You know what the Nazis were famous for? Changing history to suit their purposes. You know what the British did to those people living in India? Imposed a history on them that may not have been true. Why does it matter who is descended from whom way back then when ethnicity was not so structured, or at least not defined in the *same* sense as we define it these days? Do you see what I'm pointing at? The superimposition of one culture's (broadly described as Western culture's) way of viewing, defining, & symbolizing things onto another culture's (broadly - any "other" culture's) history.
