A Race to the “Rational”
Benjamin Isaac

Could it be that Trump Jr.’s latest “skittles” comment, taken as quoted from a Nazi propagandist, also has roots in the Classics? I discovered this article in pursuit of this nagging sensation I’m experiencing that something of the sort was articulated in, say, Herodotus or Thucydides, and would appreciate help if anything is occurring to the author in this connection…If the answer is to be found in “The Origins of Racism in Classical Antiquity”, I anticipate that I’ll know just as soon as I have another audible credit and will happily settle for a “yes”;)
