Different groups of Black people have been called
Aethiopians. A name used even before the Greeks new of it or themselves. when Marco Polo visited China; Ghengis Khan had diplomatic relations with a country called Aethiopia. The Greeks claimed that Aethiopia's borders terminatted at their shores at one time. Herodotus called the Persians Aethiopians. Although, the people called themselves Cephanians after their king Cephus; and changed their name to Persian after Andromeda was rescued by Persus and gave birth to Persis. In aincient times their were three Aethiopias : Hind and Sind; which started at the Hindu Kush Mountains and stretched to Southern China and Southeast Asia; Central Aethiopia, encompassing Southern Syria and Iran, also Pakistan, the Arabian Peninsula (which was known as Kush at one time and the Romen called the South LITTLE INDIA). The borders of Central Aethiopia of which the Sabeans ruled at one time, terminated in what is now Northern Nigeria. Then there is Western Aethiopia; centered around aincient Ghanah.
Henc, at different periods during ourstory various lineages and ethnic groups have assumed paramouncy and leadership of the various Aethiopias which was really one in ultimate allegience. However, due to the vast geographical area involved, these polities became independent; although, pledging allegience to their common and ancesteral root Aethiopa(a name as spelt used by them before the GREEKS used it). It should be noted that during times of war, the crown Jewels was sent from Aethiopia to Ghanah
for safe keeping. It goes beyond saying that there was an early migration from the Nile Valley to Western Africa in remote times. Geez as most recently pointed out by scholars is much older and original on the African side of the Red Sea and is shown to be the linguistical root of migration across the Arabian Peninsula up into Fenku(kaanan and Pheonicia/Lebonon/Israel)from which evolved various dialects and languages, including the GREEK alphabet. One can observe the name of the Sphinx called GEEZA(GIZA) which means time. It should be noted that it took Makedah; who was a BLUE BLACK WOMAN( royal purple originating from the violet hue reflected on the skins of Aethiops)six months for her Royal Train filled with gold and other precious gifts to cross the Red Sea; on her Legendary visit to Solomon. In reflection we will find that Queen Hesheput sailed to GOD'S land in the interior; forwarding with incense and spices; this place was called PUNT which is the HORN OF Africa. Last but not laest, in bygone times, the geography of the area was different. There is a vast piece of land which sunk of into the sea, between East Africa and India, these included well laid out cities of three story buildings with indoor plumbing. This concurs why stories, names, faces and places are both similar in the India and Africa of today.
N.B. Semitic is just a word to confuse InI of the
authenticity of the Aethiopic origin of languages and CIVILIZATIONS.
