''The portrayal of Egpyt as white is natual since the founding egpytologists were very white themselves. It isn't at all correct, however. Please do a little research before jumping to conclusions.''
The whitness on the Papyrus of Ani is strictly symbolic. Ancient Egyptians often used color as symbolism. While I donot debate that much of the tomb paintings of Sennefer,Snejemb,and others from around Luxor reflects the color of the population there. You can go to Luxor today and see dark skinned people like in antiquity. I am personally from Egypt,and I can vouch for this that sa3eadi[Upper Egyptians] are the purest Egyptians in terms of ethncity. People in the cities like Cairo,Alexzandria,and even the Delta are heavily mixed with other people.
''Start at http://www.homestead.com/wysinger/ancientafrica.html If your opinion doesn't change then you may be going about the issue in an unscientific way. History is hard to change. Though, it was done once --or so Herodotus would say''
The problem is that early racist Egyptologist like James Henery Breasted,Gaston Maspero,and others have dictated the Egyptology community and clouded the entire scence. Change is on the horizon,but it might take a while,because there is so much garbage out there.
''It's very clear that Egyptians, of both ancient and modern times, were/are of the Hamitic ethnicity - that is black. Further evidence of a black egypt - and I am NOT referring to the 25th dynasty of Nubian rule - is that Professor Fabrizio Mori discovered a mummy at Uan Muhuggiag
which is older than any Egpytian mummy - it was a black boy. There are volumes of information supporting a black Egpyt. You may try looking at pictures of black people and then comparing them with Egpytian paintings and sculptures, many of which have been held out of public light until recently. ''
People have known about the mummy in the Fezzan for quite a while. Many modern Egyptologist like Toby Wilkinson know believe that early Egyptians were pastorials and directly connected to the Sahara region,which was once more fertile and lush than it is today. We also have a archeological site in Southern Egypt called Nabta Playa that goes back about 10,000 years with cattle rituals that is very similar to that of the Ancient Egyptians during the Old Kingdom.
''Really with slavery just ended and Jim Crowe still very much alive, do you think Egyptologists are going to jump up and say 'Well guys there is little dout that Egyptians were black''
Professor Frank Yurco has spoken on many occasions that the Upper Egyptians were indeed black. Professor Bruce Willams at the Oriental Insitute in Chicago has even admitted that no Ancient Egyptians would have sit at the front of the bus,nor eaten at any lunch counter in the South. I doubt that many rual Modern Egyptians would have been able to either.
''Perhaps I'll redirect my life towards Egyptology. Do visit the web site, though. I'm sure, being a person of intelligence (presumably), you will bow to common sense. And Todd there are painted scuplture which are proven hoaxes, that is the Truth. ''
Lady Tetisheri has been proven countless of times to have been a fake. The supposed fake sat in the British museum for many years without going unchecked. I suspect that some of the modern Egyptian artifacts are fakes,but I will wait for further proof.
''I have always loved the study of ancient Eygpt, but I didn't always belive that the Egayptians were as black as any other Africans. I was literally forced by intellectual honesty to come around, perhaps you will, as well. ''
Nice to see you have come around. Sometimes this issue is hard for Americans,because of their view of race and Africa. I would sugest that Egypt is definatley not the only place in Africa that had civlization. Archeology in other regions like Western Africa,Eastern Africa,and other regions must be explored to. Egypt,I agree,is an African civlization,and most defiantley most of it;'s inhabitants were black,but let's not forget other parts of Africa.
