Yes, they were black. Sculpture I've seen of Amenhotep appear definitely black.Go look at NARMER statue now go find a European or Arab or North African that look like that. Ill wait!
Like I said if you look at my Y dna it might say im European too but I look Negro and have nappy hair. my appearance drew my closer to blacks and they Y dna might lead to white from slave trade so that Dna says what again.
Go find Amenhutep pic you see him dark skin with a afro. Name one EUROPEAN,ARAB OR NORTH AFRICAN OR COPTIC that look like that now.
And if you can then you only proving that they had black African origins.7584
There are plenty of black people still in Egypt. It is a misconception that Egyptians now all look Mideastern. They do not. Many of them are still black.
