We Want Some Mo, We Want Some Mo - Day 90

Black Egypt turning brown and then white, occurred during one of the most fateful periods of crisis 2181-2040 B.C. which included Asian incursions during the Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, and Tenth dynasties.

Kings in Lower Egypt, often claimed to be kings or pharaohs of all Egypt without having gained control over the whole country. This point is highly important; for what it means is that there were periods when both white and black aspirants claimed to be pharaohs of Egypt at the same time when none actually had effective control over the nation. Also Writers, know this well enough, have nevertheless generally presented the whites and Afro-Asians (classified as “white”) as the Egyptian pharaohs while ignoring the African pharaohs altogether. Their defense, when pressed, is that the African pharaohs are indicated as Thebans, Memphites, etc., satisfied with the use of these terms is a part of the “blackout” of black history. In addition, these Asian incursions should be stressed because these population pressures caused a steady withdrawal of non-integrating Blacks southward below the First Cataract.

To overlook this early separatist movement among the Blacks is to neglect one of the most important keys to the fuller understanding of black Egyptian history.

Dr. Chancellor Williams

The tug of war between Black and White (and Afro Asian) was far from over.
