Was Jesus black? No, He was not. This is one of those things where people have twisted something written in the Bible to fit their own idiotic points of view. This is definitely nothing new. People years ago were killed for suggesting the Earth revolved around the Sun, even though it doesn’t say anywhere in the Bible that the Earth was the center of the solar system. Men took it upon themselves to distort things to their liking.
Some black theologians, particularly those from the Black Liberation Theology like Barack Obama’s former pastor Jeremiah Wright, have said that Jesus was actually black. Where do they get this idea? From Revelation 1:14-15 where it says Jesus had hair like wool and feet like brass. With something so small black religious zealots went “aha! Jesus was black!” Problem is in that vision from John is that Jesus was a candlestick holder holding the seven churches of Christ. His feet were of brass probably because that is where He was connected to the brass of the holder. His hair also being like wool could be just the color, but Jews do tend to have thick hair. Moses also had his hair turn white after he saw God. Man, you really have to twist something really hard to come up with that meaning Jesus was black. Jesus was a ruddy-complected Jew!
Of course what’s almost as ludicrous is the historical view of Jesus by white people that He was a pristine, blonde-haired, blue-eyed man of pale skin. Dumb. Jesus most likely had darker complected skin, brown eyes, and dark brown or black hair. History’s vision of Jesus is nearly as wrong as the contention that Jesus was actually black. Who comes up with this stuff? Aie aie aie.
