The Ethnicity of the Egyptians is the key to understanding the Blackness of the Hebrews and surrounding nations.
The genealogical chart in Genesis 10 lists Ham/Khem as the father of Africans and from Africans came Egypt, Babylon, Persia, Kushites/Nubians. The proper word Khem/Kam means Black. These intermarried with the Hebrews and so produce the Hebrew nation of Israel.
That is the Jewish line itself was that of Black/African Canaanite woman named Tamar (Genesis 38:1-5),
The Canaanites were descendants of Ham/Khem (Gen. 10:6). Again, the word means Black.
Abraham beget the Arab line through an Egyptian woman Hagar. She then picked a Egyptian wife for her son Ishmael who would father the original Black/African Arabs (Genesis 16; 21:21). The original arabs were Black/African.
The Egyptians are identified in the Bible as Hamites/Khemites (Psalm 106:21-22; 78:51; 105:27).
Scripture states, "Is rael sojourned in Egypt the land of HAM/KHEM' Psalm 78:51.
The establishment of the Hebrew nation is told in the Pentateuch or first five books of the Bible also called the Torah. Throughout the first five books we see Hebrews intermarrying with Black/African Egyptians, Canaanites, Kushites all listed under descendants of HAM/KHEM (Genesis 10:6).
The Israelites went down into Black/Egypt a total of 70 and came out a MIXED MULTITUDE OF OVER 600.000 (Ex. 1:5; 12:37-38).
That mixed multitude consisted of marrying the Black/Egyptians and other Hamite/Khemite blacks that dwelt amidst them. Leviticus verifies that Black/Egyptians were they who the Hebrews married in that we have a black Hebrew woman married to a Egyptian man (Leviticus 24:10).
So verifying that the Hebrews were African/Kushite in stock, color, appearance.
The Hebrews were commanded 'not to abhor the Black/Egyptians' and of course Moses was trained in the wisdom of the Egyptians ( Deut. 23:7; Acts 7:22).
Also, you have Joseph marrying the High an Egyptian woman by the name of Zaphenath-paneah. Her father was high priest of the Egyptian city On. His name was Poti-phera (Gen. 41:45).
These had 2 sons, Ephraim and Mannasah (Gen. 41:50-52). These became two tribes of Israel. So again showing Black/African Hamite/Khemite stock in color and appearance.
Okay, this leads to the crucial key to the identity of the BLACK HEBREWS. Joseph is the KEY FACTOR. Joseph, is sold out by his brothers and through a series of events becomes governer over Egypt (Genesis 41). His brothers come to by grain and they do not recognize their brother and describe him as a BLACK/AFRICAN EGYPTIAN by reason of their inability to recognize him as their brother. Now, if they were any other color but BLACK/AFRICAN Joseph would have stood out like a beacon light. Indeed, it is the Bible that tells us that his brothers had to examine him closely to see that he was not a BLACK /AFRICAN EGYPTAIN but a BLACK/AFRICAN HEBREW (Gensis 45:1-7).
As well, Moses was described by the intelligent daughters of Jethro as a 'BLACK/EGYPTIAN (Ex. 2:19). The Midianites were also Ethiopians (Numbers 12:1). Zipporah the BLACK/ETHIOPIAN WOMAN had 2 sons by Moses Gershom and Eliezer (Ex. 2:21; 18:4). These were incorporated in the Levitical line and they were Black/AFrican Khemite/Semite which as shown one had to examine closely to know the difference (1 Chr. 23:15).
Now, the sons of Japheth of whom whites identify themselves as and the dictionary defines as rising up and establishing Greece, Rome, and part of Mede were scattered and besides that only 2 of the 7 sons had descendants, that totaled 7 (Gen. 10:2-5) History tells us these were separated from Ham and Shem and went to dwell in the Caucasas mountains. They were the original barbarian and savage, isolated and non-productive.
Whereas, as shown Ham and Shem were intermarrying and the Hamites were dominant above Shem and Japheth. The Hamites created and inhabited Egypt, Sumeria, Babylon, Persia, Nubia and a host of Canaanite lands (Genesis 10:5-20).
David married the Black/African Kushite woman Bath sheba. Bath Sheba means Daughter of Sheba. Sheba is listed under the Hamites/Khemites i(Genesis 10:7).
Oh, JOSHUA SON OF NUN was a descendant of EPHRAIM who was Joseph's son by his Black/African wife Asenath (2 Sam. 11:3-12:24). BATHSHEBA was the AFRICAN/KUSHITE MOTHER OF SOLOMON THE WISEST MAN TO EVER LIVE ( 2 Sam. 12:24). She also had a still born son of David.
Solomon married a Pharoah of his era's Black/AFrican Egyptian daughter and built her a grand palace (1 Ki. 3:1;7:8).
In fact, the Bible tells us that the Black/Israelites continue to marry Black/AFrican Phillistines, Egyptians, Ethiopians, Kushites, Nubians, all throughout their history (Neh. 4:14; Ezra 2:4-6; 13:23).
So we see, there is Biblical proof of the Black origin of the Hebrews/Israelite/Jews of the Bible.
The Black Jews of Southern Africa
Over 2,700 years ago, the Assyrians exiled the ten tribes of the Kingdom of Israel. "In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria captured Samaria and he carried them away to Assyria and placed them in Halah, and on the Habor, the river of Gozan, and in the cities of Medes." In the years 722-721 BC (over 2700 years ago), the Ten Tribes who comprised the northern Kingdom of Israel disappeared. Conquered by the Assyrian King Shalmaneser V, they were exiled to upper Mesopotamia and Medes, today modern Syria and Iraq. The Ten Tribes of Israel have never been seen since. Or have they?
Tudor Parfitt, the protagonist of the NOVA documentary "Lost Tribes of Israel," made a journey through southern Africa to study the unusual traditions of a black African tribe called the Lemba. This Bantu-speaking group claimed J ewish ancestry and observed many Semitic traditions such as kosher-like dietary restrictions and slaughter practices, male circumcision rites, strict rules against intermarriage, and Semitic-sounding clan names.
Once described as "a sort of British Indiana Jones," Parfitt spent many months with the Lemba, meeting their tribal and religious leaders and observing some of their most sacred rituals. He came to the conclusion that the origin of many of the Lemba traditions was indeed Semitic, not African. But whether these traditions came from Islamic or Jewish sources was impossible to discern from the historical and anthropological evidence available. It would take Y-chromosome studies to delve deeper into this question of origin.
A few years after his travels, Parfitt teamed up with a group from The Center for Genetic Anthropology at University College London to look for a genetic counterpart to the Lemba's oral tradition of Jewish descent. Using a relati vely new technique in genetic studies, the team identified a particular series of genetic markers on the Y chromosome of Lemba males. They then compared these markers to other groups with whom the Lemba might have shared a common ancestor long ago.
The team collected DNA samples from Bantu (African), Yemeni (Arab), and Sephardic Jews and Azhkenazi Jews (including Cohanim from both communities) to compare the amount of similarity that existed between each of these groups. As we've seen, the more similar the Y chromosome, the more closely related are some individuals in the different groups to a common paternal ancestor. As a consequence, one can establish links between populations.
In an interview with NOVA, team member Dr. David Goldstein commented on the team's findings: "The first striking thing about the Y chromosomes of the Lemba is that you find this particular chromosomal type (Cohen modal haplotype) that is characteristic of the Jewish priesthood in a frequency that is similar to what you see in major Jewish populations. Something just under one out of every 10 Lemba that we looked at had this particular Y chromosomal type that appears to be a signature of Jewish ancestry. Perhaps even more striking is the fact that this Cohen genetic signature is strongly associated with a particular clan in the Lemba. Most of the Cohen modal haplotypes that we observe are carried by individuals of the Buba clan which, in Lemba oral tradition, had a leadership role in bringing the Lemba out of Israel."
What this study shows is that the Lemba, and more specifically some members of the Buba sub-clan, seem to have an ancestral connection to Judaic populations. Like an oral history, but written in the letters of their DNA, the Lemba Y chromosome hands from father to son a living record of the past.
Return To Glory: The Powerful Stirring of the Black Man
In many sectors there seems to be some controversy about the racial make-up of the Egyptian people, i.e. whether they were White or Black. This is a simplistic approach to a much more complicated set of circumstances since Egypt's strategic location brought people in from the south with Nubian and equatorial African influence and from the northern coast of Africa and the Middle East with Afro-Mediterranean and Semitic influences. The Biblical record places Egypt among the "Black" countries. Melanin dosage tests of mummified remains (controversial due to damage caused by the embalming process) seem to indicate a level of melanocytes consistent with a people of a semi tropical to temperate climate zone.
Egypt continues to dominate the focus of our African oriented studies. These studies have clearly demonstrated that not only were early Egypt's origins African, but that through the whole of Egypt's Dynastic Era (the age of the Pharaohs), and during all of her many periods of national splendor, men and women with black skin complexions, broad noses, full lips, and tightly curled hair, were dominant in both the general population and governing elite.
In the intense and unrelenting struggle to establish scientifically the African foundations of Egyptian civilization, the late Senegalese scholar Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop remains a most fierce and ardent champion. Dr. Diop (1923-1986) was without a doubt one of the world's leading Egyptologist and held the position of Director of the Radiocarbon Laboratory at the Fundamental Institute of Black Africa in Dakar, Senegal. In stating the importance of the work, Diop noted emphatically and early on that, "The history of Black Africa will remain suspended in air and cannot be written correctly until African historians dare to c onnect it with the history of Egypt."
The solid range of methodologies employed by Dr. Diop in the course of his extensive Afro-Egyptian labors included: examinations of the epidermis of the mummies of Egyptian kings for verification of their melanin content; precise osteological measurements and meticulous studies in the various relevant areas of anatomy and physical anthropology; careful examinations and comparisons of modern Upper Egyptian and West African blood-types; detailed Afro-Egyptian linguistic studies and the corroboration of distinct Afro-Egyptian cultural traits; documents of racial designations employed by the early Africans themselves; Biblical testimonies and references that address the ancient Egyptian's ethnicity, race and culture; and the writings of early Greek and Roman travelers and scholars describing the physical characteristics of the ancient Egyptians.
The original Egyptians were unmixed pure black folks. When they were at the pinnacle of their glory they were not a mixed group by any means. During the middle dynasties especially (and later) when people migrated to this great land there was some intermarrying. This is natural and doesn't need to be debated. It was even done within royalty lines at times to solidify alliances, which was a common practice between powers during that period of history. Chancellor Williams refers to this phenomenon in his book "The Destruction of Black Civilization." And frankly, he theorizes that this mixing was part of the reason for the fall of Black Civilization. Nevertheless, there was never so much of this that at any time the ancient Egyptians could ever be classified as other than a black people.
It's reasonable to say that Egypt was a gateway for the meeting and interchange of goods, ideas, and people; and that the Egyptians were themselves a unique __expression of human strength, beauty, intelligence and diversification. Ancient Egypt was an African civilization. It is also interesting to note that the Biblical record states "Israel also came into Egypt...the land of Ham." (Psalm 105: 23).
Plus we need to be reminded that Egypt is in Africa (not the Middle East) and that all of the Pharaohs (up to and including the 25th Dynasty) would have been required to "sit at the back of a bus" in the 1940s in Montgomery Alabama. Let's allow the pictures to speak for themselves...Ready?
At any rate, here is what the Greeks, who whites herald as 'the founders of civilization' had to say about their EYE-WITNESS account of who the Black/African Egyptians. Remember the Greeks were white racists but did not have the gall of Satan to the extreme that their white caucasoid descendants the world over would take up, in that though the Greeks were prejudice bigots, in their prejudice they blatantly and as you will see, sometimes inadvertently admit the BLACK/AFRICAN EGYPTIAN TRUTH.
In fact, they say the same thing about the Black/African Hebrews who could not be told apart from any Black/AFrican on the planet. Note:In antiquity they were a particularly 'dark-black, blue black' of which they were 'vain about.' They felt superior to lighter skinned people and likened their blackness to holiness.
a) Herodotus white's hierarchies give him credit for being 'their' father of history (-480 to 425) wrote with regard to the Colchians:
25. In the fifth century before our era, at a time when Herodotus visited Egypt, a black-skinned people, the Colchians, were still living in Colchis on the Armenian shore of the Black Sea, east of the ancient port of Trebizond, surrounded by white skin nations.
The scholars of antiquity wondered about this people's origin and Herodotus in 'Euterpe' , the second book of his history on Egypt, tries to prove that the Colchians were Egyptians, whence the arguments we quote. Herodotus, on the strength of commemorative stelae, erected by Sesotris in conquered countries, assert that this monarch has got as far as Thrace and Sethyia, where stelae would seem to have been still standing in his day (Book II, 103).
"It is in fact manifest that the Colchidians are Egyptian by race....several Egyptians told me that in their opinion the Colchidians were descended from soldiers of Sesostris. I had conjectured as much myself from two pointers, firstly becuase they have black skins and kinky hair (to tell the truth this proves nothing for other peoples have them too) and secondly and more reliably for the reason alone among mankind the Egyptians and the Ethiopians have practiced circumcision since time immemorial. The Phoenicians and Syrians of Palestine admit that they learnt the practice from the Egyptians while the Syrians in the river Thermodon and Pathenios region and their neighbours the Macrons say they learnt it recently from the Colchidians. These are the only races which practise circumcision and it is observable that they do it in the same way as the Egyptians. As between the Egyptians themselves and the Ethiopians I could not say which taught the oth er the practice for among them it is quite clearly a custom of antiquity. As to the custom having been learnt through their Egyptian connections, a further strong proof to my mind is that all Phoenicians trading to Greece cease to treat the pudenda after the Egyptian manner and do not subject their offspring to circumcision."
26- Herodotus, Book II, 104. As with many peoples in black Africa, Egyptian women underwent excision of the clitoris: cf. Strabo, Geography, Book XVII, Ch. I.
Herodotus reverts several times to the negroid character of the Egyptians and each time uses it as a fact of observation to argue more or less complex theses. Thus to prove that the Greek oracle at Dodona in Epirus was of Egyptian origin, one of his aruments is the following : "...and when they add that the dove was black they give us to understand that the woman was Egypian." The doves in queston- actually there were two according to the text-symbolize two Egyptian women who are said to have been carried off from the Egyptian Thebes to found the oracles in Greece at Dodona and in Libya (Oasis of Jupiter Amon) respectively. Herodotus did not share the opinion of Anaxagoras that the melting of the snow on the mountains of Ethiopia was the source of the Nile floods. He relied on the fact that it neither rains nor snows in Ethiopia 'and the heat there turns men black'.
27- Herodotus, Book II, 57.
28- Seneca, Questions of Nature. IV, 17/
29- Herodotus, Book II, 22.
b) Aristotle, -389 to -332, scientist philosopher and tutor of Alexander the Great.
In one of his minor works, Aristotle attempts, with unexpected naivete', to establish a cor relation between the physical and moral natures of living beings and leaves us evidence on the Egyptian-Ethiopian race which confirms what Herodotus says. According to him, 'Those who are too black are cowards, like for instance, the Egyptians and Ethiopians. But those who are excessively white are also cowards as we can see from the example of women, the complexion of courage is between the two.'
30-Aristotle, Physiognomy 6
c) Lucian Greek writer, +125 (?) to +190.
The evidence of Lucian is as explicit as that of the two previous writers. He introduces two Greeks, Lycinius and Timolaus, who start a conversation.
31-Lucian, Navigations, paras 2-3
Lycinus (describing a young Egyptian): 'This boy is not merely black; he has thick lips and his legs are too thin. . .his hair worn in a plait behind shows that he is not freeborn.'
Timolaus: 'But that is a sign of really distinguished birth in Egypt, Lycinus. All freeborn children plait their hair until they reach manhood. It is the exact opposite of the custom of our ancestors who thought it seemly for old men to secure their hair with a gold brooch to keep it in place.'
d) Appollodorus, first century before our era, Greek philospher. 'Aegyptos conquered the country of the black-footed ones and
called it Egypt after himself.'
32-Appollodorus, Book II, 'The Family of Imachus' paras 3 and 4.
e) Aeschylus, - 525 (?) to - 456, tragic poet and creator of Greek tragedy. In the Suppliants, Danoas, fleeing with his daughters, the Danaids, and pursued by his brother Aegyptos with his sons, the Aegyptiads, who seek to wed their cousins by force, climbs a hillock, looks out to sea and describes the Aegyptiads at the oa rs afar off in these terms: "I can see the crew with their black limbs and white tunics."
A similar description of the Egyptian type of man recurs a few lines later in verse 745.
33-Aeschylus, The Suppliants, vv. 719-20. See also v. 745.
f) Achilles Tatius of Alexandria. He compares the herdsmen of the Delta to the Ethiopians and explains that they are blackish, like half-castes.
g) Strabo, -58 to about +25.
Strabo visited Egypt and almost all the countries of the Roman empire. He concurs in the theory that the Egyptians and the Colchoi are of the same race but holds that the migrations to Ethiopia and Colchoi had been from Egypt only.
"Egyptians settled in Ethiopia and in Colchoi. There is no doubt whatever as to Strabo's notion of the Egyptians' race for he seeks elsewhere to explain why the Egyptians are darker than the Hindus, a circumstance which would permit the refutation, if needed, of any attempt at confusing 'the Hindu and Egyptian races'.
34-Strabo, Geography, Book I, ch. 3, para 10.
h) Diodorus of Silicy, about -63 to +14, Greek historian and contemporary of Caesar Augustus.
According to Diodorus it was probably Ethiopia which colonized Egypt (in the Athenian sense of the term, signifying that, with overpopulation, a proportion of the people emigrate to new territory).
36-"Diodorus, University History, Book III. The antiquity of the Ethiopian civilization is attested by the most ancient and most venerable Greek writer, Homer in both the Iliad and the Odyssey: "Jupiter followed today by all the gods receives the sacrifices of the Ethiopians (Illiad, I, 422).
'Yesterday to visit holy Ethiopia Jupite r betook himself to the ocean shore'" (Iliad, I, 423).
The Ethiopians say that the Egyptians are one of their colonies, which was led into Egypt by Osiris. They claim that at the beginning of the world Egypt was simply a sea but that the Nile, carrying down vast quantities of loam from Ethiopia in its flood waters, finally filled it in and made it part of the continent. . .They added that the Egyptians have received from them, as from authors and their ancestors, the great part of their laws.'
i) Doigenes Laertius.
He wrote the following about Zeno, founder of the Stoic School (-333 to -261): 'Zeno son of Mnaseas or Demeas was a native of Citium in Cyprus, A Greek city which has taken in some Phoenician colonists.' In his Lives, Timotheus of Athens describes Zeno as having a twisted neck. Apollonius of Tyre says of him that he was gaunt, very tall and black, hence the fact that, ac cording to Chrysippus in the First Book of his Proverbs certain people called him an Egyptian vine-shoot.
37-Diogenes Laertius, Book VII, i.
j) Ammianus Marcellinus, about +33 to +100, Latin historian and friend of the Emperor Julian.
With him we reach the sunset of the Roman Empire and the end of classical antiquity. There are about nine centuries between the birth of Aeschylus and Herodotus and the dath of Ammianus Marcellinus, nine centuries during which the Egyptians, amid a sea of white races, steadily crossbred. It can be said without exaggeration that in Egypt one household in ten included a white Asiatic or Indo-European slave.
38-The Egyptian notables liked to have a Syrians or Cretan female slave in their harems.
It is remarkable that, despite it s intensity, all this crossbreeding should not ahve succeeded in upsetting the racial constants. Indeed Ammianus Marcellinus writes: ". . . the men of Egypt are mostly brown or black with a skinny and dessicated look".
39-Ammianus Maarcellinus, Book XXII, para 16 (23).
He also confirms the evidence already cited about the Colchoi: "Beyond these lands are the heartlands of the Camaritae and the Phasis with its swifter stream borders the country of the Colchoi, an ancient race of Egyptian origin.'
40-Pirate gangs who worked from small ships called Camare.
41-Ammianus Marcellinus, Book XXII, para. 8 (24).
This cursory review of the evidence of the ancient Graeco-Latin writers on the Egyptians' race shows that the extent of agreement between them is impressive and is an objective fact difficult to minimize or conceal, the two alter natives between which present-day Egyptology constantly oscillates.
An exception is the evidence of an honest savant, Voney, who travelled in Egypt between +1783 and +1785, i.e. at the peak period of negro slavery, and made the following observation on the true Egyptian race, the same which produced the Pharaohs, namely, the Copts:
"All of them are puffy-faced, heavy-eyed and thick-lipped, in a word, real mulatto faces. I was tempted to attribute this to the climate until, on visiting the Sphinx, the look ofit gave me the clue to the enigma. Beholding that head characteristically Negro in all its features, I recalled the well-known passage of Herodotus which reads: 'For my part I consider the Colchoi are a colny of the Egyptians because, like them, they are black-skinned and kinky-haired'. In other words the ancient Egyptians were true Negroes of the same stock as all autochtonous peoples of Africa and from that datum one sees how their race, after some centuries of mixing with the blood of Romans and Greeks, must have lost the full blackness of its original colour but retained the impress of its original mould. It is even possible t apply this observation very widely and posit in principle that physiognomy is a kind of record usuable in many cases for disputing or elucida ting the evidence of history on the origins of the peoples. . .
After illustrating this proposition citing the case of the Normans, who 900 years after the conquest of Normandy still look like Danes, Volney adds:
"but reverting to Egypt, its contributions to history afford many subjects for philosphic reflection . What a subject for mediation is the present-day barbarity and ignorance of the Copts who were considered born of the alliance of the deep genius of the Egyptians and the brilliance of the Greeks, that this race of blacks who nowadays are slaves and the objects of our scorn is the very one to which we owe our arts, our sciences and even the use of spo ken word and finally recollect that it is in the midst of the peoples claiming to be the greatest friends of liberty and humanity that the most barbarous of enslavements has been sanctioned and the question raised whether black men have brains of the same quality as those of white men!
42-M.C.F. Volney, Voyages en Syrie et en Egypte. Paris, 1787, Vol. I, pp. 74-7
To this testimony of Volney, Champollion-Figeac, brother of Champollion the Younger, was to reply in the following terms: 'The two physical traits of black skin and kinky hair are not enough to stamp a race as negro and Volney's conclusion as to the negro origin of th eancient population of Egypt is glaringly forced and inadmissible.'
43-J.J. Champollion-Figeac, 1839, pp. 26-7
Being bl ack from head to foot and having kinky hair is not enough to make a man a negor! This shows us the kind of specious argumentation to which Egyptology has had to resort since its birth as a science. Some scholars maintain that Volney was seeking to shift the discussion to a philosophic plane. But we have only to re-read Volney: he is simply drawing the inferences from crude material facts forcing themselves on his eyes and his conscience as proofs.

One thing that you wrote is totally incorrect.
There is no such thing as "original black ARABS" of Egypt.
The Arabs of present day Egypt are "invaders" from the Asiatic Arabic world. They first "married" into Egypt at the time when Kleopatra, by way of Ceasar, decreed that it was "illegal" for an Egyptian to marry another Egyptian. This is the called the law of intermarriage. Kleopatra forced her own people to marry Romans, and on the eastern flank, Arabs.
Most of these marriages were bewteen Roman MEN, Arab MEN and Egyptian females. This is how the foreign men took over political positions in the country...which led eventually to the conquering of Egypt by outside Arab forces.
Over a thousand years, the Arabs killed off or ran out the Nilotic indigenous people of Egypt.
The Arabs of today, are fiercely Muslim and are deeply ASHAMED of the "pagan" blacks that ruled ancient Egypt.
The original ancient blacks that ruled Egypt were nilotic peoples. They still exist in Southern Sudan, but in small numbers, and are not allowed to join the current Arab society because of religious doctrine, hence, they are forced into a nomadic existence.
Since I am black and come from Egypt, I couldn't let your post stand un-corrected.

The Egyptians were not NEGRO. They were NILOTIC.
The Nilotic is the parent of the negro. Why don't you look up the world nilotic to understand what that is.
Have you seen the boy who plays basketball for Duke University--Luol Deng? He is "nilotic". Have you seen Alek Wek? She is "nilotic".
The original people of the Nile River Valley were Nilotic. They are still the overwhelming majority of the population of the Nile.
Ethiopians, Black Sudanese, Kenyans, North Tanzanians are all "Nilotic" people. The Nilotic people gave birth to the Negro people.

More than half of the original Cushite people were JEWS. Cush begat Nubia. The ruins of the Cushite Empire are in Sudan. By looking up the ancient capitals--Meroe and Napata, you can learn a lot about the original Cushite people. They begat the "Falasha", the first Hebrew family.

The "Negro" is the largest race in Africa.
They begin in Chad, Tanzania and Congo...going south to South Africa and West to Mali and Senegal.
Negroes are lighter than Nilotics (Negroes range from black to chocolate to dark brown), but have a flat wide nose and larger lips. They are muscular bodied. Negro women are famous for their large buttocks.
Nilotics are extremely TALL, thin, usually charcoal to blue black colored. They have "thin" features and sometimes, the very darkest ones, have straight hair. The Somali and Ethiopian Nilotics have been intermixed with Arabs, Persians and Italians (mostly through chattel slavery), therefore, they are lighter than the original Nilotics.
The original Nilotics are still, however, the majority population-wise in Somalia, Sudan and Ethiopia.
The Arab invaders forced the East African Nilotics to learn a new slave language..."Swahili". And to adopt Islam as a religion.

There remain 2 million Black Jews in Sudan and another 2 million in Ethiopia...although Israel is currently transporting Ethiopian Jews to settlements in Israel to protect them from the Ahramic majority in Ethiopia.
Black people in Sudan and Ethiopia have very strong ties to the Jews of Israel, because of Kush and Nubia. All three share the ancient "Cushitic Hebrew" language.

Most Black people of Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya and Egypt DO NOT BELIEVE that "Ham" ever existed. He is an invention of the Europeans who "re-interpreted" the Bible.
"Ibrahim", however, was an African man. As was Ciisa (Jesus Christ).
The Bible is very young compared to the much older histories of the Cushites. The Egyptian Book of the Dead and countless African history books in Timbuktu. Even the Yoruban Totems are older than the bible.
It isn't sensible for take the European Bible as a reliable blue print for African history or even religious history. You must study EVERYTHING.
If you don't understand Pagan and Goddess worship in African societies FIRST, then you can gain no real history or understanding of Africa and the middle east.
The Torah, the Koran and the Bible do not BEGIN to tell the "accurate" truth about human beings as a history.

Well hello passion, I see you like me are 'full of words.' Listen, let me say the purpose of posting the 'Biblical' evidence was to show that these facts are right there is the Bible. Many blacks in the U.S embrace the Bible. I am well aware of 'nilotic,' versus 'kushite,' and the purpose of my post was to put the 'basic' facts of Africoidness (black/african stock, color, appearance) and not to give a breakdown as you have done.
As for the 'arabs' I'm well aware that those who now exist in the middle eastern regions descended in that region in 700 A.D.. I am also aware of their bigotry towards black skinned people. When I spoke of the arab root I spoke of it from the Biblical recorded origin of Black/Abraham. Again, 'Black or African' are all the let's say, 'generic' term for Africoid appearance.
So you see, in all these matters, I'm not incorrect you incorrectly misinterpreted what I was saying.
As for your overall views, about the breakdown of the may 'African sects' that part was fine.
