If we were truly united we would throw all this pseudo-racist science out of the window and rebuild our society from the ground up. The hell with
His name wasn't Jesus. It's Jehushua. And he didn't have pale skin. He was a raggidy bum. Spent 30 some years as a carpenter's apprentices, then
a carpenter. Doing construction work in that middle eastern sun. His skin had to be dark enough to not get sunburn. No hardware store back then to buy
Rome under Emperor Constitine converts to Christianity. "If we can't stamp out this heathen religion, we'll make like we're joining it! Then
twist it and control it from within! Muahahaaa!". Rome went on to conquor most of Europe. And bring civilization to Britian, and the rest of Europe.
They brought the religion too.
Later when the classical artists were commissioned to do their famous paintings of Jesus on the churches, halls, and castles, they had to make a

Later Europe conquors most of the planet. Brings their religious ideas to everywhere. Including their idea of Jesus. A cool, pale skinned, blue eyed,

laborer, with darkskin toiling with just a loincloth in the middle eastern sun for decades.

does matter to them! Pat Buchanon, Storm Thurmond, Ross Perot, Al Gore, Tipper Gore, Kerry, Bush, everyone including most dark skinned people, would
never worship a dark skinned saviour!
