Easter Sunday Question: Can White People Accept a Black Jesus?

Today is Easter Sunday, the day that Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. What better time is it to ask the question: Why has Jesus been depicted and accepted as a blond hair, blue eyes, white man over the years?

We know that when Religion is combined with science, the garden of Eden is in Africa. It is a scientific fact that the human race started in Africa, no denying that. So if the bible says Adam and Eve were created in the Garden of Eden then we know that Adam and Eve were Africans. Furthermore, if God created men in his own image then we know that God must look like the Africans he created. We know that Jesus was in the beginning because the Christian Holy Bible says so. Christ is referred to as the word and John 1:1 tells us: “In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God.”

So why then do we continue to see the blue eye, blond hair, white Jesus? Because had they rendered Jesus as he truly looks, white people would not have accepted him. That’s is a fact that is not only visible in religion but can be seen in man other areas of life.

It is similar to president Obama when you think about it. If both his mother and father were Black Kenyans, would he have gotten enough white votes to win the American presidency? Probably not, he needed to have a white mother in order for most Whites to vote for him. Let’s look in music, Eminem has sold more records than any other rapper but is he really better than a Tupac, a Nas or a Notorious B.I.G? Most real rap fans would say no, but whites who are the biggest buyers of hip-hop will embrace what looks more like them. That is the reason Macklemore won the Grammy over Kendrick Lamore. Even though Peter Tosh, Dennis Brown and Sizzla are as talented as Bob Marley, preach the same Rasta message as Bob Marley, they will never be embraced by most whites like Bob Marley is; because unlike Marley; Brown, Tosh and Sizzla does not have a white father.

So as you can see, whites embrace those who have more in common with them. So had Jesus been depicted like he really looked, there would hardly be any White Christians and Palm Sunday would most likely not be celebrated today in America today.
