People you can argue anything you want but Africans influenced the middle east and that is a fact, I even covered that in school, but obviously some
like supremacy groups are disgusted to even think that "afrikans" even touch any body's blood backgrounds. After all Jesus could, never had
“Black Blood in him” right?
Reality Check it was a pure group of races and then it was blending of races during Egypt glorious days.
By the way in ancient times it was not border and they do not have established nations as in modern day countries they form tribes to kingdoms.
From archeology digs and test done to mommies in our modern day is proved of how races evolved in the world including the middle east and it shows how
pure African races blended in cross breeding with other races to make what the middle east is today.
Even my husband when he was in the middle east said that Arabs have all kind of skin shade from light (no white) skin to dark (black skin) from
straight hair (never blond) to kinky (African type) hair.
Only a few in the post got facts right, and they got some good information.
The point to discuss is as why, Blacks were never given a more center stage in the middle east culture when in fact is (Proven facts) that the Egypt
in ancient history has dominance of been conquered by Nubious that were from African race, and dark skinned.
Read facts and not ideologies facts can be proven Ideologies not.
I am proud to have black AfriKan blood in my Spanish Heritage.
Seekerof pretty much got a beautiful picture of the races that make the middle east people including Egyptian. AgentGirl also got some very good
People read the facts.
Why is so hard to believe that Blacks were the first ones around and their influences touch all of us regardless of how your skin has changed since
The Egyptian Race According to the Classical Authors of Antiquity
1. To the Greek and Latin writers contemporary with the ancient Egyptians the latter's physical classification posed no problems: the Egyptians were
negroes, thick-lipped, kinky-haired and thin-legged; the unanimity of the author's evidence on a physical fact as salient as a people's race will be
difficult to minimize or pass over. Some of the following evidence drives home the point.
(a) Herodotus, 'the father of history', -480(?) to -425. With regard to the origins of the Colchians25 he writes:
it is in fact manifest that the Colchidians are Egyptian by race ... several Egyptians told me that in their opinion the Colchidians were descended
from soldiers of Sesostris. I had conjectured as much myself from two pointers, firstly because they have black skins and kinky hair (to tell the
truth this proves nothing for other peoples have them too) and secondly, and more reliably for the reason that alone among mankind the Egyptians and
the Ethiopians have practiced circumcision since time immemorial. The Phoenicians and Syrians of Palestine themselves admit that they learnt the
practice from the Egyptians while the Syrians in the river Thermodon and Pathenios region and their neighbors the Macrons say they learnt it recently
from the Colchidians. These are the only races which practice circumcision and it is observable that they do it in the same way as the Egyptians. As
between the Egyptians themselves and the Ethiopians I could not say which taught the other the practice for among them it is quite clearly a custom of
great antiquity. As to the custom having been learnt through their Egyptian connections, a further strong proof to my mind is that all those
Phoenicians trading to Greece cease to treat the pudenda after the Egyptian manner and do not subject their offspring to circumcision.26
Who you are going to believe the western book that favor that middle east is white or the real writters of the time the oens that live among the
ancient civilizations of the middle east.
Witness of the Bible
1. The Bible tells us. ' . . .the sons of Ham [were] Cush, and Mizraim [i.e. Egypt], and Phut, and Canaan. And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah,
and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtechah.56
Generally speaking all Semitic tradition (Jewish and Arab) classes ancient Egypt with the countries of the blacks.
The importance of these depositions cannot be ignored, for these are peoples (the Jews) which lived side by side with the ancient Egyptians and
sometimes in symbiosis with them and have nothing to gain by presenting a false ethnic picture of them. Nor is the notion of an erroneous
interpretation of the facts any more tenable.57
I am glad that the bible was not written by white supremacy groups, because we may have lost some information that talks about tribes and blood lines
to african roots.
