That's it, i am making a thread to debunk and destroy every single claim of these history thieves pathetic self hating leeches. Egyptians were not black, or europeans or anything but egyptians, a fucking thread.
First claim; "Egyptians must have been black because otherwise how would they survive the sun!!!" Every single living egyptian is your proof that not only can we survive the sun, but we are the best at it, least ratio of Melanoma globally 😁
Despite the very tough work environment for the majority of us, also for the record, sun protection cream was invited by...... the ancient egyptians !
Anyway, the average temperatures in Egypt, and North Africa generally, is much less than it is in the arabian peninsula, so the arabs that you claim we come from, have had much tougher than us.
Second claim: Kemet (the name ancient egyptians called Egypt) means the black's land. It doesn't not, whoever told you that was dishonest to you, and you are a fool for believing him, Kemet means the Black land, as to refer to egypt's black, fertile soil, that
Tho, which country names tho was influenced by the dark skin colour of its inhabitants ? Sudan and Habisha, in arabic, are two names that are very clearly influenced by the skin colour of the people the arabs dealt with.
The great greek philospher, Herodotus, used the word Aethiope to refer to the inhabitants of both the lands beneath Egypt and Libya (used to refer to all Maghreb North africans) as well as southern indians, as the word literally meant "burnt skin" as in to refer to the
Darker skin tones both southern indians and sub saharan africans used to have in comparison to northern indians and north africans Similar comparison was made by the Greek Geographer, Strabo. A northern and southern indian for comparison.
Herodotus description of Egyptians had two keywords that make it beyond doubt that Egyptians were not black, as he likened them to the colchians,people who inhabited present day western Georgia,as they both had "Swarthy" skin colour, he believed them to be of egyptian descendant.
The word swarthy is very often, intentionally altered to Dark skin by afrocentrists, tho, this is clearly not true, as the word meant different variations of brown/olive/Wheat like skin complexion that is "in the eyes of the beholder"
The odes of Pindar, The greek Poem, describing the Cholchians of western Georgia using the same word "swarthy" If you want to prove the egyptians were black, you have to prove Georgians who inhabit the middle of Euroasia are black.
The greek philospher Plutarch describing a syrian mercenary as "swarthy" and "curly haired", a carbon copy description to that of egyptians. If you want to prove egyptians were black, you have to prove syrians are black.
The greek historian Diagones description of the people of Cyprus. If you want to prove egyptians were black, you have to prove the people of cyprus were too.

This is how the surrounding middle eastern and Mediterranean people viewed the egyptians, but how did the egyptians view themselves ? Let's see.
When it comes to how egyptians portrayed themselves, there is always two main points of argument; first, the broken noses of some of the status which they believe was intentionally done to hide the wide black nose feature Ancient greek statues, where they black ?
Ancient greek statues, where they black ? The answer is clearly, undisputedly, NO. One reason as to why noses fall off, is because they are protruding outside the face which makes it very vulnerable to damage, tho it was occasionally done on purpose as a form of humiliation
Funnily enough, the proverb "i will break your nose" "هكسر مناخيرك", is very often used as a threat of humiliation to the person addressed with it. Acts of vandalism occasionally happened for religious reasons, but majorly, erosion and natural reasons took place
Here are egyptian statues and sculptures with the nose intact
Neither the phenotype, not the colour depicted, are that of black africans.
These are a few examples of statues that have their nose intact still
The 2nd thing that afrocentrists argue for, is that Egyptians used a reddish brown colour (which they argue is a "shade of black" LOL) The majority of egyptians have variations of that skin tone, me included, but this is not what i am going to address anyway
What i am here to address is the symbolism of colours in ancient art, and egypt specifically.
The tanned colour in ancient egypt, and to this day, was a symbol for strength, hardwork and exposure to the sun That's why men exclusively were depicted by darker tones, as opposed to women, whose lighter tones were a symbol for welfare and not having to be exposed to the sun.
First pic is how egyptians portrayed a syrian man, essentially giving him the same colour as they used for themselves. The 2nd is of Minoans who inhabited the island of Crete, in greece, same colours. Were syrians are greeks black too, while their women were light skinned ? 😕
Let's see how egyptians depicted their actual, black, neighbouring enemies, in comparison.
As a form of humiliation, the king depicted his libyan, asian, and nubian enemies on his staff, his leg rest, and his slippers, so everytime he steps a foot, it is as if he is stepping on his enemies.

Moving on, to a more embarrassing claim, that one wouldn't expect from a 3 years old child, that is, why are the mummies black ? It is embarrassing that i have to answer this for you, but here you go.
"If you are egyptian why do you speak arabic" A nigerian, asking me this, in ENGLISH ????????????????????????? Goodness gracious, you can't possibly be that dumb can you !
