    early europeans in the case of the greeks and the romans; so they are duly evil. as for the Egyptians, there are two possibilities. 1: that's just their culture and you are racist for not being more understanding and tolerant or 2: they were enslaving jews, who later would found the apartheid state of israel, so it was okay.
