Jacob's son Esau was the father of the Edomites and he is said to be "red" Genesis 25:25.
We might say of a ruddy complexion, as David was, 1 Samuel 16:12.
This is why Blacks in the southern USA are sometimes observed spooning and eating red clay out of river banks. They are trying to get back to the original colour.
