Egyptian Mummies with Blond, Brown and Red hair

It seems like nothing sparks blacks like Ancient Egyptians. They seem much more agitated over Egypt than questions such as IQ, crime and affirmative action. So here’s some more:

- Queen Hetop-Heres II, of the Fourth Dynasty, the daughter of Cheops, the builder of the great pyramid had reddish blond hair. Her hair is painted a bright yellow stippled with little red horizontal lines, and her skin is white. (‘The Races of Europe’, Carleton Stevens Coon, New York City, Macmillan. 1939, p.98)

- Egyptian Female Pharaoh, Queen Hatshepsut, wife of Pharaoh Thutmosis II. She ruled Egypt after Thutmosis’ death in 1520 BC. Her hair was long and blond (see her mummy below).

- Biblical Joseph was Egyptian Prime Minister Yuya. His mummy was recovered and he had light, blond hair.

Below is a picture of his mummy:

- Queen Tiy (Taia,Tyre) was the daughter of Yuya. She was the mother of Akhenaten and the great grandmother of Tutankhamen.. She’s the most famous of Egypt’s queens in 18th Dynasty Egypt. This statue was found in the Temple of Hathor near the turquoise mines. Equally blond and Caucasian as you can see.

- Ramses II: Professor P. F. Ceccaldi, a famed Egyptologist, studied his mummy. Microscopic examinations showed that the hair roots contained natural red pigments, and that therefore, during his younger days, Ramesses II had been a red head. With age, his hair got even lighter. He also had wavy hair common among whites.

- Queen Hatshetrut had wavy, red hair. Here’s her picture:

The Afrocentrists have had to come with outlandish claims to explain the similarities between Egyptian and Caucasian hair.

From dye's, to hair strainghteners etc.

But it is pure stupidity mixed in with wishful thinking, as the very texture of the hair of black and whites are different from a Genetic viewpoint.

Genetic tests were done on Egyptian hair and it was found that it is Caucasian.

Think Greg will try and convince us those were dreadlocks?

Dachshund said...

Negroes only straighten their hair to look more like whites. Dreadlocks are just another way of getting rid of the ghastly frizz look. Now if those Egyptians were really "uber" negroes, why would they want to emulate a lower racial group?

Greg will tell you the Egyptians actually shaved their heads - true, but not in all dynasties - and wore wigs. Those must have been damn good wigs to last such a long time. Wigs that actually grew right into the scalp, wow!

You really should stop confusing the bantu and their brown collar workers with fact.

All Gauls and Celts originally lived in North Africa. Only the Germanic Peoples came from just south of the Caucasus.

Any anthropologist who isn't paid by the New World Order organisations knows this... for those who don't, well let's just say a comfy life now makes one forget the truth!

Your friendly (honest) anthropologist!

PS. trying to set up tours to visit Berber (Celts left in North Africa after the Arab invasions) settlements in Tunisia

Then I await my cheque from the NWO!

seriously, I don't know what point you are making about the Germanics, Gauls and Celts - don't they all have the same origin?
If not, pls explain. thanks

I am actually not a Egyptologist and believe it or nor I do not care that much whether Egyptians were "black" or "white." Look at the pictures of the mummies again, they deny your main point, all with the possible exception of one. They look "Negro" not "Caucasian" to me. It seems to me some here probably have an agenda of denying any historical accomplishment to blacks.

There are no historical accomplishments of blacks to deny.I'll say it again,being primitive is nothing to be shamed about but fabricating history is!

If the ancient Egyptians were black, then I'm a Martian with four heads.

i just researched the real mummies of all these individuals & the ones here are all fake & look nothing like the originals. The originals have no hair.this is pathetic

Viking said...

all the ancient egyption animals with thier hieroglphic representation is of african animals, got from deeper within africa where the ancient egyptions traded and believed that they came from. they evan said their chief god amun came from the south(kush) which mean black in hebrew.
ancient egypt was called khamet (the black land ) and themselves khamau (black people/devine beings)
they wore "bling bling' and beads. everyone did.
if we see a white person doing all this today we will say to them stop being black. if we see a semitic person today doing all these they would probebly be killed by there own people for behaving out of culture. infact i have never seen a jew or an arab(semite) male with thier ear peirced like most ancient egyption men did.
come on, those mummies are white. look again. i am black, ive studied european history very well and i have notice certin traits like homosexuality in all european cultures of history. there is no word for gay or lsebian in the ancient khametic lanuage, just like 99 percent of african lanuages of today. the only gay act in ancient egypt was done by the god seth(the representation of the devil). gay was regarded as an evil act something againest divine order in ancient egypt. in europe namely greece and rome homosexuality was concidered a noble act to practise that all men were expected to take part in. in arabia the word lut discribes the act which they have practised from the start.
black people have all sorts of hair, you see them today with thier straighten hair. some of us naturally have strighten hair. i can send you a pic of my hair to prove to you that your just ignorant and truely cant except facts. black people had a history before slavery. and there was no european culture worth mentioning before greece. just learn to read heiroglphs, you will see african words like
the god montu, anpu, sebek, khonsu, mut, all these words can be found in african lanuages today with the same meanings. ancient egyption is not an indo european lanuage, i dont evan know why you will claim it as a white civilisation just because the last dynesty were white. ptolomy. thats like me taking selected pictures (million is possible) of only black people and saying we have always ruled englan. but once people begin to research the facts, it will be easy to see that england ws never black. you see people dont just end up with tropical limb proportions over night. the ancient egyptions had tropical limbs, tropical as in from within africa. if they had come in to the land from out of africa, where did they get the black limbs from.

if you are truthfull about the ancient egyptions were white and blond put my bogs up and let the readers decide. you see, there is no depiction of green or evan blue eyes in those ancient pictures/sculptures.
is it a coincidence that they had blond or red hair but no blue or green eyes. what is the cjance of that, since the civilisation laste thousands of year. evan in one generation to see blond heads and red heads with only black or brown eyes is wiered. since berebers from germany who have lived in north africa for 500 years have blue/ green eyes. why is this not true for the ancient egyptions. oh yea they did use hena to dye hair red. and in case you dont know so did they use yellow and evan blue, like the west africans and carribian women do today.

its funny how halve the ancient egyptions walked around naked, not just all children but also the kings childrens up to the age of 13-15. fisher men, labourers and women dancers walked around completely naked too. it was excepted and not something sexual like in europe and arabia today.
all ancients wore wigs, some wore braided wigs, its funny how it would look wired if whites or semetic men especially wore braids today but we are expected to believe this is how they lived in the same hot sun thousand os years ago. we will say to them stop being black if they did that.
ancesteral worship and regeneration is an african concept in itself, the ancient egyption could not life without it..

What a hippocrite! "I don't care what race.........THEY ARE BLACK! EXCEPT ONE. LOL

Newark Guy said...

There are murals where Egyptians portrayed themselves enslaving true Blacks(Nubians) . There are even Murals comparing the many "races" of the region. BTW Egiptian Art portrayed "pure Sub Saharan Blacks as the UGLIEST,always blackest, huge lipped and always in bondage, or being trampled by pharoah's chariot! The pharoah's own slippers had Nubians painted on them so everytime the Pharoah walked, he stomped the blacks! Ancient Egyptians may have been the "negro Nordics"(the lightest skinned most advanced blacks) so far advanced past the congoid tribes, that they saw the threat from the "primitive" Nubians. In any case, the evolution went backwards, the Nubians eventually swamped the Egyptians.Dysgenics, and degerate erosion of the more evolved Egyptian IQ/DNA in favor of the primitive Sub saharan, led to the inability of the "New Egyptians "to maintain the civilization they inherited. This made it easy for the Arab invasions to come.
