Why would any pre-modern setting that's actually important like the Greeks were actively reject racism or some other form of discrimination on blood when we have plenty of evidence of such behavior being allowed and accepted by the likes of Greeks and Egyptians? Even the Mongols hated the Han Chinese and discriminated against them in governing.
>>
>>64586256
Because it hurts fee-fees.
>>
>>64586256
Because they wouldn't? I feel like you've got a strawman you'd like to tear down, but if you don't show us it we're not going to have even the slightest regard for your argument. What thing are you complaining about, anon?

>>64586256
Greeks discriminated on basis of culture not on the basis of race.
>>
>>64586347
>he thinks Anglos invented the racist
Still wrong. Aristotle even said that men born in different climates with different blood had different intelligence than his kind.
>>
>>64586392
I think anon's point was that Greeks acted in a manner we would associate with 'racism', but they did so to all non-greeks. Regardless of race, all non-greeks were equally worthless. Even those who were obviously related to them were lesser due to their cultures.

Of course he's ignoring the fact that both Persian and Egypt, who existed in this same time period, judged others both by cultural values, and what we would consider 'race'. But by and large our ancestors had a different idea of 'race' than we do today. Germans and French were once considered separate races after all.

Because retards like (You) think that the modern concept of racism applies to ancient societies and people.

Of course, if you unironically are not a gaylord then sure, nothing wrong with a little racism to build a fantasy setting, but if you are unable to understand why somebody might want to have a setting with characters who accept each other once they earned it, or having a society that may be untrusting but eventually warm up to a nonhuman or other race so their character doesn't feel like shit.
>>
>>64586507
OP also named the Egyptians, who had very...ah unpleasant things to say about the Nubians and their dark skin, but fair enough. I retract my statement.
>>
>>64586516
I think the important thing to remember is that people hate that which is most similar to themselves. if you're from the the town on the other side of the river and through the forest that keeps poaching during winter and blaming it on us we'll fucking bury you in a swamp at first suspicion, but if you've got green skin and 8 inch goat horns, well, that's some weird shit, but as long as your coin is good, you trade honestly, and don't go sticking your nose where it doesn't belong you're fine, try not to pay any mind to the kids, they've never seen any of your kind before.

Modern racism is primarily based on genetics, large geographical differences, and skin color.

Ancient racism was mostly based on all sorts of visual appearance, such as hair color, and smaller geographical differences. Along with cultural differences , as a stark enough cultural difference could cause even two peoples who look almost exactly alike to consider one another separate races.
>>
>>64586256
Probably because a series of painful historical events forced them to confront their racism. Like in real life. But that's boring.
>>
>>64586613
They werent and I am not claiming that. They despised people from the east/south as spineless and womanly while hating northerners because they were uncivilised and uncultured.
>>
>>64586631
Of course Macedonians were Barbarians, until Alexander the Great. After that they retroactively claimed Macedon had always been Greek.
>>
>>64586256
It's slightly a misconception that racism didn't exist in the pre-modern world. So-called "scientific racism" was only made possible by rudimentary understanding of genetics and natural selection when these discoveries were being made and popularized, but you find evidence of medieval people claiming that differences of culture and even religion were reflections of deep-seated biological differences between groups.
I found this article interesting in analyzing medieval beliefs about race. They examine beliefs of the time through the stories they created about race. https://www.publicmedievalist.com/medieval-people-racist/
>>
>ITT nobody understands the difference between race and ethnic groups and between racism/race theory and ethnic based conflicts
>>
>>64586656
Quite the opposite. Macedonians were barbarians, and then they were Hellenised barbarians, and then they were just Greeks with weird customs (like drinking full strength wine). At this point, they were just seen as weird Greeks...until Philip. When the Macedonians started seriously threatening Greece, then suddenly they became barbarians that all the true Greeks had to stand against.

American racism is American, sorry its just the truth. If you come to the UK you'll discover we hate Polish people and Pakistanis with equal weight.

Yes, everyone knows that ancient and medieval peoples discriminated based on genetic make up, but they also applied just as much if not more weight on culture. And they didn't see the world in terms of "white" and "black".

I don't know what this has to do with traditional games.

>>64586747
This, ethnic cleansing isn't racist
>>
>>64586256
The word racism was invented by Leon Trotsky in the 20th century. Before that it was just assumed that anyone rational would believe their own race was superior.
>>
>>64586796
Yeah but what if it's two ethnics that aren't part of the same race?
>>
>>64586784
actually that is not quite true. Pliny or Strabo for example described different gentes and they sure as hell employed othering, but not based on genetics. Rather on behaviour and mindset. Descriptions of colour also was a thing, but as far as I know, it was not utilized for discrimination at least by these two.

Actually, USSR's population was 136 million in 1922. That would make 60 mil a half of it.

The weirdest part is how all those tens of millions somehow correlate with massive population growth, while Hitler's >11 million seem to have caused an unprecedented dive of around 25 million, and that's just soviet people.

Probably commie lies though.

Stalin died in 1953. With Khruschev's Thaw, political charges were removed from the Soviet Law Code. Kolkhoz system was reformed into sovkhoz in 1957. GULAG system was reformed and diminished in 1955, and dissolved in 1959.

They wanted to preserve their existence. Blood is a part of the existence of a civilization. One part of many but without it things tend to degenerate to varying degrees as it effects other perceptions and so on. Ancient Greeks did not like blood-mixing and those that even had a Thracian mother, from the barbarian tribes not just the region, would be looked down upon to a certain degree.

Even native americans looked down upon those that race-mixed.

>>64587520
USA is an empire and was an "empire" type of country. Multi-everything. Mixing races beyond a point can only be non-degenerative in a Golden age of planet earth, almost in 99,9% of the cases.

USA is the most degenerate country on planet earth. For each good thing it generates 99 evil things come out of it. That One good thing makes the difference of course.

Also the efforts of ancient peoples to preserve their existence should not be taken as a modern concept of racism. It was entirely different.
>>
>>64587592
>USA is the most degenerate country on planet earth
So, commies were right?
>>
>>64587620
No communists and marxists were and are evil. The Degeneracy of USA has to do with the fact that most things have indeed degenerated;
From food and water to the mental and emotional state of beings. From crime to "art" of all or most sorts.
>>
>>64586624
In other words, the differences between old and new racism is that old racists didn't understand genetics? Even if that's true, this relies on the assumption that working class families don't like Arabs living in their neighborhoods because of their genetics, not because of their borderline subhuman behavior.

What you're talking about is Scientific Racism.
>>
>>64587652

SJW, Fat acceptance, identity politics, "White privilege" and dozens of other abominable idiocies, a polite way to describe these existentially cancerous conditions, come out of the US and are disseminated through them.

I'm okay with a /pol/ containment thread, but I wouldn't mind having it labeled clearly.
>>
>>64586256
>>Racism (or whatever)
This thread could be in History, not even Pol or some other section.

If its for a historical setting in rpgs, its clear as to why part of maintaining an ancient civilization usually involved keeping it homogenous blood-wise.

For a fantasy setting it is similar, but you can't really have athasian mul (they are sterile in the setting i think) and some races are just too different to mix to such degrees due to their lifespans or other colossal differences.

But a mul-culture i would like to see from a good writer and illustrator.
And an alternate history of a medieval-like native american single nation-state where they have some sort medieval plate armor era technology but with their own cultural aesthetics from the myths and religion.

That would be awesome.

Because it's beneficial.

In fact, multi-ethnic/multi-racial societies are considered a major milestone in cultural development.

Also, Classical 'Greece' incorporated areas of Asia Minor and Africa. 'Egyptian' likewise incorporated a multiple groups during its long history. Han, however, is the most egregious example as even today they're not considered an ethnic/racial group.
>>
>>64587966
>You're not going to find a Greek saying refugees are welcome

Mind you, it was the terrible treatment of refugees that got Rome sacked. Lupicinus was a right dickhead, making goth refugees sell their children into slavery for dog meat to eat (In contrast with previous people in charge of this that made sure the people they were escorting to new lands had food without gouging them for every penny possible). Eventually said refugees had enough and it went as we know history went, with Rome getting sacked.

Yes, because it's a small, heavily controlled police state where the only thing that matters is obeying the law and making money and anyone who steps out of line gets smashed down.

Previous instances worked well for Rome. It was when they lost the ability to actually work with those new people and instead treated them as something to be exploited in Lupicinus' case that shit went badly.

>>Still wrong. Aristotle even said that men born in different climates with different blood had different intelligence than his kind.
Sure, but it's probably worth considering that under this system the Greeks would have considered quite a lot of "white" people as being subhuman barbarians. Like everyone living in modern day France, Britain, Germany and Scandinavia.

The ancient Greeks obviously had tons of prejudices, some of which overlap with things that align with our modern conceptions of race. But it's worth remembering that it was different in a lot of ways.
>>
>>64586256
Because they didn't discriminate on what is conventionally connoted as 'race'. The Romans hated other Latins. The Greeks were a cultural first, ethnic second, group. Blood was a much, much narrower categorization than in the modern world. People outside of your own city state were basically all foreigners and of a different 'race' for discrimination purposes. The only question was how similar they were to you, in both ethnic and cultural factors. Greek were more likely to trust other Greeks due to their shared culture, but the moment you get out of a very small area you have Spartans (not greeks) Macedonia (not greeks), Anatolian Greco-cities (pretty much not greeks), and everyone else who they consider to be outside their 'race', but culturally acceptable. You need to narrow everything down to a much more local level to truly capture the discrimination in the ancient worlds.

The Mongols is an even worse example. The Mongols were comprised of a large number of ethnic tribes who were forged together into one unitary army. They were divided and dispersed, mixed around, and created into a new group. Racists? What race comprises such a multi-tribal army? Might as well define Mongol as 'loyal steppe retainer', race played no factor compared to lifestyle and warrior status in the army, and then status as conquering occupiers.

Then why were Spartans culturally Greek despite not being widely considered as by-blood Greeks? How did Alexander spread Greek culture and language through his conquests? How did the Roman Empire even work then, by that token?
>>

>But anon blood defines culture.

Rome would seriously disagree with that one, they made an empire by spreading their culture to people not related to them by blood.
>>
>>64590228
>Then why were Spartans culturally Greek despite not being widely considered as by-blood Greeks?
That's bullshit. Spartans were the most Greek of all Greeks. Molon labe!

>How did Alexander spread Greek culture and language through his conquests?
He spread jack shit. Mudskins on his conquered territories fucked it all up in a matter of years.

There was Rome populated by actual Roman people. Then barbaric mutts happened and it all went to shit. Coincidence?

That's the idea that cultures act the way they do based on their geography, and by extension are successful or not based on their geography, not whatever you said.

Not even remotely true you fucking brainlet. In your little example, the neighboring village is hating not because of how similar they aren't but because of common bad experience with them. Jesus Christ you're a fucking idiot.
>>
>>64590228
the fuck are you talking about
the Spartans were
i mean they were Dorian greeks and through that they traced their blood lines to dorians who marched into the Peloponnese, and through them all the way to eventually to the hellens

i mean there's a reason why they are called hellenics, because they all trace family lines to the heroes that were created after zues flooded the world.

Who are the Roman people? Rome was founded by three different distinct cultures.
>>
>>64590260
Romans were literally people who lived in Rome. They fought a civil war just to stop other Italians from voting for their government. There was never a 'Roman' Roman Empire. The day it became an Empire it was already expanded to cover other groups than the Romans in key positions (Italians) that no one considered the same racial group as them at all.

You're talking about events hundreds of years apart as if they were just next to each other. Africa Proconsularis for example became part of the Roman Republic in 146 BC and it lasted until 415, well into the Roman Empire.

>>64590306
The held themselves up as a separate ethnic group and literally created a slave caste out of the local inhabitants who's area they migrated into. Even if we take them as Greeks, they clearly differentiated themselves for racial-caste purposes. The entire existence of the Spartan state goes against the idea that ancient people had equivalent ideas to modern racism, because they spent an inordinate amount of time justifying themselves as separate from other Greeks.
>>
>>64590387
No, according to the Roman foundation myth the first Romans were a combination of outcasts from Latin and Etruscan tribes. They intermingled with the Sabines heavily. Later other Latins joined together with Samnites, Umbrians, Sicilians, Greeks and many others.

>ethnic group
well yeah they were their own ethnos but you are conflating the modern meaning with the ancient one.

>they created a slave caste out of varies pelponesians
yes but they know the Messiaens were also Doric greeks, the others not so much. why they did that is lost to time.

>they differentiate themselves on clas purposes racially
how do you deal with the perioikoi then? anyone can drop out of the peerage into failure, there would be none dorica periokoi and spartan citizens could drop into it
it seems more like metis status frankly.
>>
>>64590477
The early roman Kings were of Etruscan stock, later kings are supposed to be Sabines and Latin. Romulus is said to have divided the Romans in three internal tribes. Two of these three tribes have Etruscan derived names.

The Sabines were distinct from the Latins in the beginning, but they assimilated quite well and are very hard to find in the middle republic. The Kings Numa Pompillius and Ancus Marcius are Sabines.

because if so yeah there's like an essay to be written there.
You have to take in to account the bronze age collapse, the nature of pre panhellenic greece but also the blood diplomacy elements
lot of shit
>>
>>64590260
IIRC, the Spartans are considered to have been a Semitic people based on archaeological evidence, but that hardly mattered to the other Greek states. They formed military and mercantile alliances with other City States which made them, ipso facto, Greek by the standards of the time.

No clue what you're talking about since you've included no associated metric, but the most important and influential states in the world are also the most inclusive.

If you evolve under conditions where murdering or dehumanizing outsiders on sight attracts ravening homicidal demons that track you by the negative emotions involved in so doing, you'll all very quickly learn to get along or get eaten by demons.

For an only slightly more realistic scenario, you're just settling down after a long history of being "the outsiders" and you decide not to be hypocrites.
