Says someone who appears ignorant of the West African empires that run circles around Egpyt. Egpyt is revered by people who love what the Europeans tells them is great. Egypt is Europe's crowning glory because it's where their civilization began - not ours.

You're making yourself look really silly here based on your posts thus far you don't have much room to label anyone ignorant. Your comments on genetics and Amerindians thus far have been off the rails bizarre and inaccurate largely filled with beliefs, assumptions and what your gut says but so far not much of it seems anchored in factual evidence.


Which West African Empires run circles around Egypt? What exactly does run circles around Egypt mean?

You've already shown a strong Eurocentric mentality. It would be a waste of time for me to try to educate you. You aren't going to accept any information that conflicts with your Eurocentric views. You have Google at your fingertips. Use it.

You made a wise choice to concede.

Whatever makes you feel better. You're not 100% confident I'm wrong, which is why you keep asking me to prove things. If you thought I was completely nuts you wouldn't even be reading my posts let alone asking me questions.


You've been lied to. Everyone knows if you tell a lie long enough people will take it as true. Get rid of a people's elders, annihilate their culture, replace it with a fraud and then teach it to the youth (who have no elders to tell them differently)? Gold. See: American history.

What do you mean by "black"? If you mean skin color, then I agree since the artwork left behind depicts ancient Egyptians with reddish-brown skin.

The modern group of humans who look most like ancient Egyptians are found near the horn of Africa region (Ethiopia/Somalia/Eritrea). They closely resemble the people depicted in ancient Egyptian artwork.

Yep, most that I know don't show interest in Egypt. Egypt is mainly "claimed" by European researchers, archaeologists, etc. They seem to show more interest in ancient Egypt than any other group, including the native Egyptians who actually live in Egypt.

Meh. Tell it to the crowd who disdains these glorious empires for a place 5000 km away.

A noticeable segment of African-Americans. Who else? That is the subject of the thread.

You're projecting. Most black people don't give a damn about Egypt. You're showing your ignorance and just making things up based on your biases. As was said by two people before me, blacks who make any mention of Egypt usually do so in relation to Kemet. You all should really start socialing with black people instead of learning about them through media platforms. Expand your life.
