There was no "Jim Crow" Race as we understand it today did not develop until laws were passed making slavery race-based
in the New World identities of "Black" and "White" developed then.

What is "Jim Crow race" ?

Here is another pic of egyptian mummy with afro-hair ( wooly)

The ancient romans didn't care less to answer such a question..

Well, I'm under the impression that culture, customs, dress and beliefs of the Nilotic peoples shed light on who their ancestors are. There were other videos that showed the customs and ways of the Egyptians of Old to be strictly African in the fullest sense...it makes "eurasian" claim absurd.

From my point of view.. Egyptian civilization is a mix between semitic ( caucasian ) and black-african culture and ethnicity

It's kinda tricky using culture to determine if people have the same racial/genetic make up. People can share some cultural similarities while being of different racial make ups. DNA testing can tell you the specific make up of people.

That looks to be Queen Nomit. According to this link that's likely a wig she has on.

People of the time would not have had the same concepts of European vs African. That's a modern division. The populations surrounding the Mediterranean Sea would have had a lot more exchange of goods and culture (and DNA) than N Africa had with more southerly Africa, or S Europe has with more northerly Europe. It should be no surprise that there's Eurasian heritage in N Africa or African heritage in S Europe.

Broadly speaking, Egypt was more of an empire than a nation. Naturally it was rather diverse.
