ANCIENT EGYPTIAN ATTITUDE TOWARDS THEIR BLACK COUSINS

By Andre Austin

Some of the furniture and clothing of the ancient Egyptians reveal some of the attitudes of the ancient Egyptians towards their darker skinned cousins in Nubia and Ethiopia.

When Howard Carter discovered the tomb of King Tut in 1922 he found some interesting furniture and clothing of the ancient Egyptians that expressed their superiority over their enemies which included their cousins. Carter wrote:

“Upon the seat of the throne rested the footstool that originally stood before it, a stool of gilded wood and dark blue faience, with panels on the top and sides on which were represented captives, bound and prone. This was a very common convention in the East- ‘until I make thine enemies thy footstool’ [Psalm 110:1], sings the Psalmist-and we may be sure that on certain occasions convention became actual fact” (The Discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamen p.119).

Also see Matthew 22: 44 and Malachi 4:3 “then you will trample down the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet”. The Egyptians didn’t have misery for their enemies. They made the Asiatics do the dog walk and pull chariots like horses.

A stele erected under Ramses II on his way to the gold mines of Nubia says in part:

“The Gods contented-the strong bull against the miserable Ethiopians, his roaring rages against the Negro-land: whilst his hoofs trample the troglodytes, his horn pushes them-his spirit is mighty in Nubia” (Life in Ancient Egypt p.57 by Adolf Erman). We must seriously take a second look at the Chancellor Williams when he said:

“Since the first to be called Egyptians exclusively were half-African and Half-Asian, their general hostility to their mothers’ race was a social phenomenon that should not be passed over lightly…some of these early blacks seeking ‘integration’ with the Asians that they themselves did most in creating the new breed of Egyptians who were to become their mortal enemies” (The Destruction of Black Civilization p.73). This doesn’t mean the entire country was mixed. The “Black House” and its administration may have been obsessed with hiring Phoenicians to bring in white slaves for their harem, but the regular houses were black like us. “The Egyptians were so little white, that when the encountered a white person with red hair, they killed him immediately as a sick person unable to adapt to life” (The African origin of Civilization p.240 by Cheikh Anta Diop). They also thought Red-heads were symbolic of Satan. A thousand years from now anthropologist may get the wrong perception that the USA was predominantly black because it had a black president for 8 years. They would dig in the cemeteries to find out that that was a mistake.

Howard Carter also reports on King Tut’s walking sticks “are represented the two foes of the King, symbolizing the Northern and Southern enemies of Egypt. The Asiatic type is of Ivory, the African is of ebony. They are unique in Egyptian art” (The Discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamen p.214).


Black Nubians at the bottom of ancient Egyptian shoes.

The Egyptian had 30 Dynasties and we can exclude 13-17 & 27-30 because they were controlled by whites. So if we find some rogue black dynasties who were mixed, while the entire population was virtually black, saying and doing things against their black cousins isn’t representative of Egypt as a whole. Its hard to find furniture and clothing that downgrade darker-skinned blacks because it isn’t business friendly to a country seeking tourist dollars.

Washing peoples feet is one thing but putting your opponents at the bottom of your shoes under your feet held a different derogatory context in ancient times. Teenagers in high school are now wearing shoes named after the Egyptian God Osiris. The Ancient Egyptians would have looked upon this as disrespectful. As time goes on standards and norms changed. Take for instance ancient Egyptian clothing for Men and the Romans would be now called female dresses and mini-skirts.

Feet don’t fail me now.
