Amazingly, some people do believe this.
I'm in agreement with AlphaNumeric giving the most intellectually sound answer earlier here. All religions/thought-lines have their problems to one extent over another. Nowadays a religion is "what you do and believe in" personally, simple as, and each person has his or her own religious model in their own head they follow. Count how many people there are, and that's how many different opinions and more, are possible for each thing. In the same way, are the number of beliefs=religions. What's held or done by a person cannot be ascribed to anything but that persons own belief, understanding and doing.
The reference cites a people who were enslaved for centuries and fought against white barbaric, tyrant and primitive supremacists and thus they obviously developed their own "understanding" and "traditions" to explain skin color difference, origins and why evil existed against them on the basis of nothing but skin color. You should visit Africa some time, their Jesus was also a typical African with Rastafarian hair in case you didn't know.
Probably the most ignorant thing still around is how Western religions depict their forefathers such as Adam, Eve, Abraham, Jesus and so on to all be white skinned and looking like artistic impressioned Romans, whereas they were known to be Middle Eastern and many of them to be African; brown skinned/dark haired, Middle Eastern/African people, even the Egyptians. Just like how the Greek, Phoenician, Macedonian (etc) used to look and many still are, such as most native Jewish people. Even Italians and Spanish are not pale skinned/pale eyed/pale haired, they are dark eyed, dark haired and more browny tan skinned. I was born typical American Christian where such things are very deep in their root beliefs.
White skin tones with pale hair, and pale iris are believed to be a defective mutation in genetic research and our modern biological understanding, which came about only due to the tribes of our ancestors who moved into the Northern Hemisphere for survival; colder, sunless and harsher environments. You can see Scandinavia for example, and how blonde hair and pale eye color/skin color is a common theme for the natives there due to the environment and less so in many other places further South. Furthermore, you can witness ANY country and people who when they move to colder Western countries from hotter more Southern countries, they start to become paler over time, through generations and develop similar facial features to those they reside around.
This is part of human complexity and perfectness in many ways; adaptivity.
When you compare how little of this there was before British rebels chose to create another country on an invaded land (US/CAN) and colonize Earth, you can see black/brown hair, black/brown eyes and skin color that is pale brown to dark brown is what prevailed everywhere in the world regions. China, Japan, Mongolia, Russia (Serbia), Australia, Indonesia, Fiji, all Asia, Spain, Middle East, Africa,, Americas, all the way to Greece and Yugoslavia. Above that you had bits of modern day EU, Scandinavians, Slavs and Bulgars who were opposite colored; notably paler.
Not that any of it should matter.
