This #MRasheedCartoons image was inspired by more foreign white racists of the middling ranks, passionately spewing their white supremacist propaganda about how it was the whites who brought the world civilization. The historical record doesn't support this at all, of course, with the most revealing aspects of that history being the rather recent parts of that history -- the transitional period where we find writings of the Euro-tribesmen themselves casually admitting to the truths their fellows would later commit to covering up. Some of my favorite of these quotes are listed below:
"The fame of the ancient Ethiopians (ancient Kushites) was widespread in ancient history. Herodotus described them as the most beautiful and long-lived of the human races, and before Herodotus, Homer, in even more flattering language, described them as the most just of men, the favourites of the gods. The annals of all the great early nations of Asia Minor are full of them. The Mosaic records allude to them frequently; but while they are described as the most powerful, the most just, and the most beautiful of the human race, they are constantly spoken of as Black, and there seems to be no other conclusion to be drawn than at that remote period of history, the leading race of the Western World was a Black race." ~Dame Flora Louise Shaw, Lady Lugard (19 Dec 1852 – 25 Jan 1929)
"The accident of white predominance should not give us supercilious ideas about color or persuade us to listen to superficial theories about the innate superiority of the white skinned man. 4 thousand years ago when civilization was already 3 thousand years old, white men were a bunch of semi- savages on the outskirts of the civilized world." ~Joseph Martin McCabe (12 Nov 1867 – 10 Jan 1955)
"For the first two or three thousand years of civilization, there was not a civilized white man on the earth. Civilization was founded and developed by the "swarthy" races of Mesopotamia, Syria and Egypt, and the white race remained so barbaric that in those days an Egyptian or a Babylonian priest would have said that the riffraff of white tribes a few hundred miles to the north of their civilization were hopelessly incapable of acquiring the knowledge requisite to progress. It was southern colored peoples everywhere, in China, in Central America, in India, Mesopotamia, Syria, Egypt and Crete who gave the northern white peoples civilization." ~William Montgomery Brown (04 Sep 1855 – 31 Oct 1937)
"Europeans were by no means the pioneers of human civilization. Half of man's recorded history had passed before anyone in Europe could read or write. The priests of Egypt began to keep written records between 4000 and 3000 B.C., but more than two thousand years later the poems of Homer were still being circulated in the Greek city-states by word of mouth. Shortly after 3000 B.C., while the Pharoahs were building the first pyramids, Europeans were creating nothing more distinguished than huge garbage heaps." ~Robert Roswell Palmer (11 Jan 1909 – 11 Jun 2002) & Joel G. Colton (23 Aug 1918 – 17 Apr 2011)
“They [the white Europeans] are nearer to animals than men […] They are by nature unthinking and their manners crude. Their bellies protrude; their color is White and their hair is long. In sharpness and delicacy of spirit and intellectual perspicacity they are nil. Ignorance, lack of reasoning power and boorishness are common among them.” ~Basil Risbridger Davidson (9 Nov 1914 – 9 Jul 2010)
