Depictions of the people of Accad in ancient Babylonian inscriptions describe the Accadians as "black," while the Semitic Babylonians are described as "white" - among the earliest references to the so-called "races" of the human race (i.e. the descendants of Adam and Eve) who spread, or were spread, throughout the world. This included even across the vast oceans; the many modern-day nations of North and South America, from Canada and the US state of Alaska at the northernmost, to Chile and Argentina at the southernmost, were founded first by the descendants of Japheth who merely walked a few miles across winter sea ice between Asia and Alaska and then spread southward over the centuries. Their descendants became known as the "Indians" (a name erroneously given to them by the first European explorers who thought that they had arrived in India) and Eskimos (this has been verified by modern-day DNA testing that proves that the native people of the Americas originated in China). Then, many hundreds of years later, the descendants of Shem and Ham arrived and "discovered America" (and all of the people who were already there) after long and perilous sea voyages from Europe and Africa.
After the flood, the descendants of Noah's son Ham became the founders of many nations that became well-known to Bible History, including Babel and Accad:
"These are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth; sons were born to them after the flood."
