Egyptians call themselves Kemet: from '(kṃt), or "black land" (from kem "black"), [which in turn] is derived from the fertile black soils deposited by the Nile floods, distinct from the deshret, or "red land" (dšṛt), of the desert.'

As a red man what can I think, but that the desert is my proper home? Conversing with the shapes that haunt thought's wildernesses. And thinking: Adam Kem would be a good name for a character.
