  •  you would be wrong... (6+ / 0-)

    Most of the crowd, as in almost all of them at that school, agreed with what I said and audibly made that quite clear, both during and after the talk…you might be surprised at how much many young kids at Catholic schools reject church dogma and question these things…

    and you too would be wrong about mere artistic convention, not to mention the real point of the white jesus dissuasion which is to explore the impact of his whitening and how it has been used to rationalize white supremacy thru the ages...

    Guilt is what you feel because of the kinds of things you've done. Responsibility is what you take because of the kind of person you are...

    •  oops…typo (5+ / 0-)

      should say, above "white jesus discussion." as for why it wasn't just about artistic convention, see my reply to black and blue above: the early representations of jesus were of a brown man…they were later changed, not because people were just guessing, but because they were quite obviously uncomfortable with the facts…you all write as if Europeans didn't know by then what north african and "middle eastern" first century jews looked like, which is nonsense…Herodotus had written about them long before, among others. They knew better...
