Yes, but there were NOT whites​.

Those whites that can tan are mixed race, but the Greeks and Romans were melanated people.

Besides, Ottoni et al., (2011) have reported that E-M81 appear to constitute a common paternal genetic matrix in the Tuareg populations where it was encountered at high frequency (89 %).

Hence, the distribution of this haplogroup in Africa closely matches the present area of Berber-speaking population’s allocation on the continent, suggesting a close haplogroup-ethnic group parallelism (Bosch et al., 2001; Cruciani et al., 2002; 2004; Arredi et al., 2004; Fadhlaoui-Zid et al., 2011; Bekada et al., 2013). However, knowing that the Berber dialects have been replaced by Arabic in North African populations, carriers of E-M81 haplogroup are currently Arab-speaking peoples whose ancestors were Berber-speaking.


Outside of Africa, E-M81 is almost absent in the Middle East and in Europe (with the exception of Iberia and Sicily). The presence of E-M81 in the Iberian Peninsula (12 % in southern Portugal) (Cruciani et al., 2004) has been attributed to trans-Mediterranean contacts linked to the Islamic influence, since it is typically Berber (Bosch et al., 2001; Semino et al., 2004; Beleza et al., 2006; Alvarez et al., 2009; Cruciani et al., 2007; Trombetta et al., 2011).

It's also funny that whites want to be indigenous to all places on Earth. Heard from a friend they want the UN to classify them as indigenous to southern Africa. Is it certain genes that cause them to behave this way? <--- innocent question.

Can I request that this thread be appropriately moved to the Kemet section, were this kind of discussion is more suited?

It started ok as a "PSA" of some sort by Djehuti but the conversation in general is not suitable for Egyptology IMO.
There also have been more insightful on topic threads that have been moved since new management for comparison... It's only fair.

Meroë, Sudan was places with high priests, the head was placed there because he thought they could find a cure of his illness and pass it on trough the head, so he could heal. He himself actually never was there. This was the case with many of these Romans.


Nice try.

As usual you miss the point entirely. It's the head of the first Roman Emperor Augustus. The fact that it was found in Sudan is irrelevant, it is just basic information that should be given when you post a sculpture, title, date, location, etc

"Nice try" at showing what?

Your comment "Nice try" makes no sense.

It's a Roman sculpture of Augustus who was born in Rome, that is the point, he was a European and looks like one

So that's the reason why you've posted these images from "Europeans" when it came to Africans? Yeah, that's logic.

No I didn't post Europeans when it came to Africans. I posted a Roman when it was implied that the Romans were not Europeans or that they were some kind of mulattoes, that is BS except for a small few with partial North African ancestry

The Numidian differs from the European in all the stereotypical hair and facial
features. The hair is thicker and "wilder."

same sculpture as above:
 -

His nose and lips look partially African but your analysis of the hair is ridiulous and assumes all Europeans have neat straight hair.
Arguing that a small minority of Africans might hair hair like Juba II here is one thing but to suggest that his hair here looks more African than European is pure silliness.
Further, when people like the person below get very short hair cuts their hair appears a lot straighter because they have large curls and large curls need a certain amount of length to begin to form into recognizable curls.

If you looks at depictions of the Numidian kings on coins and so on (-ones in good condition not all worn down) you can easily tell they are not pure Africans, they have quite a bit of Greco-Roman admixture


 -

^^^this guy's hair is closer to Beja than is that bronze of Juba II

So tell, who is that "guy"?

Egyptology: Hanging in the Hair

Egyptology: Hanging in the Hair

by Anu M'bantu and Fari Supia

West Africa Magazine
8th July 2001

F0R YEARS, EGYPTOLOGY has been fighting a losing battle to hold onto an
ancient Egypt that is Caucasian or, at worst, sun-tanned Caucasian. At
the 1974 UNESCO conference Egyptology was dealt a fatal blow. Two
African scholars wiped the floor with 18 world-renowned Egyptologists.
They proved in 11 different categories of evidence that the ancient
Egyptians were Africans (Black).

Following that beating, Egyptology has been on its knees praying to be
saved by science. Their last glimmer of hope has been the hair on
Egyptian mummies. The mummies on display in the world's museums exhibit
Caucasoid-looking hair, some of it brown and blonde. These mummies
include Pharaoh Seqenenre Tao of the 17th dynasty and the 19th dynasty's
Rameses II. As one scholar put it: "The most common hair colour, then as
now, was a very dark brown, almost black colour although natural auburn
and even rather surprisingly blonde hair are also to be found."
Many Black scholars try skillfully to avoid the hair problem. This is a
mistake!

In 1914, a white doctor in Detroit initiated divorce proceeding against
his wife whom he suspected of being a "closet Negro". At the trial, the
Columbia University anthropologist, Professor Franz Boas (1858-1942),
was called upon as a race expert. Boas declared: "If this woman has any
of the characteristics of the Negro race it would be easy to find them .
. . one characteristic that is regarded as reliable is the hair. You can
tell by microscopic examination of a cross-section of hair to what race
that person belongs." With this revelation, trichology (the scientific
analysis of hair) reached the American public. But what are these
differences?

The cross-section of a hair shaft is measured with an instrument called
a trichometer. From this you can get measurements for the minimum and
maximum diameter of a hair The minimum measurement is then divided by
the maximum and then multiplied by a hundred. This produces an index. A
survey of the scientific literature produces the following breakdown:

San, Southern African 55.O0
Zulu, Southern African 55.O0
Sub-Saharan Africa 60.O0
Tasmanian (Black) 64.70
Australian (Black) 68.00
Western European 71.20
Asian Indian 73.00
Navajo American 77.00
Chinese 82.60

In the early 1970s, the Czech anthropologist Eugen Strouhal examined
pre-dynastic Egyptian skulls at Cambridge University. He sent some
samples of the hair to the Institute of Anthropology at Charles
University, Prague, to be analyzed. The hair samples were described as
varying in texture from "wavy" to "curly" and in colour from "light
brown" to "black". Strouhal summarized the results of the analysis: "The
outline of the cross-sections of the hairs was flattened, with indices
ranging from 35 to 65. These peculiarities also show the Negroid
inference among the Badarians (pre-dynastic Egyptians)." The term
"Negroid influence" suggests intermixture, but as the table suggests
this hair is more "Negroid" than the San and the Zulu samples, currently
the most Negroid hair in existence!

In another study, hair samples from ten 18th-25th dynasty individuals
produced an average index of 51! As far back as 1877, Dr. Pruner-Bey
analyzed six ancient Egyptian hair samples. Their average index of 64.4
was similar to the Tasmanians who lie at the periphery of the
African-haired populations. A team of Italian anthropologists published
their research in the Journal of Human Evolution in 1972 and 1980. They
measured two samples consisting of 26 individuals from pre-dynastic,
12th dynasty and 18th dynasty mummies. They produced a mean index of
66.50 The overall average of all four sets of ancient Egyptian hair
samples was 60.02. Sounds familiar . ., just check the table!

Since microscopic analysis shows ancient Egyptian hair to be completely
African, why does the hair look Caucasoid? Research has given us the
answers. Hair is made of keratin protein. Keratin is composed of amino
acid chains called polypeptides. In a hair, two such chains are called
cross-chain polypeptides. These are held together by disulphide bonds.
The bulk of the hair, the source of its strength and curl, is called the
cortex. The hair shafts are made of a protective outer layer called the
cuticle.

We are informed by Afro Hair - A Salon Book, that chemicals for
bleaching, penning and straightening hair must reach the cortex to be
effective. For hair to be permed or straightened the disulphide bonds in
the cortex must be broken. The anthropologist Daniel Hardy writing in
the American Journal of Physical Anthropology, tells us that keratin is
stable owing to disulphide bonds. However, when hair is exposed to harsh
conditions it can lead to oxidation of protein molecules in the cortex,
which leads to the alteration of hair texture, such as straightening.

Two British anthropologists, Brothwell and Spearman, have found evidence
of cortex keratin oxidation in ancient Egyptian hair. They held that the
mummification process was responsible, because of the strong alkaline
substance used. This resulted in the yellowing and browning of hair as
well as the straightening effect. This means that visual appearance of
the hair on mummies cannot disguise their racial affinities.

The presence of blonde and brown hair on ancient Egyptian mummies has
nothing to do with their racial identity and everything to do with
mummification and the passage of time. As the studies have shown, when
you put the evidence under a microscope the truth comes out. At last,
Egyptology's prayers have been answered. It has been put out of its
misery. Its tombstone reads Egyptology, R.I.P June 2001.

The above was very interesting, espesically because Strouhal has some interesting data on the Abusir settlement, which I post at another time.

The term "Negroid influence" suggests intermixture, but as the table suggests this hair is more "Negroid" than the San and the Zulu samples, currently the most Negroid hair in existence!

In another study, hair samples from ten 18th-25th dynasty individuals produced an average index of 51! As far back as 1877, Dr. Pruner-Bey analyzed six ancient Egyptian hair samples. Their average index of 64.4 was similar to the Tasmanians who lie at the periphery of the African-haired populations(1).

A team of Italian anthropologists published their research in the Journal of Human Evolution in 1972 and 1980. They measured two samples consisting of 26 individuals from pre-dynastic, 12th dynasty and 18th dynasty mummies. They produced a mean index of 66.50...

Protrusion of incisors, receding chin and steep mandible. Very vertical zygomatic arches and pronounced maxillary prognathism.

Since people brought up the topic of ancient Rome...

Recently a prominent alt-right propagandist by the name of Paul Joseph Watson tweeted a complaint about the BBC's portrayal of the Roman Empire as having a diverse population, with some Africans present. He ended up earning himself a well-deserved Twitter storm, with plenty of people coming in to school him on the issue. It was beautiful. I can only hope Alex Jones will receive a similar education on Egypt someday.

As an aside, I'd be very interested in meeting some of these friends of DJ who have been out correcting people on the Egypt issue.

Yeah, there are Afrocentrics who do the same thing but they are fewer and farther in between and nobody takes them seriously and of course they don't work in any of the majore alternative media outlets that the Eurocentrics work in which give them more clout. This is why it is important that those of us in the know should actually contact these outlets to correct them!

Sure. It is a full fledged propaganda war. What irritates me
at present is that too often, some blacks do not take the time to
educate themselves on the issues, and build their knowledge accurately,
but instead rely on simplistic memes and/or rhetoric. This is all
well and good for "sound bite" FB posts or Tweets among their homies,
in their own little venues, but it concedes the rest of the
ground to the massive disinformation flow, posing as "objective"
information. So rather than do a quick 3 minute Google search that
can debunk numerous items 0f "fake news" you will find numerous people
just sitting back, while just 1 or 2 carry the whole load. But hey-
post some trivial video about some idiotic "beef" or "thugs,"
and behold, all these missing in action folk come out of the woodwork.

^ By media outlets, I don't just mean Alex Jones' 'Info Wars' although there are a lot of people who follow Alex Jones. That's the problem. It is many 'alt-right' media outlets and even some outlets that are allegedly don't have any politial agendas. They are being flooded with Eurocentric spin on science new stories.

That Ariana Grande has African admixture is no shock. I've heard a news story last year that she constantly relaxes and straight-irons her hair because her natural hair texture is as she herself calls it "ratchet" [sic] which I presume is her derrogatory term for kinky hair (?).

First time I saw her on a tv-show over here, I honestly thought she was Afro-Cuban or something like that.

This also touches foreign newspapers. But most vividly the alt-right and affiliates run with it, of course. Regular folks don't even care.
