I couldn' find pet peeve. So..Ima gonna use this. I was in a meeting today with one of the professors who teach Art appreciation. And she was talking about the Greeks and the Romans and how civilized and advanced they were. And I happened to mentioned that the GREEKS in particular STOLE eveything from the Egyptians.
Longstoryshort. This heifer on the side suggested that although the Greek adopted some of the customs from Egyptians...clearly Egyptians were the backward culture and the Greeks were the powerful one. And I was in front of a lot of students...and I just DIDN'T want to undermine her representation...although a few colleagues of mine were holding their breaths cuz they thought it was gonna be a heated debate.
But! I didn't say a word cuz I didn't want to involve the students. I don't like having disagreements in front of them. But! This shit is bothering me BIG TIME!!!!! Cuz it is a straight out LIE that Egyptians were backward...it's like the other way around it was the Greeks who were backward using sodomy as a weapon of mass destruction. I wanna go there sooooooooooo bad. But! Next time. I'm gonna get her. Yeah I am. I'm gonna wear her azz out! But I'm willing to wait for the right moment. then....BAM! Only cuz whitefolks think they KNOW everything....and they don't. And I just have to call her out on this. It's wrong for her to say that to students when SHE knows it is not true. Like Blackfolks were waiting around for whitefolks to civilize them. Ha! That a gdamn LIE!!! So....I'll just sharpen my skills...and wait. It'll come back around. This time I'll be readdddy! But!
