Is there anything to back up that the Jews were really black? Is there any sources that refute this? I see so many people claiming this.

No. There is no historic evidence that the Black Hebrews, who seem to be referenced in the question, are Jewish. I am not aware of a single historian who takes this alternative version of Jewish history seriously See this article by R. Dr. J. David Bleich which discusses their history from their inception in the second half of the 19th century.
This is distinct from the issue of Ethiopian Jews, for example discussed in the article.
