Were the earliest civilizations made by brown people?

OK LET ME SET THIS STRAIGHT, I AM NOT OBSESSED WITH RACE, THIS WILL BE MY ONLY QUESTION ABOUT RACE, AND I MIGHT SAY STUPID STUFF THAT'S BECAUSE I'M NOT VERY INTELLIGENT BUT I DO WANT TO LEARN MORE.
So, Sumerians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Phoenicians, Israelites and the lot weren't white in the sense that they aren't European but they probably weren't black or east asian either. So they were probably middle eastern brown.
There's so much controversy around Egyptians obviously but their language is afro asiatic so they were racially afro-asiatic dark brown like Jesus?
The Greeks were white sure, but I once talked to this Greek guy online and he said that Greeks were light brown. So if it's neither white nor black, it has to be brown right? Unless you believe they were mongoloids.

You could have just said "what is the earliest Semitic/Middle Eastern/etc. civilization."

Which, IIRC, is still ancient Sumeria.

If I get a nice tan, am I a brown person then? I can also change my surname to Brown. I'd then be a brown Mr Brown. :cool:
