I love how "people" try so hard to divorce Egypt from Africa. Egypt is in Africa therefore the native people are... wait for it... Africans. In America, African equals Black. Sure Hale Berry isn't literally black in color but she's considered black. There are people in India that are darker than most "African Americans" (read: Blacks) but they are clearly not called "Black" they are called "Indian". Sure there are plenty of Arabs in Egypt today. That's like judging the native people of America by the current population of Boston. Ancient Egyptians are "Black" by the American definition of the word. If they aren't then neither was Michael Jackson post 1990. Think of it this way: Scandinavians are a very different color from Greeks but they are al considered "white" since they are from Europe (aka the west coast of Asia... but that's a whole 'nother rant).

To clear some things up Black Adam is not from Egypt. And secondly he doesn't look black at all, as mater of fact he looks white. Now that I got that out of the way being African does not equate to being black. If we go by your definition, then the white population of South Africa is black. Now going back to Ancient Egypt a lot of the mummies are shown to be (genetically) the same as the Egyptians living in Egypt today (I also read about some pharaohs who were supposedly red headed).

@kingrobbstark: Me: Egypt is in Africa. You: Bu Bu But that doesn't make the Egyptians black blah blah South Africans (read: transplanted Europeans) blah blah mummy DNA.

I get it. You think Black people only count as gang bangers and slaves. Couldn't possibly be the first people who built the first world empire. Keep combing the internets for clues that Egypt and Jesus were really blonde Europeans. All the argument I need is a map. Stare at it...

@edblank: North Africa has never been black, and that is a fact. What you're insinuating is that anything in Africa is by default black, and that is incorrect. Africa is an old continent (the birth place of all of us), and can fit more than one people.

And I would appreciate it if you stop putting words in my mouth just because you didn't like what I have to say, and calling me a racist means you have nothing more informative to say. As for black empires, the Nubian empire, one of the greatest in ancient human history, is a great example. I suggest you read up you ignorant douche.

@kingrobbstark: Africans built Ancient Egypt. I know this shatters your worldview but there's a little thing called dealing with it.

@edblank: Preach on. I find it funny that KingRobbStark claims that not all Africans are black, yet the ENTIRE European continent is considered white. From the Spanish to the Dutch to the Slavs, all are classified as white. Gerard Butler(Scottish) played a Grecian king in the 300 film despite not being Greek. He's also set to star in a new film called Gods of Egypt as an Egyptian god....yeah, Gerard Butler is about to play an Egyptian god set in ancient Egypt. SMH
