Stop the white wash of Black Egypt
Petition Background (Preamble):
Another study said "The basal epithelial cells were packed with melanin as expected for specimens of Negroid origin."(Biotechnical & Histochemistry 2005, 80) These studies are inline with people who came FACE to FACE with the ancient Egyptians most notably Aristotle who said "Those who are too black are cowards, like for instance, the Egyptians and Ethiopians." (Aristotle, _Physiognomy_, 6) Diodorus agreed with Black Egypt and said "Ethiopians say also that the Egyptians are colonists sent out by the Ethiopians, Osiris having been the leader of the colony...And the larger part of the customs of the Egyptians are, they hold, Ethiopian."
You would not get Native Americans to play Christopher Columbus.
You would not get Chinese to play Greek Philosophers.
So why inaccurately portray the civilization Blacks built?
