Well, yeah . . . but you don’t go telling white folk that
A group is criticizing Gibson’s The Passion because Jesus is portrayed by a white man. The group (The New Black Panther Party, which can only lead to its credibility) states that Jesus was black.
Well, that whole thing occurred somewhere around northern Africa/the middle east if I recall. I’d say Jesus was more olive skinned. And I saw this thing on Discovery Channel once that tried to piece together what Jesus would have looked like. They concluded he’d be olive skinned, have a large-nose, low brow and have short, dark curly hair.
I do tend to doubt that he looked like Chris Cornell.
Update: It occurs to me that I should now time it to see how long before this post offends someone and I get hate mail or nastygrams: You hear that, Ethyl? He thinks Jesus was an A-rab.
