This is my favourite thing today. This German tapestry depicting A Moorish King of Strasbourg, Alsace defending the town from the "wild men" approx 1440. Notice l said defending. It's all in the language one uses. Often English, American and many historians who call themselves scholars like to use langauage that makes anyone not Euopean the enermy, when explaining history. This is intentionally unintentional and makes many listeners develop steroetypes and misconceptions that are still around today. I blame some teachers, scholars and documentary film makers of misusing their positions of power to influence people with their personal perspective, without the listener being aware of their prejudice and racial bias (yes there is that word we have all been hearing). Thats why l watch historical movies and documentaries with a grain of salt. Its no secret that their were Moorish Kings in Europe so why is the full story of them never told ? Interesting fact: One of the first things Adolf Hitler did once in power was remove the Moorish King symbols in the German coat of arms. #truestories #GermanMoorishking #medievaltapestry #history #Europeanhistory #AfricansinEurope #racismIsARelativelynewinvention #racism #racialbias #historymustcorrectitsracialbias #historymustcorrectitssexism #AfricanshavebeeninEuropesincethebeginingsoftime #ThereisnolandthatAfricanpeopledidnotventure #Africawasnotalwaysviewedaspoor #racismcreatessteroetypes #theMoorsinCoatsofarms #ThemeaningbehindBeyonce'sCochellaTop #moorsruledwithwisdom #moorswerelovedinEurope #Moorswererespected #Theybroughtenlightenment #alchemy #chess #geometry #sophisticatedarchitecture #educationand #more #manypeopleinEuropehavemoorishancestry #AllInTheworldhaveAfricandna #itstimetoackknowledgethisfully
