    Mr. Farrakhan as usual distorts history, the Bible, and of course common sense to make a jackass out of himself. Jesus was a Jew (Semitic)... And Africans are Hamitic people's. Two different races. Genesis talks about this.
    Bottom line is this: what difference does Jesus' skin tone matter. The book of Revelation describes the present Jesus as quite glorified and not depicted as white or black. Jesus is Saviour period.

    I think it best Mr. Farrakhan stick to his own holy book and discontinue from erroneously quoting from the Bible, since he fails to realize The Song of Solomon is a poetic dialogue going back and forth from Solomon to the Queen of Sheba. If scriptures weren't taken out of context and instead read completely, it would be obvious to see that the "I am dark, but lovely" part, is Queen Sheba speaking. Also the Bible does say Jesus color was of bronze shade and his hair is like wool...A white European Jew does not genetically have that hair texture. However, look at the color of skin and hair texture of a Bedouin (Arabian ethnic group), or a true Palestinian, or Mizrahi Jews. That is what Jesus would have looked like since he was said in the Bible (same book Mr. Farrakhan is quoting) to be born in the Middle East.

    First of all...Jesus was of middle-eastern stock. There was definitely a Natufian culture that correlates genetically with modern syrians, and iraqis in the middle east predating the incarnation by 5-6000 or more years.

    Point two... his hair was "white like wool" not nappy like wool, not like black wool. He was not European nor "Black." He was middle Eastern.

    Refutation 3: Hebrew and Aramaic were not necessary for communications with west africans. This is a lie. People have over-generalized the relationship of Afro-Asiastic languages with Niger-Congo and other families. The similarities are superficial. Ayin as a phoneme is not Aleph. Uvular Q is NOT Kh. The verbs inn Coptic, and Semitic languages do not even form words the same way as Wolof. The similarities are superficial and we can trace the development of the languages from earlier non-egyptian forms through comparative linguistics. If Hebrew were necessary, it would only be as a stepping stone to Berber, Punic, or another related language. Arabic, not Aramaic was used more frequently since biblical times.

    Third: THERE ARE ACTUALLY EARLY ETHIOPIAN ICONS SHOWING A MIDDLE-EASTERN CHRIST WITH A PROMINENT NOSE AND SYRIAN FEATURES.

    Jesus was basically like a modern "arab." FREE ASSHUR!

    For all the Ignorant and Angry folk out there. The very first depictions of Jesus Christ were Black.
    In fact, there is a coin from the time of Constantine which have Constantine on one side (obviously European) and a picture of the one believed to be Christ on the other. He was a Black man with 7 locks on his head.
    When Michael Angelo was asked to paint a picture of the last supper with white people, he told the Pope that there were NO MODELS for such a painting.
    The Pope told him, "You will think of something"
    He did. He used his own family as the models for the painting.
    Don't get mad! Look it up!
    By the way. When the Portugese were sent to West Africa, they had to learn 2 languages to communicate with the people they found there. Hebrew and Aramaic. Why is that?
    Don't get mad! Look it up!
    When the Arabs were asked by a Missionary who those people were, the Arabs told them "Those are the people of the book.
    Which book is that?
    Don't get mad! Look it up!

    It is not important for you to know my name.

    Honestly im not muslim nor do i believe in the nation of islams teachings but regardless king solomon was black because the bible says so period. people cant argue with scripture and this is important to me a Black man or any other black because we have know history. Now with this knowledge given that should be preached in every church across the globe because now children and adults can read the bible as our history rather than the history of the jews or hebrews. Now we can look at it as our history its more personal.

    If the color of Jesus doesn't matter, why has
    all of white Chritianity, including the Mormons
    falsely present Jesus as Caucasian. In view
    of this lie, please present biblical and scientific
    proof that Jesus was white.

    Who cares what color biblical characters are. Let talk about today. Muslim Shiites against Sunnis in Pakistan, Muslims against Hindus in India, Muslims against Christians in Nigeria, Muslims against Buddhists in Thailand, Muslims against Copts in Egypt, Muslims against Christians the Philippines, Aceh (Indonesia), Kosovo (Serbia), Muslims against Maronites in Lebanon, Muslims against Jews in Israel, Muslims against Hindus in Bangladesh, Muslims against Russian Orthodox, Muslims against Greek Cypriots, Muslims agains Zoroastrians in Iran......

    Are you serious? The Catholic Church is hugely responsible for the false misrepresentation of Jesus around the world. When Min. Farrakhan corrects the many that have been told, you have a problem. Focus on stopping your priest from harassing little boys. Farrakhan told the truth, Jesus was not White, he was and is Black.

    If you want to believe that he is the devil, than believe that. I don't understand why the Catholic is expressing view about Farrakhan. What do you believe? Keep it going, all sides. What do you believe in you heart? Do you like Blacks, whites, Latino, Asians. What is the problem? I'm tired and have love in my heart for most. I think we should own what we believe. I'm not here to change anyone mind but. I choose not to hate anyone and I'm a better person for it. IF YOU BELIEVE, SPEAK OUT, TELL THE WORLD, AND OWN IT. I have grown in the past few years and some of the things that my Mom and Dad told me was not true. That's why I keep asking what do you believe. Just my thought.
