This kind of theological ignorance is what happens when you skip over the "boring bits" of the Bible, like the genealogy in Genesis 10, which clearly states that the races descended from Noah's sons.

Gen 10:32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.

If you don't accept the Biblical account, what is the alternative? The only one I'm aware of is the evolutionist explanation. Personally, I find it hard to swallow that somehow a white couple gave birth to an African man, who then had to find an African woman (who had somehow evolved on the same continent, no less!) and sire offspring with her. These offspring then would have had to have incestuous relations with each other over many generations to end up populating the whole continent. I don't accept this far-fetched narrative and I don't think you do, either.

It is far more reasonable to accept the Biblical account. The descendants of Shem, Ham and Japheth maintained separate lineages for centuries while they all spoke the same language and lived together in Shinar. Then, because of the pride of Babel, God confounded their language and scattered them abroad according to their lineages (Genesis 11).

Further, the Bible shows that no race is superior or inferior to any other . . . . From the divine vantage point, there is no diversity of ethnicity.
In Old Testament times, the children of Israel were the superior race.

Deut 7:6 For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

And God discriminated against other races. Here are just a few examples.

Deut 23:3 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the Lord for ever:

Deut 23:19-20
19 Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:
20 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it.


Deut 20:16-18
16 But of the cities of these people, which the Lord thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth:
17 But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee:
18 That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the Lord your God.


The children of Israel foreshadowed the church. To deny that God held the children of Israel in higher esteem than all other nations is to deny that God holds His church in higher esteem than unbelievers.

I can say that in not a single passage is the term used of a pigmentation distinction, e.g., white race, black race, yellow race, etc. The Scriptures speak of nations, tribes, tongues [languages], and peoples, but they do not focus upon color shades. Geographical regions or close cultural associations are the usual applications of the word. The following facts are most relevant to this issue.
Jeremiah alludes to a difference in skin colour between Africans and Semites.

Jer 13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.

Quote:
All human beings are from a solitary human couple, Adam and Eve, who were fashioned by the hand of God himself (Gen. 1:26-27; 2:7,21-23). In his discourse to the Athenians, Paul declared that God “made of one every nation [ethnos] of men to dwell on all the face of the earth” (Acts 17:26 – ASV).
It is true that all humans are ultimately descended from Adam and Eve. But more recently, we are descended from from another couple: Noah and his wife (1 Pet 3:20). Whatever races may have existed before the Flood (the descendants of Cain, for example) were all wiped out. The races that exist today arose after the Flood, based on their descent from Noah's sons.


Mt 21:42, 44 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes . . . ? And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
