The Myths of the Dominant Caste

“Modern scholars must aver that it is both pernicious and dangerous to read into the evidence, and to affirm for earlier times, the pronouncements of a dominant social caste. Their myths, their prejudices, and their systems of classification and nomenclature must all be subjected to critical and empirical re-evaluation.”

-Jack D. Forbes, Africans and Native Americans, 1993
