A WHITE JESUS GIVES A WHITE MAN THE UPPER HAND
The Civil Writer Magazine
It's a privilege to be associated with Jesus's skin color because it produces an expectation of being distinguished and favored. Just as many Black Americans felt privileged to be of the black skin color of the 44th president of the United states for eight years. As an African American walking the streets of Cairo Egypt during the presidency of Barack Obama it brought a favor from the Egyptians that ordinarily wouldn't be there right down to my family and I being escorted by an armed guard back to the Cairo airport. Maybe it could be a carryover from the Black Egyptian president Muhammad Anwar el-Sadat who on October 6, 1981, Egyptian President Anwar el-Sadat was shot by Muslim extremists during a military parade commemorating the 1973 Yom Kippur War against Israel.
Jesus's color has single-handedly bestowed power on the white man rather than his own biological Jewish race for simply being portrayed as white over hundreds of years. How does skin color make a difference on a God? Ask the different races occupying the different countries who are displaying their God(s) with their same skin color. Color is an object of expression that can display power, matrimony, royalty and positions. The same goes for skin color. Yellow means smart, brown means hard worker, black means lazy and white means power in society sadly. There would be no white Christians if Jesus had brown, yellow or black skin. There would be a show of privilege and power among anyone of these groups if Jesus had their skin color. In life nothing powerful shows an affinity to a race characteristics suggesting a relationship, especially a resemblance like white Jesus.
