It seems that the person or persons who would want to make of ancient Egypt a "black" civilization are
not familiar with actual data, but must have only read revisionist 20th century reports on what Egypt was all about.
Early records already show Egypt as developing independently of regions people by black skinned people in the south. Egyptian rulers later sent their armies to control some of those areas, install forts, and conduct trade with those people of the south, all the way to the land of Punt (Somalia of today.) Egyptian records clearly reflect the colonization aspect of this conquest, and the Nubian submission to their rule.
Much later in Egyptian history, some of the people from those black-skinned colonized regions, local functionaries, achieved important positions in the Egyptian administration and army, and even acceded through intermarriage to royal Egyptian families - after centuries elapsed ....
However, the Egyptians themselves always have clearly depicted the difference between themselves , the Nubians to the south (dark skinned, ) the Libyans to the West, and the populations of the East of the Nile.... They gave them distinct looks, attributes, and apparel. There is no confusion possible when one LOOKS at the actual HIEROGLYPHS.
No amount of revisionist history is going to change the clear record left by centuries of Egyptian history.
To imply that the Egyptian civilization as we know it was founded by the people of sub-Saharan countries, or that these people are the direct heirs to the Egyptian civilization is false, because it is not supported by any factual data provided by archeology and Egyptian records. To know that Nubians and other dark-skinned people began to be incorporated in the Egyptian society over time, and that there were intermarriages, is to remain true to the actual record of history.
