The question is why would I not assume that he was a black/african? Looking at his bust he is a black/african..his dynasty comes from memphis his son was called Pepi the black? How are these assumptions or even speculative observations? How is it that the rulers of Egypt that come from the populous of Egypt aren't the same race as Egyptians? Yet the rulers of Hittites, Parthians, Scythians, Romans, Greeks, Jews aren't called into speculation of being different from the people? Why is Egypt such an obscure place when it comes to race by the status quo but NOWHERE else is??
