This has nothing to do with history because evildoer don;t know anything about history, he avoided answering to historical replies and constantly resorting to political ones.

This thread is closed because it has strayed too far from its original topic and into political-type discussions.

Evildoer, for the most part, nationality based on race (biological definition) is a modern concept. The ancient concept of barbarian was based on cultural aspects, not biological ones. I would say that even if Aristotle made some comments otherwise, it would be a fringe one. At least ancient views on biological classification were nothing compared to the ones in the early modern period, where such perspectives were encouraged for science. In the ancient world, you were a barbarian if your culture was backwater. If you change your culture to Roman/Chinese/Persian etc, then you were no longer barbarian. The Roman Emperor Septimius Severus was black and descended from barbaric berber tribes in africa. I hope we all know how foreign conquereors of China all sinicized themselves as legitimate Chinese dynasties by adopting its culture.

If you want to continue this discussion, let's start a new topic.
