There is no reference about Ham's wife's colouring. It was Moses who married a Cushite woman. The genetic makeup of the first man, Adam, was such that
extensive variety could develop among his offspring—in such things as skin color, hair color and texture, body size and facial characteristics. This variety was increased by language and geographical differences. Concerning geographical isolation the Encyclopedia Americana explains: “When lands inhabited by two or more populations are separated by seas, mountain ranges, deserts, or other obstacles to travel, the members of these populations are perforce confined to their respective territories. . . . races will be separated by gene frequency gaps corresponding to the geographical boundaries. . . . this condition is approached in Africa, where the Sahara Desert forms a boundary between the European (white) and the African races. The Sahara is very sparsely inhabited and difficult for man to traverse; it constitutes an isolating agent of long standing.” Thus genetics, language and geographical barriers help to explain why distinctive racial groups appear in all parts of the earth. According to the Bible, all humans descend from Noah, through his three sons Shem, Japheth and Ham. Genesis chapter 10 lists 70 descendants of Noah saying: “From these the nations were spread about in the earth.” (Genesis 10:32) One of the many ways in which these nations have been classified is with reference to skin color. In the skin of all normal humans is a blackish brown pigment called melanin. Noah and his three sons all had a measure of this dark pigment. From Shem came the Babylonians, the Assyrians, the Jews and the Arabs who vary from fair to light-brown skin. The descendants of Japheth, who include the Indo European races, vary from light skin to dark brown. As for Ham (meaning swarthy or sun-burnt), some, but not all, of his descendants had dark skin. The Egyptians, with light- brown skin, descended from Ham’s son Mizraim. Ham’s son Canaan was the forefather of the light- skinned Canaanites. In agreement with this, Dr. Hughes, a professor of anthropology at the University of Toronto, said: “On every continent, and in every geographically defined race, there is a considerable range of variation in . . . skin pigmentation, . . . the Tamils of South India are considered by many anthropologists to be members of the Caucasoid [white Indo- European] major race, yet in skin pigmentation they are darker than many Africans .” All divisions of mankind have a dark pigment in their skin, some to a lesser, others to a greater..

Where is the evidence for this claim ?

This question is funny sha. Well, I think it was during the course of building the Tower of Babel. The people wanted to build a high-rise to reach God in heaven(how preposterous).

God then confused them by changing the unified language to various languages. Perhaps God changed some skin colours too.

Genesis 11

if to you, that's what it is, fine!!!! buh... what've you gotten to learn? If it's an ordinary 'constitution' dont you think that's the most efficient 'guide book' in history? I'm sure if you can be as smart as i'm 'expecting' you to be, you can imbibe it's principle for the baseline of 'your organisation'. if you can 'create' better one, i think you'll have followers down the history lane...
"arrant nonsense" right??

That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.
