Eric was an intellectual and man of high learning and mischief. He wrote several books on how Africans made the white man rich. Recently, some Africans demanded compensation for the large amount of Africans who were taken away and made to clean the white man toilet.
You can't compare BP with Eric. The times and seasons were different. However it would be appropriate to compare Eric with Manning. The one thing Manning learned from Eric was arrogance which his supporters clearly display on this board.
