So Bathsheba's father was Eliam the Gilonite (A tribe of Canaan/Ham)
2 Samuel 11:3And David sent and enquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?
2 Samuel 23:34Eliphelet the son of Ahasbai, the son of the Maachathite, Eliam the son of Ahithophel the Gilonite,
Joshua 15:51 And Goshen, and Holon, and Giloh; eleven cities with their villages:
Giloh would have been a village of Hamitic, descent just as Goshen was of Hamitic descent, Goshen being in what today is called Eygpt which was called Mizraim in the bible
Genesis 10:.6 And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.
Egyptians also called Mizraim in the bible ARE a Hamitic people. Don't ever let anyone lie to you and tell you otherwise. Either you are going to believe what the bible says, or you are not. And if Egyptians were Hamitic, they were also then black! Although I say this knowing that ALL peoples, in the beginning, were black.
So here it is, Bathsheba was the daughter of Eliam who was from a tribe of Hamitic descent. Uriah the Hittite was the husband of Bathsheba. Hittites are also of Hamitic descent, Hittites being of Heth, and Heth being a son of Canaan, Ham's son.
Genesis 10:15 And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth,
So with both Bathsheba and Uriah being "black", or Hamitic, there is no way David would be able to pass his son off as the son off as being from the union of a black woman and black man unless David himself were black also. Remember, David got Bathsheba pregnant while she was still married to Uriah the Hittite, and David wanted Uriah to have sex with Bathsheba so he could pass the baby off as Uriah's to cover his adulterous affair, but Uriah refuse and David had him killed.
This once again brings me to Solomon. Solomon was the full blood-brother of the baby David and Bathsheba was going to pass off as Uriah's, the baby who could pass as a Hamite.
Many quote The Song Of Solomon in order to prove Solomon was a white guy while at the same time pretending as if race doesn't matter to them, but all the while trying to prove to you Solomon was white. Here's the thing about that, In the Song of Solomon, the translators decided to change a little Hebrew word "Tsach" which means dazzling and changed it to the word "Laban" which they then translated as "white".
tsach: dazzling, glowing, clear
Original Word: צַח
Part of Speech: Adjective
Phonetic Spelling: (tsakh)
Definition: dazzling, glowing, clear
HEB: דּוֹדִ֥י צַח֙ וְאָד֔וֹם דָּג֖וּל
NAS: My beloved is dazzling and ruddy,
KJV: My beloved [is] white and ruddy,
INT: my beloved is dazzling and ruddy Outstanding
So if the color doesn't matter, why would even the translators change Solomon's appearance to mean white, when we now know after investigation of scripture, Solomon, being the full brother of a child who to say the least could pass as having a black mother and a black father, and who actually did have a black mother, why would the translators try to make him into a white guy?
Some people want you to worship their image as the image of Israel, and ultimately as the image of a god.
