To say "all greek's later inventions were based on Egypt thought" would make about as much sense as saying that all Victorian invention was based on German thought simply because the male Monarch of England at the time was German. It is important to remember that during this time there was a massive melting pot of culture. Egypt was not considered any more African than was Carthage. Both were part of the mediterranean world, which shared their cultures with one another through trade and labor. New research has shown that rather than being the slaves history has portrayed them as, free Hebrew laborers migrated from across the ancient world to build the great Egyptian pyramids- "White" laborers and architects bringing their techniques to construct some of the greatest monuments of Egypt. Cleopatra was descended from Greek heritage, and to our knowledge, the Ptolemic line remained relatively racially particular; which could have implications for the somewhat steadfast relations between Egypt and Rome. Just as Alexander the Great spread Greco mixed martial arts throughout the east before the appearance of recorded Martial arts history does not mean that martial arts didn't exist beforehand. This was an incredibly diverse world, which functioned as a whole far better than people understand. At this time there is no "crucible of culture," and whether or not life began in Africa is irrelevent. Different cultures were conceiving of their own identities and thought processes and sharing them. Egypt owes as much to the Greeks, Phonicians and Mesopotamians as they do Egypt. Why don't we all stop trying to come up with "which race is better or more original" and realize that we are arguing about something far too few of us understand, in a time none of us existed.

I definitely do not think cleopatra was pure black NOR pure white. Infact cleopatra's father was greek and his wife an african queen. NOW anyone with logic and common sense can clearly see that these two combinations cannot produce a white person - and you're telling me she was white arn't you.... well i know your ancestors lied to us africans about our history which is most lost but please did they lie to you too... infact the true egyptian queens and kings of kemet(egypt - black land) were all africans....yes, if anyone opposes this please feel free to tell me 1)why and who blew off the sphinx facial features - which depicted african features... and if it was indeed an black african, why would any other race worship it? 2)i recommend you go to egypt and take a look at the interior of pyramids and the museum- put your eyes on any pharoh's statue - what color is his skin - black of course - and oh yeah fella they blew off the nose and lips of some 2.. hey they truth is simple...the egyptians thought the greeks - which many of them confessed to IN RECORD. therefore all greeks later inventions and ideas were based on egypt thought!

Cleopatra was of Greek origin(her great great granfather was among the best soldiers of Alexander the Great.When Alexander conquered Egypt he left him as ruler of Egypt)

And Christos-if we accept his existance-was a Jew.

Just because you hate the Jews that doesn't mean you can change history Spathass!

Total BS and lies as usual. Cleopatra was not mixed, so no, she did not look like mixed types like alicia keys nor beyonce. She looked like the typical inbred white woman that she was.

Nope, you are wrong as usual. She was white, and came from a long line of white inbred European royals.

Jeff you are one tired bastard! Thotmose was correct Cleopatra came from a long line of priest's daughters of Egypt. The evidence supports it then and now...

That's been the job of the racist cracker... yo lie about his history and Africa! Cleopatra was under Greek control, heavily influenced by strong Africa culture. The finding of her arsinoe's burial remains proved that the DNA was undoubtedly African. Plus, the sculptural drawing of her skull proved also africoid origins! She and Cleopatra had the same mother... a daughter of an Egyptian priest... this shit about brother and sister is BS... not all Greek sibling lineals made it to the f@cling throne!
