And in the age of the Swine loving Asiatic it was called Swine Fever. Both the Asiatic and the Swine were reviled in Ancient Africa, so Egypt's actions aren't unusual or new; although there is some irony in the fact that modern Egyptians are the Africanized descendents of the "Vile Asiatic" The Sus (Sus Scrofa) have always been sucio; not sure if their herders were considered sucio/dirty/vile/abominable because their herds were vile or if the ancients knew something we’ve lost in translation. Like the Sus, the Asiatic was reintroduced into the African “Fauna” between 20k-10k years ago. Can anyone say Last Glacial Maximum? Hope the chosenists don’t take offense to being referred to as Animal Life, its nothing personal.
