    Because Unkotare
    people of every race and class have been affected by class discrimination.
    I never understood how pervasive it was,
    until I read a story written by an Asian girl who "scrubbed" her dark skin daily
    trying to be white like her sister. I never HEARD of such a thing!
    In my family, some of my siblings have my dad's tanner darker skin
    and some of us have my Mom's light complexion. I always saw it
    as taking after Dad or Mom, not as a white privilege thing.

    Skin color isn't just an obsession with White Europeans
    vs. Black African descendants. The whole "light skin dark skin" obsession
    has people arguing if
    * Black people are selling out to look or act White for class privilege
    * Latinos are selling out or not
    not just European white people pulling the White privilege card.

    People are still arguing on both sides "whether Beyonce is selling out by
    lightening her skin" or if she is just like any other show biz person changing
    their appearance to be as marketable as possible.

    Until people get this resolved, apparently they won't get over it!

    It's a class issue, and skin color is how it manifests where people
    can see something going on, and question where did that come from???

    yeah i tend to agree that the Egyptians would have resembled the richness of their surroundings and trading partners in looks. dark in skin and complexion. i bet the royals and aristocrats would have married the most exotic from foreign lands. choosing those that had looks different than those native to Egypt.

    its all BS, they were white , totally white, with almost 0 Sub-Saharan DNA, the current mummies´ studies gave this result . the blackness in modern day Egyptians, is a product of Islamic slavery and Muslim Egypt´s Nile contacts

    it's not so much skin color as actions that tell the story for recent times
    and then why zero in on Egyptians??
