I think its very easy for you to just dismiss what black people have gone through if you think they can just "let him be their saviour" after his image was used to enslave them for hundreds of years, and after so much injustice was done, with the backing of the church in many instances, and much of the Christian church today still supports the destruction of black people. Sorry but its not that simple. Its easy to see why many blacks can turn against Christianity as a "white man's poison" and frankly I'm surprised that more blacks do not embrace this type of thinking. What good has the church done for black people, or for anybody for that matter ? The original missionaires who went into AFrica to "gain converts" were really intelligence assets used to spy on the population and survey the territories their nations were about to conquer. The vast majority of churches went along with colonization and slavery, a good deal of churches supported segregation and Jim Crow, and may churches today support the right wing agenda of keeping the poor poor and tax breaks for the ultra wealthy, so please tell me why a black person should embrace an institution with this legacy ?

What many call "Christianity" is generally anything but, and usually it is an affront to GOD.

The tragedy is that many people black and white get turned off from the Bible because of the horrific and disgusting history of many of the people who claimed to be acting according to the "wiil of God"

but there is plenty of truth in the bible, if you know how to interpret it, and not be mislead by Charlatans.
Some ridiculous notions here, sure, there was alot of corruption but what do you think religions of africans have been? voodoo, santeria, withcraft, they would literally sacrifice there own children, and this is still going on now.

2 wrongs dont make a right, and people not representing christ dont speak for all christians, this is exactly the same roman catholic argument. if a black person doesnt want to truly look for christ rather than the worldly christians that are setting up on earth thats still on them.

Well...how many black people in the US have been slaves recently? How many black people in the US are held back by white people? Are the black people in the US holding themselves back instead with their victim status? Seems like laws have been changed to help the black man..but they are still in their own mental prisons bitter against the white man but don’t realize that they aren’t slaves anymore?

I’ve seen all black churches..not sure what you’re talking about where the church supports the destruction of the black person. Even if there aren’t all black churches..not everyone is racist or sees black v white.
you are missing the point entirely.

the institution of the church, and "Christianity" has historically gone along with the enslavement and oppression of black people

why would you want to align yourself with an institution with this legacy ?

Have they? I’m not sure what type of Christianity you’re talking about...but its not the love your neighbor as yourself kind.

I don’t see that legacy..I see the legacy of Christ..who came to seek and save the lost.

I'm not talking about "corruption"

I'm talking about the systematic colonization of Africa, the enslavement of AFrican peoples, the oppression of AFrican peoples (post slavery) all aided and abeded by the so called "Christian" Church.

why on earth would any self respecting black person wish to embrace or even entertain such an institution ? I fully understand any reluctance to this.

the black Christians in America have been brainwashed into following that institution, it is these same black Christians who would likely laugh at you or attack you for suggesting to them the possibility that Jesus Christ was likely a black man.

there were some good Christians who opposed those thing no doubt, but they were in the minority I'm afraid. Have you read any history ?

Does history have any part of what is happening in today’s world? I don‘t see Christians going out of their way to enslave any black person..or fight with them. I think that if you live in the past you can’t live in the present or have a future.

They were in majority that's why it stopped.


were they ? Is that why the most destructive war in America's history had to be fought before slavery ended.

Is that why the "Christian" south supported segregation until the federal government forced them to stop, and they kicked and screamed in opposition.

Sorry I dont think the majority of christians supported ending slavery or Jim Crow. If you have evidence to the contrary, I'd be happy to see it.

Even the Devil is known to pick bible verses to prove his points or push his narrative... so it's important to be aware of this trick and consult the whole gospel.



Is Jesus black or white or yellow or red or tan or...? Guess we'll know when we see Him right.
wow speak for yourself the amount you completely lie about it.

Drag them out of the inner cities where they push and hustle... bring back the plantations and put them to work.

Yeah that’s what they said about slavery, which is what I suppose you’re wanting to reinstate. Good thing you’re a delusional person who thinks he’s some kind of prophet. No one takes you seriously fortunately.
Nothing wrong with honest work.

So according to your logic I could blame non believers for all the evil in this world? You judge the christians for what they tolerated, but if non believers are so much moral then why do they tolerate the evils of the present age? Certainly the Christians cant be relied upon to make a stand...
