Black … is the divine epithet invariably used for the chief beneficent gods of Egypt [Kemet], whereas all the malevolent spirits are qualified as desrêt = red; we also know that to Africans this form applies to the white nations; it is practically certain that this held good for Egypt too but I want […] to keep to the least debatable facts.
The surnames of the gods are these:
Kmwr = the ‘Great Negro’ for Osiris
km = the black + the name of the god
kmt — the black + the name of the goddess
The km (black) qualificative is applied to Hathor, Apis, Min, Thoth, etc. Kmt = the black woman = Isis. On the other hand ‘seth’, the sterile desert, is qualified by the term desrêt = red. The wild animals which Horus fought to create civilization are qualified as desrêt = red, especially the hippopotamus. Similarly the maleficent beings wiped out by Thoth are Des = dèsrtjw = the red ones; this term is the grammatical converse of Kmtjw and its construction follows the same rule for the formation of ‘nisbés.
