Just wondering. I go on Youtube to watch a video about Ancient Egypt and ALL the comments are about racists arguing over what color they were. I'm not racist... but it has sparked some interest. I always thought that they were a multi-racial civiliziation because they were the capital of the Ancient world, so I figured you couldn't pertain them to one race. When i look at their art work I see mostly lighter skinned blacks (kind of like nubians maybe a shade darker, maybe a mix of caucasians and Nubians) and caucasians. There are dark blacks too (by dark blacks Im referring to more central and southern africans) but i see more dominatly lighter skinned. It's kind of like America to me. A very diverse country to me. I would say they were more dominatly lighter skinned blacks than dark-skinned. OLike if you look at America. Our blacks are not very very dark like Nigerians they are lighter. This is what I think the Egyptians were.
Another theory was that they were Nubians back in that day until Atlantis "fell" and all the Atlantians conquered Egypt making them more diverse and Ancient Egypt as we know it was born. But I don't know... That's why I am asking you guys.

When I look at their art I see they portray the darker blacks as this:
When they portry theirselves. They are significanlty lighter, but they still are "black" just lighter skinned blacks" When I look at their art I see mostly lighter skinned blacks and very tan caucasians from being in the Egyptain sun. lol
By dark blacks I'm referring to congo-nigerian blacks. Very dark complexion as in central Africa. By "white or caucasian" I'm referring Euroasian people and possibly Sumerians were involved in Ancient Egypts color and most of them were more "white". At least they look white by their facial features.
Another reason that people could think Anceint Egyptians were white is because their facial features were more subtle than what people normally think of "black" like a nigerian. But i think they were lighter "blacks".
