To the anon whose question I answered earlier
To the anon whose question I answered earlier: those recent quotations I posted ought to also answer your question. China had no traditional terms for either dmab or dfab ppl. Yet, they have history of both.
I firmly believe that if all iaopoc cultures had as much written history, we’d have a lot more concrete examples.
Above all: never underestimate how much of our culture that white ppl have managed to erase or destroy. Our lives and realities have always been diverse and complex.
