You know, feminism, via Beauvoir, originally grew out of existentialism. And it is true that she advocated free love, but the thing is that today, feminism is almost exclusively about money and sex. How did feminism fall from "existentialism from women" to the capitalist level of defining freedom solely in terms of money and sex?
Originally Aryan supremacy was about being the smarter master race than the Jews. But then the Jews control everything and are smarter than white people. How did Aryan supremacy go from hating Jews because they were worse to hating Jews because they are better?
How did the Romans look in terms of their physical appearance? Take into consideration when I say "Romans" I'm talking about ethnic Romans. Obviously 'Roman' could have referred to anyone being born in and a citizen of the Roman Empire, from a Arab to a Englishman.
I'm talking about the actual ethnic Romans. Were they generally a dark-featured ethnic European populace like modern-day Italians?
>>384942 Does ethnic "Romans" include their fellow Latins? Either way most Latins including the Romans and the Italics of Italy were generally tanned. Their complexions from what I understand, were fairer then the Greeks who themselves are more olive-skinned.
Also when Caesar's legions invaded Britain, the natives called them "black people" due to the natural difference between their more pale skins and complexions vs the Romans/Latins.
Otherwise all Europeans back then would've had... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>those Romans who were fair-haired preferred to dye their hair dark in the early period of Ancient Rome; at one point in time blond hair was even associated with prostitutes. The preference changed to bleaching the hair blond when Greek culture, which practiced bleaching, reached Rome, and was reinforced when the legions that conquered Gaul returned with blond slaves.
>Was Ancient Mali ruled by Arabs? No. It was ruled by a native dynasty founded by Sundjata Keita, and no Islamic writer calls them Arabs. They adopted a small amount of Islamic culture under Mansa Musa which was mostly limited to a few towns while the vast majority of the population was pagan. The Arabs/Berbers in Mali were basically just merchants and maybe a few scholars or artisans brought in by the rulers.
>They seemed to have major influence. They were rich but not very impressive.
Hey there /his/, need a little help. My university is requiring all students to take Philosophy (even though I'm a film production student myself). We're supposed to put together a proposal for an oral discussion for our final. Just to have a little fun, I decided to argue against moral ethics. Here's what I have so far:
Thesis: We are not obligated to seek truth, therefore moral ethics are irrelevant.
*Whether we follow good or bad ethics, we are still regarded as human beings; following or not following the teachings of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>using a poorly-defined folk saying as an example >using Trump being similar to Hitler as an example when you do this, you are practically inviting someone to pick at your examples. Those aren't commonly held facts, they are your opinions and the first things that come to your mind. You may want to find something that is more firmly accepted to base your arguments around

No The modern Egyptians are the same people for the most part as the ancient ones. There were probably some black people in Egypt, but nowhere near a majority and there were some black pharaohs, but that's it.
>>384633 A) It's not a fucking ice age anymore. B) They were also stocky like a saber tooth tiger because they were ambush predators. They would wait behind a rock or a tree and then jump out and get up close and personal with the animals they intended to stab to death.
>>384388 Sea people didn't fuck up anybody that hard. They struck at a time when the climate was being shitty for agriculture and in turn they helped trigger a systematic collapse of Bronze Age era trade and central governance.
The only people who forgot to read and write were the Greeks, Luwians, Egyptians, Assyrians/Summerians retained their literacy.
Greeks lost the ability because only a small number of people were probably literate in the first place. With the collapse of their society there was no way... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
He's entertaining and he raises some interesting points about some things. However, he's not actually a historian or archaeologist. He has a degree in archaeology, but he's only worked in film production and as a dance instructor as far as I know, and it shows. He's one of my favorite youtubers, but he can't be seen as an authoritative source on most of the stuff he talks about.
