there is literally nothing to prove she wasn’t macedonian and greek other than historically inaccurate blaxplotation films in the seventies.
she was descended straight from ptolomy, a macedonian-greek general, her mother was probably and father was confirmed macedonian greek, she was the first ptolemic queen to learn to actually speak egyptian, it’s been proven she preferred dressing in the greek style…
the only thing that she could have been other than macedonian and greek is a tiny bit of persian. the ptolomies even preferred lighter-skinned concubines. light skin was good to them. if she was half egyptian or black, it’s guaranteed she wouldn’t have been able to rule, as her skin would have been too dark and she would have been assumed illegitimate.
it’s been decided by the world’s most accurate and informed scholars that she was macedonian and greek with a bit of persian. there is literally no chance that she was native egyptian. the skull of arsinoe isn’t even proven to be arsinoe. what those archeologists say is a hunch - it’s not true.
cleopatra was not black or egyptian. she was a white conqueror. think ‘colonists in america’. that’s what the ptolomies were to egypt. considering she was the first ptolomy in generations to actually speak egyptain, that should tell you A LOT about the type of rulers they were.
it’s been yet to be discredited by anyone in the past two thousand years. your hopes are never going to be validated, cleopatra was macedonian and greek, get over it.
also, please work on your punctuation and go inform yourself on egyptian, greek, and macedonian history before trying to prove me wrong.
"cleopatra was not black or egyptian. she was a white conqueror. think ‘colonists in america’. that’s what the ptolomies were to egypt" BOOM. i love cleopatra’s story, it’s fascinating as hell, but my fellow black people need to stop glorifying her and come to terms with the fact that she and her family were white/european/"western" conquerors of egypt. there are plenty of legit black african queens to idolize.

Are you in the best form of your career?
“I do well every season. At least I try to prepare [for that and do] the best I can. Perhaps, in regards to the amount of goals I’m scoring, this is the best moment of my life. This may be my best season, but I believe that that’s the case every year.”

things like slenderman (so like humanoid featureless things with unnaturally long limbs) are actually one of the things that REALLY get to me but i cant take slenderman seriously because hes wearing a fucking suit. what kind of self respecting nightmare wears a suit. its like hes in an awkward teen phase where he says the word ‘classy’ a lot and wonders why girls dont like him even though he wears a suit to school every day. what a fucking nerd. i wanna give slenderman a wedgie
