museumofmodernerotica asked: Maybe this is a crazy question, but how did Europeans know what Africans looked like? I know that some of the paintings here are of North Africans/Middle Easterners, but others clearly depict people born south of the Sahara. I've heard of Prester John but I never imagined that medieval Europeans were aware that Prester John would have had brown skin. Am I missing something?

medievalpoc:

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.

I was reading this aloud and started SCREAMING WHEN I GOT TO TH END NO IT IS NOT THE SAME DID YOU JUST COMPARE LOOKING SCRUFFY TO BEING BLACK????

just shut up I know you think that you’re proving an enlightening point but you are only enforcing exactly the kind of mindset that keeps that man from showing up at his daughter’s school.

The clothes you wear and your haircut are simply not the same as your skin color. People will look down on you for any of those. But you can change your clothes and your haircut. You can never change your genes. Your clothes and your haircut aren’t who you are. Being Black should not be the same as looking unprofessional. Not ever.

Basically. It’s so fucking hurtful that without a second thought so many white people instantly think it’s totally logical to compare issues of black non-acceptability in society to shit like ‘looking unkempt’.

This is exactly what we are complaining about. Why is black, by default, so easily equatable to ‘messy undesirable?’

Racism is ugly.

I don’t think she was trying to be racist I think she was just not getting it
Like I totally understand her point but she made a really bad analogy because like above peeps said race and clothing choices are veryyyy different
I think she’s stupid, not racist lol

No I agree, she’s not trying to be racist, but that’s actually the problem.

Because she literally did not see how that was a bad analogy. In her mind avoiding letting people know you’re black is the same and just as understandably acceptable as avoiding looking messy or unkempt to her.

Like it’s one thing if someone knows they are racist but when someone says something like this and thinks they are just proving a point about how something isn’t racist, it actually just proves how pervasive racism is in society, that it’s way bigger than just that person, because for no reason did this white woman think twice, she’s entirely unaware of how offensive her words are because in her mind it makes total sense.

And that my friends is the result of institutionalized racism/white supremacy.

A male marvelous spatuletail perches in a lek (an assembly area where animals carry on display and courtship behavior) near Pomacoches in northern Peru. The species gets its name from the male’s two longest tail feathers, which can be controlled independently and play a major role in the hummingbird’s courtship displays. The spatuletail is considered by many to be the world’s most spectacular hummingbird, but it is also one of the rarest. Confined to a small region in northern Peru, only 500-800 marvelous spatuletails are estimated to remain.
