What is the origin of the word "Kemet" according to African scholarship?
guess your question wasn't that simple since you have been waiting on an answer for some time now:spin:
The question is simple but voices are silent because they have argued that the Hebrew were NOT Black people yet consider the source for yourself.
The FACT is this term is largely an afrocentric fabrication based on the argument that it means land of the Black but the FACT remains the people of Egypt in antiquity referred to their country as Misr. As they do today.
Misr is the short form of the Biblical Mizraim.
Reccognizing the Biblical source for the word "kemet" would result in acknowledging that the Hebrews were indeed "Black people" whcih then negates the validity of the arguments posited by metu neter proponents who argue the Hebrews were "foreigners".
If the Hebrews were "foreigners" then "kemet" was a term used by hebrews to describe what was to them a "foreign land". But they did not view themselves as being separate and distinct. At least not racially.
I don't have an argument since I don't disagree with your assertion
Excuse me brother, I dont intend on being argumentative. I was just elaborating on an observation.
Perhaps you are correct. It may actually be a more complex question that I thought.
thanks for your response!
LOL well I wasn't accusing you of being argumentative .
I should say I have no opposing view to state since I agree with or at the very least am not in disagreement or am not opposed with or to the stateted observation.
Also I am not too well aquintted with the subject so hoped by posting it would encourage others to post who were more learned on the subject.
And to save you from having to keep posting to your self just to keep the question active LOL
I hear you brother. i was more or less apologizing for coming across the wrong way. I guess I do need to give these threads another break for a while.
Thanks again for your response.
its okay just see no reason for you to apoligize your question seemed fair enough and reasonably stated.
I am all good with it.
thanks for the piece you linked to used it on another site.
