How come I see all these threads dedicated to keeping ancient Egypt "black" and you trying to prove you descended from our ancestors? Even the way you try to prove it is even more absurd. You descended from bantu's who don't know how to use anything and are generally not aware of their surroundings, that's why they live in mud huts and can't understand how something as simple as the wheel works. Our ancestors had beautiful red hair, olive skin and thinner features which is all been confirmed by world renown historians. There hasn't even been one report of bantu and ancient egypt interactions. So wtf are any of you talking about?

Can you please keep Ancient Egypt off your tongues? Why not celebrate your own cultures and how white women are supposedly obsessed with you? We don't look nothing like you so how the hell has that changed thousands of years ago? I don't get why there are so many threads in here when it's the "African American" forum. Why can't you be happy without trying to claim ancient egypt and my descendants? Ancient Egypt only belongs to Egyptians.

In America they teach that crap to black kids in inner city alternative schools. It's suppose to give them self-esteem so they will stop raping and murdering so much. The Obama's are big on that and want to expand it.

Ancient Egyptians weren't ghetto nor did they wear things 3 times their size, stop claiming ancestry that doesn't belong to you.

I don't blame them but they should accept the realities; not everyone descends from royalty or great civilizations.

Obviously you are not aware of the history of "Egypt" originally known as Kemet and its original inhabitants. Before you come on here attacking black people about the history of Egypt, maybe you should read about it first. There has been melanin tests done on ancient Kemetan mummies which show that before the invasion of the persians, arabs, etc, the original people were black. These were the same people who built the Pyramids and the first civilized society.

P.S. Don't believe the hype about black people. You watch too much tv. It's not only black people that "act ghetto" and wear clothes that are too small. Those are just negative images that the media shows to cause other people to hate us. MOST of us aren't even like that. There are mmmm, let's say, "unique" people in EVERY race.

The liberal media bends over backwards to protect your congoloid sensibilities. They under report, down play, and omit photos, because the liberals don't want to harm your self-esteem. You might get upset and go out raping and murdering.

It doesn't matter. The Ancient Egyptians weren't black Americans, so why do I see so many threads in a black American forum dedicated to us when we have absolutely nothing to do with you people?

Quite the contrary.The media over reports and shows negative images in order to damage our self-esteem. For this reason, I do not pay attention to the media. Instead I READ but that's beside the point. You still have not refuted the FACTS that I previously stated. I bet attacking my people made you feel really good about yourself but that shows me just how ignorant you are. Instead of giving me an educated rebuttal to what I have stated, you insult the black race. Kudos to you for representing your race accurately as a bunch of ignorant people obsessed with the black race. Why else would you be on the AFRICAN AMERICAN forum anyway?

If I'm not mistaken, AFRICAN-Americans are descendants of AFRICAN people. Kemet/Egypt is in AFRICA and it's original inhabitants were black AFRICAN people. Do you see the relation there or should I break it down in simpler terms for you to understand?

They cover up as much as they can. But they have to report some of it. It just so happens that 99% of news concerning blacks are about murder and mayhem. As much as your species would love it, the media can't cover up everything.

It doesn't matter, you are not African, you are black American. See what I did there? This is how most of you feel about Africa either way: http://www.topix.com/forum/afam/TFQJ06TJN3L3J...

Another AA explicitly telling Africans to get off the "black American" forum: http://www.topix.com/forum/afam/TFQJ06TJN3L3J...

So if you don't want Africans on your forums then why talk about my history and claim it as YOURS? Why not talk about civil rights and all that hoopla?

They don't cover up anything. In fact, reporters look for the most stereotypical black person they can find to interview to reinforce the stereotype that person portrays. The people who don't fit the stereotype are overlooked or, at most times, are not even shown when the news is broadcasted. Minorities are the targeted people, therefore more negative news concerning them will be shown. The media does not show these same images of crime concerning white people as often as they do black people. Lord forbid that it results in whites looking "violent". Also, crime (in general) is shown because of a little thing called ratings. That's what the people like to see.
Side Note: News flash Bob, we are in the same species.

I am an African American and this is the AFRICAN AMERICAN forum. I may not be a first generation American citizen from the continent of Africa but my roots are there. I like how you tried get back at me with your sarcasm. ha ha ha you humor me. How about you think of something better to say and then try it again. But before you do, let me tell you about the many things wrong with your comment.
Number One - I've already explained to you how I am in fact of African descent.
Number Two - You used the collective word "most" when referring to African Americans' perceptions about Africans. My question is, have you asked MOST African Americans how they feel about Africans? I'm pretty sure you haven't. Personally, I don't have a problem with Africans. It's just those who direct their hatred toward African Americans in hopes of assimilating into white culture. News flash for them is that they are black too and viewed just like the rest of us over here. They are just a little easier for the whites to manipulate because they think they're "one of them" anyway. Don't base your opinions on what a select FEW said. Do your own research.
Number Three -(regarding "us" claiming "your" history) Being that we are AFRICAN Americans, Africa's history IS our history.
Number Four - I don't know what your race is but if you are a black African that comes to America (since I see you're in Canada), the civil rights movement benefits you too. If it weren't for it, then all black people, regardless of where they're from, would still be drinking out of "colored" water fountains, entering white restaurants through the back door, riding in the back of the bus, etc.

I'm done with the ignorance tonight. If you have anything else to say, I'll deal with it tomorrow. That should give you some time to come up with a better rebuttal. Nite Pumkin. lol

And yet, it has been proven that Bantus and West Africans had kingdoms and empires... guess that shows how much you know about them.

Anyway, as a descendant of enslaved West Africans, I just want to tell you, rest assured, I really don't care about your ancient civilizations. Egypt and Greece are in the same category for me. They are HAS BEENS. They had their moment of greatness thousands of years ago but today, they aren't anything special. Even in their momemts of greatness, they were not flawless societies. Ancient Egypt has made it's contribution to society and we thank your Egyptians ancestors for it. Egypt of today ain't doing much though.

The Nubians were Black. You are not the TRUE egyptians. You are Beduoins that decended from the Middle East. You are NOT the indigenous peoples from Egypt.

Thank you. The people of Egypt now are decendants of Middle eastern peoples. Not Ancient Egyptians. The peoples of the middle east and persians invaded the country and destroyed the indigenous peoples of Egypt.
