  1. Most interesting.
    However, the Black presence in Europe started 45.000 years ago.
    Any black or brown person dealed with the browns and blacks who were the nobility and the bourgeois.
    whites were the serfs, hardly considered humans, kept also for shoe leather.
    they were emancipated in 1848 and had all portraits whitened,
    you can still see that if you go to a museum.
