Not that the color of God should make a difference but the bible does say that God was white. The reference to white could also refer to the purity of god rather than his skin color.
His (God) head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire.

Its quite simple, we are discussing about history. If you don't care about it, don't read it, noone is poiting a gun to your head. Some people would prefer to be informed about history and know about the past. If you feel threatened because people talk about the past don't read it.
Textpeople often want God to look like them because it makes it easier to relate to him, in the context of this discussion I think that point is pretty relevant

Cu#e, everyone here will tell you I firmly believe Jesus was a black man and I have been making threads and typing posts here about for nearly three years and this is the advice I give you:
People here aren't going to believe you.

Not that I necessarily believe this, but it has been asserted, through the ages, that other than what the Bible mentions of Jesus and a few comments of the Jewish historian, Josephus, there is lacking historical evidence to say that 'Jesus' was real. IF this is true, what difference does it make whether Jesus was black, yellow, white, or olive skinned? Would this not pretty much make what you are laying out here pretty much insignificant?
But it wasn't this kind of irony about a black Santa that animated the comment I heard while strolling through the mall that day. No, it was pure racial resentment and nothing else leading the white woman, child in tow, to say to her friend, "don't you think it's silly to have these Black Santas? Everybody's trying to be so P.C. I mean, come on, a Black Santa? Everyone knows Santa is white."
Her friend agreed. Everyone knows Santa (a make believe entity for those who haven't figured it out yet) is white. The insistence on the racial purity of this entirely fictional being struck me as hilarious, right up there with the folks who send get well cards to their favorite soap opera characters when they fall ill on the shows. Ronald and Nancy Reagan are reported to have done this once. Fantasy, reality, ah screw it, who cares? I'm starting to realize the awful truth, white people are certifiably insane.
