How would you explain or account for the presence of blond haired white people in what is now Lybia? These were known as Lybians to the Egyptians and often dressed in Ostrech feathers in battle.
Once again, I stand by my former statement, that white, brown and black people cohabited the Saharan region of Africa, just as white and Mongoloid people exchanged gene pools in the northern forests of Europe where Finno-Ugric people dwell. This may go back to time immemorial.
I have no doubt however that black people may have been the original population of North Africa, but were perhaps relegated to a second class status by people of Afro-Asiatic blood who came as conquerors in very remote times, such as what happened in India.
Then again maybe they all fused together from a very early date? The original black presence in north Africa is certainly a reality since, as I mentioned before, some of the oldest Homo Sapiens people in southern Europe were black (Combe Capelle, Laugerie Basse, Grimaldi). THis European colonization could only have been achieved if black Africans had already populated North Africa.
What is certain is that Mediterranean people as well as White people were present thousands of years ago in Africa (although some people claim the contrary), prior to any Arab or even European colonization. This can be proved by looking at th epaintings as well as statues and busts of Egyptians who had typical Caucasian and Mediterranean features.
