Egyptians complain over Netflix depiction of Cleopatra as black

Basically some African Americans are doing to Egyptian history what Hindutva Indian nationalists do to history of neighbouring countries. Claim others history and present it as their own. My understanding is the Egyptians are not annoyed at a black character playing Cleopatra. They are annoyed at a group of nationalist African Americans presenting Egyptian history through an angle which furthers an AA agenda.
 
Nah bro.. She doesn't look Egyptian..

Here this is one of the Pharoah's after doing computer design on his skulls..

Egyptians were colonised by the Europeans, hence the change in tint.

However , the ancient Egyptians were colonised by the Nubians who were black. This can be seen by the bust of Cheops who had the great pyramid built :-

His features are clearly African.

Well,wouldn't a Pakistani be annoyed if a Bengali portrayed Jinnah? Or a Thai?

Colonization ≠ changing the genetic pool of the locals. The Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Persians, Brits, Turks were always the ruling class. When they conquer/invade Egypt, the locals don't mix with them.
Europeans colonized Sub Saharan African countries, but sub saharan africans didn't become more whiter. Did Pakistanis Indians became more white when the Brits colonized South Asia? The answer is no. Same thing with Egypt

" We conclude that the Egyptians have been in place since back in the Pleistocene and have been largely unaffected by either invasions or migrations. As others have noted, Egyptians are Egyptians, and they were so in the past as well."

No ofc, it is just where do you live simple as that.
Like this for example. It is because of the Brits that N.Indians became more whiter than S.Indians?

Rami Malek and Mena Massoud are coptics. All the photos of other persons that you showed they look exactly Egyptians/North Africans.
The only time where Nubians ruled Egypt was the 25th dynasty. So at least +1000 years difference between the pyramids and the nubian dynasty.

Exactly the same skin tone.
 
Loosen up, guys. Loosen up!
'Caucasian' is not the same as 'white' and don't get too defensive about using terms which describe people! The number one determinant of 'races' is that when two distinct races mix with each other--like the east Asians or the Africans or the Caucasians (in which I include northwest Indians along with Pakistanis) then their offsprings would show where they came from. A child born between Caucasians would easily be recognized as a Caucascian. However, between Caucasians and Africans or between the east Asians and Caucasicans etc would look different and probably going into grandkids!

I don't know why you guys have such a short fuse?? It is not about trying to 'fit in'. It stating what's in our 'genome' for the millennia! This thread is about 'races' and so it was apt to point out to someone why Jinnah could be easily portrayed by Christopher Lee. Would Denzel Washington play Jinnah? Would Xi Ji Pin play Jinnah? No! Of course Jinnah could have been easily portrayed by many Pakistanis. But how does that take away from Christopher Lee--a great actor--playing Jinnah?

So get off your woke high-horses, take a chill pill and connect to the essence of this thread.
Thats a straight up lie and not genomics at all. Genomics is about DNA and if you know anything about DNA it does not have names like caucasian/east asian etc. Each individual and area has their own unique DNA, trying to classify and cherry pick yourself in the group of Europeans is kind of an inferiority complex at work here. Why don't you categories yourself as African? I am sure you can make an equal or more compelling case for that base on skin color and geography too.

The number one determinant of 'races' is that when two distinct races mix with each other--like the east Asians or the Africans or the Caucasians (in which I include northwest Indians along with Pakistanis) then their offsprings would show where they came from.
This part is delusional to say the least considering you believe south asians are caucasians and their kids are easily recognisable as caucasians lol. P.S number one determinants are never subjective bullsh1t either, its objective measures and results.

before you classify urself as a particular group, think if that group accepts u or not then decide. e.g. go up to white people and tell them ur caucasian and u will get ur answer. Tell the cops not to identify u as brown but caucasian and u get ur answer. then decide if u want to be laughing stock of inferiority complex meme.
