the concept that white Europeans would be living in caves, grunting to communicate and eating raw meat unless black Africans taught them a better way. The Greeks, Persians, Babylonians had no culture until they learned it from Africans. Many historical characters Europeans think were white were really black. Until invaded by Europeans or Arabs, all Africans were black, including the Egyptians and Carthaginians.
