That was awesome. I remember in high school they started fessing up to the fact that Egyptians were AT LEAST people of color, but they just couldn't accept the fact that they were Black. I have even heard people use the current Middle Eastern- looking Egyptians as proof that they were not Black, except that argument is invalid as well because the Moors did not invade Egypt until a few centuries ago.I went to an Egyptian art museum and the tour guide just got off on showing the differences between the Egyptians and Nubians, stating that the Egyptians hated Black people and enslaved them. I have given up caring whether people believe ancient Egypt was Black or not. If people are stupid enough to believe aliens built the pyramids, I can't be bothered with their levels of desperation or ignorance
I don't think I've seen you 'round the bar before.
I admit, I have been lurking in admiration on this site for a few weeks.This has to be one of the most insightful blogs I've come across yet. I found you by way of the Blasian Narrative :)
Hi, fellow lurker! ^_^
great video really cool here are some more cool videos http://www.youtube.com/user/dogons2k12
Awesome video. I noticed that in movies, Hollyweird would always portray Egytpians as tan-skinned people, but white actors were always playing them. I noticed that in the clip there were two POC portraying Egyptians, although in real life only one of them is part Black. In the movie "Stargate", biracial actor Jaye Davidson plays the Egyptian ruler, Ra. And in "The Mummy" movies, mestiza actress Patricia Velasquez plays Egyptian Anck-Su-Namun. The only movie where a POC played Cleopatra was played by Chilean actress Leonor Varela.
To give twist to a quote by Joseph Goebbels: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people (Of Color) will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State (Whites in power) can shield the people (Of Color) from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State (Whites) to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State (White supremacy).”
And they try desperately to hide the truth...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EKkvhOva4g
I like your style...
Interesting that the most historically accurate (modern day) imagery of Egypt comes from a music video by Michael Jackson.Remember the time...uhHUHoops! Sorry Ank...spilled my drink all over the bar cracking up at my silly self ;)
I always had an issue with how Egypytians were portrayed in school.I would always say like wait a minute ain't Egypt in Africa , why do they look white in the movies.Ex: Mummy. Can anyone tell me why Rachel Weisz was supposedly Egyptian in the movie, that lady dont look like she got a drop of any color in her blood but they was trying to say that she was a descendent from Egyptian royalty, yea sure I believe that and unicorns Are real.It's sad but in schools they don't teach this facts or if they do it's a a small paragraph then back to the White Man's Greatness aka History.
