Kai your statement is precisely correct.
The term Semitic/Hebrew is an oxymoron.
The word [Semitic] implies "mixed" races which the original "Afrim/"Ivrim" people were not! They originated from these main tribes which originated in ancient Black African Egypt and exist today in Ghana as:
And the word [Hebrew] implies an association or connection with Egypt which it is not, because the words "Jew" and "Hebrew" did not come into existence until after the "Afrim"/"Ivrim" people (i.e. the word "Afrim"/"Ivrim"--is an akan word of Ghana that means breaking off from the main group) went off to Europe.
Any reference to these words in the ambiguous biblical account of Man walking the Creator thru history is in "afterthought" and purposefully intended to fool the very elite!
