The Black Egyptians: 10,000 BC to 2007 AD

The Black Egyptians: 10,000 BC to 21st Century AD 

About a year ago,
one of my uncles wrote to
me from Egypt, quite bitterly.
He said:

People are so busy discussing
and fighting over whether or not
the ancient Egyptians were “black”
—that they forgot we’re still here.

We still exist.

The Arabs who claim to be Egyptians
have not exterminated ALL of
us yet.

Kola, you live in America, you’re somebody
over there. Why don’t you say something?

You’re only claiming SUDAN. But that’s not right.

Your father was an Egyptian.

  1. My lady returned from egypt in july and told of how the arabs there tried to claim origin. But when she started to speak words in the Khamtian tongue they were 1. shocked and amazed and 2. humbled into telling the truth that they moved into the land after the originals were long gone. Its amazing how they try. u now have whites on youtube trying to claim Egyptian. LOL.

  2. I agree that it is ridiculous to have to claim the original Egyptian as Black. Black Nation(Kemet) is the original name of what we now call Egypt.

    The miseducation of any man whether white or black is utter devestation of the individual and total discredation to our people.

    Time to really work on getting back to our natural state which is one of spiritual sensitivity, closeness with the creator and access to the power and wisdom of those before us. Our ancestors!

  3. AS SURE AS THE SUN IS RED AND I AM THE BROWN EARTH WITH THE PURENESS OF THE MOONS LIGHT ,I AM THE FIRSTLIGHT AND I AM BLACK WOMAN,QUEEN OF HEAVEN MOTHER EARTH.

  4. One must remember that there is divine order in the universe. We must not get caught up in the struggle of trying to defeat the trickery that has been placed on our people. Truth always prevail.

  5. That is why this movie 10,000 BC ticks me off because it acts as though Black Africans don’t exist and had nothing to do with Pyramids.

    10,000 BC Racist Historical Crap

    Director Roland Emmerich should be ashamed of himself.

    When will we get it right and stop putting this racist crap on the movie screens? Any historian will tell you that Egypt ( its part of Africa not the middle East) and the Tigris/Euphrates Valley has well-developed civilizations, even 12,000 years ago. And yes African or descendants of Ham first settled both of those societies. That’s why the original settlers in Mesopotamia were called the black-headed people.

    We have used the image of white people in furs, i.e. cavemen and women, as the image of early man so much that its hard to contemplate that African and Asian people were never cave people and yet their lineage is much older than Caucasians.

    We have an ongoing series about caveman where they boast of giving man the wheel and fire as they none of these things happened before whites appeared. Bull

    Our information about the history of man was put together during the early part of this century when white anthropologist were convinced that Africa and African people were insignificant. Even in this picture there does not appear to be any Black people other than faces in the crowd.

    The movie says that this was the first hero and implies that this was the beginning of man’s rise to civilization. Then it leads to pyramids and still no Black or brown faces.

    Caucasians had nothing to do with pyramids and nor were their any proof of any Caucasian presence in the early history of anywhere pyramids can be found.

    I don’t care about the Saber tooth tigers but I am tired of this racist twisting of history that refuses to acknowledge that Europe was actually the last continent to get civilization in 50 BC when Julius Caesar and the Romans invaded. Most of the Roman army was North Africans and blacker than I am because most of the original Roman territory was North Africa. Remember Hannibal a Black General of Carthage. The barbarians were originally the white tribes of Europe.

    Every scientist will tell you that man was in Africa first and was Black. Yet we still use the old anthropology scales that show the rise of man from ape to Homo Sapiens and the Homo Sapiens is always a white man in furs. My kids are very confused when I show them the truth.

    Why is all they can say? Why?

  6. actually blacks did have a significant role in 10000 bc. Regardless of what hollywood depicts modern history is giving blacks their due credit. In the grand scheme of things we must never forget that we are all one and their are messed up things about every race.

    1. Well yes we do. The way it is done is be the pigment count in the skin and bones. The higher the count. The darker the person. Stop the miseducation please.

  7. Everything we read in books and things we see is all hearsay. None of us know whether or not people were white, black, brown or gold. All we know is that people existed, and that is all that matters. If you believe this is the first time Hollywood has changed something to match a certain ideal, then you are extremely mistaken. If it wasn’t for 10,000 B.C. I never would have started researching Black Egyptians and the past as it pertained. Not to mention any one who believes a race that lived in the desert was not brown to black is a fool. Perhaps the film maker did not want to show black egyptians as the first slave owners.

  8. The following Quotes are on the Predominant and Original Population of Ancient Egypt According to European “Scholars” and “Historians”

    From 1867A.D. – by Egyptologist Champolion-Figeac – “The first tribes that inhabited Egypt that is, the Nile Valley between the Syene cataracts and the sea, came from Abyssinia to Sennar. The ancient Egyptians belonged to a race quite similar to the Kennous or Barabras, present inhabitants of Nubia. In the Copts of Egypt we do not find any of the characteristic features of the ancient Egyptian population. The Copts are the result of crossbreeding with all the nations that have successively dominated Egypt . It is wrong to seek in them the principal features of the old race.” From Letters published by Champollion-Figeac (Founding Egyptologist).

    Also written by Jean Francois Champollion – “Dr. Larrey investigated this problem in Egypt; he examined a large number of mummies, studied their skulls, recognized the principle characteristics, tried to identify them in the various races living in Egypt, and succeeded in doing so. The Abyssinian seemed to him to combine them all, except for the black race. The Abyssinian has large eyes, an agreeable glance¬.prominent cheekbones; the cheeks form a regular triangle with prominent angles of the jawbone and mouth; the lips are thick without being everted as in Blacks; the teeth are fine, just slightly protruding ; finally, the complexion is merely copper-colored: such are the Abyssinians observed by Dr. Larrey generally known as Berbers or Barabras, present-day inhabitants of Nubia.” found in Dr. Larry investigated this problem in Egypt; he examined a large number of mummies, studied their skulls, recognized the principle characteristics, tried to identify them in the various races living in Egypt, and succeeded in doing so.

    1911 – Anatomist Grafton Elliot Smith – “the physical characteristics of the present day Nubian, Beja, Danakil, Galla, and Somali populations are if we leave out of account the alien negro and Semitic traits…are an obvious token of their undoubted kinship with the proto-Egyptians.” . Found on page 75 in the Ancient Egyptians and the )rigin of Civilization (London/New York, Harper & Brothers).

    “The Egyptians, though healthy, large and robust were clumsy in their forms and course in their features. Like other African tribes they were woolly haired, flat-nosed and thick lipped, and if not absolutely black were very near it in color. “ Specimens of Ancient Sculpture Society of Dilettanti, Vol 1. quoted by J.A. Rogers, Nature Knows No Color Line p. 41, 1952.

    On the Fellaheen of Egypt and Sinai until the 19th Century

    In the 19th century and in the centuries previous European visitors to from the 19th century and before commonly contrasted the dark brown, “half-naked” and indigenous Fellaheen agriculturalists with the fair or pale-complexioned Turks dressed in robes and furs that had entered the country I large numbers. Today most natives of the United Arab Republic of Eygpt consider themselves (thanks to European colonials) representative of the indigenous people of ancient Egypt . However, it is clear that less than a century ago this was not the case. Most of the agriculturalists in Egypt had absorbed for centuries the incoming Bedouins of the Arabian peninsula who were evidently of the same color as the indigenous Egyptians as well as large numbers of slaves in early days from Asia and later mostly African and Slavic. On the other hand Turks in the 18th through 20th centuries made up a rather significant portion of Egypt ’s major cities and their descendants remain representative of the upper class of Egypt .

    1845 – A traveling lawyer from the mid 19th century Dawson Borrer wrote of, “gaunt brown fellahs half unclad, women wrapped up in scanty unwashed garments… with their faces daubed in curious devices of blue paint… and naked children…” from A Journey from Naples to Jerusalem, by Way of Athens, Egypt and the Peninsula of Sinai…” p. 90 by Dawson Borrer, Esquire translation by M. Linant de Bellefonde.

    1899 – About the city of Cairo and it’s fair-skinned Turks and its native Arab fellaheen “east of this line 500,000 brown skinned Arabs are living in the quaintest and most delightful, but at the same time dirtiest and most dilapidated streets.. Cairo has a population of some 600,000 inhabitants” p. 74 from The Redemption fo Egypt by William Basil Worsfold published in 1899 by G. Allen.

    2002 – The Muslim News Online concerning upper class in Egypt and continued treatment of the darker or brown Egyptians:
    “… racial prejudice is not exclusively directed at those from sub-Saharan Africa. Upper class Egyptians, often fairer than their poorer compatriots, invariably look down on lower class Egyptians who tend to be darker in complexion. There is a subtle correlation between lower income and darker complexion. The Egyptian upper classes and elites tend to be noticeably lighter in complexion than their poorer and working class compatriots. “They labour in the sun,” is sometimes the cynical explanation.” Retrieved two August 27, 2008.

  10. The “debate” on what race the Ancient Egyptians belonged to, appears to be an interminable one, popping up relentlessly everywhere there’s a discussion about these great people. So let us pause momentarily and tally exactly where we stand thus far…

    All those who say that the Ancient Egyptians were not Black folks:

  11. If you ask me what race do I think egyptians were I would say that they are a mixture of indian and black african{nubian,ethiopian,and the dark skinned dravidians of india}.It is clear in there paintings that,as you see they had a maroon,burgandy or reddish to dark reddish brown complexion.

  12. the eygptians or khemetins were black ,black people been on this earth for millions of years ,its just in these last six thousand years that the caucaszoid this unatural man has arisen ,it took 600-1000 years to grapht them out of the black mans weakest germ,recessive gene. we wrote our destiny two million years before it happened,that’s our true spiritual connection to god. we taught every race of people how to live,and now they discredit the melanin that is the true nature of god.

  13. The dravidians of india and the indigenous people (shudras) are black in color and would in the US and most European countries be considered black if they did not identify with Indian culture.

  14. the ancient eygptions usually dipicted men in red and women in yellow.that does not mean they were american indian men(red) and chinese women (yellow). they called themselves khamau(black-kham–beings-au). what we must understand is the europeans teach history not forfact but for thier own self esteem.imagine from your birth date you were a barbarian and then discovered civilisation and all of a suddan you became aware you are a barbarian which is not a normal human trait. whould you not find a history fit enough to represent you.evan if it means robbing others.to feel more human that is.

  15. almost all european countries have fought each other, germany attacked austria, russia attacked germany, which inturn war poland, england attacked normandy.these are all in the last fivety years plus, many more at the same time they attacked the middle east for oil, colonailised and stired up trouble all over africa. no african country has ever done that or evan attack a neibour african country..thancient romans attacked the germans many times, raped, killed and murded white germania women and kids.killed gauls, fought white people in panonia .and were horrible to woman and pratice pederfilia with in marriage wife and nero killed his mum and first had his male servents penis cut of and shaped like a virgina so he can have sex with him..the greeks were in war with other white people of greece and remained in war throughout its history.. today the white man is in the middle east killing women, children and men for oil.the so called rich robbing the poor.europe is still fed by the thrid world-fruits and veg grown aboartd.barbariuns playing humans is the caurse of african and world suffering.black history on the other hand is full of humans and humanity and civilisation. the white man has to try to change history cause like his ancestors he still loves of little boys which he go to find in tailand , he hates himself and tries to mirror himself in our b lack image-look at his music and. resesssive man

  16. It is heartening to hear that in Egypt and Israel the original people of lands are still there although hidden from the broader humanity. It is good to always hear from you brothers and sisters and although I am in south africa, the last african country to get independence in 1994, you are not forgotten and it warms us greatly when we know that one day african lands and spirituality will be reclaimed and restored to its rightful owners. The truth about african history and its greatness can no longer be hidden from humanity.

  17. It is a sad state when the culture of a race is defined by skin color.
    I wish that all humans were born with the same skin pigments.
    But then it would come down to eye color or body mas.
    What ever your faith or color is,it will not matter in the end.Death is the great equalizer.

  18. White Arabs invaded Egypt around 700 BC and has yet to leave. It is absurd to think that people in places today, outside of Africa, are indigenous to those locations. At the dawn of great African civilizations, including Egypt, Europe, Greece and Rome did not exist. Albinos, Whites and non-blacks, came into existence around 6,000 years ago (via grafting process on the island of Pelan (Patmos), according to science. The stormed out of the caves in Caucus around 2,000 BC attacking black nations throughout the world. Black is the indigenous race on earth and only race of hue-mans. All others are genetic mutations of the Black gene, due to a lack of Carbon (melanin) the building blocks of life.
    Do the research: anyone who is not black is a hybrid! Get some melanin (Carbon) and stop the madness.
