No, You Wuzn't Kangz

The latest "blockbuster" movie Black Panther posits a mysterious Hidden Kingdom of Super Niggaz which purports to show what Africa would be like if White colonialism hadn't destroyed it. It's as ridiculous as you might expect, but the "we wuz kangz" gibber has become increasingly strident among our duskier fellow citizens for several years now. Apparently they are tired of being portrayed by Hollywood as "victims", i.e. slaves.

"The first ever genetic analysis of mummies found that ancient Egyptian kings were more closely related to West Asians than Africans, according to a study published Tuesday by scientists at the Max Planck Institute. The research found that ancient Egyptians were most closely related to Neolithic Levantine, Anatolian and European populations. The mummies tested did not share strong genetic links to Africa often found in modern Egyptians."

(By the way, the fact that ancient Egyptians were not negroes has been known for several centuries, since Egyptology as a science began, due to the depiction of real negroes in hieroglyphs and frescos on the walls of ancient temples and pyramids, as well as in scrolls and other remains. Blacks are indeed depicted---as slaves, battle captives, etc.)

“This suggests that an increase in Sub-Saharan African gene flow into Egypt occurred within the last 1,500 years,” Wolfgang Haak, who led the research team, said in a statement. “The genetics of the Abusir el-Meleq community did not undergo any major shifts during the 1,300 year timespan we studied, suggesting that the population remained genetically relatively unaffected by foreign conquest and rule,” Haak said.

"It’s further evidence that ancient Egyptians were genetically different than modern day residents. Scientists largely agree that ancient Egyptians were indigenous to the Nile area, but a vocal minority of Afrocentric scholars claim that the area’s ancient population was entirely African. Those scholars claim ancient Egyptians were similar to Sub-Saharan African cultures, arguing that famous Egyptian rulers, including Tutankhamun and Cleopatra, were more African than Caucasian."

(Uh .... no. Like so much liberal horse shit, that is simply not true, and no amount of ooking and eeking and Twitter-shaming and threatening scientists' and academics' careers if they don't toe the line can make it true.
We have statuary portraits of Tutankhamen and while he wasn't exactly a Viking, neither was he a negroid. Cleopatra wasn't even Egyptian, she was Ptolemaic Greek and probably didn't even speak the language of the common people of the nation she ruled. Contemporary accounts by Roman chroniclers who met her personally when she was living in Rome for a time, after Caesar but before Antony, describe her as a blonde. There are surviving coins bearing her likeness, and while it is crude and probably not much good as a portrait, the likeness is that of a Caucasian woman.)

"Researchers analyzed ancient DNA from mummified Egyptians who lived from 1400 B.C. to 400 A.D., establishing that mummies can be a reliable source for genetic material to study the ancient past. The study could open the door to further genetic testing of mummified remains. More than 151 individual mummies were examined during the research. Scientists recovered mitochondrial genomes from 90 individuals and genome-wide data sets from three individuals."

I myself only needed to examine one unwrapped mummy, at the Chicago Museum of Natural History. One look at the skull and the desiccated lips and nose, and you know this guy was no porch monkey.

Judging from the representations on the aforementioned temple walls, etc. the ancient Egyptians probably looked a lot like today's Mexicans, although some of the brown skin portrayed in the stylized art may be due to simple suntan. In fact, Mesoamerican Indians such as the Maya and Aztecs were the only other known pyramid-builders in world history. There has been a lot of speculation about links between the two cultures, although I don't buy it.

[Sigh ...] No, the Egyptians were not black and you wuzn't never kangz, Jamal. If anybody actually cares for the truth, which fewer and fewer people do.

Oh, no!
But do not be angry Jamal. Africans are still the creators of ancient greek culture:

I think that the picture you show is of 'Emperor' Jean Bokassa at his wedding. It is believed that he spent about one third of the GNP of Cameroon on it. It is also believed that some choice cuts from some of his enemies were served during the wedding feast, as you do in Africa. Our nigger friends are often amusing and entertaining if nothing else.

Let us not forget ancient Egyptians painted themselves brick red to show affinity with the sun god (RA) but female Egyptians were painted a yellowish-white. The problem with oil based paint is over the centuries the red turns brown leading us to believe ancient Egyptians were browner than they were.

In Tut's case some of his funeral objects depict him in his royal chariot running over Nubians (AKA black Africans) in addition to shooting them with arrows. Apparently the Nubians were disrupting Egypts gold trade down south and robbing and killing Egyptian caravans so Tut had to personally handle the situation. The more things change...
PS: We really do not see a black African influence in the royal line until the 25th Dynasty. I believe Tut was the 18th dynasty.
