Flo Rida's ridiculous Jesus bling ignited a 2,000-year-old race debate -- was J.C. actually black? If he was, we've got a great new hymn ... with soul.

Jesus was a Jewish boy who had a bar mitzvah. Also Jesus Christ is greek meaning son of God. So his name was HEBREW.

Unless the debate about his race started when he was 12 I doubt it's a 2000 year old debate.

Was Jesus black? Probably not. Would it change anything if he had been black? Nope. Not a thing,
But nice attempt at race baiting, TMZ.

Actually they did a special a few years ago and came to the conclusion that if "Jesus" did exist he was of Arab extraction and therefore he was medium dark skinned with short curly brown hair with brown eyes.

So he was not white, he was not black he was very tan.

Jesus was most likely what we would call mixed race or racially ambiguous today.

I don't know what race he was, but I doubt he had silver glitter in his hair.

Um, Jesus was not black OR white ... he was olive-skinned, as were/are the majority of people living in the area where he was born. And Mary was probably about 12 years old, and also olive-skinned, like her probably-much older husband. Why is this even a discussion? I'm waiting for someone to be shocked that Jesus was a Jew...

I am reasonably certain he did NOT look like a butter carving, coated with sugar crystals.
