Self Evident Truths

S. Ross Browne

Ummm…I am so VERY into this right now!

But Black people in period or fantasy settings totally makes the stories unreal.

Also holy shit I love these.

How come I don’t run across this stuff regularly?

Because of racism and the retroactive erasure of POC in Medieval Europe. Pretty much the same reason you almost never see these works of art either unless you’re already looking for them:

Umm….What do the bottom pictures have to do with the top ones? The top ones are pictures someone drew in modern day that are WOC in a historical/fantasy historical setting (BTW: Those pictures are actually really good.), the bottom ones are someone ranting about ‘erasure’ about POCs in Middle Ages Europe.

(PS: They should have cited those pictures and explained context. Some these appear to be from places like Egypt where they were merely using the people of the color/facial features that lived in that country and aren’t actually from Europe. Also, a lot of times, blacks in Middle Ages Europe where treated like novelty items. Middle Eastern and Asian people on the other hand were treated with suspicion. Middle Ages Europeans did think that white people were better then everyone else because they were ‘civilized’ when compared to other countries.)

-The Trans One

Bonus Fun Fact: One of the reasons people from Europe discriminated against black people was that they were a very Christian peoples and believed that white was a symbol of good and black was a symbol of evil.

Literally everything you’ve just said is wrong.

What the top picture have to do with the bottom pictures is that the top pictures are viewed as an anachronism, when in fact, they’re not.

Even depicting women in armor is historically accurate.

None of these works are from Egypt, and as a matter of fact, Egypt (Coptic Christian) and Ethiopia were known to Medieval Europe as bastions of Christianity, wealth, and civilization that surpassed what Europe had to offer.

Lastly, ALL of these artworks are cited on my blog. This post actually predates this blog by a good while. This post is part of the REASON for this blog’s existence.

"Middle Easterners" as you say, weren’t "viewed with suspicion" unless they were Muslim, on account of the religious wars that went on for almost a thousand years. Converted Muslims were frequently cast as European heroes in paintings and literature.
One of the most popular Medieval Saints was a Roman Christian Commander who was martyred for refusing to persecute his fellow Christians. And yes, he was Black.
East and/or South Asians weren’t viewed with suspicion! They were hailed as bringers of trade and wealth.
Bottom line: just about every assertion you’re making about the Middle Ages and European attitudes didn’t exist until after colonization and American chattel slavery, into the 18th and 19th centuries.
