Colours and Shades

Mankind are of many colours and shades
even though their origin is said to be the same.
How can this be?

Genetics offers a complex explanation;
but I prefer a much simpler solution,
plain, free from confusion:
When God created Adam
he mixed the black clay of Africa
with the yellow clay of China
and the white and red sands of Arabia;
God formed him and breathed life into him.
Genetics agrees that these colours
must appear in Adam’s descendants,
either in pure or mixed hues.
So there you have it, brother and sister!
