Belief Blog: Sorry, Jesus isn’t white


WEEK, AND SOME PEOPLE THINK KELLY SHOULD HAVE KEPT HER COMMENTS TO HERSELF.>>WHEN I SAW THIS HEADLINE, I KIND OF LAUGHED AND I SAID, THIS IS SO RIDICULOUS. YET ANOTHER PERSON CLAIMING IT’S RACIST TO HAVE A WHITE SANTA. YOU KNOW, AND BY THE WAY, FOR ALL YOU KIDS WATCHING AT HOME, SANTA JUST IS WHITE, BUT THIS PERSON IS JUST ARGUING THAT MAYBE WE SHOULD ALSO HAVE A BLACK SANTA. JUST BECAUSE IT MAKES YOU FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE DOESN’T MEAN IT HAS TO CHANGE. YOU KNOW, I MEAN, JESUS WAS A WHITE MAN, TOO, BUT IT’S LIKE, WE HAVE — HE WAS AN HISTORICAL FIGURE, A FACT, AS IS SANT RAW, I WANT THE KIDS WATCHING TO KNOW THAT.>>SORRY ABOUT THAT. EVERYBODY’S KIND OF LAUGHING HERE. I WANT TO BRING IN JAMEL, A STAFF WRITER AT THE DAILY BEAST, AND THE COEDTER OF THE BELIEF BLOG, ERIC. LISTEN, I PUT THIS ONLINE, GUYS, AND I SAID, WHAT COLOR IS JESUS, WHAT COLOR IS SANTA CLAUS? EVERYBODY IS GOING CRAZY. WHAT COLOR ARE YOU, WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU? THAT’S THE MOST RESPONSES I THINK I HAVE GOTTEN IN A YEAR ON SOCIAL MEDIA IS WHEN I PUT THAT QUESTION UP. WHEN I POSTED SOMETHING LAST WEEK ABOUT SOMEONE WHO LOOKED LIKE JESUS SELLING CHRISTMAS TREES, THE INTERNET WENT CRAZY. SO JAMEL, IN AN ARTICLE YOU WROTE, YOU SAID KELLY THINKS THE IDEA OF A RACIALLY INCLUSIVE SANTA CLAUS IS UTTERLY RIDICULOUS AND SHE’S WRONG. WHY IS SHE WRONG? EXPLAIN THAT.>>I THINK SHE’S WRONG BECAUSE THERE’S ALREADY RACIALLY INCLUSIVE SANTA CLAUSS. I GREW UP WITH A BLACK SANTA CLAUS. ALL OUR SANTA CLAUSS WERE BLACK. NOT EVERY FAMILY HAS A WHITE SANTA AND THAT’S PERFECTLY LINE. I THINK ISHA HARRIS’S IDEA IS FINE, SINCE THERE’S SO MANY AMERICANS, MAYBE WE SHOULD TAKE RACE OUT OF THE QUESTION ISN’T BAD AT ALL. IF WE’RE TRYING TO ERR ON THE SIDE OF EXCLUSIVITY, IT MAKES SENSE, BUT TO GET OUTRAGED AT THE IDEA THERE’S NON-WHITE SANTAS IS RIDICULOUS BECAUSE I GUARANTEE YOU RIGHT NOW IF YOU WALK INTO THE HOME OF AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN PERSON ALMOST ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY, YOU WOULD FIND A BLACK SANTA CLAUS AND A BLACK ANGEL AND A BLACK JESUS.>>I THINK YOU WOULD FIND A BLACK SANTA CLAUS IN EVERY HOME BECAUSE SANTA CLAUS IS BLACK IN BLACK HOMES AND SANTA CLAUS IS WHITE IN WHITE HOMES. SANTA CLAUS IS MEXICAN IN MEXICAN HOMES. SO LET ME JUST TELL YOU, SANTA CLAUS TO ME IS A BLACK MAN. NOW, ERIC, I WANT TO ASK YOU THIS. I WAS WITH HER. I UNDERSTOOD WHAT SHE MEANT IN THE BEGINNING, I THINK WHAT SHE MEANT. I DON’T WANT TO PUT WORDS IN HER MOUTH. BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE DEPICTION OF SANTA CLAUS, THE POPULAR REPRESENTATION OF SANTA CLAUS, IF YOU LOOK AT KRISS KRINGLE, IT’S A WHITE DEPICTION. I UNDERSTAND THAT. THERE ARE MANY WHO QUESTION THE AUTHENTICITY OF SANTA CLAUS AND JESUS. WHERE SHE LOST ME WAS THE JESUS THING. WHAT DO THEOLOGIANS SAY ABOUT THE COLOR OF JESUS’ SKIN?>>YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT SOMEBODY FROM THE FIRST CENTURY WHO LIVED IN THE MIDDLE EAST. HE WOULD HAVE HAD AN OLIVE COMPLEXION, IN ALL LIKELIHOOD. WE DON’T REALLY KNOW. WHAT WE DO KNOW IS HOW ART’ingS HAVE DEPICTED HIM OVER THE YEARS. LIKE SANTA CLAUS, OFTENTIMES IT’S ALMOST A MIRROR OF WHO IS DOING THE DEPICTION HOW JESUS TURNS OUT. WHEN YOU GO TO COUNTRIES IN ASIA, YOU’LL SEE AN ASIAN LOOKING JESUS.>>I WANT TO SAY, ERIC, TO ERIC AND JAMEL, WHEN YOU MENTIONED, JAMEL, SANTA CLAUS IN BLACK FAMILIES, YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT ORNAMENTS AND PICTURES. BUT NOT EVERY HOUSE I WENT TO HAD BLACK SANTAS. THERE WERE SOME WHITE SANTAS HANGING UP. AS I WAS RESEARCHING THIS, I WAS RESEARCHING SANTA IN AFRICA, THE TRADITIONAL AMERICAN DEPICTION OF SANTA STANDS EVEN IN COUNTRIES THAT ARE BLACK. SO ISN’T IT KIND OF UP TO PEOPLE TO DECIDE WHO THEIR — WHAT THEIR SANTA AND JESUS LOOKS LIKE, JAMEL?>>I THINK THAT’S ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. YOU KNOW, WHAT YOUR SANTA OR JESUS LOOKS LIKE IS UP TO YOU, WHATEVER YOU FEEL MOST COMFORTABLE WITH. I WOULD AGREE THAT WHEN YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT THE HISTORICAL JESUS AND KELLY DURING HER SEGMENT, SHE TOOK A MOMENT TO SAY THAT WE HAVE HISTORICAL EVIDENCE OF WHAT JESUS LOOKED LIKE. AN OLIVE SKIN MANS BECAUSE HE WAS FROM FIRST CENTURY PALESTINE. HE LIKELY HAD CLOSE CROPPED DARK HAIR AND DARK EYES AND LOOKED LIKE HIS PEERS AND CONTEMPORARIES. ON THAT, KELLY IS JUST INCORRECT, MISINFORMED.>>ANYONE WHO HAS STUDIED THE BIBLE AND ANYONE WHO KNOWS ABOUT THE HERITAGE OR ROOTS OF JESUS KNOWS HE WAS A DARK SKINNED PERSON AND WASN’T A WHITE MAN. NOT PROBABLY, WASN’T A WHITE MAN. HE WAS A DARKER PERSUASION.>>HE DIDN’T COME FROM EUROPE, DIDN’T COME FROM N

  11. She should read her bible, that stupid white bitch. Then she would know his right race. But it's understable that's what she was taught from her parents.

  12. Jesus wasn't magic…sorry there were some men called Jesus the magic didn't really happen and there's no evidence there's a God

  13. Jesus not white, bulshit what did it say when he came down from the mountain after the Transfiguration it said he became white as snow and hair white as wool so bulshit

  14. Sorry but you're all wrong it says it right there a scripture that he became white as snow wider than what he normally was

  15. Skin of brass meant like an extraterrestrial lit up like a light being and literally meant that not a black person or a Muslim sorry you're wrong

  16. When God said this is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased it states plainly in the Bible that Jesus was made white as snow and hair like wool so do not try to change the word of God

  17. LOL "Jesus didn't come from North America he wasn't white" Well genius on the right. Native Americans are not white either. What an ignorant fool comment. He must have failed history.

  18. A quien le importa de que color es Jesús lo que importa es que Jesús es el hijo de jehova' Dios y el dio su vida por el perdón de todo todos nosotros aquí en la tierra y el es quien va a gobernar por tiempo indefinido muy pronntoen el futuro debemos mantenernos alertas porque el va a venir como un ladrón ninguno de todos nosotros sabemos cuando ni a que hora arrepientamos a hora que estamos conscientes el es nuestro Rey y Jehova' es su padre no importa cuál Religión tengamos como bandera mucho cuidado lean la Biblia y mediten en ella y sabrán que Satanás el diablo nos tiene ciegos quiere que queramos en esta Religión y en aquella porque El sabe que le queda un corto tiempo y todo el que no entienda lo que dice la Biblia o el que la entienda va a tener su galardon

  19. White Christians enslaved and trade Africans in the Americas.
    All most Christians say is, well Christians got Slavery abolished.

  20. @William Eaton you still have yet to answer me what Miriam's complexion was prior to her being TURNED PALE

  21. Don your a stinky finguerd wierdo. Is it ok if we change black figures to white ones should we have a white 2pac or should we change the Black Princess Tiana into a white cause it dosen't make me feel any way that she's not white

  22. I meant a friend who directed me to spell caster called Papa Egbe online who help people to solve their relationship and marriage problems. I was really skeptical before i wrote to him and he told me not to worry about anything, that i should give him a day for him to cast a spell for me and after 2 days i was really surprised my ex called me and started begging for me to take her back . That is how my ex came back to me and she no longer think of other people, but me and me alone and am happy my money was not wasted. Write Papa Egbe on papaegbeherbalhome @ gmail com I'M a testimony believe it of not. I HAVE DONE MY PART BY PASSING OUT THIS INFO To people outside having love issues and marital problems.

  23. Jesus is from the middle east and for centuries arabs have ben living in that region. So it is very simple to answer that question. Olive color ? Look at italians greeks and arabs they have a olive skin complexion. He looked like an arab maybe from a darker complexion but I dont think he was very dark skinned. But that does not matter to me. He was a prophet and one of the best humans in this world whom we have to follow. And the last prophet which was send to human kind was prophet Muhammed. He was also from the arab peninsula.

  24. Why is so many Atheists and Non believers in this comment section?

  25. Why are these men darker from left to right? Is there something I’m missing

  26. I'm a white women Jesus is black!! I have had visions from the Lord! He isn't white!! Sorry to break the news

  27. It doesn't matter to me about colour of skin for anyone is these days and why does it matter to you people Im use my magic powers to turn all of you into all blue skin people that way you can't complain about skin colour anymore

  28. Jesus ant white,unless we call Arabs white,Jesus was born in the Asian continet,with our Arab brothers…so jesus,n David n Jacob,n aaaaal these people we talking about..are of Arab origin,not black,not white,so there's no black or white Jesus,there's Jesus n God the Father,but most probably..Arab Jesus

  29. I don't know about Santa, but Jesus definitely didn't look like the Kenny Loggins' version that hangs on White Christian's walls in their Churches and houses. Never mind the fact that Jesus was born in the Middle East and therefore was dark-skinned and had kinky hair, not White with blue eyes and the hair of an 80's rock star. Reality is real…

  30. We are all shades of brown unless you are an albino or a white piece of paper.

  31. Regardless, the "white man" implented a plan that is so ingenious it will never be reversed.

  32. Santa as white originated from Chris Kringle a man in Germany he'd buy presents for the children in his area and left it at there front door that's where Santa started but Jesus is black hair like l and feet like burnt brass

  33. “Jesus was a White man too?! Are the 🦊 Jew’s Network RACISTS out of their minds!!!” Everyone knows that Jesus was an olive skinned Middle Eastern man and his eyes were definitely not BLUE!!! 🔥🇮🇱🔥🐍🔥💀🔥🐷🔥🐀🔥

  34. First of all you gotta consider the source witch is rasict fokkk jesus did not say he had stringy dog like hair .he said wool like blacks 2 of all Santa is a meth his white for white family's black family's know there black daddies bring the toys. white man brainwashing doesn't work no more. black know God is black. Try satin that's the work you like to do. rasict and killer's fit you better. hee hee😁😁😁🤣🤣🤣🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡

  35. No more Christmas for you Israelites. Stop celebrating these pagan holidays

  36. Jesus was NOT a historical "figure" He is God in the flesh…God incarnate…not some made up fairy-tale figure…and santa is an invention of CocaCola….don't even dare to mention santa and Yeshua together in the same sentence….one is HOLY and the other a symbol of a man-made pagan tradition that Christians should not be observing…Fox news is giving out false information…be wary

  37. what confusion and what a bunch of crap…a white santa a black santa…WHO CARES !!!! what's eternally important is Yeshua our Savior…noone is to know what He looks like…RC's depict Him as a white man who looks more like a girl…taken from the part of the world that He was born in, His skin would have been darker with brown eyes and dark brown to black hair…read Scripture, it will tell you…people have to stop taking God as a joke..one day every single person is gonna be standing before Him….

  38. Jesus is a Jew. If he was black his hair would be kinky. Look at the shroud of Turin. CNN spreads lies

  39. Who Here believes in Jesus(as a historical figure) I would Like to politely ask him some questions,either in this comment section,or more easily on Instagram: ivan_tucman

  40. Racism is dividing us. Don't fall for their triccs. Jesus came from Africa so what color you think he is? Now stop focusing on the wrong thing. God bless you all. ❤️👏

  41. United Nation has voted already that Christianity came from Islam. How is Jesus white? He is Islamic!!! Crazy white people. Not all… but some.

  42. I I HONESTLY do not care, my only question, why is CNN so offended at the notion that jesus may be white ?!?!
    If he is white when you meet him, what are you gonna do ?!?!
    And don't tell me you KNOW because you don't unless you're over 2000 years old!!!

  43. everyone has their traditions,their beliefs.for color to be an issue isnt right.

  44. I’m Eritrean and Jesus is Israeli Jew and he is white period
    How can he be black in Middle East lol
    Idiot white women

  45. The way people refer to the middle East is beyond me. They always leave the fact that it's located on the continent of Africa out of the equation. Admit it or not, middle easterners are Africans! They are from middle east Africa! It's as if the term is used to distinguish Arabs from black Africans. Black or Arabic, they're all Africans!!

  46. Obviously Santa is White. That's just fine. He is a fake and goes back to the European times. Jesus was born in Israel from 2 Israeli people…..He was and is BROWN….

  47. Jesus was a Black man who was hung like all the other black men who have been hung!

  48. I hate this lady with all my heart and soul someone should open her brain tickle it she is either Stone out of her mind or she is a racist bastard

  49. Jesus was middle eastern so he was brown. Fucking moron. Santa Claus is based on a historical figure St Nicholas who was from modern day Turkey so he was white yes. Who cares

  50. Jesus was from a part the world where it is impossible for him to be blonde with blue eyes more likely for him to be Mediterranean olive skin Sephardic type. But none of this really matters it what he was about that should should be important. And this why this world is in such a mess, the hypocrisy of religion.

  51. Jesus was a Galilean Jew and referred to as the Nazarene. Archeologists say Judaeans of Jesus's time were closest biologically to Iraqi Jews of the contemporary world.
    (Matthew 26:47-56) Judas Iscariot had to point Jesus out to the soldiers among the disciples – presumably because the men all appeared similar to one another.
    The Nag Hamidi scriptures gives a good insight to Jesus's teachings, showing that his background was very heavily steeped in Jewish philosophy and law. Jesus was also referred to as Rabboni and Rabbi definitely was a Jew religiously.

    As far as Santa Clause, supposedly he was a 4th century Greek Catholic Bishop named Saint Nicholas born around 280 A.D. near Myra in Lycia, a province of the Byzantine Anatolia (now located in Turkey), he was known for his charitable gift-giving and countless miracles. He more than likely had… olive skin tone, brown eyes, and grey/silver hair.
    It's just really sad, Fox doesn't even attempt to deliver anything fact based. They prove insincerity and abject moral poverty by not reading up on what they are discussing.
