FOR THE RECORD…For those of you who wondered about the image of Jesus for the Hollywood Entertainment (YES ENTERTAINMENT) Series 'THE BIBLE" that everybody …Including throngs of Black People…have fallen in love with, this is how he looks.
Though many of you are hesitant to say Jesus is Black, he was born in a region where there are people of color (may it be of middle eastern appearance or Ethiopian). Jesus was a man of color. And though you can still worship him regardless of race, don't be gullible enough to believe Jesus is white with blue hair and brown/blonde eyes in the middle of a desert. ALL PERSONS in THE BIBLE… THE religious book for many, and my religious book too…lived in Africa and near Africa. And they had the physical appearances of those who lived in Africa and near Africa.
Now, at what point do you question whether a Religious Series is historically correct and gets it right? Because it is a series about The Bible does not mean Producers will get it right. Producers of a series like the Bible will not care whether they get it right because they know many of you will tune in anyway. And sponsors do not care as long as you watch. Some of you would consider it blasphemous not to tune in. Many of you will use this series to teach your Sunday School classes and Bible Classes as the Gospel Truth and become authoritative in the barber shops and hair salons and never question the authenticity or the accuracy of the series. And you will be as complicit as the Producers who are seeking and getting a huge payday with your viewership.
When you hear the regular sound of Cha-Ching, it is because the Producers of The Bible are feeding you a Big Gulp of "Don't question the historical authenticity and historical accuracy of the Bible Series" Kool-Aid, and many of you are drinking it ALL DOWN…TO THE LAST DROP…while they rush to the Bank!
Remember that when your sons and daughters and granddaughters and grandsons and nieces and nephews etc. ask you questions about The Bible as they watch with you. If you will lie to them about your religious history, what will you do about your cultural history?
THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES…RLHSR.
