Making Jesus Black Doesn’t Make Him Real

From both atheists and theists alike: Stop it! I get it, we all want to be right in one way or another, but arguing over what color Jesus skin was doesn’t make him any less fictional.

This is the scripture a lot of people are hung up on:

…and among the lampstands was One like the Son of Man, dressed in a long robe, with a golden sash around His chest. The hair of His head was whitelike wool, as white as snow, and His eyeswere like a blazing fire. His feet were like polished bronze refined in a furnace, and His voice was like the roar of many waters.… –Revelations 1:14 – 15

Black Christians, it’s as if you need more validation that you’re important, you have to argue over the color of Jesus. You don’t need a fictional fairy to feel good about yourselves. All life started with Black people, that should be well enough.

Also, stop with “the white man’s religion” because it is not. A lot of you equate Christianity with good moral standing when it’s not, but you knew that. Arab Muslims were conducting slave trades hundreds and hundreds of years before Europeans sailed the west coast of Africa, but more on that later. So we can’t keep using the ‘white man’ as the scapegoat. As quiet as it’s kept, William Wilberforce fought against the slave trade in Parliament all for the sake of Jesus. Yep, a white man, but somehow, that’s irrelevant and a fictional fairy isn’t.

Black, orange, green, or blue, Jesus would still be a figment of your imagination.

PS: Fuck a narrative. You don’t need a narrative based on lies.
