In the 1600's Shakespeare wrote a play, "Othello", wherein the leading lady is married to a black moor, Othello. The play caused no uproar in society about race. If you study a thousand years of Roman history, and add another thousands years of the Byzantine empire, an offshoot of Rome, you will find almost nothing about racial superiority. Racism, as we know it, doesn't really begin until the Imperalism age where countries like England and Spain, in subjugating new lands, needed moral justification for that subjugation.
