And You Thought They Were Mad About The Passion


Jean Claude Lamar (top right) has come a long way since his role in Spike Lee's "X". These days the Brooklyn native can be found writing, directing, producing and acting in films. This November look for him to star in a film he created called The Color of the Cross.

I know, I know, this has been a week for the brothers! First Obama says he's thinking about running for the Presidency, and now we have a movie about Jesus being black coming out. The Klan's terror alert is definitely set to red this week.


I'm sure Jesus being black is no surprise to black folks, heck we've always known Jesus was black, who else could feed 5000 people with two fish and five loaves. Seriously though, the Bible is full of people of color, but it will be interesting to see how this plays out or if it even lasts past a week in the theaters.

With that said, I have a question for all of you out there:
Do you think Christianity would be the religion it is today if Jesus was widely promoted as a man of color?

good question. i think Jesus as a black man today and Christianity would be treated just like when Jesus walked the earth, not many believing and doubtful.

Maybe that's why they didn't believe in him, he was a brother.
