White Jesus

A lot of people have taken offense to the Western depiction of Jesus Christ as some blue-eyed, blond-haired white guy. Over the years, however, I’ve realized that various cultures around the world have depicted Jesus Christ in their own ways, and that this blue-eyed, blond-haired white surfer dude was just the Western European depiction of Him.

Now Shaun King, aka Talcum X. aka Martin Luther Cream, aka Some White Dude Pretending to be Black, wants all Western depictions of Jesus Christ to come down, because they’re symbols of white supremacy.

But as I said, various cultures around the world have depicted Jesus in their own way. For example, in Korea and Japan, Jesus looks and is dressed like a Korean or Japanese person. In fact, this website below has a list of all the different depictions of Jesus:

The Various Depictions Of Jesus Around The World

Today there are more than 2 billion Christians around the world, representing about a third of the global population. The geographic distribution of Christians around the world is so widespread that currently, no single continent or region can be considered a center of global Christianity.

Isn’t it fascinating? My favorite is the Japanese paintings of the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus. Both are beautiful and are typical Japanese artwork, and I have a weakness for Japanese everything, because I lived there as as a kid.

All of them are beautiful, however, and incredible and full of diversity and it just made me feel so good to see our Lord and Savior through all these different eyes.

Of course, Jesus, being from the Middle East, probably wasn’t a blue-eyed, blond-haired guy, but He probably didn’t look like a Korean or Japanese dude either.

Of course I disagree with Talcum X’s bullshit call to tear down statues of Jesus. The Western depiction of him has nothing to do with freaking white supremacy. This is the left’s continued war against Christianity and Western values overall.

Hopefully they will leave Christ the Redeemer alone, which is one of my absolute favorite statues in the world (along with the Statue of Liberty, of course). I don’t think the Brazilians will let them tear it down.
