Was Jesus Christ Black? (1563 hits)


Many African Americans believe that Jesus Christ was Black. They say that the Bible describes his hair as "like wool". To me, it doesn't matter at all. Jesus never emphasized his race to anybody, and always promoted equality amongst all races.

What do you think? Does it even matter what race he was? Also, if Jesus was Black - Why can't other races accept that?

By American standards he would have been called black for sure. I guess the only reason it matters is that in this country, for so long, people have associated black with negative images. This could be a positive image and could help reverse that thinking.
