I remember once going to rally where a former Black Panther leader spoke and he claimed that Karenga was a gubbermint agent.

I personally can't confirm this but it wouldn't surprise me given past experience with afronuts.

I've had some run ins with afrocentric types on and offline and each and every encounter reenforced my conviction that it is not just a mere "intellectual ghetto" but a cesspool and a magnet for the dregs and losers of society. The scum of the earth.

Slaves and dependents often turn out to be even worse than their massahs.

People who have never looked at ancient Egyptian art and heiroglyphs, apparently.

Once we finish debating the race of Tutankhamun perhaps we can discuss whether or not the world is flat.

How come Nefertiti doesn't look black?

This post reeks.

Egyptian art is known to be symbolic in nature as is all art. 'Black' is a sociological term as is 'white'. It has no baring on the skin colour, but tone of the skin and the historic implied origin of the barer.

Tutankhamun came from a culture that was rooted in the African continent, nowhere else could have borne it, and nowhere except in Africa are/were there similar cultures before and after. Genetic findings have shown that Tuankhamun was both 'Black' under the modern definition of the word and 'African', due to the culture he was in as have other famous Ancient Egyptians shown to be. In fact, there isn't a current DNA determination of an alternative origin that I am aware of.

I should state this subject has been pretty much closed as far as the experts are concerned. Culture trolling through appropriation isn't cool.

Why is it always non-African people trying to steal our culture and history and claim it as theirs? Jealous much?

A lot of people have roots in Africa that aren't black. Perhaps some like to think that their ancestors looked like them, who knows. Anyway there very well must have been some people living in ancient Egypt that looked black but that doesn't necessarily indicate that most ancient Egyptians were black. The Visigoths ruled in the Iberian peninsula for several centuries but we all know they were invaders that pretty much just plugged into what the Romans had started. More information is needed. But the autosomal DNA of modern day Egyptians has been studied and the sub-Saharan component is less than the European, Near Eastern, and Maghrebi. It is also clear that the sub-Saharan received quite a boost from the Arabian slave trade most indicating that most of the sub-Saharan is recent.

Now you see how ridiculous your statements sound when it's turned against you.

Well I was stating that it could be a plausible reason I really can't say what people's reasons are for wanting the ancient Egyptians to have looked either black, white, or mixed. There is evidence to support tha Europeans before the neothic expansion were brown skinned, light skin spread from the northern fertile crescent. I think that the question regading the color of the ancient Egyptians will only be solved when there is sufficient DNA collected from ancient remains. Y-dna(paternal line) is difficult to collect from ancient DNA samples.
