  1. Bede was actually rather prejudiced against the native Britons. For example, in Chapter XII of Ecclesiastical History of the English People, he calls them “piteous” and their country “wretched”; he goes on to say they are driven by cowardice rather than courage. It’s not Lovecraft’s implication that Africans aren’t proper humans, but still well into jerk territory.
