Why do so many people fall for the north africans were black maymay?
Even goes up to hollywood. Why not instead glorify actual African kingdoms like Mali and Axum. You could even go as far to say Yemen is black considering it has considerable mullato history.
Because Western normies don't actually want to learn about shit like the Epic of Sunjata because few have heard of it, yet alone know what it's about. They barely care about the Ancient Greeks, let don't know anything about Mali or Axum.
It's must easier just to make something that says "Caesar was black" than to actually try to do a foreign culture justice like that, and even if they do manage, the chance that it bombs goes up exponentially simply because of it's limited appeal.
No, there were not. The Nubians were not "Black", they are Nilo-Saharans. They look nothing like West Africans.
Do not shoehorn cultures into some reductionist color category based on the continent they live on.
They were originally Black by today definition
>More than 2,000 sequences were collected from the literature, and networks were constructed. The results show that the most ancient haplogroup is L3*, which would have been introduced to North Africa from eastern sub-Saharan populations around 20,000 years ago. Our results also point to a less ancient western sub-Saharan gene flow to Tunisia, including haplogroups L2a and L3b. This conclusion points to an ancient African gene flow to Tunisia before 20,000 BP. These findings parallel the more recent findings of both archaeology and linguistics on the prehistory of Africa. The present work suggests that sub-Saharan contributions to North Africa have experienced several complex population processes after the occupation of the region by anatomically modern humans. Our results reveal that Berber speakers have a foundational biogeographic root in Africa and that deep African lineages have continued to evolve in supra-Saharan Africa.
The light skin gene many display is the result of the Neolithic also, so they were black skinned like every other African as well.
Not just Yemen, all of Arabia Felix has cushitic influences look at Mehri people.
>Not just Yemen, all of Arabia Felix
Used Yemen to colloquially refer the southern portion of the Arabian peninsula.
Many of Muhammad's companions were referred to as full, halfies, or like Ali was referred too as 'very black skinned'.
Considering east africans fall under the semetic definition no one is arguing those peoples are mixed. That doesn't make those peoples black any more than it makes Spaniards arabs or Koreans Japanese.
The mixing in Arabia Felix is ancient, over ten thousand years and is the expansion of Nilo Saharans and Cushitics into the region bring camels and donkeys among other things.
These are the peoples that were around before the Semitic expansion, as further evidence of that Cushitic influence Modern Arabian languages all have a base of Cushitic and are not the descendants of Old Arabian languages.
Secondly I say this as an Ethiopian, we are not Semitic. We speak languages derived from Arabia Felix through many thousands of years of back and forth migration with admixture of Ethio-Somali and Arab on both sides though it's not nearly as much as 4chan users claim typically.
This so much. These "egyptians waz black lmao" discussions usually come from amerifags; In Murrka it just so happens that race relations are as bad as bad can be (fifty years ago there was literally apartheid). Burguers are so retarded they literally have a different category for white called "hispanic" which encompasses white people but also amerindians. To amerilards, Obama is the same race as Usain Boldt
1. Black actors are plentiful compared to Arab/North african actors
2. Its often seen as beneficial to shoehorn black characters into any production
3. Many mainstream viewers think that Africa=black
