This is the image of Cleopatra found on Wikipedia. According to Wikipedia  Cleopatra was a white woman. Sorry but the last time we checked wasn’t she born and raised in Egypt? The last time we checked when were Egyptians white? Why can’t we have anything? Why must they go make one of the most powerful woman in history white? I am sure if Cleopatra was the known as the “Jezebel” of ancient Egypt she would have remained a WoC. However, since was a powerful and prominent figure that contributed to ancient and modern society she can’t possibly be a person of color.
