Why are people still portraying Jesus white, when we know he is Black?


There are written and archaeological evidence proving Jesus is a black guy. The bible itself wrote, Jesus skin is the "color of burning wood.". The modern image of white Jesus was created during the 5th century and is really a painting of the then Catholic pop's son. During the Crusades the Catholic destroy image of black Jesus worship by Christians in former East Roman Empire and replace with their white one. Now in the 21st century, why are people still worshiping this false image of Jesus, constructed by a bunch of dark ages racist?

    Great observation, that would probably be true Jim, if there was such a verse - there isn't. Search for yourself - easy to do online https://www.biblegateway.com/quicksearch/?quicksea...

    I am saying the modern image of white Jesus, is constructed with racist intention. And therefore I believe, it is a highly inappropriate and offensive way to depict Jesus.

    The picture on the right looks to be a mug shot of someone arrested for drunk and disorderly. The guy on the left looks holy. I'll go with him.
