In 300 (where he's black), he is necessarily a Persian messenger. The Persians had one of the largest empires, which spead into Africa and parts of Caucasian Europe. Therefore, there could be European (white) Persians along with African (black) Persians. The messenger was black, Xerxes was Arabic, and during the fight scenes you could clearly see white, arabic, and black soldiers all fighting together.

For the record, Persians (and modern day Iranians) are white. Hence the word 'Iran' having roots in the word 'Aryan'.

Although in 480BC, most armies in the age of antiquity used non-natives as footsoldiers, and there were many non-whites in the Persian forces, especially from the Nubian region in northern Africa.

I think the reason Xerxes I is portrayed black in the film is because he's supposed to be represented as completely different from the Spartans.
It's important to remember that he's not necessarily black in the actual film either, as the scenes from the film are just storytelling by the Spartan sent home to convince the city to go to war, who is an unreliable narrator as he is trying to bias the senate's opinion of the Persians.

What we see is not actually how it went down, we see the story of the character telling the senate what went down, if you get that. That's why he shows the Persians to be foreigners with mutated faces, and Spartans to be all handsome and muscle-y.
