THIS IS NOT NEWS
I don’t know what people expect Egyptians to be. I guess watching The 10 Commandments on ABC growing up got folks thinking they all looked like bronzed white people.
BREAKING NEWS: BLACK PEOPLE ARE BLACK. THIS IS AN AMAZING DISCOVERY. BLACK PEOPLE EXISTED BEFORE WE DISCOVERED THEM AND ENSLAVED THEM AND FUCKED UP THEIR LAND. WOW.
Africans in Africa? Mind blown.
BLACK PEOPLE EXISTED BEFORE WHITE PEOPLE
Actually, Ancient Egyptians were multiracial The notion that the majority of Ancient Egyptians were black is widely dismissed by historians. You know why? Because Ancient Egypt was a cultural melting pot, made up of all sorts of races north and south of the Sahara. So there were black people in ancient egypt. You can bet there were Black Pharaohs as well, King Tut most likely being the most famous example. There were also a hell of a lot of arabs there too, who were most likely the majority. There were even people of asian descent as well. Some even argue that certain pharoahs must have been of asian descent. There was a very strong European influence in the region, Egypt being a very big trade center. In fact, the last dynasty to rule Egypt was the Ptolemaic dynasty, who’s last Pharoah was Cleopatra. They were a very powerful Greek family who ruled Egypt for almost 300 years. So yes, there were in fact bronzed white people ruling Egypt for a time. It’s not as simple as “oh we found one mummy of black descent, therefore they all must have been black.” Egypt was home to many people of many races, and had Pharoahs of all different ethnic backgrounds. Deal with it.
what if the existence of people was literally based on the fact that we thought about them
like our perception of them made them into real beings
because if you think about it, if everyone in the world forgot about the exact same person
that person would cease to exist
so deep tho
I read this, thought about it, then I just sat on the floor and cried.
