Nice pictures. Everyone knows Egypt is Black. However, maybe they call themselves other things (i.e. Arab, etc.) as a cultural reference? Isn't the term "Black" an American construct? Correct me if I am wrong. Also, some reading may be familiar with the term "gyp" - referring to some one that has cheated you. I heard that this comes from the word "gypsy" and "Egypt" and was originated as a racist terminology for people of darker skins that were nomads or travellers. Any insight?
I have another questions - what is the meaning of "nilotic"? I have never heard that term. And what is the difference between nilotic and negroid?
