Arguing about whether Jesus was white or not is so passé. These days, Satan’s race is all the rage.
I’ve grown accustomed to seeing Jesus being portrayed as a white man. It’s still wrong, but it no longer bothers me that a man born in Palestine is almost always depicted as a northern European. I draw the line, however, when the History Channel goes out of its way to juxtapose a white Jesus with a dark Satan in its new miniseries “The Bible“. Oh yeah, and dark Satan looks a lot like President Obama.
The folks over at the History Channel issued the following statement:
“HISTORY channel has the highest respect for President Obama. The series was produced with an international and diverse cast of respected actors. It’s unfortunate that anyone made this false connection”
False connection. Right. Even if he didn’t resemble President Obama, I find the use of a dark-skinned man as Satan in an otherwise almost entirely white cast shameful. The resemblance with Obama is just the dingleberry on top.
