I wouldn't take the mural from the Book of Gates so seriously, as you can see the image you posted is just a copy of the original.
Here is an updated version of the image:
You can clearly see that the Hyskos are now deep brownish complexion in this redone, instead of being pearly white like the "Libyans". I also must point out that such depictions redone by Westerners are a prime example of confusion regarding anthropology. You see, the very depiction itself seems to not necessarily depict both the Libyans and the Hyskos correctly. In the original portrait the Libyans are blurred out, while the Hyskos are pretty much bleached at this point and could of been darker, when you look at some of their patches. Also, the choice for the reddish complexion of the Egyptian man seems to be more of a symbolic nature, rather than a realistic one.
