Never let them define our culture with their propaganda.
BUT EGYPTIAN PEOPLE ARE NOT AND WERE NOT BLACK.
You’re thinking of Nubians.
Have you been to Egypt? Have you seen the native Egyptians. Not the Arab settlers I’m taking indigenous Egyptians. Plus wtf are you talking about saying the Ancient Egyptians weren’t black? Like that’s just wilful ignorance. Even if they weren’t black as you claim the certainly weren’t even close to white so explain to me why white Europeans are playing these characters?
Regardless of what Egyptians were (which is Black / Brown), this story is about their gods. Set and Horus’ story in particular revolves around the fact that Set was fair-skinned (not White) and had reddish hair which was looked down upon in their culture, while Horus and his brothers were darker-skinned and thus more accepted in their society. The entire story that is being portrayed, unless it strays absolutely completely from any real mythology, is completely pointless if that skin difference is not there because that is why Set was so hated, and why he became the god of destruction, war, and foreigners. His issues with Horus were based primarily on the fact that (a) Horus abused him because he looked different, and (b) because Horus encouraged the other gods to belittle and ridicule him.
All of the hieroglyphs and painted depictions of these gods clearly show their skin. Horus is clearly brown-skinned, Set is light but not ‘White’ per se. It’s not that hard to figure these things out. Egypt is still a place, it’s still in Africa, it’s always been in Africa, it’s inhabitants have always been African, period. Y’all just want to take credit for something you didn’t do.
In fact, the idea that Egyptians were White came from the scientific racism of the 18th and 19th centuries. However, it’s already been disproven that they were White. There is literally no support for that claim outside of the “assumption” that they had “White” features. Conveniently, colonists blew the noses off of their statues to destroy the evidence of their wider noses. They still referred to themselves as the Black people (kmt / kemet) of the Black land, and there have been melanin tests and the like which have proven that they were darker than what they are commonly depicted as today.
Why don’t you go grab a book?
