As we watch the 'Roots' remake and acknowledge all of the suffering Black Americans have endured, let's not forget where we came from and the great things our ancestors did before bondage. What languages did they speak? What ethnic groups did they come from? Most importantly what Empires did they build that we are direct descendants of?

Were The Ancient Egyptians Black? The Obsession With White-Washing Ancient Kemet

For many years people of European descent have whitewashed many non-European cultures and turned them into something other than what they originally were. Whether we're talking about Ancient Kemet, al-Andalus (Moorish Spain), or the original Native Americans...the agenda remains the same. This blog entry has been inspired by recent films such as 'Gods of Egypt' and 'Exodus' and asks the question, "Why is it in 2016 we're still debating something that was solved over two decades ago?" The Africanity of the Ancient Kemetians is not only no longer in doubt, the idea that Kemet was White should be relegated to mythology at this point. After reading this you will no longer wonder were the Ancient Egyptians black or not.
