This source confirms yet again that the ancient world viewed the Egyptians as a part of the black races. This source is important because it helps one to avoid presentism and keep the ancient Egyptians in their ancient context.

This source helps to reconstruct the black presence in the ancient and medieval Mediterranean realm. This source talks about both “dark-skinned” and “light-skinned” Jews existing in the ancient and medieval world.

Individuals like Kush the Benjaminite, Michal the daughter of Kushi (a Jewish woman), and Niger of Perea (a general in the Jewish army) were all dark-skinned Jews who were darker than the average Jew. Meaning, I believe the ancient Israelites existed on the “dark-colorization” that the author of this text brought up for other peoples like the Egyptians. I believe (taking this text and the other information we have available on this website into account) many Israelites could be identified as being “black people with brown skin” while Israelites (Shemitic individuals in general) who were named Kushi, Kushite, Kedar, Asshur, Phinehas, or Niger due to them being “black people with skin that is actually black or near pitch black”. When I say black in this context, I literally mean black like tar-pitch black or crayon black. A lot of black people aren’t actually black, many are various shades of brown and I believe that is the literal context that various ancient and medieval authors used to describe Israelites and other black peoples who existed on the “dark colorization” spectrum.

In summary, the author’s commentary and vast number of sources indicate that it is fair to say that black people/black Israelites did exist in ancient Israel.
