Abstract

Professor Boter and Dr. Flinterman read ancient history at VU Amsterdam, but in reality they do not practice genuine scholarship, but white supremacy. This can be seen in their endorsement of books that can be regarded as white supremacist: by L. de Blois and R. van der Spek and by Mary Lefkowitz. These books propagate and even romanticize racist colonial concepts, deny the blatant racism of the philosophers of the white enlightenment, deny the African character of Egyptian civilization and in particular the fundamental Egyptian influence on ancient Greece. This in spite of the fact that the chauvinistic Greeks themselves have admitted that the Egyptians were black and that their culture, philosophy, science, and religion originated in Egypt.
