10 Arguments That Prove Ancient Egyptians Were Black


Cultural Unity of Egypt With The Rest of Africa

Diop found that in ancient Egypt there existed “African cultural commonalities” of matriarchy, totemism, divine kinship, and cosmology.”

Through a study of circumcision and totemism, he offers detailed data on the cultural unity between Egypt and the rest of Africa. He noted: “Historians are in general agreement that the Ethiopians, Egyptians, Colchians, and people of the Southern Levant were among the only people on earth practicing circumcision, which confirms their cultural affiliations, if not their ethnic affiliation.”

He added: “The Egyptian style of (adolescent) circumcision was different from how circumcision is practiced in other parts of the world but similar to how it is practiced throughout the African continent.”
