Race Warriors Decry ‘White Jesus’

In their attempt to politicize everything along racial lines, race warriors are now denouncing traditional Christianity as an invention of white people seeking to dominate and control “people of color” (POC).

Writing for the Blavity website, billed as “the Buzzfeed for black millennials,” race warrior Danni Roseman proclaims her progressive alienation from Christianity after being “bombarded with images of this sandy-brown-haired, blue-eyed, White man”—namely, Jesus Christ.

In her angry essay titled “My Beef with White Jesus,” Roseman lashes out at missionaries and preachers, and all who have propagated the myth of White Jesus. All their preaching is just one more instance of “White people telling minority peoples what to say, and how to behave,” she states.

“By beating individuals into submission, and calling it love, White Christians have brainwashed, and whitewashed generations of POC’s traditions,” she announces. Never mind that for most black Americans, those traditions are intimately linked to the black community’s long-standing ties with the Christian Church.

For race warriors like Ms. Roseman, everything—even religion—is first and foremost about race. (She also has serious issues with Jesus’ being a “man,” but says she will deal with that at another time.)

This is Total Nonsense. Jesus was from the Middle Eastern Region of the world and His skin color was not white. BUT why on earth does this even matter? Jesus is the Son of God and ALL must come to Him for forgiveness and Salvation in order to enter the Kingdom of God. There is NO other way. Don't leave earth without Him... Enough is enough. period.

Jesus was from the area of the Jews , he wasn't an African Jew , however , it is my opinion he may have been a little darker than most Jewish people because of his time spent outside. Having said that , Jesus was the son of God , have you now pulled the race card on God Almighty? You are some pathetic people!!

Whats the problem with just portraying Jesus as historically accurate? I mean, portraying him any other way would be dishonest... and dishonesty is or of a sin, isn't it? If Christians care about the truth, then this matters and his image should be corrected.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God (the Father).
He was born to the virgin Mary, who was a Hebrew.
She and He were not what we now call Jews.

They were Hebrew by birth, but He was divine (God)incarnate.

He erased race and all divisions of men.
He save all of us and promised to provide our souls with everlasting life in Heaven after our death.

Glory to His Name!

Merry Christmas

The left needs racism or they will cease to exist.

She's obviously not a Christian, as she does not understand the concept of the Trinity, and the roles that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit embody. If she understood that basic concept, color and race would not even be an issue!
