Queen of Saba was originally from Ethiopia and Somalia present, it certainly was black (certainly has clear skin) but not negroide in the Song of Songs written for the Solomon described it as described and it was nothing n negroide of it was the most women Jamis seen israel but she had the complexion basanne.et it is very likely that it is the ancient Greeks called cassiopee (in Greek mythology Ethiopian queen whose beauty surpassed that of goddesses). so stop your racism, you have to admit that it is ethiopia who wins here not the Arabs.

Sheba has nothing to do with African Americans since their history revolves around the Congo basin of west and central Africa. Ethiopians are their own people and were part of the ancient Nile valley civilizations along with ancient Yemenis and Egyptians who are related to Ethiopians long before nomadic Bedouin Arabs and queen Sheba was then the ruler of the Sabaeans who traded with kingdoms in Ethiopia like D'mt and Meroe and eventually migrated there along with Sheba to make Ethiopia their home and after a cultural exchange between the Sabaeans and Cushites of Ethiopia, they created Axum and maintained the legend of Sheba known to them as Makeda and credit her for giving birth to the first emperor of Axum king Menelik after she had fornicated with king David of Israel. The Axumites traded with Rome, Persia, India, and as far as china and had become devout orthodox Christians by the 3rd century AD. They are purely Ethiopian therefore African but the unfortunate fact is the massive transatlantic slave trade of West Africa is one which dominates and shapes the identity of Africa as a whole in the eyes of many westerners. I believe this might be because they themselves can't look back too far at their ancient history without finding themselves under the oppression and slavery of Rome.

I really have to say king tut white and others, You would have been put to death if you turned up white mate. It is Ironic that one of the test of Moses was when God said put your hand in your blossom which he did and when he withdrew it it came out it was leperous has white has snow, It is also evident in your own bible that God did that again to miriam and the fact that the bible ref Egypt has the Land of Ham. Your own history show that Ham was black and that included Egypt has part of that House along with Kush...Even if you check syria and the original arabs that they are black. Remember please that the present Arabs are Asian when they came down invading the area. The Greeks and Romans like many nations of the Ancient World agree that the first people on Earth and greatly contributed to what you have today were Ethiopians which simply mean the blacks. There is so much data that it impossible to deny the facts. Even Slavery was first invented by blacks.It is interesting to learn when the European first came into the historic framework they were referred to has savages, barbarians without worth. The main origin was Germanic. It is easy to write abusive notions but that is your fear to truth...It is interesting that even persia/Iran there is great evidence of black civilisations present. Even when you look at the Jews of the present, I will always want to know why the refer to themselves has Ashkenazi when that is related to gog and magog and can be found behinf the wall that Alexander the great built. In the end the Queen of Sheba has been referred to has a negro and of the people of Ham by the Egyptain princess to Solomon and he in response said but you are also kin to her being also of Ham...But you want only to hear how you came first and built everything but that is not true and when you can accept certain factors you will sleep better and allow others to develop in recognition of self...and be valued for what they are instead of being seen has a burden. The Blacks of America had started your advancement today and it is highly unlikely that America would have reached it great state had it not been for their blood sweat and tears. You need to grow up and learn and give thanks for what you have... For you are a slave to your own destiny...

I am black and beautiful, O daughters of Jerusalem, like the tents of Kedar, like the curtains ... 6 Do not gaze at me because I am dark, because the sun has gazed on me.... Look, O daughters of Zion, at King Solomon, at the crown with which his mother ... Your hair is like a flock of goats, moving down the slopes of Gilead

Every culture has its own body of folklore, myths, legends, song, poetry, stories, and parables. They reveal the identity of the culture and the common notions of morality and tradition among the people of that culture. It would take a whole encyclopedia of folklore just to present examples from themany cultures of Ethiopia. One myth, the Abyssinian story of Solomon and Sheba, provides an example of the function of myth and folklore in a culture.
Meqede was Queen of the land of Sheba (in Amharic she is also known as Saba). She knew of King Solomon's great wisdom and wished to visit him in the land of Israel. So she summoned a trader who traveled far and wide and knew the paths to Israel. She gave him delicate perfumes and scents from tree barks and flowers and sent him to offer these to King Solomon. He accepted them with curiosity, wondering about this queen from the land of Ethiopia. The trader returned with the good news that King Solomon wanted to meet her. She gathered her handmaidens, cooks, body guards, and slaves and set off to the land of Israel. She traveled by boat up the Nile and by camel across the great deserts.
King Solomon personally greeted Saba at his gate. He invited Saba and her people to a great feast. Then the King invited Saba to sleep with him. The Queen refused politely but firmly. That night, King Solomon took Saba's maidservant to bed with him. The next evening King Solomon and Saba dined together. The King had told his cooks to make the food very spicy and salty. Again that night, the King invited Saba to sleep with him. He promised not to touch her so long as she did not take anything belonging to the King—if she did, he could have her. Saba agreed to this and shared the bed of King Solomon. That night Saba awoke with agreat thirst and drank some water from the King's own cup. He caught her and reminded her of their agreement. They slept together and she became pregnant.
Saba, the Queen of Sheba, returned to her land and in time had a child, whom she named Menelik. As Menelik grew up, Saba taught him about his father, King Solomon. He drew a picture of his father to keep near him.
As a young man, Menelik traveled back to theland of Israel to meet and know his father. Menelik, who would follow his mother as ruler of Sheba in the land of Abyssinia, remembered the great Ark and the tablets that were handed down by God to Moses onMount Sinai. He had his people take the Ark of the Covenant from its place and brought itback to the land of Sheba without the knowledge or consent of the Israelites. Back in his native land, Menelik installed the Great Ark in the Church of St. Mary at Axum, sanctifying the land of Sheba and forming a foundation for the royal line of the Solomonic dynasty.
This myth exists to this day. It is a very important myth because it gives the Abyssinian peoples a sense of historical identity. It also justified the emperor's right to rule by linking the Abyssinian people with God, Moses, and the holy Ark of the Covenant. The important link was Menelik, son of King Solomon, who was of the royal line of kings blessed by God. The myth also isrich with the flavor of Abyssinian culture: thesending of pleasing gifts to beg an invitation, Solomon's craftiness, and Menelik's transferring the power of the Ark to his own land.
Do not call it myth. Show some respect.

I notice you used the word "fornicated". That seemed very deliberate and therefore I have to question your usage of such a misleading word. King Solomon was GOD's Holy Prophet. As such it is very unlikely that he would engage in illegal sexual activity. If indeed he had sex with Sheba, we can be 100% certain that he married her. Until you show evidence that he did not marry her, you are in violation to assume that GOD's Prophet broke GOD's Law. That makes no sense. But I suspect your motive is racism. You do not want to admit that Africans and Semites are legitimately one and the same people, culturally, linguistically, and religiously. Ethiopians speak Semitic languages. It is the home of the oldest churches on earth. Next door Somalia is the home of the oldest Muslim shrines in the world. Plus, there is Judaism. In fact, there is good reason to accept that the Ark of the Covenant is in Ethiopia and no other place but Ethiopia. What is certain is that all civilization originated in Africa.

Yemen shares a border with Somalia. Accordingly, throughout history Yemenis and Somalis have migrated back and forth across the frontier. They have intermingled and intermarried. I cannot see any biological differences between Yemeni Arabs and Somali Africans.
