    Ancient Egyptians were black. This has been denied and the various pharaoahs whitened up for years. Particularly, this can be found in hollywood films. As time went on in Egypt other races settled and intermixed as there was no racism in the ancient world.

    She may have some egyptian in her ancestry but to me she looks a combination of white, american indian, black. I think she claims egyptian but I don’t see how she was born in Oklahoma, a big American Indian state, and be only from egypt.

      Hoda Kotb’s parents are native of Egypt but also lived in Nigeria for a time before settling in the U.S. She is more than like a mix of the localized pop. of Egypt (Amazigh, Arab, Turk, and Sub Saharan) as well as European.

    Egyptian is not a race or ethnic… Egypt is in Africa. The original Egyptians were black – black Africa. Today’s Egyptians are mixed people of Black, Arab, etc.
