Well hi! My name's Savannah. I'm a 17 year old high school student; keep the standards on the low side.
Ancient Egypt was not a mixed society.
Ancient Egypt was PITCHED BLACK until the 7th century AD, when Indo Aryans called Arabs invaded from Central Asia.
For 99 percent of Egyptian history, Egypt was as BLACK as Nigeria, as BLACK as Congo, and as BLACK as Senegal.
King Tut was a dark skinned black man,
Queen Tiye was a beautiful and EXTREMELY dark skinned woman.
Hatshepsut was also very very very dark skinned.
Even during the Ptolemaic period of Kemet, the Egyptians were primarily African.
The fact that the most advanced civilization of human history was composed primarily of Black People is the most annoying and frustrating thing to white supremacist historians today.

Wear sweatpants everyday
Or wear a dress everyday
Wear whatever makes you comfortable
Nobody will laugh at you if you sit alone at your lunch table for five minutes
Utilize the library

Tell your friends how much you love them
Cherish your free textbooks… seriously
Help confused freshmen, be nice to them. Remember how much you would have appreciated it a couple years ago

That fight you had with your mom really isn’t that big of a deal
It’s okay to cry
Don’t let your desire for a romantic relationship stop you from forming platonic relationships
Remember that life

25 things i wish i realized while i was still in highschool
"Such a waste of talent. He chose money over power. In this town, a mistake nearly everyone makes. Money is the Mc-mansion in Sarasota that starts falling apart after 10 years. Power is the old stone building that stands for centuries. I cannot respect someone who doesn’t see the difference."
