Why do African Americans think they're Egyptians?

Bantu people don't speak afro-asiatic languages. From my studies, ancient Egyptians were a very light brown Caucasoid people related to people in the middle east. Look at Saddam Hussein to get an idea.

    Kemet is one of many names used to refer to Egypt by Egyptians in the ancient times. ... Although the word itself means black. The name derived from the colour of the rich and fertile black soil which was due to the annually occurring Nile inundation. ...

    It became "Aiguptos" in Greek and this then led to "Egypt" in English.

    According to Diop, the Egyptians referred to themselves as "Black" people or kmt, and km was the etymological root of other words, such as Kam or Ham, which refer to Black people in Hebrew tradition.

    Ah, there's that verifiable name again, "Ham" (son of Noah). And several of Noah's grandsons keep popping up with their names on Egyptian monuments.

    DNA PROVES beyond ANY doubt that ancient Egyptians were NOT blacks. That FACT is inarguable.

    They are incapable of having more than a Stone Age culture when left to their own devices, and they are all too aware of it, so they try to steal other cultures. Egyptian paintings showed four colors of people. They painted themselves as red and blacks were called Nubians. The others were Europeans and Asians, of course.

    The First original humans that populated the world and Africa spread across the continent of Africa FIRST, Way before they walked out, they were in Egypt too. The curiosity for you should be ..how long is it estimated that humans lived on the continent of Africa before other Africans walked out to spread humans all over the planet. The answer is mind boggling and it’s obvious that if they walked out of Africa, they certainly lived in Egypt too.   

    No matter where they went, they were Black ..um before the color of skin mutated to adapt to its environment. And yes Egypt is in Africa. Do you really think they, your ancestors, were waiting THOUSANDS of years to explore Egypt or waiting for eons of time to welcome their light skin descendants back and then go into Egypt? It’s just common sense, even if you were never educated about it.  

    We are all descendants of Africans and you can try to twist it but the truth is out, regardless. They are our ancestral parents. They made You and Me. We should respect that fact. Your ROOTS are from Africa too. The Motherland of ALL humans

    African Americans have absolutely no culture or anything to be proud of so they pathetically try to claim Egyptians and other non-blacks.

    We don't.

    We don't know where we're from.  The white man didn't maintain records that would be of use to us.

      African Americans who imagine they are Egyptians are as badly-deluded as those who believe in God.
