I've been thinking about asking such a question and when I say "misconception", I do mean it as "a view or opinion that is incorrect because it is based on faulty thinking or understanding."
The purpose of my question is -- because I see quite a few questions that's just plain wrong (i.e. historians and newer research told us so) -- so I would like to know why the assumptions/misconceptions keeps coming up.
I do wonder, if at all possible, how do I know/find out what are the areas of misunderstanding. I won't ask why they have such views (that is personal) but I would like to know what it is that they misunderstood about these group of people in history.
Is this question permitted?
