Some of the smartest dummies
Can't read the language of Egyptian mummies

from Nas (Ft. Damian Marley) – Patience (Sabali) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

European civilization decoded the hieroglyphics using the Rosetta Stone™*.. but they still can’t get their act together in terms of class/gender/race equality..

Pretty dumb (for smart people)..

It is also worth noting that some of the greatest individuals in History who are probably now “dummies” in museums etc, couldn’t read the language of Egyptian mummies.
