No, he was the colour of the those people from the middle east where North Africa, South West Europe, and East Asia meet.
I'm trying to work out the importance of his colour. Do we not have enough problems with people trying to determine whether he ever existed; whether he is the sun of a mythical being, and now you're throwing this in to foment more strife.
A better question is how did this question get into Business & Employment? But here's an answer.
In the Bible it is written "hair of wool and skin of bronze"
A contemporary writer produced a script for a comedy show based on that information as the conversation revolved around Jesus' complexion, Redd Foxx's character Fred Sanford in the 70's, Sanford & Son replied: "How can anybody live in the desert for 33 years and be white."
The oldest christian community was found in Ethopia long before Christianity arrived Rome. This is one reason why Helena the mother of Emperor Constantin send parts from the origin cross from Jerusalem to Ethopia.
Generally Ethopia plays an important role in religion since King Salomon married a women there and still today there are living descendants.
Many part of our todays bible go back to scripts that were found in Ethopia four centuries ago written in GEEZ and were translated by Germans.
In Ethopia it is widely believed that Jesus as well mother Mary were black.
