of History here at Cal and a member of the Jefferson
Memorial Lectures Committee. We’re pleased, along with
the Graduate Council, to present Professor Nell Irvin Painter this year’s speaker in the Jefferson Memorial Lecture Series. The Jefferson Memorial Lecture Series was established in 1944 through a bequest from Elizabeth Bonestell and her husband, Cutler L. Bonestell. A prominent San Francisco couple, the Bonestell’s cared deeply for history and had hoped that the lectures
would encourage students, faculty, scholars, and
those in the community to study the legacy of Thomas Jefferson and to explore values inherent
in American democracy. Past lecturers, Ambassador
Jean Kirkpatrick, Senator Alan Simpson, this is a text, Representative Thomas
Foley, Walter LaFeber, Archibald Cox, have delivered
Jefferson Memorial Lectures on early American history,
about Jefferson himself and on American institutions
and policies in politics, economics, education, and law. Personally, I am honored
and humbled to introduce Professor Painter,
Edwards Professor Emeritus of Princeton University. Professor Painter is one
of the most important and influential historians of our time. Her list of distinguished publications, academic and scholarly awards, and honorary degrees dazzles. As a scholar and public intellectual, Professor Painter has helped
transform how we think and write about 19th and
20th century US history. Her wide ranging and stimulating body of historical scholarship has ranged across African American
history, Southern history, working class history, women’s history, cultural history, social history, and for good measure,
intellectual history. Her scholarly range is stunning. Her scholarship itself is exemplary. Because of her powerful
work, we now see 19th century black immigrants, black
working class radicals and communists, the late
19th and early 20th century, sojourner truth, enslaved
women, and yes, white people in fresh and revealing ways. Those of us who make it
a point to read her work, including her strikingly
perceptive essays, articles, and reviews delight
in her historical sensibility, her erudition, her rigor, her insight, and her inviting prose. Those of us who know Nell personally marvel at the commitment to teaching and to the training of future
historians and scholars. Both of these have earmarked
her path-breaking career, a career that took her to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of
Pennsylvania, before Princeton. Many of her former graduate
students have gone on to illustrious scholarly
careers in their own rite. Nell’s mentorship is not only
exceptional, but legendary. A genuinely cool and deeply humane person, Nell has modeled intellectual generosity, graciousness, and rigor. At critical points in the careers of many historians, like myself, Nell has provided not
only verbal encouragement and sage advice, but she has also provided substantive and helpful
criticism, necessary criticism. For that, her mentorship
and the inspiring example of her work and her career,
we are all indebted. Nell Irvin Painter, as
they say where I come from, a proud and brilliant black
woman pointed the way. Today, having retired
from her Princeton gig, Nell Irvin Painter is reinventing herself, becoming an exciting visual artist, sporting a 2009 BFA from Rutgers and a 2011 MFA from the Rhode
Island School of Design. With her BA in anthropology from Berkeley, her MA in African History from UCLA, and her PhD in American
History from Harvard, she knows a thing or
two about credentials. Not bad, as my down
home friends would say, for a true home girl, a graduate from Oakland Tech’s
gifted and talented program. This afternoon, Professor
Painter will be speaking on and illustrating why white
people are called Caucasian. Nell. (audience applauding) – [Nell] Thank you. Thanks, Waldo. That was terrific.
– Thank you. – Thank you, sir.
(audience applauding) Well, thank you so much, Waldo. It is really lovely,
it’s wonderful to be back in the Bay area. I haven’t been here since last year. My father, who’s now
94, who spent his career in Lewis Hall was the Chief
Technician of Chemistry, last year came to New Jersey, so we haven’t been coming back
as often as we did before. I wanna thank the
Jefferson Lecture Committee for bringing me here from Newark and for giving me the
chance to talk to you and see old friends and some new friends. So, this afternoon, my
talk has three sections. One is an autobiographical
section, fairly short. I wanna tell you something
about my process. The second part is the
actual body of the lecture with the illustrations, which
I made especially for you. And then, the last section is very brief. It has just one image, which
the Georgian National Museum very kindly let me use without
making me pay for permission. So, the question of why are
white people called Caucasian lies at the foundation of my 2010 book, The History of White People. People ask me, why did
you write that book? I said, I wanted to understand why white people are called Caucasian. I started working during the Chechnya wars of the late 20th century and I thought, why are American white
people called Chechens. And so, the book came out of that. So, the book took many hundreds of pages. It’s a very visual book ’cause I wrote it while I was in art school, but it’s fundamentally a history book rooted in an archive of words. Its research came out of the
Princeton University Library and I actually dedicated the book to the Princeton University Library. In the book, Johann Friedrich
Blumenbach, 1752 to 1840, who plays a central role
in the question I’m asking also has nearly an entire chapter, but his role in my presentation
to you this evening, he is really somewhat smaller and that has to do with my process of putting together this talk. So, as Professor Martin told you, I spent five years in
Art School at Rutgers and at the Rhode Island School of Design and there I learned to see, to really, really see, and the
process of making an image, whether you make it with
your hand, which I do, or you make it with your
computer, which I also do, and the images that I’m going
to show you this afternoon are digital images that
I made in my computer, but whether you do it
one way or the other, manually or digitally, you
have to fill the space. That means seeing into all that space and that process profoundly
altered what I could see in what I had written, actually, and what I had already
studied to write a book. So for instance, the skulls
now occupy a much more important place than before
because I looked at them and I looked for them
with an artist’s eye, not simply looking for words. So, the artifacts that reached science, I now see as particular
artifacts belonging to particular people and
that reached to science through the hands of particular people. So, my image-centered approach
has the great advantage of embodying, not just
quoting or analyzing; scientific utterance,
embodying scientific utterance, because usually in historical writing, the people who entomb scientific truth, they remain relatively unknown. Usually you can’t see them, you can’t see what they’re wearing, you can’t see how they stand, you can’t see their jewelry, for instance, but in today’s lecture, written
and produced by an artist as well, an historian,
I hope to make you see as many people in this story as possible into real people in actual places and particular circumstances,
even those whose destiny was to appear as parts of a taxonomy, as type de ceci, type de cela as types of millions of people, really. They turn out to be particular individuals whose intimate experiences place them in the path of science. So, that’s my
autobiographical introduction telling you about my
process and how my process influenced what I’m
going to show you today. So, my topic, the question
why are white people called Caucasian is a
pretty simple question and it’s crossed a lot of people’s minds. It’s crossed more people’s minds
than have actually said it. How many of you have wondered about that? Put your hand up if you… Okay. How many of you have said it out loud, have actually said to somebody, why are white people called Caucasian? So, many fewer. So, this has come up
pretty often this year. Here’s a general question, why are white people called Caucasian? And here’s the question for 2013. Now, where exactly is the Caucasus or is it are the Caucasus? Look for the red Google
marker between the Black and the Caspian Seas,
that shows you the place we’re looking for or the
places we’re looking for and they’re right on the
border near Europe and Asia. Now, anthropologists have
known what Caucasians look like in terms of taxonomy, type de Caucasus or something like that, and these images come from William Z Ripley’s
Races of Europe, 1899, which was the bible of race thinking in the early 20th century, was the bible for the
federal government in the era of closing down immigration from southern and eastern Europe, so those people standing
behind my Brooklyn revelers, those people are or were Caucasians. Now, a word on naming. In both the popular literature
and the scientific literature the names of the people and
the places slide around, so we talk about Caucasian,
we talk about Circassian, we talk about Georgian, and those terms function almost interchangeably
outside of Russia, but in the historical period, that is before the 20th century, before the late 20th century, those people were synonyms
of the most beautiful people in the world; and if you ask Georgians,
that is from the Republic of Georgia, if you ask them now, is it true Georgians are
the most beautiful people in the world? What do they say? Yes.
(audience laughing) I haven’t met Circassians
and I haven’t met people from the Caucasus who
themselves Caucasians, so I don’t know their answer. Within Russian, however,
Caucasians are the subject of negative stereotype
and, as a young American living in Moscow explains
in this snippet of a video. – Well basically, what I wanna talk about is what is the deal with
the Caucasians in Moscow? And I’m not like a racist
person or anything, especially ’cause I’m black. Like, how am I gonna be racist in Russia about other people? But it’s not even that. I mean, like, all right, let me explain. There’s always a huge group of them and it’s like, they don’t
socialize with the Russians there. It’s hard to explain. Like, I have a great Caucasian friend. He lives in Russia. Sorry, I forgot what countries he’s from. He’s probably watching
this video right now, but yo, it’s early in the morning, I was drinking last night,
I’m sure George understands; but I have a great friend
named George, he’s Caucasian and he doesn’t even like the
average Caucasian in Russia. Now, from what I hear from people is that they’re dangerous,
they carry knives, they carry guns and all this stuff and maybe that is and maybe that isn’t, but I just wanna know that deal ’cause apparently, from
what I hear from a number of Russian people that
Caucasians are disliked more than blacks in Russia, like African black, and I’m like holy crap, you know. They’re hated more than us? I didn’t think that was possible. (audience laughing) – The view from Moscow. Now, in February 2014, the winter Olympics will begin in Sochi,
which is the black series or in the western Caucasus and you are going to be
hearing more about Sochi this afternoon and also in February. Meanwhile, back in the United States, scientific literature freely
employs the word Caucasian as a term taken for granted
to mean white people or non-black people or
non-people of color. So, it’s a word that’s still circulating and it still circulates
because it still circulates. It has a place in American jurisprudence. For instance, Judge
Anthony Kennedy’s opinion for the Supreme Court of the United States in Fisher versus University
of Texas at Austin in June of this year. Kennedy mentioned without
pausing that the petitioner, that is Abigail Noel
Fisher, who is Caucasian. Kennedy’s statement prompted
a New York Times reporter to ask, has Caucasian lost its meaning? And this article was on
the sixth of July, 2013. I’m actually quoted in it. The reporter, Shaila
Dewan, notes in her piece and this is her quote: in 1889, the editors of the
Oxford English Dictionary noted that the term Caucasian had been practically discarded. 1889. She continues: but they spoke too soon. Blumenbach’s authority had given the word a pseudo-scientific sheen
that preserved its appeal. Even now, the word gives
discussions of race a weird technocratic gravitas,
as when the police insist that you step out of your
vehicle instead of your car. There is a short answer to my question. Short, but opaque. In the late 18th century
Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, an 18th century German
scholar assigned the name to people living in western Europe to the River Ob in
Russia to northern Africa and to India, called them Caucasians. So, large group of people. Blumenbach enjoyed a scholarly reputation that gave his designation enormous heft and it got picked up very quickly. Although the term Caucasian
now has many synonyms, including white, it
retains a certain currency by dent of repetition. So, the short answer
is that skull, you see. The fuller and longer
answer is complicated and it entails the history
of scholarly exchange, Russian Imperialism, and
notions of human beauty. So, the short answer first. Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, the father of physical anthropology, the father of scientific anthropology, call the people in Europe over to India, well into Russia and
north Africa Caucasians because they were the most
beautiful in the world and here you have Blumenbach and the skull that inspired the designation and Blumenbach says, also
for the determination of the really most
beautiful form of skull, which in my beautiful typical head of a young Georgian
female always of itself attracts every eye,
however little observant. So, the author of De Generis
Humani Varietate Nativa, written in Latin, Blumenbach had 82 skulls and this made him an
expert in human taxonomy. He made a fivefold designation
taxonomy of human types, he called them varieties, and he arranged them from left to right. Now, this is now a
hierarchical arrangement. Some of you may know
Stephen J Gould’s book, The Mismeasure of Man. Do you know that book? Yeah. So, Gould shows a triangle
with the Caucasian skull at the top. That’s not the way Blumenbach laid it out. Blumenbach was a believer
in the unity of mankind. He was a black bibliophile in the sense that he collected books by black authors. He really believed in
the unity of mankind. So, he arranged the skulls
according to difference. So, at the two ends were the
Mongolian and the African and he thought of them as the extremes. In the middle is the beautiful one. It’s the gorgeous median
and that’s the Caucasian. And then, the ones beside the Caucasian are the American and the Malay because he thought those
were the intermediate races. In short, Blumenbach’s
most beautiful skull, the one in the middle, gave
this large group of people, which we can call white people
but includes many others, the name Caucasian. Now, a fuller answer. We need to look at Russian Imperialism and English Imperialism,
scholarly networks and slavery. Slavery, which gave rise to
the figure of the Odalisque, that is the beautiful, white slave girl as a figure of quintessential beauty. So, this is about beauty
not only of skulls, but also of slave girls, but whose skulls were
these and how did they get to Blumenbach in Germany? The skull that made white people Caucasian was a gift of Georg
von Asch, 1729 to 1807, a Russian of German
background who had studied at Blumenbach’s Gottingen University and Asch was considered
one of the great fathers of the Gottingen Library
and all their collections. So, one of the five skulls embodied Blumenbach’s human varieties… I’m sorry, of those five skulls, two of them came from Asch-. Asch also sent skulls and
books and all sorts of things. So, here we have Asch giving
the skull to Gottingen. Now, Asch gave lots of
skulls to Blumenbach. Of the 82, something like
20 or 25 came from Asch-. Who was this man? He had some nice clothes. That’s one thing we know. He was a medical doctor who served in Catherine the Great’s armies when Catherine the Great
launched Imperialism at the expense of the Ottoman
Empire and others, as well. She was a Russian of German background, as many of the aristocratic Russians were, and Asch- served her Imperial designs. In the 1780s and 1790s, Catherine was taking over the Caucasus. She began with Georgia as a
protectorate of Russia in 1783 and remember, the beautiful
skulls was from Georgia. The Russian conquest of
the Caucasus took a century and entailed ethnic cleansing and genocide and to this day, every
time Russian power falters, Caucasians make a break for independence. So, two of Blumenbach’s
five skulls from Asch-. Two of Blumenbach’s five
skull scame from a wealthy and influential, ultimately
knighted English naturalist named Joseph Banks, 1743-1820. Banks had taken part in
Captain Cooke’s first voyage to the south seas in the 1760s, early 70s, and actually, for California. You probably all think
that eucalyptus are native to California, right? – [audience] No. – Where do they come from? – Australia.
– And who brought them there? (multiple responses)
Banks. I mean, he didn’t bring them here, but Banks was one of those
people who saw things that would be useful in one place and said, why don’t you
take them somewhere else? So, we can thank Banks
for eucalyptus and acacia. He was a very wealthy young man and as a young man, he
corresponded with Linnaeus, the father of taxonomy,
and he actually employed one of Linnaeus’s students as
his personal little Linnaeus. So, he headed the Royal
Society for many years and he sent Blumenbach the
skulls that Blumenbach labeled American and Malay. The Malay one was from Tahiti and Banks sent his men in the bounty over to Tahiti to dig up breadfruit. He said breadfruit would
be a very useful thing to have in Saint Vincent in the Caribbean. Good thing to eat, cheap. So, he sent his men out
to dig up the breadfruit. They spent months and
months and months doing that and during that time, they made liaisons with local women and one of
the reasons for the mutiny on the bounty was having to leave Tahiti to go to Saint Vincent
with the breadfruit. So, Banks was also a connoisseur of skulls and he sent the American
skull and the Malay skull, so now we’ve accounted for
four of the five skulls. The fifth skull, which
was labeled Ethiopian, came from a professor at
the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and
I have not been able to identify him beyond the
name that Blumenbach gave and spelled it Steph-Jo-Van-Guntz. Can’t find him, but we know
that the skull is female and that he called it Ethiopian. Blumenbach did not provide the names of four of his five skulls. He called them typical skulls,
but he kept careful records, careful enough that the
individuals begin to emerge if we look more closely and
bring together the images and the words. So, the Mongolian skull is
the only skull with a name. It’s called Mongolian. Blumenbach calls it Mongolian, but we know that the owner
of it lived in Siberia. This is one of Asch’s skulls. The Ethiopian we know
was the common-law wife of a man who brought her
from west Africa from Africa to the Netherlands and,
considering the traffic, probably she was from Ghana,
what we now call Ghana, and we know that she died in
Amsterdam in her 28th year. The American lived in the
Caribbean island of Saint Vincent and this is the Saint Vincent where Banks had close friends, including
the head of the royal garden, so we know that the Carib
chief’s bones were dug up for Banks and then, sent to Blumenbach. And then, the skull labeled
Malay belonged to a Tahitian, most likely one of the
wives or girlfriends of the sailors whom Banks had sent to dig up breadfruit trees. The one in the middle, the Caucasian, a Georgian woman, very young
by the look of her teeth. Do any of you know what
used to happen to women when they became pregnant? What happened to their teeth? Lots of cavities and fewer teeth. So, before the age of
fluoride and good dentists, when women got pregnant, they
very often lost their teeth. This woman has all her teeth. This is a very young woman who’s fate was exceedingly unhappy. A young Georgian female, after
her venereal sudden death, send to the Theatrum
Anatomicum for legal obduction. That is to say, after she
died of venereal disease, a scientist boiled her down
and sent her skull to Asch and Asch sent it to
Gottingen to Blumenbach. The Georgian’s death through sex and Blumenbach’s linking
of Caucasians with beauty belongs to a longer tradition. I don’t know when the tradition started, I know it goes back to the
17th century in western Europe, I suspect it may be of
Ottoman or Iranian beginnings. Now, remember Blumenbach’s
hymn to the beauty of his Georgian skull? Really, the most beautiful form of skull in which my beautiful typical head of a young Georgian female. In this regard, Blumenbach
joined a tradition dating back to the 17th century that called Caucasians,
Circassians, or Georgians the most beautiful people in the world and this, at least in
that part of the world, is a tradition that lives on. (upbeat hip hop music) Nice looking people, huh? And young. (audience laughing) One of the earliest Europeans to attempt to categorize people by body
type was Francois Bernier, 1625 to 1688, a French
physician and traveler who became the personal
physician of the Mughal Emperor of India for 12 years. In the image that I’ve made
for you, Bernier sits down below there by the bush under his more illustrious compatriot, Jean Chardin. Bernier’s 1684 publication
Nouvelle Division de la Terre par les Différentes Espèces
ou Races Qui L’Habitent is considered the first
post-classical classification of humans into distinct races. In Nouvelle Division de
la Terre, he had referred to the beauty of
Circassian women as assumed by all the travelers. All the travelers. In a 1667 letter from Shiraz, Persia, Bernier describe the
burning of widows in India. At this point in his career,
he was evidently going around watching widows being
burned because he described several of the burnings:
older ones, younger ones, and so forth, and at one
burning he was together with Jean Chardin, who was another illustrious French traveler who
was also a jewelry merchant. It was Chardin’s description
of beautiful Georgians that Blumenbach quoted
in his book as proof that Circassian beauty or Georgian beauty was agreed upon by scientists. Chardin’s Journal du
Voyage du Chevalier Chardin en Perse et aux Indes
Orientales par la Mer Noire et par la Colchide, 1689, this book is the authority
that Blumenbach refers to when he speaks about Georgian beauty. For Chardin, the blood of
Georgia is the most beautiful in the Orient and I would
have to say in the world, for I have never noticed
an ugly face of either sex in this country and some
are downright angelic. Nature has endowed most
of the women with graces not to be seen in any other place. I have to say it is
impossible to look at them without falling in love with them and this is a quote from Chardin and Chardin is together
with contemporary Georgians, that is Georgians of our
time and also the most famous Georgian of the 20th
century, Joseph Stalin. Now, by the time Blumenbach
wrote in the late 18th century, Chardin’s view was commonplace and the world’s most illustrious
philosopher, Immanuel Kant, agrees with Chardin and with Blumenbach. In observations on the
feeling of the beautiful and the sublime of 1763, Kant says, Circassian and Georgian maidens have always been
considered extremely pretty by all Europeans who
travel through their lands and Kant goes on to repeat something that appears over and over and over again in this literature, that the Caucasians, the Georgians, the Circassians
sell their children, particularly their girls to the Turks and to the Arabs and
the Persians for reasons of what we would call eugenics, that is to beautify the race, and then Kant and all the
others slime the Turks by saying they really needs in. (gasps from the audience) Exactly. Now, much better known in
the English speaking world was a traveler and Cambridge professor named Edward Daniel Clarke, 1769 to 1822. Clarke wrote Travels in
Various Countries of Europe, Asia, and Africa, first published in 1810, but republished and revised
and republished and revised, republished in the United States, as well. So, Clarke was a much
better known authority in the United States
on this issue than Kant or Chardin or Bernier;
and for Clarke, again, as an eye witness, he also
testified that the women of the Caucasus are the
most beautiful in the world. He was a tutor in Jesus College
in Cambridge University, a member of the Academy
of Sciences in Berlin, and the Cambridge Philosophical Society, and many other learned
societies that formed an important scholarly network. So, in Clarke’s work, the
notion of Circassian beauty or of Georgian beauty
is taken for granted. Now, what is this lady? This is 1850s, a Circassian
beauty in the United States. This is Barnum’s American Museum and in the 1850s and 60s,
Barnum showed several women all with afros as Circassian beauties, the most beautiful women in the world and for American audiences,
examples of white purity. Now, why the headdress or why the hair? I mean, we know why the hair. She had hair like this
and she let it grow. (audience laughing) But, why was this
associated with Circassians? This is the headdress
of Circassian warriors, so the woman in New York,
her hair echos the headdress. Now, over and over
again in the authorities I’ve mentioned to you,
the idea of the beauty of Caucasians is linked with the idea of the slavery of Caucasians. So, before the Atlantic slave trade to the western hemisphere shaped our ideas about what slave trades are all about, there was a slave trade
from this part of the world, that is the Caucasus,
Ukraine, Crimea, and so forth, and that trade goes back
before the reaches of time. This is Herodotus. Herodotus writing in the fifth century BC, writing about the enumeration
of taxes and tributes paid to the Persian kingdom, collected from the lands it had controlled and the lands even far
away in the distance. He said that a voluntary
contribution was taken by the Colchians, that is the Georgians, and the neighboring tribes
between them and the Caucasus and it consisted of,
and still consists of, that is in the fifth century BC, every fourth year 100 boys and 100 girls. This was before Herodotus could even see the beginnings of it. I should add Herodotus
also mentioned the tribute from the southern most part of the edges of the Persian world
and that was for people called Ethiopians and what
they owed was gold and ivory. People were not mentioned. So, the Black Sea slave
trade was the slave trade in the western world
until the 15th century when the Ottomans captured Constantinople and cut the Black Sea
off from western Europe. At that point, 15th century,
the Atlantic slave trade becomes the western slave trade. So, let’s go back to Jean
Chardin for a moment. His famous words of
1689 actually described a familiar experience in
the Black Sea in the 1660s. This was Chardin, who
was in the cameo there. Chardin was actually on a
voyage to India to buy jewelry, but he couldn’t go his
usual way, the southern way, so he went through the
Caucasus, which he hated. He hated it. But in the Black Sea area,
he describes a situation where he was on a boat
with captives, with slaves, and he talks about one
particular woman who was 25 with a smooth, even, lily white complexion and admirably beautiful features. I have never before seen such
beautifully rounded breasts. That beautiful woman
inspired overall sensations of desire and compassion. Now, it turned out that on
that voyage and on that boat was a Greek trader and Greeks handled that long-standing Black Sea slave trade. So, Chardin tells us what people cost. He says in crowns. I have translated it into pounds, so you can get a sense of
what we’re talking about. Pretty girls aged 13 to 18
went for about 60 pounds, plainer girls for less, women went for about 36 pounds, children from nine to 12 pounds, men aged 25 to 40 for about 45 pounds, those older, only about
24 pounds to 30 pounds. The Greek merchant whose room was next to Chardin’s on the boat
bought that beautiful woman with the baby at her
breast for about 36 pounds. Daniel Edward Clarke, our Cambridge don, also located Circassian
beauty, or Caucasian beauty, in the enslaved. The Circassians frequently
sell their children to strangers, particularly to Persians and Turkish Seraglios. The most beautiful prisoners
of both sexes go there. He speaks of one particular
Circassian female who was 14, who was conscious
of her great beauty, who feared her parents would sell her according to the custom of the country. How much? The women selling generally
from 25 to 30 rubles a piece, somewhat less than the price of a horse. The beautiful young slave
girl became a figure and she had a name, Odalisque. She combines the powerful
notions of beauty, sex, and slavery. In American and European art, in the 19th century particularly, she looks like the white girl next door, but she is a slave, so you
can do with her as you will. Ingres, Jerome, Powers,
and Matisse specialized in Odalisque paintings. The figure of the
Odalisque faded from memory as the Black Sea slave trade
ended in the late 19th century and the Atlantic slave
trade overshadowed that from the Black Sea. Today, the word slavery
invariably leads to people of African descent. Americans seldom associate
the word Odalisque with slavery in the Americas
and, parenthetically, today many American painters
use Odalisque figures, Mickalene Thomas for
instance, has done a series of what she calls American Odalisque, but the phrase and the
figure of the Odalisque has lost its association with slavery and now, in American art
history and in contemporary American art, Odalisque simply refers to a beautiful woman, usually unclothed. Now, in North and South American history, the Odalisque-like figure
appears in the guise of the beautiful quadroon, in Uncle Tom’s Cabin, for instance, Eliza and her son, Harriet
Beecher Stowe’s work. The Caucasus and Russian Imperialism, although the Odalisque
association of Caucasian beauty and white slavery has
slipped out of memory, the Caucasus continues
as a region and revolt against Russian control. Caucasians have not forgotten
the ethnic cleansing they suffered in their 100
Years War against Russians, which cost at least half
a million Caucasian lives and you will see part of this
in part of the recent video, which mentions the slaughter of Caucasians in A Place Called Sochi. (speaking in a foreign language) Whenever Russian power
has seemed threatened, the Caucasian borderland has pulled away. After the second World War,
Joseph Stalin exiled millions of Circassians to Dagestan and Kazakhstan, places that came up in the story of the Boston Bombers last spring. As the Soviet Union broke apart, Chechnya struck out for independence and, more recently in 2008,
Georgia and Russia played a part in US policy discussions. In conclusion, Caucasian is only one term for people of European descent. The word used depends on the context and the route taken as its opposite, who’s speaking to whom, when,
where, and for what purpose? The use value of Caucasian
depends on its use, not on any basis in biological fact. The term Caucasian for white people grows from three main roots. One root lies in the
history of Imperialism, especially the Russian
campaigns of Catherine the Great and her army, and the German
trained medical doctor, Jorg von Asch, who sent so
many specimens to Blumenbach. British Imperialism also played its part in the person of Joseph Banks. One root lies in notions of beauty, Caucasians as the most
beautiful people in the world. And one root lies in
the idea and the ideal of enslaved women as especially beautiful, as in the Odalisque. Yes, the term Caucasian for
people of European descent is not only outmoded, it
is always been contingent. It didn’t work in pre-Holocaust Europe where divisions were drawn
between gentiles and Jews and Jews were racialized, even though they were of European descent. It didn’t work in
societies like the Balkans where religion divided people. So, you can use it if you want, but understand that it’s only
as scientific as its use. When researchers start using Caucasian to mean white Americans, the term will no longer be recognized. Now, a coda. On Thursday the 17th of October, 2013, the New York Times ran a front page story entitled Skull Fossil Suggests
Simpler Human Lineage, illustrated by skull five, another sensational Georgian skull. Dmanisi, Georgia, the
skull was one point eight million years old. This skull was found
along with four others, a group find unusual in archeology. Usually, skulls are found alone, leading anthropologists to
classify each different one as a different species. Each single skull usually
became the embodiment of a different group of humans, as was in the case with
Blumenbach’s five skulls. Each of his individual skulls,
the skulls of girlfriends or victims of sexual
assault became the figure for an entire classification of people. The group of skulls recently
found in Georgia, however, is leading to a reverse conclusion. Even though skull five and
each of the other skulls look different from one another, they’re all taken to
belong to the same group. The point of skull five’s
story is that ancient skulls, yes, differ from one another
not because they belong to different hominid species
as previously assumed, but because they belonged
to different individuals. Even people who had been dead
for more than a million years were individuals, not species. So, here we come full
circle from Blumenbach’s 18th century skulls, notably his beautiful female skull from Georgia, Blumenbach’s skulls had
belonged to individuals, but he classified them as racial types. In October 2013,
anthropologists finally realized that each individual is singular, that each skull’s owner
has its own life history. Thank you. (audience applauding) (upbeat electronic music)

  • I'm sorry but this is very very boring. There are a lot of useless tidbits in this.

  • There were many many many "white" tribes in antiquity on the earth…ranging from the Greeks and Etruscans of Europe, to the phoenicians and sumerians of the middle east, to central Asia and India. Caucasians are a very specific subset of "white" people. Caucasians originally came from Mesopotamia 1000s of years ago roughly during the time of the ancient Assyrian Empire, migrated over the Caucasus mts. (hence their name) and entered Europe…eventually becoming the Scythians, vandals, goths, visigoths, gauls, saxons, vikings, celts etc.

  • This presentation looks like it was put together by a 3rd grader

  • I thought her research, information and her deliverance was impeccable and fascinating. Personally I was hanging on every word and imagining these historical influential characters. It could only be assumed that these historical players had not idea at the time the impact they were setting forth onto our minds and future assumptions.

  • This is the typical type of speech that a lot of black people that attend these elite universities give; they are too boring, white washed, politically correct and scared to advocate, to stand for something or to present information that is unfiltered. She gets a thumbs down. Boring, Boring Boring.

  • I'm I the only one that got people are individuals and not a race from her lecture?

  • Only real Jews from the bible CAN AND WILL. rebuild the THIRD TEMPLE and it will be destroyed by God , rebuilding the third temple is sing of second coming of Jesus Christ , only real Hebrew Israelite !!! can and will rebuild the third temple it’s their prophecy !!!
    If you not real Jew Hebrew Israelite you can’t not rebuild THIRD TEMPLE IN ISRAEL the Prophecy by GOD HIM SELF !!! Only real Hebrew Israelite can fulfil this prophecy !!!!

    Have a nice day !!!

  • Shes got skills, 2 minutes of information spread over an hour

  • the blacks really are obsessed with the WHITE RACE!!! wow! Europeans blessed the world with all of the wealth and advancement that it has – so I gues that is why???
    we are a pure race – Europeans did not mix amongst themselves – Frans stayed Frans and German were Germans. For 1,000s of years. They claim Abraham as their heritage – as do the Jews, and the Arabs. it seems though, many want to blott out their identity and say they are not ! But the whites don't deny them their origins.

  • White people are not actually from the Caucus mountains.

  • The Comment section is among the worse on Youtube

  • Why don’t they teach this in high school instead of spending 6 months on the Roman Empire? Black People in America are only taught about their slavery and struggles nothing before or after and white people are only taught about their founding fathers and nothing before or after or how people actually lived. We’re taught to glorify racists, false scholars and fake scientists. All history books written before 2000 should be dumped and real college historians should write the history based on what we know now. Or at least include disclaimers that they omitted most important facts

  • Amen.

  • Another mixed race negroid/caucasoid over privileged, self hating women sharing her pseudo hate knowledge. An anti white writing about whites 🤣 go figure 🤯 Notice the pictures she uses to represent Caucasians are intended to defame them. She literally used a photo of the Boston bomber 🤯 As if he represents all Caucasians. She admits she has never met anyone from the caucus mountains yet she’s sharing her opinion as fact?! Then she uses some random negro kid on YouTube to support her findings of conflict between Caucasoids. She has no real understanding of race as she keeps referring to color when color is not synonymous with race🙄
    Why do we call Negroids negro?
    She is so bothered this Dr. finds his own race (Caucasoid) so beautiful.
    The out of Africa theory has been debunked! Caucasoid= a race of people of the Asian continent. Cauc-Asian🤴

  • TO THE BLACK THINKERS OUT THERE. Consider the following:-

    White people are NOT white, so what else are they saying that is NOT true?

    Consider also that, in order for you to deceive another person, you have to FIRST directly deceive the other person about yourself (e.g make them believe something about you that is NOT true).

    Sun Tzu, in The Art of War, states that "All warefare is based on deception".

    To further understand the methods of deception used, one needs to have sufficient understanding of (immature) psychological defense mechanisms, such as projection, denial, reaction formation and splitting, especially in realtion to the psychopathic personality disorder and narcissistic personality disorder (the two disorders are comorbid, meaning they share common traits).

    In closing, you are referred to the works and lectures by Dr Frances Cress Welsing, Dr Amos Wilson, Dr Bobby Wright, and Mr Neely Fuller Jr.

  • A relevant research, indeed. Would be, nonetheless, much more interesting to anchor the research on '' Why White People Are Referred To As Whites.''

  • This is what your tax dollars are being wasted on, Yanks. Universities are no longer places of education – they are now places of commie indoctrination. Don't send your kids to universities – send them to places where they will learn how to make money instead.

  • The only things students of this kind of course are being educated for is standing in crowds holding "FUCK TRUMP" signs…
    …and unemployment.

  • Actual caucasians such as Armenians Georgians Cyprus have color. They're not pink.

  • Man let me tell you something. The best looking Caucasian is the one that looks as if something else is in them, like Kim Kardashian. Kardashian is Armenian which has that dark almost middle eastern look. And when I mean dark I mean, dark hair and brown eyes and truly exotic look. The rest of the Caucasian race looks bland. They're no where near the best looking ethnicity that belongs to African Americans and Ethiopian girls, Eritrean and Somali plus Fulani women. Also I got to add multi racial Brazilian girls.

  • Indigenous man representing CemAnahauc ✊🏾

    You're Welcome Negros!

  • Greetings. Today I am going to talk—talk A WHOLE LOT—all about someone. Do you know who? YOOOUUU!!! So sit back, get comfortable, and "allow" me to "get down to business." The very best part is that you will THANK me when I am done.

  • Cave beast animal red-faced devil's

  • Were all Gods children 👥

  • Great info. Caucasians, black or white or yellow are not the right words to describe a person's color. Instead we should use the term DIFFERENT SHADES OF BROWN COLOR …for we all belong to one human race after the great flood.

  • What about the slave trade that happened in east Africa?

  • This lecture is garbage. Caucasians are the most beautiful people in the world??? Gtfoh

  • Cave dwelling fur wearing neanderthal with red skin speaking. (Lol)
    Not ONE black person which is not racist in this comment section. Only hate.
    Racism against whites by blacks.
    I love you guys. You can grow out of it. YOU CAN MAKE IT
    😂

  • Why white people are called Devils?

  • The fact she had to explain where the Caucasus are, shows the IQ of her audience

  • This passes for academics at uc… sad

  • So basically scholars made the assumption that the skulls we're of different races of people when in actually they all came from the same place. To ensure racial divide as well to enforce beauty standards of a particular race.

  • This woman is ruddy (reddish) brown, as are most of those designated erroneously as "black". Worthy of thought .

  • LAUGHABLE, Artificial Intelligence DECEPTION OF BEAUTY…..https://youtu.be/EBJPPOBu1d8

  • EVERYONE is racist. what's on the podium? international house of pancakes? lots of white ancestors never crossed the caucausus mountains. this lady is an idiot with a degree. tribe of Dan migrated along the Mediterranean…what are Japanese Anu? Basque?

  • If Yu want info check out Frances c wesling

  • Why you reading about these things, complete Bullocks…

  • You see how these people lie to put their races on the top? Most beautiful people my ass…i didnt see one angelic face these are pure blood decendents right where were the angels at?…kmt.

  • Selling their children to beautify another race this you see the disgusting history of their children and how they taught all to abuse children for their own ends.

  • U see His..story…pure lies.

  • Is it possible to block all content from the usa YouTube?

  • Nell painter = Agent!

    Listen to Rev Phil Valentine, Dr Delbert Blair, Dr Jon Henrik Clark, Dr Charles Finch, just to get an introduction to knowledge from scholars that are not agents.

  • i thought caucasian was in the middle?

  • In Versailles, the people of the kingdom didn't bathe. Also they would often urinate in the royal halls. England was so dirty that is was called the Great Stink. Do yo research 🙂

  • Georgian's are not the most beautiful. They are bit funny looking.

  • The problem with humanity is we don't want to accept anything different. You don't see all trees looking a like, you don't see all fishes looking a like etc. It's the same with humans, we're all different and when we learn to accept differences and respect each other then and only then we'll be able to live in peace and harmony. If we continue to to believe that skin tone means something when a white person and a black person can have the SAME blood type, then you're a ignorant fool.

  • I could have just googled it; why is this important ?

  • Question. Why are blacks called stupid? Answer. Lowest IQ on the planet. The average IQ of the American black is under 87 and committing 52% of all murders committed in America!

  • whires came from the caucshain mountains.

  • Adam,1st creation of man was a white 'ruddy' man !

    HEBREW CONCORDANCE

    119 'adam aw-dam' to show blood (in the face), i.e. flush or turn rosy:–be (dyed, made) red (RUDDY).

    120 'adam aw-dawm' from;
    "RUDDY" i.e. a human being (an individual or the species, mankind, etc.):–X another, + common sort,
    X low, man (mean, of low degree), person.

    121 'Adam aw-dawm' the same as 120; Adam the name of the first man, also of a place in Palestine:–Adam.

    GAME OVER ! 😇

  • At 25:27 ther ias a picture of Asch. The lecturer ias saying: "So, here we have Asch giving the skull to Gottingen." However, the city in the background is NOT Gottingen. It is not even a city in Germany. The background picture is Prague (Praha) the capitol of the Czech Republic 800 km far from Gottingen.
    I wonder how is it possible that a scientist can make such a mistake?

  • White privilege still exists in the U.S. They won't tell you or admit it because its a secret they don't want non-whites to know. Being a minority in the U.S. isn't a good thing, and even Richard Spencer the ultra conservative has admitted that which is why he's pushing white privilege to the forefront of American culture.

  • I'm not even going to bother watching more than 14:30, even after sitting through an introduction that was far too long. Why? The pictures portrayed as being the Bible of race thinking for the Federal government has stereotyped images of white people with obviously lower IQ's and 'red necks' with a beer in hand. That is like representing black folk with a big slice of watermelon in their hands. This is already biased.

  • They are Albion’s not Caucasian, wight and not white= lawful legal designat

  • Designation for Moor which is a asiatic,

  • If Egyptians were black or the Ancient Hebrews were black then you would see that in the booty. Egyptian booty and Hebrew booty is always depicted like the white women booty.

  • Sorry but this is such a dumbass title video. Why is it important to know why white people are called Caucasian. Useless information. I didn't watch most of the video

  • Bloomingbach was a bigot who should not be considered when speaking on the truth of peoples, but …

  • A BLACK WOMAN TALKING ABOUT THE WHITE RACE HOLD UP……..

  • This is fabulous ,that there are no PURE races,I repeat there are no PURE races .Scientific evidence reveals there are no biologicaly PURE races .

  • The negro professional is a monstrosity. The best race is of course, the white race, inside of that, the Aryan subrace, and inside of that the Mediterranean race group.
    The best ethnicity is Roman/Latin, and the only one that has the right to be compared to it, to some extent, is the Germanic ethnicity.
    Best nationalities are Italian, (plus other Latineuropean ones) and German (plus other Germanic ones).
    Butthurt inferiors will have their pussies wet and itchy while reading this.

  • The first americas was European. Check the migration.

  • The title is all wrong, it should be WHY are Caucasians called WHITE when clearly they are NOT WHITE!!!! in all my 50 years I got yet to see a white people, hold up a white sheet of paper, have you ever seen a person that color????? there called Caucasians because they came from the Caucasus Mountains!!!! not from AFRICA, not from AMERICA, not from AUSTRALIA

  • They don't like to be called caucasian because of the HIS STORY behind it. NEANDERTHAL, Caucasus Mountain, CAVEMAN, Hunter gatherer, the last to be civilized people. Everything new to them the world already had for eons. Language, the alphabets, mathematics, art, music, cultivation, proper diet and so on……Watch the move " The Quest for Fire " . Even a cave man can do it….lol…but personally, I call em plain ol CRACKERS….PEACE !!…

  • Reminds of the New York lawyer who wrote a book on right-wing militias.

  • Welcome to the internet a place of both shelter and war zone. A place that the most vile of things are recoded by words and innocent actions can be misconstrued as villainy. But within this place it is simply easy to become lock minded as I think the term is called where one is in an echo chamber. Often are people unknowns going there.

  • too slow —

  • The human history from all over the world unfortunately is full of wars, destruction, slave trade and pain.how long does it take to give ten examples from history? the presentation was way too long & slow

  • The hate and jealousy for white race shines through these imbecils giving the lecture. 14 🙂

  • All so called whites, red devils are fuken ugly,,, thiefs rapist murders DOGS!!!! THEY LIKE BLOODY MEAT!!!

  • It's funny how white people can accept all the bad things that was said about black people by white people, but when black people fire back, many white people have something to say. I've seen many videos where folks white talk about black folks like dogs. Less than human. And yet white folks don't respond like they do when it comes to black folks talking about white people. And yet they say all lives matter. We're all the same, blah blah blah. For the record white slaves, your real enemies are white like you. Plus Jew's are white people too. I was surprised by how many people in Hollywood I thought was white people and yet they call themselves Jew's. Your media lies all the time. The reality that white folks kill each other more than you have programmed them to kill themselves. Police is also killing white people, but you won't see that in your white controlled media. You guys are also having many babies out of wedlock but the media and white America only focus on black people. More white people are on food stamps than blacks. We do not make up the majority of the crime in America. Let alone, around the world. Even now your white government/congressmen are making up lies to try to go with Iran. Just like 911. Your white government did that and lied on the so called middle east.

  • Sorry to say black folks, we are not Israelites. That Bible is about the destruction of black civilizations. Reverse psychology. There good at that. That Bible is their manifest destiny.

  • another shitstain trying to put herself on the shoulders of white people and play tall

  • Painter is an ugly racist cow

  • Also known as COCKasoid… I couldn't help myself 😆😆😂😂

  • Another over educated numbskull, a chronic lip smacker speaks as if she knows something; especially concerning beauty, as if she’s a member of the most beautiful people in the world! Dishonest at best, she doesn’t even know what the colors black and white look like. The better and more intelligent question is Why white people are called white? Painter calls herself black, when her skin color is brown; then refers to Caucasians, light skinned peoples as “white” while their skin is actually translucent, their color as seen is that of flesh and blood. Her scholarship has failed because there’s no such thing as white people, just like there’s no such thing as human beings … And if she pulled her scholarship head out of her southern hemisphere, she might just discover these simple truths. Unless she’s really a colorblind painter.

  • ya, i call all my black friends negroid, oh and im half mongoloid

  • Ya ll need to research this piece of shit thats hiding behind the scenes, instigating the tensions between blacks and whites. George Soros. He’s a Jew from Hungry, they banned his ass from his own country for trying to cause unrest and riots, that’s exactly what he is doing here, he’s making it seem like whites and blacks are attacking each other and this motherfucker is sitting back patting hisself on the back laughing hoping to cause a race war.. He’s a billionaire who made billions by causing financial markets of smaller countries to collapse and then he moves in and clean up the money, he’s caused old retired people to lose they pensions and now they have nothing, he said in a interview he has no remorse and does not feel bad for these old people who lost everything because of his nazi ass. This old motherfucker needs to be eliminated for good he 100% evil. His goal he said is to create a no boarders anywhere utopia. He said he feels like he is a God, This piece of shit is pure evil. He wants us to kill each other to create his new world order. That’s exactly what he called it. Someone need to pull up on this bitch.

  • The problem is that blacks can't handle the freedom their ancestors didn't have

  • The very notion of “race” is a false social construct. It has no scientific validity at all. None. There’s no such thing as a people called “Caucasians”. There are several ethnic groups who live in the Caucasus Mountains. None of them are called “Caucasians”. Nor are there any people called “Negroid”. Racism is a remnant of 19th century pseudoscience. Like Freudian psychology, it’s been thoroughly debunked but still persists among the general public.

  • Dame we know where they come from. You ant told us anything. What I want to know is why are you scared of Caucasian neanderthal cave beast. Where in your videos on who created them filthy Caucasian homosexual pedophiles. Having pigmentation protect you from the sun why would god create a race of people that lack pigmentation what happened in there history that would make god curse them from birth

  • 34:17 slide-show…99% of them was Chechens people.

  • She should speak a little faster..too slow god!

  • My Eurogenes K9 admixture results has me as 80.36% North European, 13.65% Mediterranean and 3.27% Caucasus.

  • She's right about one thing at least, the Kurds, near the Caucases are mesmerizingly beautiful. I had always thought they were just wandering tribes of momrels. Then my son told me to look at them on youtube. I was absolutely bowled over by their beauty. Blonde or red hair, green or blue eyes. Now the various terrorist groups want to rape them and mongrelize them. It ought to be a damned crime of genocide

  • She should put her effort into teaching her black people their own history !!!

  • This is a total waste of time !!!

  • Watching a black woman speak about white people its like watching a woman talk about penis disfunction

  • What I’m baffled by is ppl mad she is educating ppl on Caucasian history like white Ppl doesn’t try to educate people on black history like it’s their own

  • SCOTUS finding: U.S. v. Bhagat Singh Thind (1923)…"Not All Caucasians Are White…", http://historymatters.gmu.edu/d/5076/

  • I don’t get women like you. What happened to black farmers? Why are white people called Caucasians? Ask Jeff Holiday. Have him do a video supercut and laugh at black farmers and other black facts. . You look and sound ridiculous wait you laugh at your own self and people then try to educate us on the same shit you laugh at? Do u even know who u are?

  • A Caucasian is a genetically dead asian…

  • Of course it’s a Black woman. The only people who talk about race are Black people.

  • Whites came out them caves with low self esteem and wanted to change their status as bottom in the human family to the top.

  • 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂
    Oh god. Religious fanatics and "science". I just can't 🤣.
