Come from one of those groups
Yea the bible even tells you, so what's the point? you may say your cush, mizraim, but your still brothers, but if your african your still from Ham, Hamitic isn't that what were called?, were not all going to exactly look alike, do you exactly look like your own immediate brothers? how about your father? i even hear that your enviroment can play a role in having what you look like, but fact still remains is that were related,.. africans trying to divide themsevles from not being related to other africans is pointless.. the european used the divide and conquer tacticts to conquer people (divide and conquer, i know you heard of it before), it was used against the indians too, tribes fighting other tribes, im not saying that people shouldn't love your culture but don't go around pretending that your not related to other africans

I have never seen such stupidity on a forum then that of this. First, the Ancient Egyptians were African. When they wrote they made it extremely clear that they came from what is commonly called Sub-Sahara Africa (racist term). Secondly, they made a different between themselves and other black African as in words such as Nehusi, Tehenne, etc ... This was not an attempt to call themselves white because they by no means were European nor Arab. This was to separate themselves from other Africans.

The comment which one though they were funny suggest that the ancient Egyptian turned black has got to be the most eurocentric white washed non-educated dumbie in this thread. They were black and because SOME of them have what europeans like to suggest white features ... have to understand that white features come from black Africans which a school child has no problem understanding that Africa have ever type of bone structure on this planet and that includes those that are called predominately white. Those who proclaim to be educated in genetics need to some help. I will disprove your genetic research with genetics as a geneticist by trade.

Bantu is a language a holy language but it also represents a people which is identified as the God people just like the word Dalit. Ba egyptian word for Soul and Ntu egyptian for 'gods/natures'. The soul of gods as the word 'Bantu' mean in Ta Kemet by the Kememu people.

Eurocentric dumbies ... I hate racist idiots

Being Egyptian does not equate to knowledge. West Africa has knowledge that super-exceed anything that can be found in East Africa but this things will remain hidden especially by Europeans who have to find a way first to attribute African knowledge to their people without looking silly.

People start researching West Africa ... I can give you some material but you have to research it .. you will find that West Africa as many are starting to find may be where the first humans as we know it came from. South West Chad has now been founded to have the oldest human bones dating 7million years. The out dates 2.3million that was once held as fact.

There are man made passages in West Africa that are far greater then any pyramid. Some believe that the Kememu/Egyptian migrated South from which they came when the Arabs took Egypt by force and death. Many know that they migrated South and through the Trans Sahara Slave trade ended up in North West Africa which caused them to migrate to West and Central West Africa. From this point you know the stories as to how many of them made it to different areas of the world just to be used for their knowledge of technologies, etc ...

I am interested in your understanding of the different groups that were present in the Ancient cultural mix of Africa. Bantu and what else fits into the investigation?

initially, bantu (people) were the ancient egytians, one very advanced bantu (people) built ancient egyptian civilisation. the mother of Arabs was a bantu princess of irresistable beauty and wisdom. The primitive, backward and poverty stricken desert Arabs invaded and murdered all the bantu in the land and robbed them everything they had. a few who managed to escape into the sahara and into the congo and west afrika to start a new life from nothing. the blood thirsty Arabs still followed them there to murder and enslave them. at least the jews have reclaimed their land which too was snatched from their fore-fathers by Arab devils. next the bantu of Nubia will reclaim egypt. <[email protected]>

The Bantus do have many religions, they may not be Christian or Muslim, but they have religion (culture).

Bantu is a wide variety of people, and there are many variations of Bantu languages all around Sub-Sahara Africa.

What language is the word bantu? Thanks for the links, they helped a lot. I didn't know that i'm a bantu until now, but i refuse to accept the name bantu. It sounds disrepectfull, i prefer tswana and not bantu. It seems bantu is just a word that a white person came up with, why should i accept it?

You can identify with whatever you want to.(I'm white) but I identify with my ancestral ethnic group (Germanic/Teutonic or German) but, most importantly, I identfy with my beliefs. A person from Africa and a person from Europe who identify with my beliefs is my people.

One of the worst things anyone can do though, is to identify with a color (hence the terms White/Black) instead of cultural aspects and religious beliefs.

If you prefer Tswana then indentify with Tswana. After all, it's how you define yourself that really matters.

Many indigenous people from southern africa, central africa, cameroon, some parts in east africa apart from the khoisan in southern africa speak language which belongs to the bantu language...i don't know in your language but many bantu languages,people means 'aNTU' or baNTU,in my language a person is a muNTU and people are aNTU...there are also some other similarities between bantus,but in the end bantu just means people....
