The ever-brilliant and politically wakeful Rebecca Solnit has revised the Declaration of Independence to address our present political, social, and spiritual crisis. (Sent via email by Solnit herself.)
It seems to me from (high school history class) that medieval European society was intolerant of differences. Any difference from the majority were frowned upon. How did nonPOCs in medieval Europe view POCs, who were in the minority in terms of skin color being different from the majority of their neighbors? Did they 1) perceive that there was a difference? 2) did they believe pigmentation made someone "other", or was it insignificant, as inconsequential as having a different hair color?
