed in fine clothes and on his feet was a heavy chain. I said to the man who was with me, ‘What has this youth done — has he killed someone?’ The youth heard my remark and laughed. It was told me, ‘He has been chained so that he will learn the Qu’ran by heart.'”

-Ibn Battuta

So here we see the drastic contrast between a person who actually traveled to the lands and met the people he wrote about and the varied Arabs who had never been in contact with Black African cultures and wrote only using the demeaning descriptions others relayed to them.  Another dynamic we see in Arab racism is the need to justify the brutal, ungodly and unrighteous treatment they have heaped upon Blacks by dehumanizing Africans.  As my earlier quotes display, Arabs even used twisted religious scripture and false parables using biblical character’s to justify enslaving Africans. Later Europeans would do the same. Almost all of the European racial stereotypes appeared previously in Arab racist attitudes. It may be possible that many of  Western Europe’s early attitudes towards Blacks were shaped by Arabs but it is clear the religious justifications such as the curse of Ham mirror each other. I’d like to note that the Bible speaks of no curse on Ham but rather his son Canaan.This and the fact according to biblical historiography Canaan descendents lived in Asia Minor illustrates the stretch the creators of “the curse of Ham” had to take to place a theological causation for the Black Africans plight. Today Africans find themselves in a self fulfilling negative prophecy. Due to a millennia of being ravaged by slavery and colonization Africa is poor and struggling . In many parts of Africa despotic regimes rule killing their own citizens and causing starvation for the rest. Outsiders look at this and see all of the negative stereotypes being displayed. What began as lies and derogatory exaggeration has manifested its self into a reality in some parts of Africa. Today many Black Africans and Africans of the diaspora display many of the negative stereotypes applied to them. This the long term effects of racist dogma coupled with brutal, continuous, systemic oppression. Centuries of negative treatment has caused Blacks to internalize this negative self view into their culture.

The oppressor group has internalized behavior based in racism as well. Recent studies point to biological and neural changes that occur when Caucasians see images of dark skinned people

AmygRaceDiversity

Whether if this is natural reaction based in genetic evolution, a learned reaction based in a racist culture or a combination of both is still in question. One dynamic that is apparent in every case where there is a significant minority existing within a larger dominant majority there is a history of oppression. The dominant groups attitude towards the oppressed are that traits such as “criminal behavior, being unemployed and having low intelligence” are inherent not a result of the oppressive environment. In fact the dominant group rarely views their treatment of the minority group as oppression. Today some minority groups have a strong enough and positive enough culture to still function fairly well in spite of living in an oppressive society but if you examine these groups history you will find they have suffered greatly at the hands of oppressive societies. The Jews strong, positive and rich culture could do nothing in the face of an extreme Nazi assault on life and liberty. Pundits such as Dinesh D’souza pioint to culture alone as the causation of Black failure in society. They negate the existence of modern day racism and do not factor in the psychological effects of 300 plus years of slavery and 100 years of American apartheid(Jim Crow). Again this is another example of the oppressor blaming the oppressed for their condition. D’Souza has pointed out that he is of East Indian heritage as if this gives him sort of “pass” to speak on and or insight into African American problems. As I alluded to earlier the East Indian Hindu Vedas carry if not racist an “anti-dark skin” message. D’Souza was raised by parents who are descendent from Goa Catholics. Goa Catholics superimposed Catholicism on top of their native Hindu beliefs. As recently as the 1960’s Goan’s have struggled with their Indian identity having been Westernized by the Portuguese who converted Goan Indians in 1510. So in D’Souza we have an East Indian American Republican Christian/Hindu born in a culture that historically has ethnic identity issues, a man that was more than likely taught the Aryan Invasion theory as he grew up drumming a color and caste system complex into his head. This is the man who penned “The End of Racism”. Unfortunately D’Souza is not alone in this line of thought. Many Whites truly feel racism no longer exist. This is one of the new hurdles Black people have to overcome. The fact they live in a society that has set obstacles in place for them that non Blacks cant or refuse to see. The one thing Black Africans have on their side is history. I point to the tribes of Gaul who were forced from their lands by invading Huns. The Gauls migrated towards Rome to seek refuge from The Hunnish hordes. Rome over taxed the Gauls and treated them as inferiors. It is said Romans made the starving Gauls sell their women and children into slavery for dog meat.

Soon after, high taxes, Roman prejudice, and government corruption turned them against the Empire” -Wiki

This is why the barbarians smashed the gates of Rome. Whether if it’s the common people of 18th century France, the serfs and workers of pre Soviet Russia or the colonist of  the American revolution, oppressed people will always rise shrugging of the yoke that afflicts them. I hope in this more enlightened era the people of the world can learn to truly respect their fellow humans with out the need for violent struggle to bring that respect about.

    The racialized (mis)translations of the Vedas come from a time when pale west Asians (a/k/a white Europeans) were trying to transfer their origin myth from Semitic scripture and lore to another source, due to anti-Semitism and secular/atheist thought.

    I’ve found at least one translator who has directly addressed this.

    “If you believe Griffith’s or even Jamison and Brereton’s translation (Oxford Univ. Press,
    2014), the Rigveda is a racist document. [This is] a mistranslation, leading to a completely unjust
    accusation.”

      • It does seem. Naomi Campbell once testified that diamonds seem like dirty rocks.

        Western term “caste” conflates two very different concepts known to all Hindus: Varna, “colour/category”, the four classes typical of any complex society, with counterparts in other cultures; and Jati, “birth-group”, the thousands of endogamous communities, an institution stretching deep into tribal society and largely existing even among Indian Christians and Muslims. When tribes were integrated into expanding Vedic society, they were allowed to retain their distinctive mores and especially the continuation of their separateness through endogamy. Thus, as low-caste leader Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar observed, tribes became castes. This was an application of the principle of non-violence: integration without hurting the pre-existing group identity. The entry Caste vaguely nods towards this principle of historicity, and it gives examples of how people in the Vedic age chose their own professions regardless of what their families had been doing. But it might have discussed the need for historicity more pointedly, especially as this topic is so controversial and much in need of clarification.

        Caste (Varna) signifies “colour”, but it is not certain whether the reference is to be given a physical or mythological application. The first three castes were Aryans, the fairest people; the fourth caste, that comprising the dark-skinned aborigines, was non-Aryan. “Arya”, however, was not always used in the sense that we have been accustomed to apply “Aryo-Indian”. In one of the sacred books of the ancient people it is stated: “The colour of the Brahmans was white; that of the Kshatriyas red; that of the Vaisyas yellow; and that of the Sudras black”. 1 This colour reference connects “caste” with the doctrine of yugas, or ages of the universe (Chapter VI).

      • So you admit savages had whites as slaves for over 700 years IN OUR OWN COUNTRIES, and we’re supposed to “forget” that, sweep it under the table…but when whites have savages as slaves for 150 years, THAT is “oppression”, and people talk about the horrible “Karma” that’s coming the whites’ way.
        If “Karma” is real and enforced by God/the universe/etc., that sounds like whites should look FORWARD to it!
        Putting savages back in slavery for another 550 years, being able to walk down any street in America, without worrying about thugs with no self-control killing us for our shoes, for being women, in “revenge” for other thugs dying of the surprise their prey fought back when trying to rob THEIR betters!

        Whites DO feel racism no longer exists. We’ve served our sentence, though we committed no crime.

        Savages that want to overthrow one white country after another, that commit 7X more crime than their increasingly unwilling “hosts”, are not only treated as the EQUALS of their betters, including being allowed to vote for things that benefit them to the detriment of the country as a whole, but even have Government enforced advantages in getting into undeserved positions in schools&employment!

        So when savages tell us that they’re being “oppressed”, it rings hollow at the VERY best!
        At worse, it sounds like the savages are gearing up for a new round of demands. What more undeserved advantages should we give these parasites? Hell, what more undeserved advantages CAN we give these parasites? A card that allows them to rob, rape, and murder X number of times without punishment?

      • your world view is utterly warped. The civilized African you erroneously call savage ruled the Iberian peninsula for 700 years bringing culture & a higher standard of living. Western Europeans enslaved eastern Europeans & the slaves Africans & Arabs had were treated far more humanly than Europeans ever treated their African counter parts. I find it difficult to address anything else you wrote because its a horribly twisted rendition of the facts. The Babylonians & Romans of antiquity had the same attitude towards the Jews & Germanic tribes they oppressed & enslaved.

  2. Here’s some further context around the racialization of the Vedas:

    “Until the Enlightenment, of course, biblical tradition had been assumed to be the ultimate authority on the origin and history of humanity, that origin being Mount Ararat on which Noah’s Ark made landfall after the Deluge. This idea made sense even to those scientists of the Enlightenment who rejected biblical authority, since mountainous regions would have provided the only possible protection against natural disasters such as the putative prehistoric flood. The German Romantics were greatly attracted to Oriental philosophy and mysticism, in particular the Zend-Avesta, the sacred text of the ancient Persians. Thinkers of the calibre of Goethe, Nietzsche, Arthur Schopenhauer and Richard Wagner found in the Orient a system of philosophy and historiography that allowed them to abandon the unsatisfactory world view of Judeo-Christianity. (2) As Joscelyn Godwin notes, allied with this admiration for the Orient was a rediscovery of the German Volk, the pre-Christian Teutonic tribes whose descendants, the Goths, had brought about the final destruction of the decadent Roman Empire. The problem faced by the German Romantics was how to forge a historical connection between themselves and the Orient, which they considered to be the cradle of humanity and the origin of the highest human ideals. (43)

    Of course, in order to establish and strengthen the link between the Germans and the Orient, Hebrew had to be abandoned as the original language of humanity, to be replaced by Sanskrit, the language of classical Hinduism. Instrumental in the forging of this link was the classical scholar Friedrich von Schlegel (1772-1829), who attempted to establish a historical and cultural contact between the Indians and the Scandinavians through which the Scandinavian languages could have been influenced by the Indian. Schlegel solved this problem by supposing that the ancient Indians had travelled to the far north as a result of their veneration for the sacred mountain, Meru, which they believed to constitute the spiritual centre of the world. It was actually Schlegel who coined the term ‘Aryan’ in 1819 to denote a racial group (as opposed to a group of people speaking the Proto-Indo-European language, which is the proper definition of the term). Schlegel took the word ‘Aryan’, which had already been borrowed from Herodotus (who had used the word Arioi to describe the people of Media, an ancient western Asian country in what is now northern Iran) and applied to the ancient Persians, and connected it spuriously with the German word Ehre, meaning honour. At that point, the word ‘Aryan’ came to denote the highest, purest and most honourable racial group.” (4) This historical scheme was added to by other thinkers such as the anti-Semitic Christian Lassen, who claimed that the Indo-Germans were inherently biologically superior to the Semites. (45)

    In their desire to rediscover the ultimate mythical and cultural roots of their self-designated master race, the proponents of Aryanism turned away from the heat of the biblical Mesopotamian Eden and looked instead to the cool and pristine fastness of the Far North. (46)”

    I copied from the PDF (hence page number references), but the book is available online, which is the link I posted above.

    You see where this is going, right?

    • yeah i believe so. alot of information here. If im nit mistaken your post is about how European scientific racialist(in paticular the proponents of Aryanism) attached themselves to the Vedic tradition and have played a part in establishing the modern sence of racism & color bias on the Indian sub continent.
      I believe Indias colorism roots lie in the so called Aryan invasions. I say so called because there is much debate on how the Aryan (Arya) people came into India but it definitely coincided with severe climatic changes that weakened the original Aboriginal Harrappan civilizations & forced the Arya from the areas of Turkmenistan due to drought & famine http://archaeologyonline.net/artifacts/aryan-harappan-myth
      I see it as this- A new more war like people (Arya) moves into the area occupied by the peaceful more civilized Harrapans/Mohenjo-Dorro peoples & as Rg Veda
      Hymn100- verse 18 states “He, much invoked, hath slain Dasyus and Śimyus, after his wont, and laid them low with arrows.
      The mighty Thunderer with his fair-complexioned friends won the land, the sunlight, and the waters.“ ie: take the best parts of the land for themselves. Europeans & Arabs twisted biblical verses to justify the enslavement of Blacks. In the Vedas you see the Arya doing something similar to justify their taking land from the people they call Dasyus or Dasa which just happens to mean slave in Sanskrit. When European Aryanist abandoned their view of Hebrew as the original language in favor of Sanskrit they were just moving from one fallacy to another point being that ancient Egyptian,Sumerian & Nubian are all older than both Hebrew & Sanskrit. This is a very hot topic especially amongst East Indians who have long had conflicts amongst the southern Tamil speakers & Northern Sanskrit language based speakers

      • What do you think about Blacks hijacking others’ cultural narratives to serve them?
        Blacks are the “TRUE” Israelites, the “TRUE” Mexicans, even the “TRUE” Native American savages–then demanding freebies for the “oppression” THOSE groups suffered?

        Of course, it’s ALWAYS race that drives this “oppression”, right? Never say, consequences for their own negative actions?
        Could not POSSIBLY be that the Moslem Cult just wants to wipe EVERYONE out and calls itself “The Cult Of Peace” when their betters fight back–and everyone falls for it?
        Could not POSSIBLY be that Mexicans fucked up their own country and invaded ours for the last 160 years, right? (AFTER losing a war they started, getting paid $28 MILLION back when that was a lotta money, not a 2-year down-payment on a basketball-playing rapist, and PROMISING to stay out of OUR LANDS!)
        Could not POSSIBLY be that the savages fed us–much is made of THAT part–in exchange for protection from stronger savages, and once the stronger savages had been subdued the weaker ones turned on us and were shocked that we could subdue them too, right?

        However, I guess I CAN believe that Blacks are the TRUE American Indian savages. Treaty after treaty, concession after concession, and always some “tribe” rises up, rapes, murders, and burns down our people and our property, but we’re the bad guys if we don’t adhere to a treaty the savages didn’t feel unduly bound by, right?

      • My site consist of academically verifiable research. Isrealites came out of Egypt a genetically mixed people. African dna markers dating back to biblical periods can be found in many Jews today. This however is not saying Blacks as in African Americans are tye true Isrealites. Thats not an argument im making. Blacks being the true Mexicans is something ive never heard so my opinion on that is that it sounds rediculous. Black Aboriginals reached the new world before the Mongloid Indian & before the Siberian Caucasoid type over 50k years ago but as for Blacks being the true Indian again this is not an argument I make.
        As for oppression the facts are that the European has done terrible things to native peoples throughout the world & the laws of nature & the universe can only bring action to correct these wrongs.
