Well these pics should put to rest the notion that AE is a SubSaharan, West African Civilization.
It was truly a mixed society, like most sane people agree on. The Egyptians NOW are the Egytians THEN.
AND I TOLD YOU THAT THEY ARE NOT WHITE EUROPEAN, THIS WEBSITE POINTS OUT THAT DO NOT TAKE THE COLOR OF IMPORTANCE BUT THE TEXTURE. EACH MUMMIE IS DIFFERENT
THOUGH, SO WHO KNOWS.
BOTTOM LINE AE WERE NOT BLACK AFRICANS OR DESCENDENTS OF AFRICAN AMERICANS!!!!
Stop believing Afrocentrics just because they are black, they don't care about historical truth. They only care about making themselves seem better than all other races of man.
Afrocentrism is racist. It supports ignorance in the black community.
*smh*

That person does not know what they are talking about. If they were white why are nearly all of the drawings on the walls of the tombs show black skinned people? And straight to loosely wavy and curly hair is found in many blacks in East Africa and is not due to admixture at all. Sorry.

1.The mummy of the wife of King Tutankhamen has auburn hair.
2.A mummy with red hair, red mustache and red beard was found
by the pyramids at Saqqara.
3.Red-haired mummies were found in the crocodile-caverns of Aboufaida.
4.The book HISTORY OF EGYPTIAN MUMMIES mentions a mummy with
reddish-brown hair.
5.The mummies of Rameses II and Prince Yuaa have fine silky yellow
hair. The
mummy of another pharaoh, Thothmes II, has light chestnut-colored
hair.
6.An article in a leading British anthropological journal states that
many mummies have dark reddish-brownhair. Professor Vacher De Lapouge
described a blond mummy found at Al Amrah, which he says has the face
and skull measurements of a typical Gaul or Saxon.
7.A blond mummy was found at Kawamil along with many
chestnut-colored ones.
8.Chestnut-haired mummies have been found at Silsileh.
9.The mummy of Queen Tiy has "wavy brown hair."
10.Unfortunately, only the mummies of a very few pharaohs have
survived to
the 20th century, but a large proportion of these are blond.
11.The Egyptians have left us many paintings and statues of blondes
and redheads. Amenhotep III's tomb painting shows him as having light
red hair. Also, his features are quite caucasian
12.A farm scene from around 2000 B.C. in the tomb of the nobleman
Meketre shows redheads.
13.An Egyptian scribe named Kay at Sakkarah around 2500 B.C. has blue
eyes.
14.The tomb of Menna (18th Dynasty) at West Thebes shows blond girls.
The god Horus is usually depicted as white. He is very white in the
Papyrus Book of the Dead of Lady Cheritwebeshet (21st Dynasty), found
in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
15.A very striking painting of a yellow-haired man hunting from a
chariot can be found in the tomb of Userhet, Royal Scribe of Amenophis
II. The yellow-haired man is Userhet. The same tomb has paintings of
blond soldiers. The tomb of Menna also has a wall painting showing a
blond man supervising two
dark-haired workers scooping grain.
16.The Funerary stele (inscribed stone slab)of Priest Remi clearly
shows him as having red hair,
No such thing as Caucasian features. East African blacks have "Caucasian" features and majority of them are 100% black. The "blonde" hair is nothing but head cloths or may represent shaved heads. Since the head would be lighter since there is no sunlight exposed to it. The ancient Egyptians dyed their hair red using ochre, like many other Africans still do today. That's the red hair you are looking at. It's not natural.

Muslim 3901 - Muhammad trades away two black slaves for one Muslim slave.

(Surah 9:61) Muslims are told that Africans "annoy the Prophet"
(Ishaq 243), have hearts "grosser than a donkey" ,

(Bukhari: Volume 4, Book 52, Number 137)and that blacks should be left to die if injured, and should be denied intercession and entrance to heaven

Letter from a EGYTPIAN to a Afrocentric Nutjob Dr. Asante.
----------
Molefi Kete Asante:
The ancient Egyptians were "North Africans", not "Africans", and not "Arabs", as it seems that you erroneously use the word African to mean black. Not all Africans are/were black, and similarly not all Asians are "yellow". There are the Japanese, the Indians, the Russians, the Persians, etc.- they all do not look the same and are not of the same race, if that is so important to you. The ancient Egyptians, being "North African", were separated from "black" Africa by a vast Sahara desert, much wider than the little Mediterranean "pond" that separated them from the Europeans, hence, as I told you before, they had/have "a skin tone which is neither 'European' white, nor 'African' black". They were certainly a stone-throw away from their much closer neighbors in Phoenicia and Carthage.... and of a much closer "racial" make-up to their closer neighbors than to those south of the Sahara. People across the entire North Africa and the Middle East generally have and have always had an olive skin color; what would have made the Egyptians different? Even the Nubians, in the extreme south of Egypt and in the Northern Sudan, are not as thick-lipped and large-nostrilled as the blacks (in the middle and southern sections of Sudan and) in sub-Saharan Africa, to be racially classified as "black" as in your usage of the word "African". They are a race of their own, but again, that seems to be YOUR hang-up. Please compare photos of Egypt's most famous Nubian, singer Mohamed Mounir, and famous sub-Saharan actor from Benin, Djimon Hounsou. Also check out photos of ancient Egyptian kings and queens, including those you mentioned "Ramses II, Hatshepsut, and King Tut". Do they look anything like Djimon Hounsou?
It would NOT bother me if "Ramses II, Hatshepsut, and King Tut," were black or even blue, but they were not. They could not be black just because you said so. You provided no material or scientific evidence whatsoever in your reply to make your case. I tell you again, that matter, to EGYPTIANS, has always been irrelevant.
You state that "if" I am Egyptian, then I "know that the original Egyptians were black people." That cannot be farther from the truth. You are robbing me of my identity, my ethnicity, and my nationality and you speak of that which you know nothing about. I AM Egyptian and I am NOT black, and nor were my ancestors, and I do NOT "know that the original Egyptians were black people," because they were not. "Arab" (or otherwise foreign) blood in me, if any, would be minimal. I have been around the ancient Egyptians' temples and museums in Egypt, and have seen no evidence to your (in my view, worthless and racist) theory. Copts, the purest form of Egyptians, are not/have never been black either and they have not intermarried with the Arabs, just to further refute your claim. You CANNOT tell Copts and Muslims apart in Egypt based on looks or skin color. The vast majority are just plain olive skinned as they have always been.
To make a statement such as "All Africans were black people before the miscegenation ..." is such an unscientific, blanket generalization that makes one doubt your very credentials. The question to you is: why is it so important for you to fight this battle?
Peace to you too, fellow African...

I'm afraid I'm right.

The letter is very racist and tells me everything about you. The ancient Egyptians were related to the Sudanese. They claimed they came orignally from there which they considered the orignal paradise. You are a sad little white boy who wants to look down on Blacks to make yourself feel good. You probably have accomplished nothing with your life. I bet many people must laugh at you.

Uh Kiddo, I never said there weren't blacks in AE. Read my post again.
I also stated that they were not white european, I think you should read the original post again.
If you look at Egypt today, which there is a spectrum of skin tones, you will have your AE.
Oh and AE influences Nubia, not the other way around.
The 25th Dynasty of AE was Nubian. Thy conquered AE in that time period. Hence you do have some black elements to AE.
Next!!!
I understand that Egypt influence Nubia but that doesnt mean that blacks werent part of the original construction of the pyramids. There are blacks ALL over the continent why is it so hard to believe that some had a part in the building?
the people in the tombs were NOT the color of most of the arabs I saw around the area. Like you said I think there was a mix but I think that black africans played a major role in the contruction.

Many say it is southern Sudan. But Somalians may be related too. I know my people the Beja are descendant of Egyptians and Nubians. But we live all over East Africa now.

A thorough and objective study of ancient africa reveals the truth. lets start with the bible since most of you are familiar with it. The people of africa come from the line of Ham. Egypt was called Mizraim a descendant of Ham. They were all Blacks but possibly varied in skin tone.
The ancient egyptians most likely resembled the black people of southern egypt, ethiopia, and somalia. they were conquered by blacks from the south of egpyt, your present day subsaharan Black people. prior to this they had no government, no kingdom, in fact very little of nothing. however it is still a case of blacks conquering black. Egyptian history testifies to this. there were no whites in the area nor were there people who resemble the modern arab who himself is a mut, a combination of african, afro-asiatic, greek and other european elements. Like it or not its fact. Egypt was a black land eventually over run by foreigners.
