R.I.P Tutankhamen, African King
Tutankhamen was African â€“ as were those who built the great pyramids of ancient Egypt â€“ as the great scholar the late Cheik Anta Diop has proven in his classic writings, including â€œThe African Origin Of Civilizationâ€?
[Black Star News Editorial]
The truth cannot be concealed forever.
Many of us were not surprised when Tutankhamen body was at least unveiled and it was shown that his face and body was Black. Why should it come as any surprise?
He was African – as were those who built the great pyramids of ancient Egypt – as the great scholar the late Cheik Anta Diop has proven in his classic writings, including “The African Origin Of Civilization,” please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheikh_Anta_Diop
The boy king’s tomb was first exposed and desecrated – not “discovered” as the perverted corporate media keep stating—some 85 years ago by a British trespasser, Howard Carter.
And for almost a century, debate has raged whether Tutankhamen was Black or “Caucasian.” Those who insisted he was Caucasian were never able to bring themselves to believe that the Pyramids were built by Africans. Just as even today Europeans cannot bring themselves to accept that the great ruins of Zimbabwe were built by Africans; and that Africa is the source of all human beings.
So it was no surprise that all these years the powers-that-be did not want to expose Tutankhamen’s body because of the obvious fact—the whole world would be able to see that he was African.
Corporate media have been referring to the King’s “ancient skin the color of charcoal” and “texture of old leather.” Well to us that is simply B-L-A-C-K.
The Boy King died mysterious ate age 19 some 3,000 years ago in; he had ruled since he was eight. He was buried with fabulous riches.
Now that the debate has ended, the desecration should stop. The road shows, whereby the remains have been carried around the world to earn revenues for Egypt’s treasurer should stop. Let the African King rest in peace.
