#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…

I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.

The shade is real

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.

Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
    I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

I’m embarrassed and ashamed to add myself to the list of people who where taught that the noses “fell off” as a child and never once stopped to think about how incongruous that was to everything I had been taught about the Egyptian civilizations and their propensity for lasting works of art.

I was never taught this. In fact, by the time I entered an integrated school setting, the Egyptian portion of history was usually brief and skipped until the Roman Empire entered the story.

It’s actually pretty surprising how you can learn more about history on Tumblr than in an actual history class…

Uncritically accepting something you read on tumblr is at least as bad as doing the same for something you hear in school.

Wait, so are you saying you agree or disagree with this?

I feel that they’re saying to research the things you find on Tumblr to make sure they are true just the same as you should research things learned in school
My school taught that the nose on the Spinx was shot off accidently during conflict. That was note true, it was shot off intentionally to hide Egyptian ethnicity. It’s important to learn and teach people the truth about how Egyptian statues lost their noses
This post began about a statue of Cleopatra. She was of Greek heritage, her family took over the ruling of Egypt after Alexander the Great conquered it. There is little known of her mother and grandmother, so it’s possible that Cleopatra was mixed race, but it’s very likely that she was entirely Greek because there was a long standing Egyptian tradition of marrying siblings to preserve the bloodline and we know that her family tried to keep to this tradition
Women are often forgotten in history or their story is changed to serve a purpose. Cleopatra is a woman who did great things and made history at a time when women rarely did. Researching her story, instead of accepting what you’re told in history class or on social media, will help her real story survive

Does anybody have any good material on this? I’m genuinely fascinated.
