    I dont think so, i think they were medium brown --> google their self-depictions they clearly distinguish themselfes from the SSA race...Greek Writers describe them as Northindian looking and Southindians as Ethiopian looking but with straight hair

    Skin color deepened in people living closer to the Equator as resistance to sunburn and malaria was a superior trait there. Most scientists believe all humans (homo sapiens) can be traced back to an original population in Africa. As humans migrated away, these traits were less valuable and thus, not as pronounced or even lost altogether.

    Malaria accompanied humans moving out of Africa - Sci/Tech - DNA

    Ancient Egypt was founded and built by Mediterranean Caucasians as
    far back as 4500 B.C. Egypt's period of greatness was from 3400 B.C. to 1800
    B.C. and was characterized by its amazing architecture, pyramids, temples,
    and mastery of mathematics and engineering, the remnants of which are still
    evident today. The White Egyptians pioneered medicine, chemistry, astronomy,
    and law; In many cases, their achievements remain unequalled.

    But, about 3400 B.C. Egypt civilization began to spread up the
    Nile River, bringing it in close contact with the black Nubians to the
    south. Soon they were using Blacks for slave labor and Egypt became
    history's first melting pot.

    In time the infusion of Negro blood worked itself up from the
    bottom of Egyptian society. The slaves were eventually freed, received
    political equality, and took posts of authority in government.

    By the time of King Tut (1370-1352 B.C.) even the ruling classes
    had been mongrelized and Egypt began a tailspin downward. Today, the
    once-mighty Egypt is very much a Third World country, having lost its art,
    its medicine, its architectural ability, and its position in world affairs.


    The absurd notion that Ancient Egypt was a product of Negro ingenuity is now
    being widely disseminated in the schools. Though scholars know this is a
    blatant lie, they justify the deception by assuming it will boost the
    "self-esteem" of Black children.

    I know you, why did you follow me here? This topic has been beaten to death in the other forums we posted in, Ancient Egyptians were indigenous Northeast Africans more similar to Nubians, Saharans, and Horn of Africans like Somalis and Ethiopians and looked nothing like Europeans or Arabs.

    I always thought they were probably black, just based on the artisitic renderings we have of them and their desk masks.

    But honestly, who cares? What difference does it make?

    Hi Bass, cool to see you around... I think they looked like they look today, how can a whole population/nation dissappear and become another race?

    Migration from the Middle East and Europe changed some of the population, but the southern part of Egypt is where the people closest to the originals are and they look like, well, Nubians, Saharans and Somalis or close to them.



    PS: While you're here, make yourself useful and fight against the pro-homosexuals here because the consensus here is that homosexuality is ok and accepted by God.

    For the Africanists and people who study Egyptology this is important, a lot of people have misperceptions about African peoples and Egyptians are one of them.
