I assume you're joking.

I don't know about being black, but Jesus should have a darker skin tone than a white person.

x.x Blarg! You can buy those kind of things here.

Only...They're like...Making fun of religion and stuff.
You can even buy Hitler action figures here (Only in ONE store, though. It sells remade and even original items that were big in 50's right through to the 90's...Very awesome place ^-^ )

Real scary, though x.x

I guess you believe that Chris Redfield shooting black Zombies make Resident Evil creators racist too?

Now THAT, I'd buy!


Also, about the wave of racism comments that I made that obviously have some of you WTFing.

Raist: My bad, I heard that long ago and seem to have forgotten. You're right. I think.... (I went to a Catholic school, I never really listened to them anyways)

Dave, No, I'm not joking (see below)

Deity: It's more than that, see below.


As I've previously stated, the root of the problem is a good 1500 years+ old. Jesus was supposed to be the PERFECT person so white men thought, "well, surely he was white!" By establishing the perfect person as a representative of their "race" white men sought supremacy over non white men (again, notable examples being enslaving black and native people, giving asians only the most dagerous jobs, etc) which has been going on for well over a thousand years.

Today, people are more even, but there's still some intense racism. However, thanks largely to mixed classrooms and schools, children are making diverse arrays of friends and not growing up in as potentially a racist environment. Now, imagine, a white racist catholic parent gets his/ her child a white Jesus toy. The parent has avoided saying mean things in front of their child in the past to shelter them, but saw the kid playing with a black kid. The parent would give their kid the toy and maybe hint at white people being superior to black people. Kid shows the bllack friend the new Jesus toy. Black kid says "My mama says Jesus ain't white." Boom, they get into a fight, end of friendship (I was a kid once, they really are that petty) Kid remembers what parent says, and learns to look down at non whites. One kid converted to a racist. One down... millions to go.

Am I reading too far into this? Probably, but what year was slavery abolished in the States? it hasn't really been all that long, when you stop and think about it....

... okay, so I am joking, but it's not impossible that I'm onto something

(Also, lmao, I'm surprised everyone picked up on this, but not on the religious crimes part. Did everyone stop reading my post there and go wtf? LOL!)

Stop with all the racsit comments Walnut, who cares what color he was. I'm sure that Jesus didn't care what color he or his followers were so why should we? I see him as a rather tan person as he probably should be seeing as how he was born in the middle east. It matters not how he or any of the other biblical people are color or portrayed tho as we don't really know with 100% what color they were or their size or anything.

I'm not sure if this is a good idea but I will keep my eye open at my Wal-Mart at night. Perhaps Mary will have to stock some religious toys soon.
