Greetings, Sistah Kola,
Thanks so much for sharing the photos and your story of one of my beloved places in the world. I have made several trips to Kemet (Egypt) and in 2000, assisted in spreading our motherís ashes along the Banks of the Nile in Aswan. Prior to my ever going to the Motherland, I knew that most of its inhabitants had to be of Negroid decent as the blazing son would have killed a many of folks.
One thing that I found very depressing and disgusting was the exploitation of small children for labor in the carpet factories and how they roamed the streets with no shoes. Another dishearten symbol was seeing United Arab Emirates on just about everything. I think it is incumbent on all Afrikans (Afrikan-Americans, Afrikan-Brazilians, etc.) across the world to visit Kemet and have a first hand account of this extraordinary place. Start at Philadelphia and go all the way down (up) to Abu Cenbal or Aswan.
Again, thanks for enlightening us. All of us donít despise you, sistah!
