Regarding Ancient Egyptians, well, they were melanated as well so that's why. (this is my stance anyway).
Sorry 8os kid. There are no credible sources that make this claim. There were no Africans in the new world before European arrival....At all.

You probably misunderstood what I said but there were people here before self proclaimed white people stepped foot on this part of the world. There's a ton of credible information out there. It just clashes with what we were brought up to believe. I mean, America lies about minimal things like American cheese being real cheese, so why wouldn't we be misinformed about weightier things like this?

To get back on topic, they melanated folks claim include original Kemet because they'd have to list themselves as Black by today's standards. End Thread.

Off topic and tinfoil hat stuff I guess but I'm sticking to it. Pasteurized cheese product. The shelf life is so good that it could have still been fresh today had the Pharoahs stashed it in their tombs.

The only people here were Native Americans. No blacks. There are no credible sources that say otherwise.

Whatever you say man. I'm not worried about this board though. What do you have to say about Egypt? You'd probably just swap Native Americans with Egyptians.

Claiming Egypt is only natural for many African Americans to do as modern western education fails to cover historical black achievements and advancements even in predominantly black schools. You’ll read about Christopher Columbus and Alexander Graham Bell but not about the first black man in space, the first black billionaire, or even George Washington Carver.

So this leaves demograhcis in America (largely Hispanics and blacks) with the ignorance of thinking their race or people never accomplished anything of significance throughout history, which we know to be wrong.

The point is that K-12 public western education does a disservice by refusing to tailor some it’s education in history to shine more on the achievements, accomplishments, and contributions from people of color. Only time a black person is mentioned in the history books is due to slavery or civil rights, which is a damn travesty.

Your article mentions several times that no one considers it real cheese, I was looking for a citation that that Americans lie about it being real cheese as you claimed.

Geeze man, I didn't say that Americans lie. My mentioning the cheese thing is just an example of something so small that people would be surprised at once they find out that what it really is. (I probably should have mentioned authentic champagne, Kobe beef, or parmesan from America or something but don't let these examples detract from the point.)
