Why don't we just leave it at we don't know what race the Ancient Egyptians were as they were many possibilities
1 The common people and royalty were not the same race or ethnic group this happens a lot look at where Egypt is then look at the royal families of
many countries in history.
2 The country was mixed like today with the North being most likely Berber and the South being Black
3 The Ancient Egyptians were neither Black, Arab or White
4 They were a mix of several different groups similar to other places ( India, most of the America's, Arabia)
When looking at the people around Egypt you see many different colours Egyptians, Ethiopians, Yemenites, Omani's, Sudanese, Greeks, Libyans, Turkish,
Persians, etc are all different colours and they all knew about each other it is possible that some of these people mixed.
Look today at places such as India, Brazil, Madagascar, Puerto Rico or Guyana those places have people with 4 or 5 races mixed together
BTW Egyptians dont look like Arabs you notice a difference between them and people from Central Arabia; the Arabs in Egypt are mixed with something
whether they admit it or not.
One issue that everyone is seeming to forget is that Dark skin does not equal Black as Light skin does not equal white case in point the Australian
Aborigines, people of New Guinea, Dravidian's of India and the Ainu of Japan if you had them line and were told to pick the place they were from
Africa would be selected for all except the Ainu who would be picked as being from Europe.
