OMG!!! I FORGET PEOPLE DON’T KNOW THIS!
Yes, all those aloof, “pure” white statues from Ancient Greece?
They actually looked like this:
Vinzenz Brinkmann, much to the apparent chagrin of Westerners everywhere, used ultraviolet light to reveal the original paint schemes of these statues that the millennia had washed away.
And to underscore the Chromophobia?
"Nasa validates ‘impossible’ space drive"
Consider how many of the technologies we rely on today that were once written off as impossible, or laughed at pseudoscience (like a majority of Tesla’s inventions, including radio and the AC motor).
maybe now …open mindedness will begin to grow within the scientific community, and innovation will flourish :D
Like. There are a lot of things I could say here. But I’m just going to do my best to answer your question, and the answer is either very simple or very complicated, depending on your current point of view.
1. “They” knew what people with brown skin looked like because people with brown skin had been there literally THE ENTIRE TIME. Some (and father back, ALL) of “them” had brown skin themselves.
2. “People with Brown Skin” and “Europeans” are not separate and mutually exclusive groups.
3. No matter how far back you go, the mythical time that you’re looking for, when all-white, racially and culturally isolated Europe was “real”, will continue to recede from your grasp until it winkles out the like imaginary place it is.
We can just keep going back. In every area, from all walks of life, rich and poor, kings and peasants, artists and iconoclasts, before there were countries and continents, before there were white people.
The time when “EVERYONE” in Europe was White does not exist. They knew what people with brown skin looked like because they were there. They knew what “Africans” looked like because they were there, and they weren’t “they”, they were us, or you. I think what you’re missing is something that never existed.
WOW. What a timeline! :o
This is better than going to the seasonal section of CVS and setting off 10 animatronic holiday things all at once!
Made a #HappyBirthdayTESLA shirt —fitting that it’s also the day of the #WorldMakerFaire Town Hall Meeting @kickstarter HQ.
Hopefully I can catch the tail end of it :D.
