>>658108 Report and ignore, apparently it is really hard for anons to cram this into their heads. Get this: mods actually DELETE shitposts you report, if you don't report they won't do it. I can personally attest this, quality on /his/ was soaring for me as long as I reported terrible posts, sadly everyone likes to shitpost so it can be an uphill battle at times.
How common is the "Egyptians were white" trope, really? White as in Nordic european, not tanned semitic. I don't think I've ever seen any media that didn't depict the common Egyptian as "ethnic", although white actors are of course often used to play middle-eastern roles when it come to film.
I'm open to the possibility that I'm wrong, but it seems as though Egyptian = middle eastern/light skinned African appearance has been commonly accepted for a long time.
>>659931 The Greeks thought so too. Herodotus believed, even when very good evidence to the contrary was put before him, that the greek gods originated from Egypt. Because egypt was superior in age and artistic expression and culture, he thought there was no way that the Greeks could have thought of something original.
>>658025 Napoleon was short American slavery, not a lie but blown out of proportion, both blacks and arabs had more slaves historically. That christianity suppressed science and technology, and did not contribute to it On a personal level, my teachers often said that the muslims were englightened people that we massacred violently through the crusades and that we should feel shame about them.
>>659199 >Nordic european, not tanned semitic saying they were literally nordic is a meme, but semites? they were probably "aryan" (not in the hitler le blond eyed germanics sense) weren't they? some kind of invader group? i'm not opposed to them being semites or something. it's just that's how i've understood it.
Superior art? See Greek statues. See Egyptian high relief carving.
This is no contest motherfucker.
Something older doesn't make it superior. If it LASTS it is superior. It seems to me we use consistently rule of thirds and perception as a basis for artistic standard today which came from GREEK study. Not Egyptian. The Egyptian were a race of death fearing/worshiping nuts that didn't know a hell of a lot past where their little cities where comparitive to the blanket of stars above them.
Humans constantly romantisise their past. You probably have fleeting moments of nostalgia that make you feel like your childhood was amazing, but during the actual moments of the passing childhood it was probably just mediocre bullshit, just like today.
>>659199 They were semitic people all along. I personally doubt Arab conquest has shifted the genetic composition so much so you can be fairly certain that modern Egyptians look more or less the same as ancient ones, with small differences here and there.
>>658025 Why are blacks so desperate to claim Egyptian cutlure as their own heritage? Its constantly demonized by Jews and christians and its iconography gets bastardised as masonic/satan worshipping diagrammatics.
Black and white aren't the only races, and are themselves (all things considered) fairly new races in human history, because ethnicity is fluid. The Egyptians weren't black or white or Arab; they were, and are, Egyptian. You can google up a picture of people in Egypt right now. What you see is what you get.
Of course there were one or two ruling dynasties of Greek and Nubian descent, and there were more immigrants as time went on because Egypt was successful, but they always remained the minority. Egyptians are Egyptian, and any contemporary movement to claim their success in the name of Aryan nationalism or WE WUZ KANGS SJWism is false.
>>663764 Blacks of African American (and therefore West African coastal) descent and Germans are more likely to be insecure about their own history because their ancestors were destructive hunter gatherer tribes while other civilizations were flourishing, so they try to compensate by claiming ancestry from succesful cultures. The fact that they're so fixated in looking to the past for glory rather than the future should tell you all you need to know.
>>663791 >Blacks of African American (and therefore West African coastal) descent and Germans are more likely to be insecure about their own history because their ancestors were destructive hunter gatherer tribes while other civilizations were flourishing, so they try to compensate by claiming ancestry from succesful cultures. This x10.
It doesn't matter how much armor piercing high explosive cock you can take to the belt if the enemy can just spam planes at you from a hundred miles away until you die. Battleships weren't retrofitted to be covered in AA guns because they were undeadable.
Why does this upset /his/ so much? It's a meme just like the finno-korean hyper war, stirnerposting, analytic v continental philosophy, "could germany/japan have won ww2", "vikings", and all the other threads on the merry-go-round of /his/
>>663791 You seem to be equivocating a bit. You first use "race" in the socially constructed sense by saying >Black and white aren't the only races, and are themselves (all things considered) fairly new races in human history, because ethnicity is fluid
but then go on to say >You can google up a picture of people in Egypt right now. What you see is what you get.
If I look at a picture of people in Egypt, they seem to look more like the people in the rest of North Africa and West Eurasia than anywhere else - and guess what? They also cluster genetically with those populations rather than sub-Saharan Africans (despite some admixture) or East Asians.
So make up your mind about whether you're using race to denote social or biological race.
