Jesus wasn't black

EUR Web: Jesus wasn't black

Reading this piece in EUR Web, at first I was pretty apprehensive:

Preface: I am Christian. This is written from a Christian standpoint. If you are of another religion and don’t agree with what I’m saying from a theological standpoint, respect my gangsta enough to not indulge me in an argument about God…please…

Now, I agree with his one view that "black" isn't really BLACK....

You see, unfortunately, I am not black. There are lots of different kinds of blood in our family. But here in the United States, the word ”Negro” is used to mean anyone who has any Negro blood at all in his veins. In Africa, the word is more pure. It all means Negro, therefore black. I am brown.

I skimmed through the rest of the article, and none of the points really caught my interest but that one.

And I agree. FREE YOR MIND, suckas. Jesus is as much black as He is every other race in this world. Like it or hate it, it really shouldn’t matter at the end of the day.

You know, its funny how the writer of the article went out of his way to do a little "scripture digging" to refute the idea he was black. However, he failed to refute the idea that he is white, a powerful idea that though it can easily be refuted, is pretty much the dominant idea in our society. Ever walk in a church lately?

  1. hey man let me just clear that thought right up for you, Jesus was of Jewish descent, so he wasnt black (he wasn't really a true white either) its that simple and that easy. But what you need to remember is that the color of Christ is not important its His teachings and just the fact of who He is that is.
