    It seems that this Dr goes to American museums sifts through probably hundreds of pictures of books about say Greece, finds one which he likes and then talks about "the African presence" in Greece. Which means nothing. The Greeks weren't "black".   Neither were the Phoenicians and Carthaginians. There are a few statues in Carthage still (*the city was destroyed by the Romans) and there are statues of Phoenicians in various cities in the Mediterranean. They are not "Black" .  Only some American coloured or whatever they call themselves now think they have anything to do with him or with the descendants of the American slaves bought from West African chiefs

    I knew the knight was African descent when I was reading Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. There was an African aroma about that knight when he rolled up.
