Fagunwa, I wanted to respond to this in a more personalized way, but I spread the hours in my day out far to thin. Which is why your getting this so late. while I live for black folks to ask me this, I'm everywhere as usual, so I'm going to give you a link to look through. DO NOT take this link as me just just giving you a quick answer and a brush off. I figured it would be better for you read as much as you like than a quick rundown. Back in 02, I researched and came to a great many conclusions that seemed out of the box, and when I found this place our conclusions and evidence supporting were 95% the same http://www.hebrewisraelites.org/physicalapp.htm

There would have been some intermarriage among the Israelites in Egypt (one guy who was mean to his parents in the Exodus had an Egyptian parent, for example).
This idea that it all came out of "Africa" is backwards. Hebrews were about as "African" as the Aussie Aborigines. The direction of migration as to who went where is all wrong when considering where "Africans" came from.
Egyptians did not originate in Africa, they CAME to Africa (Egypt), and while they had quite a number of what we now call "African" features, this does not make them "African" in origin. The Ark landed in Ararat's mountains, which is in Turkey. Therefore it makes more sense to call everyone "Turkish" in origin (lol) than "African."
There is NO reason (other than individual biases that have nothing to do with actual facts) to NOT believe the Bible is recorded history. Many archaeologists have discovered and unearthed locations that were ONLY known in the writings of the Bible (in regards to documentation anyone could access), and in other instances the Bible confirmed other documents as to city locations, etc.
The fact that the Hebrews were NOT "light-skinned" doesn't mean they were of the same direct root as the Egyptians. Dark skin isn't the sole indicator of "race" (which is a bull$#*t concept anyway in regards to Humans--all humans are the SAME "RACE"!!!!!) They all do have a common ancestor (Noah, with Adam being the farthest back as to common ancestry).
