    confirmation of the claim that Jesus was white. I found one at no less reputable a source than the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Not only were he and the apostles white, I learned from reading another online bible, that they spoke English. So there.

      It's said definitively in "The Night Before Christmas" that he's "a right jolly old elf."  All of these pictures of him as an obese caucasian must be wrong.  He may have put on a few pounds, resulting in a "little round belly", but I know from watching several movies by Peter Jackson (whom I believe is a dwarf) that elves are tall, slight of build and have pointy ears.

      Pointy ears = NOT caucasian

    •  Actually, Jesus, St. Nicholas, and India Indians (0+ / 0-)

      all Caucasian.  Being Caucasian doesn't correlate all that well with skin color.  There were at least two waves of humans coming up out of Africa.  The first wave headed east along the south coast of Asia and into the Pacific islands.  The second wave had to go around north of the first wave and settled most of Europe and northern Asia.  The blacks stayed longest in Africa and came out only relatively recently, many of them prisoners of war sold into slavery.
