YOU CAN NEVER LIVE OR BE LIKE JESUS AND NEITHER CAN JESUS BE LIKE YOU
The year 33 AD, Jesus was living in a different time with different challenges. He was nearly the same age of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dr. King was 39 when he died and Jesus was approximately 37 when he died if you look deep into history.
Jesus lived in a homogenized society with homogeneous laws. A homogeneous society is such a society where most of the people share the same type of cultures values, language, ethnicity and religious system. There were inner-city problems at that time with alcohol, drugs, prostitution, gangs, abortions and prejudices but not racism.
Society wasn't as eclectic then as it is today with different cultures intertwined together presenting different challenges. Jesus had a father and a mother so he came from a dual parent society of control and a one religion town. Why can't you live and be like Jesus because Jesus was not an African American dealing with implicit biases. Implicit bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. These biases, are activated involuntarily and without an individual’s awareness or intentional control because being Black you see white privilege followed through with racism.
Jesus didn't have to harbor in his subconsciousness feelings and attitudes about other people based on characteristics such as race, ethnicity, age, social norms and appearances, he was a Jew in a Jewish town with a Jewish religion. Being Black presents a whole different group of challenges. Lack of family structure: According to a 2002 study, 70% of all African American children were illegitimate and that number rose from 23.6% back in 1963 because that was the year when welfare became a right according to the constitution, which made having husbands redundant.
Dangerous cities with high African American Populations: Dangerous cities like LA, Oakland, Cleveland, Baltimore and Detroit where gang violence and crime is an everyday occurrence with a high population of African American people. The victim mindset: Nothing holds an African American back more than seeing themselves as a victim which Jesus did not have to deal with in a homogeneous society.
African Americans make a sizable portion of prisoners: Studies infer that 52% of homicides are committed by African American individuals.
Due to this high incarceration rate, every 1 in 9 African American children you pass on the sidewalk may have or might have had a parent in prison.
The question is not can you be like Jesus but can Jesus be Black for one day or a nigger for one day in the south.
