The Bible Describes 'Jesus' As Black, So Why Do Our Churches Depict A White Man? by Rossikk(m): 2:26am On Jan 02, 2016
If there was a 'Jesus', he had to have been black/brown like the people in the said region were at the time - not that white caucasian caricature Nigerians paste on their church walls.

I'm sure the christian bible describes him as having ''hair like lamb's wool'' and ''feet like burnished brass''.

Is there a better description of a black man than that?

''His feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace..''. (Revelation 1:12-16)

The colour of bronze is brown. When it is heated at high temperatures in a furnace, it turns virtually black.


Example:
..................................

Daniel 7:9 ESV

“As I looked, thrones were placed, and the Ancient of Days took his seat; his clothing was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool''
.

Black people are the ONLY race on earth with wooly hair.

Wool



Isn't THIS the person christians should be regarding as their saviour?

That was in a vision and if you noticed, he had white hair which Negroes don't

Common sense tells you that since he came to Palestine and was in every way a Jew, he'd have middle Eastern looks which means neither white nor black.

Why?

You are shamefully ignorant. Perhaps you'll like to tell us which race these men belong to:

Actually, ''common sense'' tells you nothing if you knew nothing in the first place, but RESEARCH tells you a lot. Fact is that in ancient times, there were black populations in heavy numbers in northern Africa, Europe and the Levant. Not surprising since black Africans were the first civilized people who travelled and settled the world long before white people existed.

Also, you normally suspend your ''common sense'' as a christian anyway, believing all sorts of fables, so how come you swiftly apply ''common sense'' when the bible tells you your saviour was black? You mean you apply your racism?

Not only His hair was white like wool, white like snow, but His head was too.

Rev 1:12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
Rev 1:13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
Rev 1:14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
Rev 1:15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
Rev 1:16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

By the way this is describing the Angel of the Lord, and certinally not the human Jesus.

Why would his hair be of a different color from his feet?
He was a semi-albino?

Rev 1:14 on most versions like the English Standard Version actually says "The hair ON his head was white like wool". I think your version must be one of those queer versions created by American rednecks. Also could you explain why his feet, arms and body are described as looking like "burnished bronze". If all his body looked like burnished bronze, ie black, why would he have a white face?

No.. it wasn't because they "don't regard blacks". It was because they "didn't regard themselves" as worthy, without stealing the histories of older civilizations and claiming same for themselves.

What is this nasty piece of manure yammering about? What did you expect Africans to do about whites 'whitewashing' history? Declare war on them for altering images? You need to return to the mental home you escaped from. The only sane means of battling disinformation is to counter it with true information, which is what we're doing.
