In the fascinating tape course “The History of the United States” from The Teaching Company, the lecturer spoke about the poor view of the African “race” that the English had in early colonial America. But then he noted that the English had a poor view of all the other “races,” including the German “race,” the French “race,” and even the Irish “race”! (It was only later in history that whites began to see themselves as a single group separate from the blacks.) After commenting on this tidbit to Paul, he pointed me to this rather funny set of charts on European prejudices. The over-the-top article that accompanies the charts is entitled 18 Ways to Hate Your Neighbour.
