    The word black does not refer to a specific race.  Egyptians are neither black nor white - they are the colour one would expect God to have made them considering the area of the world where He, originally, placed them.  God provides skin colour appropriate to the part of the world where HE chose they would live.  There are very many shades between white and black.

    No, they are Caucasian, and there is no Arab race, an Arab is someone from an Arabic speaking country

    Modern Egyptians are Arab

    Ancient Egyptians existed before the concept of race as we know it, and probably before Arabs existed as a distinct separate group. It's also very clear the Greeks and Latins (Romans) were also in that area too. So they can only be classified as Mediterranean.

    It’s very unlikely that sub-saharans had much to the development of Egypt as an ancient super power. There’s just no evidence that supports it.

    • the Greeks and Romans are babies compared to the Ancient black Egyptians who were there 1000's of year before!

    The accepted racial categories are:

    White

    American Indian or Alaska Native. ...

    Asian. ...

    Black or African American. ...

    Hispanic or Latino. ...

    Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander.

    Egyptians and other people from middle eastern countries don't fit if any of those categories. When filling out forms, they would check "Other". as their race Maybe it's time to add to the list, or even better, forget about the whole idea of racial differences!
