An Ancient Egyptian and a Modern Ethiopian lady

Karenga notes that it “is … playing Europe’s racial game to concede that Egyptians are white or Asian if they don’t look like a Eurocentric version of a  African.” Furthermore, “the Sudanese, Ethiopians and Somalis, perhaps, resemble the ancient Egyptians and ancient Nubians more than any other peoples and they are, even by Eurocentric standards, African. Europeans normally reply that many races have these features, but did those “many races” occupy Africa thousands of years ago?
One thing that must be remembered is that the western interest in Egyptology was at it’s highest during the years in which there was staunch racial inequality and bigotry.
