The Etyptians and Sumerians most likely would be Caucasians, but they wouldn't be white Caucasians, they'd be brown -- more suitable colouring for warmer, desert climates.
I don't think there is any basis for that conclusion. Some Israelites (David, for example) are described in the Bible as "ruddy and fair", and they lived in these same areas.

From 5,600 to about 4,000 would be enough time for the nation to ge a tan. We witness the same in Iran. They are much purer Aryans (Aryan = Iran) than Germany, but they have a light brownish complexion. The point I'm trying to make is that the coloured bit is daft, they were Caucasians, most likely C with a tan.

ruddy and fair could be a lighter tinge, not necessarily a lack of melanin. Kind of like Pathans.
