    I think black Jesus is cool. Especially with white hair.

    A Black Jesus is fine with me. Let me challenge you guys though. Would you be ok with a Black God? Amen wrote a song Black God.

    Um...
    Do not the majority of Christians believe Jesus to be God?

    Maybe Jesus came from the Underdark, just like Drizzt.

    According to the bible he wasn't all that attractive, or all that everyone ever wanted. Could be wrong but either way, we all still bleed the same color, red.

    Isaiah 53:2 “He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

    Whatever he looks like he would not look good to you or to me or to whoever sees him. We would look away. We would not like the feelings that his visage gave to us.
    "...he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not...." Isaiah 53:3 Chapter 53 is the suffering servant chapter that is referred to in the gospels.

    If he did exist, why in the world would it matter what he looked like?

    That's the color for "no data"

    Edit: But I'd turn grey after a full 6 months no sun.
