    I figure they were black in the beginning. History has shown us they were very diverse people.
    My best guess is, it depends on what generation of egyptians you are referring to.

    Black people are desperate to lay claim to ancient egypt because actual history doesnt feature many of their kind and it makes them feel insecure. The fact that Egypt is technically located on the continent of Africa doesn't mean the ancients were black.

    I always figured it was the further inland you got, the blacker they got.

    But if the blacks did claim Egypt for their heritage, then white people can then go after them for the 1st reparations for slavery. Do they really want to go there?

    isn't that "up" the nile?

    Remember you describe rivers by how they flow, not the direction on the map. Upstream is "up" even though its down on our maps and globes.

    yes, and "up" would be heading south or inland, and now we are discussing river flow in a probably to become very racist thread.
