Scientific proof that there were no

White/Albino people in "Ancient" Europe:

But there WAS Black Vikings.


 

This title thesis will be proven using the study: "Derived immune and ancestral pigmentation alleles in a 7,000-year-old Mesolithic European" and related materials. But before going into that, let us first re-visit what the Albinos have been feeding us all our lives.

 

They told us that they were "Original Man".

 

But if that were true, Human-kind would have died away, even before it started

Being Albinos, they have no defense against the Sun.

Eventually Sunburn will Kill, as will Skin Cancer!

 

 

 

They told us they were the Egyptians:

 

 

 

They told us they were the Jews:

 

 

 

They told us they were the Persians:

 

 

 

Mostly they hung their hats on being Greeks and Romans: because they knew the Egyptian thing was a "stretch", what with all of those "Authentic" statues showing them to be Black. But what made impersonating Greeks and Romans so attractive, is that those cultures are considered to be the foundations of European culture, so that meant that Albinos could "Masquerade" as the creators of European culture! WATCH THE PROGRESSION!

 

They told us they were the Greeks

 

But the ancient Greeks didn't look like Central Asian Albinos,

they looked like everyday Black people.

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

Today Black Men and Women still use the ancient Hairstyles.

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They told us that they were Mycenaean's

 

 

THEN THE FAKES BEGAN!

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

For the wary who might ask: how do we really know that these are Albino FAKES?

Simple really, often in making their fakes, the Albinos are careless and forget that these artifacts are supposed to be "OLD".

The bronze head of an Albino female above, is supposed to be from 300 B.C.

It's over 2,300 years old, yet it looks like it was just made YESTERDAY!

BECAUSE IT WAS!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When you know what to look for, the Albinos duplicity becomes obvious.

 

 

 

 

 

So if these White people who currently inhabit Europe and North America AREN'T "Original Man" nor the descendants of Ancient Egyptians, Persians, Greeks nor Romans: then who or what, are they? They prefer to be called "White" people. And just as in the period of ignorance for Black people, when Black people preferred euphemism for their real name and turned to another language to describe themselves: Negro (Spanish word for Black). So too is the truth for White peoples preferred name - which is "White": (Etymology of Albino: it comes from the Latin word (Albus, which = White) = Portuguese & Spanish (Albo + ino/ine), which = White.

 

Though they refuse to accept the truth,

Europeans are scientifically and medically Albinos:

matching the clinical and scientific definitions of Albino in every way.

 

 

 

Note that the features they describe themselves by, and for which they are the most proud, (Pale skin, Blonde hair, Blue Eyes), are also the "Classic" symptoms of Albinism.

In addition to all the other lies the Albinos have come up with, they also claim to be the "Original" Europeans. Let us now debunk that lie:

 

Study: Cranial Discrete Traits in a Byzantine Population and Eastern Mediterranean Population Movements" (2008):

we use the scientific Study "Cranial Discrete Traits in a Byzantine Population and Eastern Mediterranean Population Movements" (2008): which traces the first Africans entering and passing through the Middle East, then moving onward to Anatolia and then into Europe. Quote: This finding is in agreement with morphological data that suggest that populations with sub-Saharan morphological elements were present in northeastern Africa, from the Paleolithic to at least the early Holocene, and diffused northward to the Levant and Anatolia beginning in the Mesolithic.

 

 

Quote: We know from archeological data that in the upper Paleolithic period Anatolia was settled by populations with Aurignacian culture (Kuhn 2002). Recent genetic studies (Cinnioglu et al. 2004; Olivieri et al. 2006) based on the analysis of mtDNA (haplogroup M1 and U6) and the Y chromosome (R1b3-M269 lineage) suggest, in agreement with paleoenvironmental evidence (van Andel and Tzedakis 1996), that around 40,000–45,000 years ago, populations with Aurignacian culture may have spread by migration from the Levant and southwest Asia to Anatolia and further into Europe (Bar-Yosef 2002).

 

For those not aware: the other name for the Byzantine Empire was "The Eastern Roman Empire". This study confirms that the original Anatolians (now named Turkey), Greeks and Romans, and ALL original people of Ancient Europe, were Africans. Which should be obvious because of the close proximity. But when contending with Albino lies, and Albino control of media, nothing is automatic.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well if they are not Europeans, then where DO they come from?

 

 

 

 

Albinos are dyed-in-the-wool liars so they continue to hide where they really come from:

but logically if they are not from Europe, and not from Africa, then the only other choice is Asia;

they ARE indeed from Asia.

 

 

The particulars of HOW they came to be from Central Asia, by way of Africa, is in other sections of Realhistoryww.com

Publius Cornelius Tacitus was a senator and a historian of the Roman Empire (died 117 A.D.). The surviving portions of his two major works—the Annals and the Histories—examine the reigns of the emperors Tiberius, Claudius, Nero, and those who reigned in the Year of the Four Emperors. Tacitus described the Central Asian Dravidian Albinos thusly:

 

 

 

Can't get much more Albino than that, can you? See the Wiki definitions of Albino above.

 

 

But the real issue at hand is NOT that European Albinos are native to Europe - that has already been proven false. Rather, the issue is WHEN they arrived in Europe. We had always assumed that the first wave of Central Asian Albinos arrived sometime about 1,200 B.C. and was the cause of the "Sea Peoples" exodus from Southern Europe and the Mediterranean Islands. But try as we might, we could find no ancient text describing or mentioning WHITE people. As a matter of fact: the Tacitus quote above, may in fact be the earliest mention of White people.

Modern Albinos being aware of this themselves, decided to do scientific studies of "Ancient Skeletons" in Europe, in an effort to document White/Albino people in ancient Europe. But in doing that they realized that they would have to be extremely precise in defining what constituted a White person like modern Europeans. They understood that using "Cranial" analysis was impossible because (though they will never admit this), as the only "Pure" Humans: BLACKS HAVE "ALL" HUMAN FEATURES, GENOTYPES AND PHENOTYPES! "ALL" of them, just with Black or Brown skin - because normal humans are not Albinos.

 

We have all seen Television shows where the pathologist examining the BONES says: "This is a White Male, or this is a female Chinese/Mongol/Asian, etc. It's all "BULL": because unless the individual was pronounced "Negroid" there is no way to tell what Race the skeletal remains represents - as relates to Europeans. That is because unlike European Albinos who all are of a Phenotype like their "Original" people (India's Dravidians): Or the Chinese who are all like their "Original" people (the East African Himba and San), Blacks have "ALL" Phenotypes and Genotypes.

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

So the only thing the White scientists could do in their search for evidence of White people in ancient Europe, was to "BREAK DOWN AND ADMIT THAT THEY, AND THEIR KIND, WERE ALBINOS! That admission allowed them to look for the easy to detect Albinism/Skin color genes: SLC45A2 and SLC24A5 in ancient European skeletons.

 

 

 

The European Albinos looked for the SLC45A2 and SLC24A5 genes in the 2014 Study:

"Derived immune and ancestral pigmentation alleles in a 7,000-year-old Mesolithic European"

 

 

THE STUDY:

 

 

Quote from the study: Here we sequence an approximately 7,000-year-old Mesolithic skeleton discovered at the La Brana-Arintero site in Leon, Spain, to retrieve a complete pre-agricultural European human genome. Very little is known of the genetic composition of earlier hunter-gatherer populations from the Mesolithic period (circa 10,000–5,000 years before present, BP; immediately preceding the Neolithic period).

 

Forensic mock-up of La Brana Man

   

 

 

For the sake of "Truth and Accuracy"

this is more like what those ancient Black people looked like.

 

 

   

 

Another excerpt from the study:

 

Quote: To investigate the relationship to extant (current) European samples, we conducted a principal component analysis (PCA)10 and found that the approximately 7,000-year-old Mesolithic sample was divergent from extant European populations (Extended Data Fig. 3a, b), but was placed in proximity to northern Europeans (for example, samples from Sweden and Finland) 11–14. Additional PCAs and allele-sharing analyses with ancient Scandinavian specimens 3 supported the genetic similarity of the La Bran˜a 1 genome to Neolithic hunter-gatherers (Ajv70, Ajv52, Ire8) relative to Neolithic farmers (Gok4,Otzi) (Fig. 1c, Extended Data Figs 3c and 4). Thus, this Mesolithic individual from southwestern Europe represents a formerly widespread gene pool that seems to be partially preserved in some modern-day northern European populations, as suggested previously with limited genetic data2,3.

 

WELL THERE IT IS LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: La Brana 1, IS THE “SAME” AS ANCIENT SCANDINAVIANS!

MEANING THAT BLACKS WERE THE “FIRST” AND “ORIGINAL” NORSEMEN/VIKINGS - NOT GERMANICS!!

 

 

 

More on the Black Vikings..

There’s an age-old saying and stereotype, that if you want to hide something from a black person, put it in a book. It implies that black people don’t read and as a result of this inaction, they are doomed to perish from a lack of knowledge. Probably so, but they are not the only ones: Racist Albino Rabble routinely make fools of themselves, and even bring harm to others and themselves, because like the Negro, they don't read, and are therefore ignorant of history.

In 2011 Director Kenneth Branagh cast Black actor Idris Elba as a Viking in the Movie "Thor". Immediately there were calls by the Albino Rabble to boycott the movie. Typical was protestor Ian Tucker who writes: "I'll watch this when they remake 'Shaft' with a white guy."

The reason for the outrage is because Idris Elba, a British actor of African parentage best known as Stringer Bell on "The Wire," has been chosen to play Heimdall, the steadfast guardian of the rainbow bridge to Asgard. The boycott was organized late that year by the Council of Conservative Citizens, a white nationalist organization that condemns interracial marriage and refers to blacks as "a retrograde species of humanity." A Dec. 27, 2010, entry on the group's "Boycott Thor" website rages against the multiracial Valhalla depicted in the upcoming movie, and points out that Stan Lee (the creator) has personally funded Hillary Clinton and Ted Kennedy." "It is very clear where his bias lies," the anonymous author quips.


Surprisingly, African-American fantasy author Charles Saunders, creator of the Sub-Saharan sword and sorcery hero Imaro, weighs in on the side of those who want to keep Heimdall white. "The internal integrity of those mythologies should be acknowledged and respected," he writes in a Jan. 25 blog post titled "The Heimdall Hullabaloo." Saunders' reasons for disparaging an African Heimdall stem from being asked to rework his African-descended characters as Caucasians for a 1985 Roger Corman-produced film called "Amazons."

The trouble is that the ignorant Albinos AND the ignorant Negro, didn't know what they are talking about.

 

 

Says: Swedish Vikingar Mot Rasism (Vikings Against Racism), a network set up by Viking fans to challenge the use of Viking symbols by white nationalists). 'We can't let racists re-define Viking culture'

Symbols from the Viking era have been used by far-right movements for decades, including in Nazi Germany. And as extreme factions of the movement have gained prominence in Nordic countries as well as in America over recent years, so too has the misappropriation of Viking iconography.

One way the group hopes to tackle this is by raising awareness about Viking culture, and von Malmborg says the image projected by white nationalist groups is largely based on myth.

In the 19th century, nationalistic movements spread across Europe, and this was when historians created the image of the Viking many of us are familiar with today. "The National Romantics were looking for something exclusively Nordic, and they settled on the Viking age as a symbol for nationalism. They painted the era as a picture of strength, and later the Nazis wanted to be associated with strong civilizations so they used Viking runes and symbols – as well as the eagle from the Roman Empire, for example," explains von Malmborg.

"There's a problem with history as a subject in general: we project our own culture and values onto the cultures we study," she adds. "But that's not an accurate representation.We know that the Vikings had lots of intercultural relations, and positive ones too, which you don't often hear about. They were traders and mixed with cultures all over the reachable world." They failed to mention that Blacks were the ORIGINAL Vikings! Is that out of ignorance, or is it typical Albino hiding of "Real-history"?

Note that in the Russian painting above: one of the Vikings is "Dark" as is the King they are visiting.

 

 

That is because though Slav's (Eastern Europeans) are generally every bit as "Anti-Black"

as Germanics (Western Europeans), they (USED TO) draw the line at misrepresenting their former KINGS and SAINTS.

 

 

Note that in this 1500s painting of Saint/King Vladimir above, he and his sons are Black.

 

 

This painting of Russia's greatest King; "Peter the Great"

who was clearly a Black man,

is proudly displayed in "The State Hermitage Museum of Russia."

 

 

But things are changing, younger Russians have no respect for their past Black Kings and Saints,

so like the Albinos of Western Europe,

they have taken to depicting everyone as White, and writing Blacks out of History.

Ancient Books like "The Irish Annals" and "The Domesday Book" Speak of Black Vikings.


Domesday Book is a manuscript record of the "Great Survey" of much of England and parts of Wales completed in 1086 by order of King William the Conqueror. It was written in Medieval Latin. The survey's main purpose was to determine what taxes had been owed during the reign of King Edward the Confessor, which allowed William to reassert the rights of the Crown and assess where power lay after a wholesale redistribution of land following the Norman conquest. The Norman Conquest of England was the 11th-century invasion and occupation of England by an army of Norman, Breton, Flemish and French soldiers led by Duke William II of Normandy, later styled William the Conqueror.


The Normans are a group that arose in Normandy, a northern region of France, from contact between indigenous Franks and Gallo-Romans, and Norse Viking settlers. The settlements followed a series of raids on the French coast from Denmark, Norway and Iceland, and they gained political legitimacy when the Viking leader Rollo agreed to swear fealty to King Charles III of West Francia.


A number of Irish annals, of which the earliest was the Chronicle of Ireland, were compiled up to and shortly after the end of the 17th century. Annals were originally a means by which monks determined the yearly chronology of feast days. Over time, the obituaries of priests, abbots and bishops were added, along with that of notable political events.

David MacRitchie (1851-1925) was a Scottish folklorist and antiquarian: MacRitchie believed that blacks were the original inhabitants of Northern Europe especially in Scandinavia, Wales, Scotland and Ireland going into the Middle Ages. He list numerous Vikings who he believes to be black in his books:
Quote: "So that the Picts Proper and the Black Danes, being both Moors and both being "black strangers" or dubh galls, in the sight of the white races of Britain..." page 201
Quote: "Accepting this conclusion, then as, in the main, correct, we have before us undeniable evidence - historical and ethnological - of the immemorial presence of the blacks in this country [Great Britain] page 157-158
Quote: "We know that the first inhabitants of Britain and more especially those of the northern parts, were craniologically of a type approaching to the Negro or the Australian race" Page 7-8
Quote: "The black herds of Scots and Picts' were all alike to British Gildas Page 216
Quote: "Therefore, it becomes evident that some race of Scandinavians must have been Black Huns also, with physical characteristics approaching those of the Pictish Moors... Page 110
Quote: "...yet there is word-evidence in our Islands [Great Britain], as elsewhere, of a time when a conquered race was of black colour." Page 37
Quote: "That the wild tribes of Ireland were black men is hinted by the fact that "a wild Irishmen" is in Gaelic "a black Irishman" (Dubh Eireannach). And that some of the natives of Scotland, as well as of England, were of this race also is evident when one remembers that, according to Skene, the powerful tribe of the Damnonii, which was the chief of the Maeatae, or marsh-dwellers, who were a part of the Picti or Caledonii, were probably relations of their namesakes of South-Western Britain; which indeed is almost a certainty, if nomenclature goes for anything" Page 45.

But in spite of all of this text documentation, it was not until the La Brana 1 study, that we had undisputable scientific proof that the "Original" Vikings were Black people.

 

MORE from the Study:

Quote: We subsequently explored the La Bran˜a affinities to an ancient Upper Palaeolithic genome from the Mal’ta site near Lake Baikal in Siberia. Outgroup f3 and D statistics16,17, using different modern reference populations, support that Mal’ta is significantly closer to La Bran˜a 1 than to Asians or modern Europeans.

These results suggest that despite the vast geographical distance and temporal span, La Bran˜a 1 and Mal’ta share common genetic ancestry, indicating a genetic continuity in ancient western and central Eurasia. This observation matches findings of similar cultural artifacts across time and space in Upper Paleolithic western Eurasia and Siberia, particularly the presence of anthropomorphic ‘Venus’ figurines that have been recovered from several sites in Europe and Russia, including the Mal’ta site.

 

Almost ALL ‘Venus’ figurines in ancient Europe were "Steatopygic" making them unmistakably Black.

Definition of steatopygia

:an excessive development of fat on the buttocks that occurs chiefly among women of some African peoples and especially the Khoisan people.

 

 

 

MORE from the Study:

The Mesolithic genome carried the ancestral (Unmutated, Unmodified) and non-selected allele (more Albino nonsense that they CHOOSE to be White/Albino) as a homozygote (an individual having two identical alleles of a particular gene or genes and so breeding true for the corresponding characteristic; in this case Black Skin) in three regions:C12orf29 (a gene with unknown function), SLC45A2 (rs16891982) and SLC24A5 (rs1426654) (Table 1). The latter two variants are the two strongest known loci affecting light skin pigmentation in Europeans 20–22 and their ancestral alleles and associated haplotypes are either absent or segregate at very low frequencies in extant Europeans (3% and 0% for SLC45A2 and SLC24A5, respectively) (Fig. 2). (Translation "Modern" Europeans have only the "MUTATED" versions of these genes. They are thus Albinos).

We subsequently examined all genes known to be associated with pigmentation in Europeans, and found ancestral alleles in MC1R, TYR and KITLG, and derived alleles in TYRP1, ASIP and IRF4 (Supplementary Information). Although the precise phenotypic effects cannot currently be ascertained in a European genetic background, results from functional experiments indicate that the allelic combination in this Mesolithic individual is likely to have resulted in dark skin pigmentation and dark or brown hair.

Further examination revealed that this individual carried the HERC2 rs12913832*C single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and the associated homozygous haplotype spanning the HERC2–OCA2 locus that is strongly associated with blue eye color 23. Moreover, a prediction of eye color based on genotypes at additional loci using HIrisPlex 24 produced a 0.823 maximal and 0.672 minimal probability for being non-brown-eyed (Supplementary Information). The genotypic combination leading to a predicted phenotype of dark skin and non-brown eyes is unique and no longer present in contemporary European populations. Our results indicate that the adaptive spread of light skin pigmentation alleles was not complete in some European populations by the Mesolithic, and that the spread of alleles associated with light/blue eye color may have preceded changes in skin pigmentation. (Meaning that Blacks with Blue eyes came before people with White Skin (Albinos).

In case anyone missed it:

Do you see how Europe's Albinos like to make everyone in history look like Albinos too?

 

 

In case you're wondering what a "WHITE" mummy looks like...

 

 

 

The conclusion of this study is that White/Albino

people were not present in Europe 5,000 years ago.

 

 

As to the Blue Eyes:

 

   

 

 

Black people with non-Brown/Black eye color, as Black people

with Blonde, or Red hair: are people with "Partial" and Isolated Albino mutations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Except for Albinism type 1: (Type 1 oculocutaneous albinism (OCA1): ALL Albinism is "PARTIAL".

 

 

 

 

 

SLC45A2 gene - solute carrier family 45 member 2 - Other names for this gene: MATP, AIM-1, melanoma antigen AIM1.

The SLC45A2 gene (also called MATP) provides instructions for making a protein that is located in specialized cells called melanocytes. These cells produce a pigment called melanin, which is the substance that gives skin, hair, and eyes their color. Melanin is also found in the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye (the retina), where it plays a role in normal vision.

Although the exact function of the SLC45A2 protein is unknown, it is likely involved in the production of melanin. This protein probably transports molecules necessary for the normal function of melanosomes, which are the structures in melanocytes where melanin is produced. Studies suggest that certain common variations (polymorphisms) in the SLC45A2 gene may be associated with normal differences in skin, hair, and eye coloring.

Health conditions related to changes in this Gene:

1) Oculocutaneous Albinism.
More than 20 mutations in the SLC45A2 gene are responsible for oculocutaneous albinism type 4. The most common SLC45A2 mutation in the Japanese population switches a single protein building block (amino acid) in the SLC45A2 protein. Specifically, this mutation replaces the amino acid aspartic acid with the amino acid asparagine at protein position 157 (written as Asp157Asn or D157N). Other mutations, including changes in single amino acids and deletions or insertions of genetic material in the SLC45A2 gene, have also been reported in several populations worldwide. Mutations in this gene reduce or eliminate the function of the SLC45A2 protein in melanin production. Because this protein is important for normal pigmentation, its loss leads to changes in skin, hair, and eye coloration and problems with vision that are characteristic of oculocutaneous albinism type 4.

2) Melanoma - Melanoma is a form of skin cancer that arises when pigment-producing cells—known as melanocytes—mutate and become cancerous.

 

SLC24A5 gene - solute carrier family 24 member 5 - Other names for this gene: OCA6, JSX, NCKX5, SHEP4.


This gene is a member of the potassium-dependent sodium/calcium exchanger family and encodes an intracellular membrane protein with 2 large hydrophilic loops and 2 sets of multiple transmembrane-spanning segments. Sequence variation in this gene has been associated with differences in skin pigmentation.

Health conditions related to changes in this Gene:

Albinism, oculocutaneous, 6 (OCA6): A disorder characterized by a reduction or complete loss of melanin in the skin, hair and eyes. Patients show reduced or lacking pigmentation often accompanied by eye symptoms such as photophobia, strabismus, moderate to severe visual impairment, and nystagmus.

Except for Tacitus's description of the Germanics, the only other known mention of White Humans is the following:

The Project Gutenberg Etext of Anabasis by Xenophon
Translation by H. G. Dakyns

Xenophon the Athenian was born 431 B.C. He was a pupil of Socrates. He marched with the Spartans, and was exiled from Athens. Sparta gave him land and property in Scillus, where he lived for many years before having to move once more, to settle in Corinth. He died in 354 B.C. The Anabasis is his story of the march to Persia to aid Cyrus, who enlisted Greek help to try and take the throne from Artaxerxes, and the ensuing return of the Greeks, in which Xenophon played a leading role. This occurred between 401 B.C. and March 399 B.C.

[3] I.e. "chestnuts.

Quote: When, in the course of their march, they came upon a friendly population, these would entertain them with exhibitions of fatted children belonging to the wealthy classes, fed up on boiled chestnuts until they were as white as white can be, of skin plump and delicate, and very nearly as broad as they were long, with their backs variegated (exhibiting different colors, especially as irregular patches or streaks), and their breasts tattooed with patterns of all sorts of flowers. They sought after the women in the Hellenic army, and would fain have laid with them openly in broad daylight, for that was their custom. The whole community, male and female alike, were fair-complexioned and white-skinned. It was agreed that this was the most barbaric and outlandish people that they had passed through on the whole expedition, and the furthest removed from the Hellenic customs, doing in a crowd precisely what other people would prefer to do in solitude, and when alone behaving exactly as others would behave in company, talking to themselves and laughing at their own expense, standing still and then again capering about, wherever they might chance to be, without rhyme or reason, as if their sole business were to show off to the rest of the world.

The problem here is that we know European Albinos are degenerate liars: so we can't be sure if Xenophon really wrote about encountering strange White people in Anatolia, or if the people who have complete control over these ancient works (European Albinos), simply interjected references to their own kind, so as to support their historical lies.

In any case, both Tacitus and Xenophon make it clear that White Skinned Humans were strange and unusual to them. So though we can't pin down exactly when the Central Asian Albinos arrived in Europe, we do know that it was in, or very close to, the Modern Era (after year "0" A.D.).

 

_____________________________________________________________

 

We often wonder and ponder: How could our Albinos get the best of us,

to the point where they came to rule the entire world?

 

The answer may lay in this quote from Xenophon:

The Project Gutenberg Etext of Hellenica by Xenophon
Translation by H. G. Dakyns

I.e. at Ephesus.

But, instead of marching straight into Caria, Agesilaus turned sharp off in the opposite direction towards Phrygia. Picking up various detachments of troops which met him on his march, he steadily advanced, laying cities prostrate before him, and by the unexpectedness of his attack reaping a golden harvest of spoil. As a rule the march was prosecuted safely; but not far from Dascylium his advanced guard of cavalry were pushing on towards a knoll to take a survery of the state of things in front B.C. 395. After this, at the first indication of spring, he collected the whole of his army at Ephesus. But the army needed training. With that object he proposed a series of prizes--prizes to the heavy infantry regiments, to be won by those who presented their men in the best condition; prizes for the cavalry regiments which could ride best; prizes for those divisions of peltasts and archers which proved most efficient in their respective duties. And now the gymnasiums were a sight to see, thronged as they were, one and all, with warriors stripping for exercise; or again, the hippodrome crowded with horses and riders performing their evolutions; or the javelin men and archers going through their peculiar drill. In fact, the whole city where he lay presented under his hands a spectacle not to be forgotten.

The market-place literally teemed with horses, arms, and accoutrements of all sorts for sale. The bronze-worker, the carpenter, the smith, the leather-cutter, the painter and embosser, were all busily engaged in fabricating the implements of war; so that the city of Ephesus itself was fairly converted into a military workshop. It would have done a man's heart good to see those long lines of soldiers with Agesilaus at their head, as they stepped gaily be-garlanded from the gymnasiums to dedicate their wreaths to the goddess Artemis. Nor can I well conceive of elements more fraught with hope than were here combined. Here were reverence and piety towards Heaven; here practice in war and military training; here discipline with habitual obedience to authority.

But contempt for one's enemy will infuse a kind of strength in battle. So the Spartan leader argued; and with a view to its production he ordered the quartermasters to put up the prisoners who had been captured by his foraging bands for auction, stripped naked; so that his Hellenic soldiery, as they looked at the white skins which had never been bared to sun and wind, the soft limbs unused to toil through constant riding in carriages, came to the conclusion that war with such adversaries would differ little from a fight with women. (Dascylium near modern day Ergili, Turkey).

 

Often Blacks look upon Albinos as being physically inferior:

though that is certainly true as relates to tolerance for the

Sun and certain immunity benefits, to take it further begs for defeat.

 

Besides, as our Albinos proved: "Better Weapons" BEAT "Better Bodies"!
