Black Activists and Ignorance

In a show of what ignorance that revisionist history engengenders, Black protesters are picketing the King Tut exhibit in L.A.

They are protesting that a recreation bust made from cat scans of the Phaeroh's mummy depict him as "white". Regardless of what the Black Historical revisionists have tried to claim over the last ten years or so, the Egyptions DIDN'T have airplanes, DIDN'T have some form of mysterious power sources capable of levitation, and they were NOT a Negroid race. They certainly weren't lily white either, they were a Semetic people along the lines of Arabs and Hebrews.

Black history is something that is important to be taught, just as all history is, but some of the current revisionist views of that history does a disservice to the truth, and sets back support for teaching that history.

Mr Cleggs contention that the Egyptions were descended from the Nubians is a blatent demonstration of ignorance. The Nubians were enslaved by the Egyptions, and were a co-inhabiting race of the period. That is from the written records of the ancient Egyptions themselves, and from the tomb paintings in the Valley of Kings; and from the Roman Empire that conquered the region in a later era. The Romans were very specific in their historical records, and they made the distinction between Nubian and Egyption.

The Nubian Empire in itself is a thing to be proud of in Black history; it was the richest kingdom ever seen prior to the rise of the Egyption Empire. There is no need to usurp the Egyption history except from those that feel some sort of inadequacy because they have been led astray by revisionists trying to make a name for themselves with un-founded CRAP trying to pass for history.

Correct me if I'm wrong. It's been over forty years since college Anthropology, but weren't the Egyptians also a light-skinned subrace known as Indo-Europeans?

They were not "white" in the sense that these racist idiots claim, and were certainly not....Negroid or Caucasian. Pardon the N-word, but I think it's still valid.

Reminds me of the CLeopatra non-controversy a few years ago. A proff found that they didn't know the race of her grandmother. Obviously she's Nubian then right? Never mind that the rest of her relations are Ptolemaic Greeks, nope, she's Nubian.
Greatness comes from within, not from the existence of someone in the past. One is either great because of their own actions or not at all.

I am a pure Egyptian woman. I can tell you that if you saw me walking down any American street you would certainly consider me black. Egypt, a place that obviously none of you have travelled to, is in Africa. The original inhabitants were black skinned and the later migrants were lighter Mediterranean types. The 18th dynasty, which King Tut belongs to, is no different than my family or any African family for that matter.It represents the varied colors of Africa.
