Is it just me or do "certain people" just hold complete disrespect and utter content for anything of African origin? I say that it's all a part of a bigger deception. Look at this:
How did we get from Imhotep the Multi-Genius architect of the step pyramid a master of calculus at age 3...

to Imhotep the demonic villian of the world? Little children are afraid of their ancestory due to this poison. People are afraid to go to their sacred Mother Land because flesh eating beetles are going to devour them up.

Is it just me or is this a classic case of racism (WWS)?

Your comments please.

It is classic racism.

it is possible that it is accidental
but
that dont mean that it dont have damaging effects



jaws made people unrealistically afraid of sharks
indiana jones made people unrealistically afraid of snakes
twister made people unrealistically afraid of tornadoes

Right.

What, you mean that these depictions are all created and projected in good faith and that they inflict no harm?

I feel that these movies and stoies are disrespectful because of the way they implant negative images of great and powerful ancestors to our youth.

True the actors and all may be innocent and just trying to make 'good entertainment,' but if it's to defame others then it's a problem with me.

I didn't even touch on how the racist 'scientists' busted the ancestors in the nose when they saw that they were 'BLACK!,' or how they completely desecrated Tutankamun's remains and made him look like a ancient Micheal Jackson.

Led by Zahi Hawass, head of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, a National Geographic Society team commissioned French experts to create the lifelike bust. Using the CT scans (see "King Tut Mummy Scanned" (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2005/01/0106_050106_tut_scan.html)), French forensic anthropologist Jean-NoŽl Vignal determined the basic measurements and features of Tutankhamun's face. Vignal deduced that Tutankhamun had a narrow nose, buck teeth, a receding chin, and Caucasian features. Such features are typical of European, North African, Middle Eastern, and Indian peoples.

yeah, but in that lame movie the mummu did not look black, so it is difficult to say that there is racism against blacks.

second point. if the geographers used technology to reconstruct the face, there is probably some credibility to the picture you posted. what other evidence is there? I am just asking because I know little of ancient history.

fuckin cant beat em join em. Who gives a fuck dawg u aren't gonna save the planet. Truth hurts but yall african gods arent going to see whitey disappear before u do. nope, sorry, its a lie.So in other words you're saying to turn a blind eye to a murderer? Can't isn't in my vocab. My job is to build with my elders and pass on jewels to the next generation while I link up with as many Brothers and Sisters as possible. Destroying all Crackers (The name they gave their selves for cracking whips) isn't in the plan now. We gotta employ Kujichagulia first.

I am just asking because I know little of ancient history.To depict Imhotep, villian or no, as white looking is as wrong as you can come. Then to make him a evil character is another slap in the face. To take our ancient rituals and make them a hollywood movie for people's sick enjoyment is yet another insult.

Think about this; if you show this picture to little children the first thing they'll say is that he's a white man. Look at his father for evidence.

but the study of bones, such as that facial reconstruction you posted, show they did completely resemble blacks. also the stone statute you have posted last does not look black at all. that does not mean they were white. maybe they were more closely related to the arabic peoples.

PS my understanding is that there existed different dynasties of different origins, that they were not a homogeneous group.

There were invasions that mixed the blood lines but Tutankhamun is known to be as his 'Burnt faced' relatives from the South (Ethiopia). Bottom line about King Tutankhmaun is that the hue that they depict him as is very deceiving to the unknowing.

LMAO, for real. The pics dont even represent black people.

You messed up your argument by posting pictures of white people who you thought looked black.

Some of you like to see what you want to see.

http://www.historyplace.com/specials/slideshows/mummies/mummification1.jpgThis is how most all bodies were buried even pre-dynastic era, in the fetal position facing their ancient land at the root of the Nile. This is a really well preserved body considering the time ellapsed.

LMAO, for real. The pics dont even represent black people.

Some of you like to see what you want to see.Who posted white people and where? If you're referring to Akhenaten please read up on him. If you see something that states information different from what I've posted PLEASE let me know.

It really can't be looked at as intentional dissrespect because of the emphasis that egyptians used to put on the curse of the mummies.
And also I would like to point out that Egyptians as such werent exactly black and still aren't a dark arican black so why should they be depicted as such

Do your history. The people of KMT are AFRICANS that migrated up from the source of the Nile River. Only after invasions by the Hyksos, Romans, and Greeks did their appearance start to change. I hope you aren't coming at this with a European point of view. I hope that you don't think that Aryans built the pyramids and established the first civilizations.

Point blank what I'm saying is that there are forces out there that don't want Africans to know about their greatness. One of the many tools used are the media. Pump a hate for those things that made you great into you as a child and you will seek greatness in others. But you don't hear me though, too much poison is in the air.

The depiction of mummies is maybe a tad racist, but really, white dead people don't do much better in the movies. Mummies are creepy.

As far as the skin color goes, Africans come in many shades. It wasn't some giant uniform group. Get over it.

i do not wish to sideline this subject of rascism, neither do i want to sway in any direction as to seem unopen 2 this topic.

i think hollywood does portray much of history which is very sentimental to people in a negative light, therefore people like black try and resurface these facts.

i do not believe that hollywood was on an overt mission to be agaisnt the african heritage as raised in this thread, but it is the lack of respect that is shown.

that is the extent to what i believe the case is for this thread.

i may be wrong of course, just tell me if i am

^Everyone's entitled to theirs. I say that the respect for Africans is about the same as the respect that they have towards my Native American Ancestors. Check out that gay cartoon, Bugs Bunny and them. Now was I just being hateful, no, I'm just stating common knowledge.

It's not common knowledge that just about everything that you see in your doctor's office is still etched in stone in KMT. It is not common knowledge that the concept of salvation originated at the heart of the Nile and was taken to greater heights close to the Delta. Read the words of the Greeks. Check out the names of the scientists and technetians (not archeologist and anthropologist) that accomponied Napoleon on his excavation of KMT. Soon after you get the battery and the light bulb and numberous other patented "inventions."

That same mindset, as subtle as it may seem, is living in mostly every person that has partaken in this Western society's mental conditioning. Oh, well they just borrowed from their design and made it better. YEAH right. If they stole the people what makes you think they won't steal their knowledge. Oh I almost forgot to mention you know what the Europeans did with a lot of our ancestors that were mummified right! They did the same thing that they did with the sweat of their olympians and gladiators... they drank and/or ate 'THEM' (DEAD PEOPLE) as an afroeziac or magic tonic. They sold our ancestors for top dollar to be eaten and drank. Go check the 'Black' market, I'm sure you can still get some, right along with snuff films and Hitler memorabilia. This same sick mind makes a mocery of our legacy today, PERIOD! Oh did I mention that once they accepted civilization they looked at Black Woman and Man as Gods. Go try and find that in a Western History Book.
