Malcolm X (1992) on Jesus’ color

I feel like there is a wide acceptance, understanding, and knowledge that Jesus was not white. And that the disciples were not white. I’ve had this conversation so many times, never had much disagreement on the matter, and never gone beyond the recognition of the problem to an action on it. Why are we so fine with sitting idly by on this issue? We display “alternative” images of Jesus, but label them alternative rather than accepting a new and more realistic image of Jesus. What are we going to do about it? (this is a question I am looking for actual suggestions on…please let me know what you think!)
