Is olive skin really referring to a creamy coloured skin tone?

We are told that olive skin refers to people who have a cream coloured skin tone. A skin tone like the pictures of the people below:

The truth is: an olive complexion have always been in reference to black skinned people, with the deepest, darkest hue. There are two types of olives in the world, a black olive and a green olive.  There is no single person on this planet that has the colour of a green olive, but there are people with a jet black olive coloured skin tone. Olive skin means jet black skin. Below are pictures of people who are very dark and a picture of black olives:

If you have seen the pictures, decide for yourself  whether this reference is wrong or not.

China Plans 8,000-Mile High-Speed MagLev Railway Linking Beijing to US East Coast

China is considering a plan to build an 8,000-mile (13,000-km) high-speed magnetic levitation railway from Beijing to the eastern seaboard of the United States.
The state-owned Beijing Times reports the rail line would begin in Beijing and run northeastward through Siberia, Russia before tunneling through the Bering Strait into Alaska and then proceeding in a southeasterly direction across Canada and into the northeastern United States.
The trip would take approximately two days at an average speed of 220 miles per hour (354 km/h), and it would require the digging of a 125-mile (200-km) undersea tunnel to cross the Bering Strait between Russia and Alaska. That’s four times the length of the Channel Tunnel linking Britain and France.
