The Black African Khemites (Black Ancient Egyptians)

Black is Ancient Kemet (Egypt)

Several so-called distinguished authors have proposed that “The Egyptians called their country “Kmt” or “Kemet” which means “Black” after the color of the soil.”

This twisted lie is not supported by an analysis of the ancient Egyptian language. There is nothing in the grammar, suggesting that the soil or earth had any connection with the use of the word “Kemet”. The only references to the soil in the names of Ancient Egypt were the names “TaMeri and TaMere”; “Ta” meaning “earth, land, etc.”

The reason for this mis-information is either a delusion urge in some to mis-appropriate the History of the Beautiful Brown people of Africa or otherwise a wicked desire to obscure the patrimony and legacy of the ancient Africans of ancient Egypt.


E. A. Wallis Budge one of the foremost historian and linguist on ancient Egypt had made a comprehensive list of the structure and usages of perhaps the most significant word in the Ancient Egyptian language.

  1. You are using Budge for your translations? Too bad he was mostly wrong. No one worth their salt uses Budge. So everything you say is suspect. Use better resources for your arguments.

    1. Truth is the sword that slays all but itself, and will always defend itself. So keep on denying it’s existence until it bites you in the ass.

    1. You couldn’t be more wrong. The ‘Ta Meri’ means ” my beloved land”. ‘Tawi’ means “the two lands”, in reference to Upper and Lower Egypt.

    2. No. Ta is Ptah, meaning land. Ma means water Ra/Re means fire/sun. Tamari is TamaRa the original and real name for Africa which is really the entire habitable planet.

  2. He was wrong in what respect? Let’s be honest here. There is nothing wrong with Budges translation in and of itself…the racist status quo of the previous century simply didn’t want to accept the truth of the meaning. That they called their land “the land of blacks”, that they called themselves “black people”. You can disagree with some minutiea, but attempting to convey the impression that his work was not scholarly is dishonest. The man wrote at least ten books on the subject of Egyptology so I think he was quite well informed on the subject. How many books has your source written?
    This same tactic was used againgst Herodotus who was universally recognized as the “father of history” until they (so-called scholars) realized he said the Egyptians were black.

      1. Exactly. And I am a woman of color. Full color. Has dating only men of color. So there’s no complex over here.
        I just won’t ascribe to nonsense and foolishness.
        Kemet did not mean the color of a person’s skin, but the soil.
        However, people of color “Full color” were the first to occupy the land.
        Everyone came from p.o.c
        That’s a fact.
        But Black is an adjective given by wannabe Superior European people. And it’s everything NEGATIVE
