I never knew they were two! I would imagine that such a thing would not
fare well with the anthropological community these days. I don't think they
measure levels of civilization although the one i enjoyed the most was
was determined by the level of lies. So called less civilizations it appears
often don't know how to lie:-). Then again if all Politicians really
truth to us or our neighbors ,war would have destroyed us all.
I believe there was elements of African American culture one of them believed
was not quite african which got him in trouble with his black brothers.
remember the specifics.
The important thing is that they were collected and would be lost for good.
Often those confronting elements not familiar make mistakes. I believe
important at times not to be afraid to misunderstand, as a step toward a
latter understanding. I do it even here among my own tribes!
