What race was Jesus Christ?

Posted by: Black-Jesus

Despite my name, I've always thought of Jesus as probably a bit of a dark shade of Indo-European/Middle Eastern/subAsian, but Jesus is usually depicted as white and a lot of black people are under the impression that he was darker than the dark side of the moon, so, you know.

Black-Jesus: What? He was. He was from the Levant.

Yeah, but, I mean, what does that have to do with his race? Whatever, it's cool

Indo-europeans are in India and Europe... And I don't think either of his parents were Roman. Indo-european does not equal middle eastern as middle easterners generally do not speak Indo-european languages and are not descended from the Proto-indo-europeans in the steppes or Anatolia.

You're right, Indo-European wouldn't really apply to Jesus, but that's why I inserted the "Middle Eastern" part, it's just that people usually group "Indo-European" with "Middle Eastern"

@Rhodesia79 and what would that be?
triangle.128k says2015-04-08T12:15:33.9245264-05:00
@Rhodesia79 Looks like a bigoted butthurt racist can't accept the fact that your lord is in fact middle eastern.
reece says2015-04-08T23:15:20.5645117-05:00
@triangle.128k It's funny when someone needs to result to trolling so everyone would just leave their previous opinion alone.

Just because you live in the middle east doesn't mean you're middle eastern. Is Obama Native American? If he talks with Elizabeth Warran he might think so, but he is clearly Kenyan African. Just because you live in America it doesn't make you a Native American.
Black-Jesus says2015-04-11T10:19:40.2770162-05:00
So you're saying that Jesus Christ, born and raised in the middle east, born to Mary and Joseph, natives of the middle east, from a long line of middle eastern jews, was white? Are you saying that at some point, a bunch of tribal Europeans traversed 1,500 Km to go to the middle of nowhere in Nazareth and Bethlehem, adopted their language, their culture, and their history, all for absolutely no reason?

@Rhodesia79 Going by what Black-Jesus said, where the hells the proof?

Oh wait, there is none. It's all based on faith.
