I agree that the ancient Egyptians (Mizrayim/Khemet) were "Black." Science is even proving this; DiscoveryChannel.com's King Tut, and Nefertiti are examples of this (reconstructed images.) The original people of the earth had medium brown to Black skin. Most of the people on the earth today also have medium brown to black skin color. However, many lost this pigmentation through mixing with whites, (when you look at very old photos and paintings/drawings, you see this.) DiscoveryChannel.com has the DNA reconsted image of the real Eve.
It is Biblical knowledge that Hamites are Black skinned people. However many seem to forget that Mizrayim (Egypt) was a son of Ham, as well as Cush (Ethiopia), Canaan, etc. The Canaanites lived in Ancient Palastine and some of the surrounding area (so Hamites were well into Middle Eastern regions.) The ancient Shemites were/are also "black" people. Moses and Joseph were mistaken for Egyptians.
Anyway, I have included a site that includes many must read links (in blue.)
I hope you find them inciteful.
