It's not a claim. It's a fact.
Then it should be easy to back it up. Cite some reliable sources and we'll talk.
I started by posting a visible source of several reliable sources to make your work easier.
The Egyptians left the famous Egyptian mummies that are .. Caucasoid.
Bare assertions are not facts.
It's an assertion based on a fact. My sources are behind.
What about yours?
Do you have some reliable source denying that the mummies show Caucasoid men?
Do you have some reliable source confirming your statment about the Egyptians not being "white as we understand it"??
2) “Negroid” (aka “Congoid”) and “Caucasoid” are neither outdated nor unscientific. On the contrary they’re scientific terms used instead of the common “black” and “white” that don’t really mean too much for a physical anthropologist.
Except that racial designations are now widely considered unscientific among anthropologists.
So why didn’t you make the one who started this forum notice this instead of waiting for the person confirming ancient Egyptians were not black?
Wasn’t “chic” enough to deny what you name racial designations since the very beginning of this discussion because whites aren’t a minority there?
_ Except that physical and forensic anthropologists use specific designations to distinguish main human racial groups aka ancestries:
Caucasoid (aka European), Negroid (aka African, an ambiguous term because north Africa is not black), Mongoloid (aka East Asian), in instance.
Egyptians were Caucasoid.
Chekhov wrote:The American Anthropological Association recently released a statement to this effect.
The “American Anthropological Association” is an impersonal entity and I don’t see who’re those great scholars who’ve subscribed such a statement.
De facto anthropologists do use those denominations.
In his book named “Forensic Anthropology” (2006), Bradley J. Adams describes various cranial characteristics of the Caucasoid, Negroid and Mongoloid types respectively. Absolutely normal.
When talking about human phenotypes, name changes are just temporary trends, but the content doesn’t change at all:
“Another trend in forensic literature in the last decade of the 20th century was to use the term ancestry instead of race. The terms European, African and Asian have replaced Caucasoid/White Negroid/Black, and Mongoloid/Yellow/Red. An example of this trend can be found in A Lab Manual and Workbook for Physical Anthropology. This is widely used introductory lab manual that has gone through several editions, where many students of physical anthropology get their first introduction to a scientific approach to racial classification of unkown individuals in forensic contexts. In the first edition, France and Horn provide a summary of seven cranial morphologic and metric characters that can be used to classify an unknown individual as Negroid, Caucasoid, or Mongoloid. In the fourth edition of the lab manual the same seven cranial morphological and metric characters are used to classify the unkown as being African European or (east) Asian ancestry. The underlying assumptions are the same.
” (A. Schmitt, E. Cunha, Humana Press, 2006).
Plus that’s just about the Anglo American space and not about the world.
In physical and forensic anthropology I can call an Asian guy “Mongoloid” or “of East Asian ancestry” if you prefer: but I must classify, it’s not something I’m just allowed to do.
Mummies have been classified as Caucasoid.
As far as “Negro” is concerned, the United States Census Bureau still includes "Negro" on the 2010 United States Census, alongside “black” and “African-American”.
That's irrelevant. They aren't an authority on the subject; scientists are.
It’s absolutely relevant because you had said I can’t understand how that terminology is “outdated”, but it is still in use and accepted (by scientists as well).
What you said “they were not white as we understand it” is far from being a scientific argument.
Race is not scientific.
Aren’t phenotypes scientific? Such classifications are absolutely scientific, whatever is the term one uses “races” or “ancestry”.
And the Egyptians were Caucasoid.
