I dunno, some bullshit.
The Prince of Egypt + Thor and Loki [ 1 / 2 ]
do you make grandiose speeches and perform a series of supernatural feats that result in a massive death toll, or do you… wait
Oh c’mon that’s not fair I mean Loki was recruited to carry out the bidding of a hitherto unknown supernatural bei —- wait.
Moses and Loki, there’s one comparison I never saw coming.
Well. That’s interesting …
Thought this could use a reblog.
people who say blacks instead of black people are just in a hurry cause they have a white nationalist meeting to go to
New Protest MVP Candidate! Get it girl! #staywoke #farfromover #thefutureisbright
Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2)
Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace
Just in case anyone thinks these are old posts still going round Tumblr: they’re not.
Since the original article has since been deleted (I can’t imagine why…), you can still view it here.
While ancient Egyptians were, by all accounts, black, the fact remains that their civilization was under foreign rule for the last 340 years before its collapse. There are literally numerous funerary coffins from that time period—different from a traditional Egyptian sarcophagus—that bore portraits depicting the person inside. These are referred to as Fayum mummy portraits. They are clearly a departure from Egyptian practices and artwork, and are considered as direct Roman influence, so yes: There is quite a lot of evidence as to the Greek and Roman occupation of Egypt.
As for Cleopatra, even her name is of Greek origin. As mentioned above, she was part of the Ptolemaic dynasty of Greek rulers that served as Egyptian pharaohs. The land would be later ruled over by Romans, Arabs, and Muslims. It is not known who her mother is, but it is speculated that even her mother may have been part Macedonian, and not fully Egyptian, thus putting even the suggested quarter of Egyptian heritage into question. While both queens Hapshetsut and Nefertiti were of pure Egyptian lineage, Cleopatra was not.

Or, if you’d like even more information, I’m pretty sure I’ve got a few books around here on the subject.
But seriously: Please do not make a post about the history of anything unless you are knowledgeable enough about it that you are not presenting a false account of someone else’s civilization.
