    Friendly tip from a fellow Romanian

    themindofshmell:

    Because I have friends who are going to comic-con : if you get near Sebastian Stan, call him “coaie” ( read qua-yeh), it’s a Romanian term that shows affection, similar to “cutiepie”. He’ll be super impressed ;)

    Ask him ‘Ce faci, coaie?’, he’ll be more than super impressed.

#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.

You’re all so fucking stupid. As an archaeology student you guys embarrass me in all levels. Noses in statutes are the most fragile parts since it’s not secured, and guess what greek and egyptians had different materials to built and sculpt, and oh my god, ever you ever though about the fucking climate (wow they have different climates who knew right), fuck yeah, if you ever fucking lived a little, or read more books, or turned off History Tv Channel and actually read BOOKS from trusted egyptologists you would be surprised by the amount of knowledge that would get into your fucking little minds.
Also, let me tell other thing. Egyptians were not arab, neither black. Egyptians were a race, like the berberes are. It all ended when arabs reached Egypt and they mixed. Egypt had more than 40 tribes, yes tribes people! There is even a tribe with blue eyes, and yeah it’s wrong to portray this people with white actors etc, but let me tell you something, Cleopatra was not Egyptian, hell no, she came from the greeks there should be a little more whiter than the rest of the court/husband.
Just go read a book or be someone in this society. Don’t believe in such things like Tumblr SWJ

P.S. If old-white scholars broke the nose off that statue, they must have had impressive scuba gear since parts of old Alexandria have been gradually heading deeper and deeper under water for centuries after the tsunami of 365AD. Also, if you googlecheck your facts, that statue was identified as potentially Ptolemaios XV ie. Caesarion, not his mother.

    So collapse.
    Crumble.
    This is not your destruction.
