One thought on “Moorish Portugese Sailors in Japan 1542 A.D: The Black European Series”

  1. Yes, these are Black Moorish seamen and yes, Black Moors did exist within Iberian aristocracy. But the notion that they “taught Europeans how to sail is absurd” as the Phoenicians (and their direct descendants, the Vikings), were excellent sailors who had successfully travelled the world.
