    This article reads like something I’ve seen on white supremacist websites. Many of the articles on those sites seem to promote the view that at the core of every major civilization there were white people who made it great.

    Why is there a need to conclude that the presence of Caucasian DNA nearby might mean that they influenced the art of the Terra Cotta soldiers? Can’t China have it’s own innovators in art?

      I agreed. A presence of a little DNA dont prove anything. those DNA may as well be slaves or prisoners captured. There were evidence that the first emperor sent his subjects to different part of the world looking for eternal youth and life remedies. Similar doesn’t mean they are from the Greeks and taught by the Greeks. The Chinese might as well learn all of these on their own. Even if they are from the Greek, it is possible they weren’t voluntary as they claimed but tortured and interrogated and then forced to build the statues and the great wall.

      Hey man the Chinese people make everything that is in America today so I think it’s okay that white people made your Asian statues

About the author

Ginger Perales

Ginger Perales

When Ginger's original dream of writing the next great American novel didn’t quite work out she turned her thoughts to math and science. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering, after which she spent 18 years employed with a city public works department which allowed her to write the great American mortgage check. But that's all behind her now (except for the mortgage) since she seized the opportunity to start a freelance writing career - can the novel be far behind? She lives in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States with her husband of 26 years (talk about history!) and when not at the computer enjoys cheering for her favorite football teams, home improvement projects and a good mystery novel. Her favorite points in History are those when engineering had a profound effect on the people of the time, from the Roman aqueduct of Segovia, c. A.D. 50, to the Panama Canal, c. 1914, to whatever's next.
