People really don’t believe Ancient Egyptians were ethnically African?
Perri: It’s sad but true, so many people don’t believe it. :(
Yup and if you ask the average American they will automatically say The Middle East…
Look at their lips!
This man up there favors my great great granddaddy (I’m of African descent, just so you all know)
EYES, NOSE—LIPS AGAIN.
IT SHOULDN’T BE THIS HARD TO GRASP.
Remember, around the time white people became obsessed with Egypt and began romanticizing its history, they still were allowed to openly hate POC. They refuse to believe that so much power, grace, and beauty could come from people they despised(read: were jealous of).
It’s all just a superiority complex to mask their innate insecurity. It’s why they happily lump Egypt in with the Middle East and completely erase Black Egypt from the picture and instead focus on Arab Egypt.
It’s also why they have taken to dividing Africa into North Africa and “Sub-Saharan Africa” as if everything that is not of the “exotic desert” is inferior and savage.
Taxonomy and classism are just a few of white people’s favorite things to do to make themselves feel like they run shit.
The term “middle east” didn’t even exist before the 1960s.
incase you crackers didn’t know
Egypt is in Africa
Egyptians are African
