Umm, Lilith is a myth...she is a Babylonian myth that the Hebrews adopted during their captivity...and no, she is not mentioned in the Bible...not unless you purposely mistranslate one small verse (Is 34:!4)...the hebrew word for "night bird" is the same as "night demon" the Hebrew word is "Liyliyth" which is sometimes transliterated rather than translated at "Lilith."
Lilith was a Babylonian demon, not Adam's first wife.
According to Strong's Concordance (a much better source than your "scholars") the hebrew word liyliyth literally means "night bird" or "night demon"
Strong's "Screech" : Isa 34 : 14 the s' owl also shall rest there, *3917
Strong's Hebrew Chaldee Dictionary 3917 : liyliyth. lee-leeth ; from 3915; a night spectre : - screech owl.
NOTE : Strong's does not say anything about either "Night Bird" or "Night Demon"; though it does give a root trace to 3915.
See Strong's 3915 : layil, or Isa 21 : 11 leyl, also laylah : from the same as 3883; prop. a twist (away of the light), i.e. night; fig. adversity:
--([mid-]) night (season).
She and Adam fought over who got to be "On Top" - "Night Monster, Night Hag, Night Spectre, Screech Owl" -- GET IT ?
NOTE ALSO : Of the seven different translations I have, only the "King Jimmie" refers to "Lee-Leeth" as a bird. Of the others, three flat out say "Lilith"; and one of them adds "Night Spectre" as in some sort of demon. Of the remainder, one says "Night Hag" which would indicate some sort of unpleasant female; and another says "Night Monster". Only the NIV sits uncommitted with it's "Night Creatures".
NOTE FURTHER : If "Qayin" can be translated as "Cain" without "Transliterating" the word, then why can "Lee-Leeth" not be said to be the original spelling of "Lilith" without "Transliteration" ? (other examples too numerous to mention also available).
female demon of Jewish folklore; .... In rabbinic literature Lilith is variously depicted as the mother of Adam’s demonic offspring following his separation from Eve or as his first wife, who left him because of their incompatibility. Three angels tried in vain to force her return;
NOTE : Since the Bible says nothing about Adam and Eve ever separating, I take that part to be erronius. Re the "Fighting" over who got to be "On Top" during sex, See : The Encyclopedia Judaica, or older versions of the Encyclopedia Britannica.
Encyclopedia Judaica :
LILITH, a female demon assigned a central position in Jewish demonology. She appears briefly in the Sumerian Gilgamesh epic ...
A transmuted version of this legend appears in the Alphabet of Ben Sira, a Midrash of the geonic period, which sets out to explain the already widespread custom of writing amulets against Lilith. Here she is identified with the "first Eve," who was created from the earth at the same time as Adam, and who, unwilling to forgo her equality, disputed with him the manner of their intercourse
. Pronouncing the Ineffable Name, she flew off into the air. On Adam's request, the Almighty sent after her the three angels Snwy, Snsnwy, and Smnglf; finding her in the Red Sea, the angels threatened that if she did not return, 100 of her sons would die every day. She refused, claiming that she was expressly created to harm newborn infants. However, she had to swear that whenever she saw the image of those angels in an amulet, she would lose her power over the infant. Here the legend concerning the wife of Adam who preceded the creation of Eve (Gen. 2) merges with the earlier legend of Lilith as a demon who kills infants and endangers women in childbirth.
Lilith is identified as a demon in the Dead Sea Scrolls (11QpsAp). The name Lilith was also inscribed on incantation bowls of Sassanian Babylonia. Although such bowls were not an exclusively Jewish phenomenon, some invoke rabbinic divorce formulas to exorcise demons. Belief in her erotic powers led some Jewish communities to adopt the custom of sons not accompanying their dead father's body to the cemetery because they would be shamed by the hovering presence of their demon step-siblings, born of their father's seduction by Lilith.
NOTE : The second of the two foregoing quotations is but one of MANY different explanations of "Lilith" presented in the Encyclopedia Judaica; but it is the one I believe to be correct. I also have the older version of the Encyclopedia Britannica floating around somewhere. NOTE ALSO : It is very easy to make misstatements, and very difficult to refute them. If you weren't what I regard to be a nice guy, I would not bother. NOTE FURTHER : Jeremy C. Springfield, (My "Expert"), is quite familiar with ancient Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic, and is currantly engaged in doing a "Literal English Translation" of the "Peshitta" wherein he compares it verse by verse to the various Greek versions extant. He is probably as knowledgeable as was James H. Strong; but has the advantage of access to many more recently found ancient documents.
Finally, with repect to the racial characteristics of the sons of Adam, See :

And explained it all to thee, my son. Enoch arose and said to his son Mathusalah: To thee, my son will I speak.; Hear my word and incline thine ear to the visionary dream of thy father. Before I married thy mother Edna, I saw a vision on my bed; and beheld a cow sprung forth from the earth (cattle a symbol of mankind – Ezek 34 22); And this cow was white. Afterwards a female heifer sprung forth; and with it another heifer; one of them was black and one was red. The black heifer then struck the red one, and pursued it over the earth. (Cain killed Able) From that period on I could see nothing more of the red heifer; but the black one increased in bulk, and a female heifer came with him. (Cain married Sister Awan) After this I saw that many cows proceeded forth, resembling him, and following after him. The first female young one also went out in the presence of the first cow; and sought the red heifer; but found him not. And she lamented with a great lamentation, while she was seeking him. Then I looked until that first cow came to her, from which time she became silent, and ceased to lament. Afterwards she calved another white cow. (Seth) And again calved many cows and black heifers. In my sleep also I perceived a white bull, which in like manner grew, and became a large white bull. After him many white cows came forth, resembling him. And they began to calve many other white cows, which resembled them and followed each other. (Noah’s family)
