Really? What were they? Were all of the contemporary paintings, woodcuts, etc. purposely falsified?

Although Im no expert on such matters, my understanding is that aryan does not mean all whites. Aryan is a strain of white, primarily of Germanic descent. As is well known, our founding fathers were mostly from/of England/English background. But of course they were white.

Aryan, like Fascism, is a word that is frequently misused. The following article is decent from a historical standpoint; but no one doubts that speakers of Ugro-Finnic languages (Hungarian, Finnish, Sami, and Estonian) are Aryans. Aryan is often equated with European White racially; but while Semites (Arabs and Jews) are not Aryan, Persians or Iranians are. The Aryan conquest of India created a mixed race; many Indians look very European.

And technically the English are a Germanic people. The Germans, English, Scandinavians, and Dutch are all Germanic.

According to Wikipedia at Scottish American - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nineteen of the fifty-six delegates who signed the Declaration of Independence came from Scotland or Ulster or, like the Scottish-tutored Thomas Jefferson, had ancestors there.

Scottish ancestry may be Indo-European (according to Happy's link, the Celts fit that group) but it's not Germanic.

hahahaha, You're so clever. So when you asked was it a big laugh or a little giggly laugh? Sorry for interrupting. Carry on.

Oh, and Atlanta? It wouldn't even be here in a U.S. with no railroads and no A/C, which is surely the result in a world where native americans or african slaves, and not those evil white bastards, were the founding fathers.
Cause if it wasn't for America there would be no computers, electricity, or reading.

In a bit of irony, one of Kurt Cobain's famous quotes is,“If you're a sexist, racist, homophobe, or basically an arsehole, don't buy this CD. I don't care if you like me, I hate you.” That's unfiltered Kurt for you. Vedder felt the same way (WMA for reference). Zero tolerance for posers.

I guess the tone of this thread from the beginning paved the way, but I admit I'm a bit blown away by the fact that with a few exceptions, most just watched with their hands in their pockets. I know I'm totally going to get major backlash for saying this, but... I've lived in New York, Boston, & Nor Cal and I can't imagine that this garbage would have continued unchecked for so long on any one of those cities' forums. I honestly expected the posters from this cosmopolitan city to be more... cosmopolitan. Google it. Nevermind, here's a link. You might look at the magazine and think being cosmopolitan is about how you dress and what you drink.

Wow, that is so interesting. Next time the fam gets together I'll make sure to bring that up between the pints of Belhaven.
