    The notion that whites are the only group to notice race is false. The ancient Egyptians (sorry, Egyptologists... they weren't black) were acutely aware of race and considered the black Africans from south of Upper Egypt/Nubia to be quite distinct from themselves. Asians as well have noted race and racial distinctions for thousands of years.

    A recent ethnic group called "the Jews" (typified by Baum, Bruce) seeks to discredit the existence of race because they fear it will lead to another Hitler. But "Hilter Killed Jews" does not equal "Race Does Not Exist".

    Besides, Bass, if whites don't exist, how can blacks? You can't be a racist like yours truly without acknowledging the existence of ALL races.

    Ancient Egyptians were black, thats an argument you will not win and painted themselves different from Europeans and people in the Middle East and studies on their crania indicate they were far closer to Nubians than to people from the Middle East or Southern Europe. A Somali looks distinct from a Ghanaian but both are black.


    Ancient Egyptians didn't notice race in the same sense that people see it today, they cared more about ethnicity, ie, are you Egyptian or not, not whether one was black or white.

    Egyptian rulers were sometimes Nubians from the upper nile kingdom and sometimes they were of GREEK decent.

    You guys apprarently don't realize how LONG that kingdom lasted.

    The OLD Kingdom started in 2649 BC and lasted till 2150 BC.

    The ROMAN empire took it over in 30 AD.

    Dynasties which ruled over Egypt were not ONE race, folks.

    Some of them were Black Africans some of them were Mediteranians.

    I really love watching racists argue with each other about whose racism is wrong/right.

    Cahrlie, you know as much about Ancient Egyptian as you do about modern race relations.

    You are a clueless troll.

    It amuses me when militant black people try to rewrite history to make themselves look better. One wonders though, if you have to constantly lie to yourself and others about what black people have and have not done, it must mean that you arent happy with the accomplishments of the black race, historically speaking. To be honest, im not impressed with the accomplishments of black people throughout history either, though its because of their geographical locations, and NOT the color of their skin.

    The accomplishments of white people on the other hand, are plenty throughout history, therefore you usually wont find white people making shit up to pad the resume of the white race. Occasionally you might get the idiot racist white guy who thinks Jesus had a pale complexion, but racists are always ignorant, regardless of color.

    Do the endless accomplishments of the white race make them any more important than black people? Of course not, but i enjoy pointing this out when idiots pretend their race is better than another. I got history on my side, and all you got are lies, charlie bass.

    Dude, the Bass would educate you about ancient Egypt, the Bass posts on a forum exclusively about Ancient Egyptians and African human variation so you are wrong, very wrong. The ancient Egyptians were black, or would be by today's standards.
