    This is one of the problems we run into when we use a white/Western racial classification system.

    Black is a race, and black is also a color too.

    Zulus are of the Black race just like the Dinka of southern Sudan, but the Zulus are brown in color while the Dinka are nearly black.

    The ancient Egyptians were of the Black race although they weren't actually black in complexion.

    When I said "we" use the white/Western racial classification system I was talking about us (you and I) in particular but Americans in general.

    But in actual color, I don't believe the Egyptians were black but dark brown with less kinky hair.

    yes the original settlers were black people. pre dynastic egypt, and some dynasties weere ruled by blacks. what went on in egypt was racial. arabs , and other white peoples invaded creating a system of hatred towards black people. is hallie berry, lenny kravitz, or tiger woods black? depends on the individual and their feelings. but they all have afrikan genes.

    most of the old statues have their noses blasted off for on reason. because they were black noses (not meaning color). The trick of wht supremecy has been to religate "egypt" to only dynastic egypt. Besides the word egytpt is a white word any how.

    peace

    yes i believe they are white. in arab cultures you have almost european features down to african features. most of them imo are white/caucasian with Afrikan or asian mixed genes.

    Hmmm.....

    That can be said about Adam Clayton Powell, Michael Jackson, Thurgood Marshall, WEB Dubois, Malcolm X and other AfroAmericans with significant white ancestry also.

    You have to understand the history of the Arab people are realize who is and who isn't an Arab.

    Most of the people calling themselves Arab today aren't really Arab.


    Do you believe that Hebrews were/are white?
