Egypt Is In Africa Was Black, and Called Kemet Before Foreign Invasions.

Kemet means "people of the Black" How does that knowledge change the self image and esteem of the global African diaspora. What will happen when the oil of Egypt is no longer valuable?


Egyptologists, writers, scholars, and others, have argued the race of the ancient Kemet (Egyptians) since at least the 1970s. Most reputable scholars today accept they were multi ethnic sub-Saharan Africans.

Over the years, Egypt has had a particularly difficult time coming to grips with the truth of its African identity. Ancient Egypt or Kemet as the ancients called themselves did not originate in any way shape ofr form from Arabs or Europeans! Period! That is the truth. Slender, beautiful, blue-black-skinned Southern Sudanese women, who walk around Cairo with their thick, kinky hair woven distinctively in intricate braids, are routinely the targets of verbal public abuse. Yet it is their bloodlines who built the greatness of Kemet called Egypt by foreigners.


Not the Eurasians who were the nomads who plagued the border regions of Ancient Kemet that armies protected from raids, pilllaging and theft. Now their descendants have stolen the identitiy of those who built the pyramids and were the eventual cause of the collapse of Kemet as a world power. Egypt is the s0-called "Middle East's" biggest country, but it is facing a deepening economic crisis. The government has been borrowing money to keep feeding its 105 million people. The “good” part is the western and southern Sinai with the Suez Canal and the famous Red Sea Riviera. This part makes money for Egypt: $9 billion in 2023 mostly from the Suez transit fees.


Egypt needs to grow its economy and fix its chronic current-account deficit. But its private sector is anemic and sky-high interest rates will be a drag on growth. To counter this Egypt has agreed to an expanded $8 billion support program with the International Monetary Fund in March 2024, letting its currency depreciate a little more slowly with the hope that Egyptians abroad, nervous of transferring money into a tanking currency, will not continue withholding remittances.


Egypt's struggling economy faces morenew risks as the war in the neighbouring Gaza Strip threatens to disrupt tourism bookings and natural gas imports. Egypt's struggling economy faces even more new risks as the war in the neighbouring Gaza Strip threatens to disrupt tourism bookings and natural gas imports. Egypt’s membership to the Agadir Free Trade Agreement with Morocco, Tunisia and Jordan, the East African Community and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa has underpinned its push to work in concert with African markets. Historically, the long relationship between black Africans and black ancient Egypt differed dramatically from what is seen in modern Egypt. The relationship dynamic and presence of Nubia, Egypt’s great neighbor whom they considered their brothers was changed under "Egyptians" that formed under the oppressive rule of Assyrians and Persians, a decline that eventually placed Ptolomy in charge of the most important civilization in the world.


Social climbing was not encouraged, nor was it observed for most of Egypt's history, as it was thought that the gods had decreed the most perfect social order which was in keeping with the central value of the culture, ma'at (harmony and balance).This is not to say that if one was poor they were unable to gain riches in fact the opposite was true. Guilds of merchants and Artisans were rewarded and econoic stability was encouraged. But a goldsmith was neither encoursaged or discouraged to become a scribe, lawmaker or seek military endeavors. There was no advantage to these positions as none were based on precepts of being self serving.


The Egyptians believed their world was governed by ma’at, a divine force of cosmic balance, which is what provided stability. The centrally-organized storehouse economy and state-run distribution system supplied the people with a fixed wage based on their labor type and skill level.Hard work and skill brought monetary advance not proximity to a specific class. In the autumn of 332 BCE Alexander the Great invaded Egypt with his mixed army of Macedonians like himself and Greeks and found the Egyptians ready to throw off the oppressive control of the Persians. Alexander was welcomed by the Egyptians as a liberator and took the country without a battle.


Greeks and their neighboring populations are basically a mixture of Aegeans (a Mediterranean type local to the area) and Epirotics (Dinarics(e)) and are descended from the ancient inhabitants of the lands in which they live. The presence of individuals which approximate the Nordic race is minimal, and does not exceed 4-6% even in the most depigmented groups of Greece. So Brad Pitt as an Ancient Achilles would be as unlikely as Yul Brynner as an Ancient Phaoroah Ramses!


These images of ancient figures are fictions to support an ideology of anti blackness. Or a war so to speak on melanated people, their importance and even presence in history. The global acknowledgement of ancient Nubia and Egypt as Black African civilizations destroys the logic of racism, especially American racism with its strongly polarizing and laughable view of a Eurocentric based discovery of EVERYTHING!


In the 8th century BC Kushite rulers were crowned as Kings of Egypt, ruling a combined Nubian and Egyptian kingdom as pharaohs of Egypt’s 25th Dynasty. Those Kushite kings are commonly referred to as the “Black Pharaohs” in both scholarly and popular publications.


That terminology is often presented as a celebration of black African civilization. But it also reflects a longstanding prejudice and misinformation trope that holds the Egyptian pharaohs and their people weren’t African ... that is, not Black. It’s a trope that feeds into a long history of anti-black racism that traces back to the the founding precepts of Egyptology and its role in the creation of the fiction of the white Ancient African“ and scientific” racism in the U.S.
