Cedar Rapids, Iowa—
A local Evangelical Facebook group, “Americans For Acknowledging Jesus Was Arab But Not Arab-Looking” has spent the last few weeks attempting to get the hashtag “#JesusWasWhite” trending, spamming Facebook and Twitter users all over the nation to “spread the word.”
However, the hashtag has not “turnt up,” like the group’s mission statement pledged to accomplish. Instead, the counter-hashtag “#JesusWasBrown” went viral on social media in direct response.
The Evangelical group’s administrator, Linda Haddock of Cedar Rapids, returned a Halfway Post inquiry about the group’s perspective on the controversy.
“I don’t understand why this has become such a culture war thing where the Left has to rub it in our face that Jesus was Arab,” Ms. Hathaway said. “We know that. Of course we know Israel is in the Arab part of the Middle East, but Israel is, like, kind of white now thanks to post-war immigration from Eastern Europe. Maybe Jesus had a rare skin condition where his skin had less melanin than the people around him, ever think of that? European artists wouldn’t have painted Jesus, Mary, Joseph and all the Bible people as white for centuries and centuries if it wasn’t true. They wouldn’t just make that up. And, besides, Jesus saved mankind. Who does that sound like? White people are all about saving Earth and freedom. We want the whole world to be free. Well, like, free where they live. They can’t come live here and have our freedom, of course. Obviously America is a white nation built by whites for whites. Just because slave labor was used doesn’t mean Blacks are a part of real America. If you hire a contractor to build a porch for your house, it doesn’t mean you have to accept the contractor as a part of your family! We have the right to keep our nation the way we want it… white! Which is exactly why Jesus had to be white. Because America is white. It just doesn’t make sense for Jesus to be any other color except America’s color. Science can’t prove everything, and genetic biology is just a hoax by atheist liberals to pretend Jesus was brown. Only all the people around Jesus were brown, which is why they needed saving by Jesus.”
