There is widespread confusion in the world today concerning the racial character of the ancient Egyptians and other Hamites. Largely this is due to the rise of Negrocentric revisionism in recent decades as African Americans desperately seek a cultural identity worthy of pride. There is much to be said of this topic, and interested readers might care to view the following writings concerning Negrocentric views of the Bible and ancient Egypt.
This album hosts a collection of ancient Egyptian art which depicts the ancient Egyptians. Clearly the Egypt of Mizraim was of Caucasoid stock, generally of the Mediterranean variety. This is affirmed by genetic evidence which shows that the ancient Egyptians were most closely related to ancient Near Eastern populations.
It has been proven by archaeogenetics that the ancient Egyptians had less sub-Saharan admixture than even Egypt’s modern Caucasoid inhabitants which still have fairly little. Most of this admixture was introduced after the Islamic era though some undoubtedly occured in more ancient times.
It can be demonstrated that the Biblical Caphtorim and Philistines (descendants of Mizraim, the Egyptian patriarch) are one and the same people as the Minoans of Crete. Demonstrably these people were Caucasoid Mediterranean stock very similar to their southerly Egyptian cousins.
Genetic samples extracted from Philistine remains at Ashkelon have now proven that the Philistines indeed came to Canaan from Southern Europe. Many modern Greeks have a high degree of genetic continuity with the ancient Cretans.
The Mauretanians and Numidians of antiquity were Berbers, descendants of Put, son of Ham, and the statuary of these tribes clearly depicts them as racially Europoid. The faces of famous Berbers from antiquity might easily pass as Southern or Western European.
The Cushitic Sabeans were well known for their sculptures, particularly in alabaster, many of which survive to this day. These Sabean alabaster figures display distinctive Caucasoid features such as narrow high-rooted noses, orthognathism and long and narrow faces and display none of the features which distinguish the Congoid race. These ancient Sabeans are exemplary representations of the stock of Cush where it was not exposed to non-Adamic Niger-Congo and Nilo-Saharan admixture.
