greeks called egyptians barbarians

The Greeks were saying "pas mh ellhn varvaros" whoever is not a greek is a barbarian.The word Barbarian "Barbaros" was used as a derogatory term from very early on. Whoever wasn't compliant with the rule of the successful city states and didn't pay taxes was slaughtered like it happened in Delos and many greek colonies ... and the whole golden age of philosophy was based on the manual labour of captured slaves. So yes Greek and Roman civilisations are the true cultural ancestors of modern Europe and America.
