You don't even know how to say 'Carthaginians'. And I'm betting the only evidence you can offer for their blackness is 'because I said so'.

Incredible...Yes, Cartaginians were blacks. They wanted Romans to dance Hip Hop, hence the battle of Cannas. Yes, Tunisians are black. They eat their cous cous with a lot of ketchup.

Which of course became the home of the later film festival. And now we know where the term film noir was coined. Our knowledge is growing here by leaps and bounds!

Carthage was a Phoenician colony. Phoenicians established themselves a major power in the Mediterranean circa 1200BC. And like those of their contemporary, they were very much of the Mediterranean look you still see today.

The following link is to a Phoenician sculpture which looks very much European, it definitely does not have negroid features.

Here is another Phoenician artifact, a sarcophagus found in Sidon circa 400BC. Very caucasian without any negroid features. sarcophagus

Semitic, they were semitic. Just like Arabs and Jews. Lybians were also white. Just like Gadaffi, for example, he's a bedouin. The blacks you see in Northern Africa were brought as slaves after the invasion of Islam, 680 AC, I think.

I had the privledge of living in Benhazi, Libya as a child - what made this a wonderful and memorable experience were all our trips to Cyrene and nearby areas exploring the ruins. Some things were not so wonderful and that does not pertain to this.

Back to your Carthaginians, these were a people of many races.

The Phoenicians were traders of finished luxury goods: fine linen, royal purple textiles, carved ivory, cedar timber, glass and spices.

I'm looking for this text in a pdf or html form. i can't find it anywhere in my local libraries or on google.

I believe this text can help greatly in understanding the relationship of the Moors within medieval Spain especially between the Moors that were in the Iberian peninsula for generations and their recently immigrated North African counterparts.

I'd appreciate any help with this my fellow history lovers.
