This doesn’t change the power of Yah, but If art is art and faith is faith, why did we and still do have segregated churches? Some will say his color never mattered. But then answer the question that if it didn’t, why did they change early depictions of a black Jesus to a white Jesus and then in the same vein oppress black slaves with a white Jesus? God on the throne appeared to be a man of color. .
Revelation 4:1-3 .
1 After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this."
2 At once I was in the Spirit, and behold, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne.
3 And he who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian, and around the throne was a rainbow that had the appearance of an emerald. - Revelation 4:1-3
He looked like Sardius and Jasper. I.e he was brown. He appears on the throne as a shining man of color. Historically, no white man was going to worship the same man that looked exactly like the men they put in chains. To change the image of the savior to a people in order that you oppress not just them but also their faith is the HIGHEST form of oppression man can think of. It’s disgusting that it wasn’t enough to put us in chains, they manipulated our outlook on who our savior really was. So I say to all of the people that say they DONT SEE COLOR. JESUS DID NOT IGNORE HIS OWN COLOR. NEITHER DID JOHN WHO WROTE REVELATION. GOD SHOWED HIM COLOR. HE DIDNT HAVE GRAY SCALED BLACK AND WHITE REVELATIONS. THEY WERE FULL OF COLOR AND THE MAN ON THAT THRONE WAS A MAN OF COLOR. So to all of you with this man sitting up in your churches. Do your history. You’re worshiping the image of fallen man. Cesar Borgia. I’ve got receipts y’all. .
And to address the notion that there are different depictions of Jesus in other cultures - the difference is the other cultures didn’t do this to enslave black people. 🤷🏾♂️ Back then, white supremacists used scripture to manipulate people of color in order to justify slavery. They’ve even used the CURSE OF HAM, NOAHS SON TO JUSTIFY IT.
