Jesus Was Truly Black

What color was Jesus? Some say he was a Jew and therefore just like any other modern Jew.

However, according to Aylmer von Fleischer, the author of "Retake Your Fame," Jesus Christ was an Essene, Blacks who were different from the White Jews of today. The Pharisees, Sadducees, Gentiles etc. were Whites. Whites Jews in Palestine emerged with the invasion of Alexander the Great.

These Jews later fled Palestine to Europe due to the brutal Roman invasions.

The Jews of today are mostly the Khazars, who later adopted Judaism. Anyone can easily research on the Khazars online. They are not the true Black Hebrews/Israelites/Jews.

We must also remember that Europeans were worshipping (and still worship) the Black Madonna and Child.

What color was Jesus?


The very interesting book, "Retake Your Fame," is available at, and also here:

What does it matter?
is that going to save you, or make you feel better?
is it a competition for the races? like "Jesus was black, so that makes black people better" or "Jesus was Jewish, so that makes Jewish people better"
You concern yourselves with symbols and your interperatations of the symbols,
the only reason day is day is because the symbol of daylight happens to be in the sky, what if it was blackened?
try to understand "religeon" in direct relationship to EVERYTHING else in existance.

This is not exactly a new or groundbreaking topic on ATS:

jesus was a black man!!!
Jesus portrayed as caucasian?
What did jesus look like??
the shrine of the Black Madona
lets just get this straight
Jesus portrayed as caucasian?
Jesus was truly an African!

There are a lot more, and they can be found using the oft-neglected f%3BLH:90%3BLW:270%3BGL:1%3BBGC:b5b5b5%3BT:%23303030%3BLC:%23cc0000%3BVLC:%23660000%3BALC:%23ff0000%3BGALT:%23330000%3BGFNT:%23606060%3BGIMP:%23000000" target="_blank" class="postlink">Search Feature.

I'm not saying it isn't an interesting or significant topic, but seriously, this one in particular as just been beaten into the ground.

For what it's worth, I am confident that Jesus had a dark brown complexion, like pretty much everyone else in the area, but that he was semitic.

Weird....Oh well. I think it's more of a persona we adapted onto Jesus over time. Just like for some Santa Clause is African American, or caucasian, or asian, ecetera. It's just the way we see him. Not on what the truth is, he's interpreted as perfect, so it matters not the color of his skin, but the contents of his heart.

Jesus has been named the top black icon by the New Nation newspaper. Their assertion that Jesus was black has raised eyebrows in some quarters - so what colour was he?
Just as no one will ever produce proof for the existence of God, the question of Jesus's colour may always be a matter for personal belief.

Was he white, white-ish, olive-skinned, swarthy, dark-skinned or black? There are people who believe he was any one of those shades, but there seem to be only two things about the debate that can be said with any degree of certainty.
First - if the past 2,000 years of Western art were the judge, Jesus would be white, handsome, probably with long hair and an ethereal glow.

Second - it can almost certainly be said that Jesus would not have been white. His hair was also probably cut short.

I've read this article some time ago it's right here..

This link here talks about the possibility of Jesus being thee you go ....At the end it really does'nt matter...

It is a good read so's'o..

"Semitic" is not satisfactory, as there can be Black, White or mixed Semites. The term Semitic was coined by a German to classify the so-called descendants of Ham.

Jesus Christ was BLACK.

But what does it matter? What exactly are you trying to prove? Jesus Christ was Semite. The defintion of a Semitic jew is a person that originated from Asia and partly Africa.
The term Semites is applied to a group of peoples closely related in language, whose habitat is Asia and partly Africa. The expression is derived from the Biblical table of nations (Genesis 10), in which most of these peoples are recorded as descendants of Noah's son Sem.

So in definition, a Semite could range in color from Dark to Light. It doesnt matter. Semite refers to the geographical origin, not the racial makeup.

Jesus has been perceived as blond hair, blue eyes to dredlocked and brown skin. But as I stated earlier, what does it matter? You believe in christainity because of the religion, not the skin color of the creator. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Ok lets go over this one last time. Jesus was neither White nor Black. He was from PALESTEIN. Have you every seen the Skin Color of an Arab - on TV perhaps? It is BROWN. This is the Color that you get when you mix White & Black Together! The Arabs & yes even the Israelis are
DESERT PEOPLE! The Middle East is One Big DESERT!!!

The Real Scandal is in that in USA & Europe apparently "Jewish" = Semitic but Arab does Not = Semitic. Well I have news for you - ARAB DOES INDEED = Semitic!

Who cares what Color Skin or Race the Savior Jesus Christ was? Race & Religion are two totally different Issues. Learn from what
Jesus DID & SAID - not his Color!

Judaism & Islam & Christianity are RELIGIONS. Human People are simply Human People!
