Why did God decide to make Jesus black instead of white or asian ?

Is it because he wanted a black to lead the humans into the promised land and felt it was too tall a task for another race?

This is a question i have asked myself for years

Jesus was Jewish. Jesus sure wasn't an ancestor to African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves).

Youre wrong. Jesus was a black jew.

God himself wanted it that way for some reason, the question is why

How many black carpenters do you know? A black man couldn't even build a dog house by him self.

TheOne, left wing afrocentrics have said & currently say that Jesus was a black Jew.

But (With all due respect), all left wing afrocentrism has been debunked by all mainstream historians & anthropologists.

Now, clearly, there are black Jews. These would probably be the most notable black Jews. Some of them are now deceased. But, most of them are still alive.--- Sammy Davis Jr., Whoopi Goldberg, Lisa Bonet, David Blumenthal, Nell Carter, Drake, Goapele, Meagan Good, Lani Guinier, Kidada Jones, Rashida Jones, Zab Judah, Jamaica Kincaid, Boris Kodjoe, Yaphet Kotto, Lenny Kravitz, Lauren London, Saoul Mamb, Rain Pryor, Tracee Ellis Ross, Rovetta, Maya Rudolf & Shyne.

In addition, there are also the Ethiopian Jews. The Falashas.

There are black Jews. But, the vast majority (Very vast at this) of Jews are White.

The Ethiopian Jews, the Falashas go way, way, way back. But, Jesus's lineage did not have any ties or connections to the lineage of the Ethiopian Jews.

Jesus was White. Most of all, Jesus would have been considered White in the United States (US). In regards to how Americas federal gov't classifies & categorizes people according to race.

I do see your premise here.

But (With all due respect), foreign born blacks ((Afro-Latinos (Afro-Dominicanos, Afro-Boricuas, Afro-Cubanos, Afro-Colombians, Afro-Ecuadorians, Afro-Peruvians), blacks from the Anglophone (Jamaicans, Afro-Trinidadians, Afro-Guyanese, Afro-Belizeans, Virgin Islanders), blacks from the French / Creole speaking Caribbean black nations (Haitians, Martiniqueans, St. Lucians) & Africans (Nigerians, Ghanaians, Senegalese, Ethiopians, Eritreans & Somalians))

are A LOT different than African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves). Especially in regards to culture.

Most foreign born blacks are appreciative of America.

Most foreign born blacks value & cherish work ethic, family values, morals, decency, education, law & order.

Most foreign born blacks have honor, pride, humility & respect about themselves.

Foreign born blacks are A LOT different than African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves).

Tragically, America has the lowest & lowliest black life form in the form of African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves).

The historical Jesus, to have qualified to have been the actual Messiah would have to have come from both the line of David and the line of Ruth who was a descendent of the incestuous relationship of Lot with his daughter after they fled Sodom.

Perhaps, and this is just my humble opinion, this inc3estious lineage is to illustrate that the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel includes everyone, even descendents of the people in Sodom and Gomorrah!

So to say that Jesus was any particular race is not accurate because if Jesus was the Messiah, he was not pure blooded anything!

Just like all of us here on planet earth, Jesus carried the pigment variations that allow each of us to be a unique color as an individual. In this sense all of us are colored people. Black is not a skin color and neither is white!

Some fundies claim that being black is the result of the curse put on Cain with the identifying mark.

Too much pigmentation is not a bad thing, but to little pigmentation is, and an albino can occur in any race of humans!

So perhaps it would be more logical to conclude that the mark of Cain was to turn his descendents blotchy white so they would be forever plagued with sunburn instead of having a healthy skin pigmentation to prevent sunburn!

Perhaps your comment is offensive to those who value their hate. Their hate gives them definition. You are threatening what they think they are by pointing out it's absurdity.

What you are saying above, don't you think that you are throwing up some double talk & hypocrisy?

You are trying to sound "anti-racist". Yet, you yourself have said very racist things. Against Whites.

One such example.---- Your previous post, post #7. On this thread.--- http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/TATB4D8... .

So, please don't try to front like you are anti-racist. When, in fact you are racist. Very racist against Whites.
