Separation/racism symbolism first in Bible

Do not use without permission.

What do you think of this idea of racism leading the biblical Creation Story in Genesis on which Jewish and Christian belief systems are based?

Black people (darkness) were first on the Earth but were considered to be living in a void (uncivilized, chaotic people without culture or sense of community).

Then came light (white people with knowledge) which was heavenly and supreme (good) when compared to darkness.

Dark and Light were then separated by God (the Creator) into Night and Day. (Segregation)

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
