Scientists at Zurich-based DNA genealogy center iGENEA reconstructed the DNA profile of the boy Pharaoh supported a movie that was made for a Discovery Channel special.

According to dailymail.co.uk, the team that made the documentary says it didn’t display enough information on screen for the agenda geneticists to hold out that task.

Carsten Pusch, a geneticist at Germany’s University of Tubingen who was a part of the team that unraveled Tut’s DNA from samples taken from his mummy and mummies of his relations, said that iGENEA’s claims are “simply impossible.”

Mummies Had Blond or Red Hair

Some mummies were said to possess been found with blond, red, or straight hair. That was thought to be a sign that the Egyptians weren’t Black Africans.

Two British anthropologists, Don Brothwell and Richard Spearman have found evidence of cortex keratin oxidation in ancient Egyptian hair. They held that the mummification process was responsible due to the active alkaline substance used. This resulted in the yellowing and browning of hair also because of the straightening effect.

Art and Sculptures Prove Ancient Egyptians weren’t Black.

Manu Ampim, a professor at Merritt College specializing in African and African-American history and culture, claims within the book “Modern Fraud: the cast Ancient Egyptian Statues of Ra-Hotep and Nofret” that a lot of ancient Egyptian statues and artworks are modern frauds that are explicitly created to cover the “fact” that the traditional Egyptians were Black, while authentic artworks that demonstrate Black characteristics are systematically defaced or maybe “modified.”

 

Egyptians Were Racist Against Nubians in Antiquity

Some modern-day Eurocentric scholars have argued that the traditional Egyptians hated and enslaved the Nubians because they were Black. They often use the Egyptian art depicting wars between ancient Egyptians and Nubians as evidence.



However, within the 18th century, French historian Count Volney wrote that “the ancient Egyptians were true negroes of an equivalent type as all native-born Africans.” Just a couple of years later, French scholar Jean-Jacques Champollion-Figeac stated in “Egypte Ancienne,” published in 1839, that the Egyptians and Nubians are represented within the same manner in tomb paintings and reliefs.

 

Race and complexion Were Accurate in Drawings.

Some argue that the Egyptians drew themselves during a reddish color to separate themselves from the Black-colored people in their art.

University of Chicago scholars assert that Nubians are generally depicted with black paint. Still, the skin pigment utilized in Egyptian paintings to ask Nubians also can range “from red to brown to black.”

Historian Cheikh Anta Diop accused mainstream Egyptologists of his day of using the narrowest possible definition of “Blacks” to differentiate various African groups like Egyptians into an EU or Caucasoid racial zone.

 

Africans Were Backwards

Some say that Egyptians couldn’t are Black Africans because they were “too backwards” to make such a civilization. But consistent with historian Dr. John Henrik Clarke, when the first Europeans first met Africans at the crossroads of history, it had been a respectful meeting and therefore the Africans weren’t slaves. Their nations were old before Europe was born. during this period of history, what was to be later referred to as “Africa” was an unknown place to the people that would someday be called “Europeans.”

Hamitic Theory: Negroids Are Inferior

According to the idea, the Hamitic race (classified by European authors as a sub-group of the Caucasian race), was superior to and more advanced than the Negroid.

W. E. B. Du Bois wrote that “the term Hamite under which many Negroes are characteristically transferred to the White race by some eager scientists” was a tool to make “false writing on Africa.”
