If Adam and Eve were White, what did black people evolve out of?
First, Adam color was the color of sand (that’s why his name was Adam). So, his color was mid-tone between white and dark colors (it’s light brown). Second, the explanation from the Islamic point view of why there are black colored people and white colored people etc… is simple: When Allah (GOD) wanted to create Adam, he ordered the angel to bring clay from the earth and Allah asked him to bring it from all over parts of the earth (white clay, brown clay, yellow clay, black clay..), and from that multi-colored clay, Allah (GOD) created ADAM, … so the origins of those human colors are inhereted from our father (ADAM)… very simple!
1) Black people evolved from Homo erectus, like the rest of us.

Until the mid-19th century, this was taken by many as historical fact, and still is by many Orthodox Jews, Muslims, and Christians. Many others regard the list as part of Jewish folk legend. There are disputes about how many of the peoples of the Earth this story was intended to cover, and as to its accuracy. Many Jews, Christians, and Muslims retain the belief that the table applies to the entire population of the earth. In the Biblical view, the listed children of Japheth, Shem and Ham correspond to various historic nations and peoples. In the typical interpretation, these sons of Noah correspond to three races: European, Semitic, and African. Others read it as a guide only to local ethn
From what I have read, they probably were neither black of white. They could very well have been some variation in between the two. Early in human history, when a group of people were isolated from others and married with in the group, certain distinctive combinations of genetic traits were emphasized in their offspring. Note what (Heredity and Human Life) has to say on the subject. “A race is simply one of the partially isolated gene pools into which the human species came to be divided during and following its early geographical spread. Roughly one race has developed on each of the five major continental areas of the earth. . . . Man did indeed diverge genetically during this phase of history and we can measure and study the results of this divergence in what remains today of the old geographical races. As we would expect, divergence appears to be correlated with the degree of isolation. . . . When race formation took place on the continents, with the bottlenecking of thousands of po
