Philadelphia - A travelling exhibition on King Tutankhamun drew about 50 protesters in Philadelphia who denounced the popular display as racist.
Molefi Asante, a professor of African-American studies at Temple University, led the demonstration on Sunday outside the Franklin Institute, claiming the exhibit has no mention of Africa and that it suggests the ancient Egyptian king was white.

Some Arabs ARE black,or at least have lots of black or Negroid blood.
Example-the current rulung military clique in The Sudan.Lighter than the darker skinned Southerners but still”black”as defined by American standards.
Wonderful line, Steve. And so true of liberals I've known. That kind seems to be drawn especially to the educational and "news" trades.
Shame on you!
Hey, if you’re still online, FReepmail me please?
I think he’s actually American born Arabic;
>>If a person doesnt know that Egypt is in Africa, then they need to go back to grade school.
Besides, who really cares what color they were?<<
Obviously, Prof. Asante cares - indeed, very much so.
It seems he and others are desperate to legitimize their own race. At least that is how I see it.

well duh.....Tut was Caucasoid.
guess they should thrown in some Nubes to soothe the brother’s beast
I damn sure do when they lie incessantly and work overtime in psuedoscience to try to disprove anything substantive that ever happened in the course of human history was White or European when in fact the opposite is more true than not.
They considered themselves separate from Berbers, Semetics, Nubians, Somailis, Abyssianians and Eurasian peoples.....supposedly
man this stuff is so charged today it;s hard to get straight talk on it.
let them do DNA on Tut....that will clear it up.
Negroid or not? or to what degree Caucasoid
it seems to me that the Egyptians were a group that had stayed in that area since man first migrated to the area up the Nile and hence more separated themselves from subSaharan blacks more than not
sorry Cornell West.
Nubians were the inhabitants of Nubia, the country south of Egypt. It became civilized during the period of the Egyptian Old Kingdom, with an Egyptian-derived culture (there are more pyramids in Nubia than Egypt). Their contact with Egypt was extensive, since they were the source of most Egyptian Gold. At times they rivaled and even surpassed Egyptian power, with one Egyptian Dynasty actually consisting of Nubian Pharaohs. Racially the Nubians were Nilotic people, with Black skins and Hamitic features. They were Christianized from Egypt during the early Christian era, and held out against Islam for hundreds of years after the fall of Egypt. Their territory is now the Sudan, although it was much less dry during that period. The Christian people of souther Sudan include their descendants. Verdi's opera Aida is based on the history of Egyptian - Nubian conflict, and Aida herself is a Nubian.
Something to do with being salted down, dried out, and preserved for 3500 years, IMHO.
Up until the early 20th century Italians, Greeks and most other non Northern Europeans were lumped in with blacks.
There are more pyramids in Mexico than all the rest of the world combined.
Does that include Guatemala and Belize in ‘the rest of the world’?
Yes, according to Dr Robert Schoch.
True.I grew up around quite a few Italians and I distinctly remember a number of them who could have easily”passed”for either Negro,Mexican,Portuguese or Arab.
Of course,TELLING them that was guaranteeing a fight!
yep and this Asante feller is one of the main charlatans.
