Unless you are of the mind the AE were magically genetically replaced during this period it certainly does. And regardless, it only further supports the archaeology going back thousands of years before the formation of the Dynastic state which often shows quite clearly Levantine cultural and material origins not to mention Mesopotamian influence on the formation of the Dynastic state. Or for that matter the morphological skeletal differences noted by Petrie in Elite Dynasty 0 burials at Abydos compared to the more indigenous population, burials which were clearly done in the Mesopotamian style including Mesopotamian type artifacts and burial customs.

You show an image of Djedefre and a modern member of the Dogon tribe as if they are somehow related yet ignore the fact, among many, the Dogon are nearly 2500 miles from the Nile not to mention there was no "Dogon" until c. the 11th-15th century AD. And the relations the AE did have with native Africans, well documented over thousands of years by the AE themselves, were with the Nubians to the south and not the "Dogon" nearly 2500 miles away who didn't even exist during pharaonic Egypt. And its interesting that a gap of 1,000yrs is a problem for you regarding the DNA testing, despite the fact this DNA would have a history of the same period and then some just to get to that point, yet you have no problem with a 4,500+ yr gap between Djedefre and a modern Dogon based on nothing more than full lips, which quite frankly otherwise look nothing alike. Nice try Laird.

Ankhaf of the 4th Dynasty has full lips but he is not African:

Again, Rahotep and Nofret from the OK have full lips but they are not African:

Hemiunu obviously is not African:


Reserve heads from the 4th Dynasty:
African:

Not African:


Note the full lips of Sargon of Akkad c.2300BC:

African or not African?
