“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”

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…

…
but…

how—

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.

I MEAN.

OMG. SERIOUSLY.

LIKE.
IT SHOULDN’T BE THIS HARD TO GRASP.

White denial.
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.

Bless this fucking post you have no idea the shit I had to go through as a child when I told them I was from Egypt. They’d be like “but you’re black” or the most ignorant of them all would say “Egypt is not a part of Africa, because Africa is full of black people.” I literally got into fights with people about this.

^^ damn. That struggle must have been tough. Not to imply that you don’t constantly face it. :(

story of my blog


Brooklyn Museum used to have artifacts that looked just liked this. And when I was in elementary school, I was under the impression that Egyptians were LIKE middle easterners or arab (because I didn’t know any better and didn’t know to look further). And seeing artifacts that looked like this one above always confused me, they looked like chubby dark skin Asians to me, but I couldn’t understand why they looked like that because at the time, I couldn’t even bring myself (a black child couldn’t grasp this) to realize they were BLACK/African….
Erasure is scary stuff….propaganda is scary stuff….
