Jesus was a Galaean Jew - He looked like every other middle eastern man.

The area is filled with dark olive skinned men and woman.

i doubt Jesus ( Peace Be Upon Him) was black because Christianity and Islam , Im not sure about Judaism, He was a Israelite and Sent to the Children of Israel

however i doubt he was the typical blued eyed almost blonde haired white as hell man that some biased ppl portray him to be

The afrocentrist movement was started in order to parody the Eurocentrist movement. Who knew it would take hold, but its just as silly as saying jesus looked like this

This representation is quite different from the typical lithe, long-haired, light-skinned and delicate-featured depiction of the man Christians consider the son of God.
That's really offensive. Pretty much calling us ignorant racists.
Most Christians that I know of believe that Jesus was dark or olive skinned, wore peasant-type clothes, and drank from a clay pot (Holy grail) (not a gold chalice).

Its like if I brought up Linnaeus' classification of the different sub-species of human, and said that Europeans are gentle and intelligent while blacks are lazy and negligent - and said that this is what evolutionists believe.

Also, we know what Jesus looks like because He appears in trees and waffles all the time.

So he'd be black because people think that he is white?

Answer my question, why would Jesus be black? Why would he be white?


I'd say by most Middle-Eastern Jews he'd be more white than black, but still a dark complexion.

And the point of the afrocentrist movement was to point out the fallacy involved in displaying Jesus as the crown wearing, gold chalice sipping honkie that he was portrayed to be as since DaVinci.

Use something in the past (Davinci, Linnaeus) to say thats what people believe in the present (White Jesus, Racism).

where did i say he was black?

he would be white because he is gods son, and some people think that god is white. some people think that he is black.

let me put this in a way so every one of you that believes in him can understand, HE IS WHATEVER COLOR YOU WANT HIM TO BE because god exists only in your head.

my ignorance? how about the people who believe that someone actually came from "god" and miracles are real.

some people think god is a girl, some people think god is a duck billed platypus, some people think god is black. they are all correct. why? because god exists only in your head.

But in reference to the historical Jesus, it doesn't matter whether or not he was the son of God in regards to the color of his skin.

It is fairly hard to hold the belief that a man named Jesus of Nazareth who was the son of Mary didn't exist during that time period.

Heh, Its offensive for Christians to press their belifes on "my people"(free them lawl) in a Christian majority. Athesits do the same thing granted, but the only pictures I saw of jesus at my methadome were white. He could be talking about what he's seen. Go figure.
