Cush was the eldest son of Ham and was the brother of Canaan (who settled in the land of Israel before the Hebrews arrived). The Kushim are the dark people of Africa.

Maybe the Oz police just didn't pay attention during their high school history classes. At least one of them came to his senses and apologized.
