Jesus’ skin color

There are a couple of things I find amusing about our Afro-American brothers: The fact that they all seem to think their roots are buried somewhere under the Ethiopian soil, their preference of lighter skin over darker, and the fact that “a genre” in it’s own right has been adopted especially for them. I call it “the affirmative action genre”. It’s where a nice and hard working black man gets into trouble (loses his job, family or part of body) through the carelessness of a decent-looking white man and goes all cuckoo (homeless, jobless, crippled) until careless-whitey finds himself unable to sleep, realizes why, decides to make it up to the brother, gets everything fixed, and “they all live happily ever after” (Bucket List, Resurrecting A Champ, Changing Lanes, John Q, the list goes on). Here is an article on BBC on my other Afro-american fascination a friend posted on his facebook profile: So what colour was Jesus? Enjoy!
