    Well, if he was born in Bethlehem 2000 years ago, he probably was not black... but, he probably was what some people call "swarthy"... as in, a person of color, not a white European.

    They CLAIM it because they are completely confused about what is and what is not Black. Race relations in America still have never relaxed enough for the races to mix comfortably and openly and our separate groups remain separate and we're still divided by crazy myths about each other. I come from the slave owning class of Old White Southerners and grew up in the Confederate capital of Richmond. The nicest White people with the best manners never insult the Black people to their faces but they do whisper behind their backs and regard them with a little condescension and a little suspicion. Yet they trust them and rely upon them and eat things that they cook and set before them, yet wouldn't want to eat in their homes or their neighbourhood restaurants, which is illogical. The same hands preparing the exact same food needs the magical context of being served in a restaurant or home they are used to. The fault is not entirely on their side but they hold the keys to the systemic oppression and have forgotten that they're holding them. VioIence and anger, no matter what your justification and theory, never in fact loosen that unconscious grip. The somnambulist pharoah only tightens that cadaver grip without waking. The lower meaner sort of White that actually interfaces with the Blacks is the vicious dog of the Rich and exacerbates matters whenever given reminders that they're the dogs of the Rich, even when the order is to stand down. Middle class Whites actually sit down at dinner and listen to the stupid father pontificate about how "all" the Blacks are on welfare and "none" of them has a job, and "all" the blacks have "taken all the jobs". And no-one present hears the inherent contradiction. Every one of them has been rung up at cash registers by Black people, nursed in hospitals by Black people and seen Black police and firemen and military. Blacks, for their part, have always been self protective because this goes back to the 1600s and has never stopped so when something that would help everyone, including themselves, is about to happen, like the worst criminals in their Neighbourhood are being chased by the police, Black women get in their cars and drive around to tie up the police and give the bad guys a chance to escape. They instinctively self protect and it can be ironic, but how can they help it when there's systemic oppression and murder unseen by the better class of Whites. And most Southerners and African Americans are Christians who have precious little understanding of what the Jews are. To be frank, the Jews are better and worse than non- Jews think. They're not manipulative and evil and cruel but they're not as charming and attractive as they consider themselves. Smart, they mispronounce things in their third generation greenhorn way and, because they dominate movie making and teaching, you wind up with professors who tell you that we "really don't know how Shakespeare pronounced English" way back then, even though you are from a sixteenth century colonial family and grew up talking exactly that way at grandmother's house in the country and pray with the Bible of King James. People, by and large, are usually not as bad as they seem to each other. Of course, we all have criminal elements among us, which we routinely deny and attribute exclusively to the other guys. Frankly, this crazy misinformed and polarised society is needlessly tearing itself apart and would be safer taking some doses of LSD and tripping together like folks did in the Sixties. And YES, Jesus was Jewish and NOT Black OR a blond and blue-eyed Anglo Saxon.

    Jesus would've been perceived as white by Black people and Black by White people.  I think this was by design.  God deliberately created a body which looked "average" to unite different people.
