BLACK JESUS

| 2 Comments


Darkness, hopelessness, dishonourable, evil, dirty and seriously unfortunate things are the few things ascribed to Black. White on the other hand, is deemed pure and without blemishes. It follows therefore that Africans seen as black, crude, dark, primitive, and primordial, diabolical and of the lesser cadre in the hierarchy of human. Whites; often Europeans, Americans, and Caucasians believed to be polished, the alpha human distinguished with supremacy, light, sophistication, and of the modern race entitling them to dominance and complete reign.

White domination from time immemorial, targeted at subjugating, suppressing, and dominating blacks by the supposed ultimate race. The ascendancy of the white rule and control is deeply rooted that the black man literally has no identity of his own other than figments of his imaginations. White rule made nonsense of African mentality with secret motives, articulately eroding our beliefs with deceptive diplomacies to subdue the strength, valour of the African man. Consequently, the whole idea is to make the black man feel inferior.

They systematically introduced their ways portraying it is the only noble way. They appeared cultured and civilised making our ways appears awkward. With this gulf in class, we gradually began to question the disparities. They had won our hearts – the first battle. They sold the ideas of equality but to dine with them, you had to learn their ways with the cutlery; anything short of that was barbaric. To seat at their table, you had to wear their clothes and most importantly, to communicate with them, we had to learn their language. More diligently, to earn their trust, we had to worship their God. Plainly, they took our voice and we lost the ability to speak.

Speaking of their God, they gave us shimmering accolades of him and his immense powers were not in doubt. Soon we believed in one God. Still, they say we are like apes and apparently, God could not possess the characteristics attributed to blacks. It inundated much so that we were not shocked when they revealed him as white. However, with the terror of segregation, exclusion and discrimination unleashed by the whites, the rule of absolute dominance and separation shows that God cannot be like them else the air we inhale will be selective and his love will be remote. Even in religion, they discriminate against us, and put us in separate places of worship to call on the same God. The one God who instructs us to love and worship him with all our might and ensure we love neighbour as ourselves. Who then is our neighbour? Should skin colour, affiliation, or race determine who our neighbour is?

No one has seen God and the bible says he sent his son who came in flesh but was God, nowhere is it described the colour his skin carried. In fact, the bible is clear on the fact that when Christ was born, his parents took him to Egypt – an African country for his safety after Herod sought his life. A country he spent his time until the death of Herod. Is it not likely that He was black? After all, considering the nature of the white monsters in South Africa when black citizens of that country had to carry passports to walk on their fatherland or face severe persecutions, compelled to live in shark houses, prevented from going to the same school with the whites, they could not even share the same train, jobs, or pubs. In a country on an African soil predominately dominated by blacks, the minority whites ruled them.

Jesus though not seen and cannot be described, am sure must be black. If we are to go by the nature of these white men who chained us and caged us like sardines in small cells, releasing us only so we could toil their soils and grow their lands with our sweat then the God that we know lacks any form of oppression. He is just, firm, strong and merciful not exploitive; he has the nature of a black man who though subdued is never conquered. Just like God, the black man is hospitable and accommodating even when he has reasons to hate, he loves more.

Made in his image, and likeness hence it is right to think we all are gods only lesser to the supreme God. If we see the god in every one of us, and not the colour of our skin, or the language we speak, then mutual respect can help us live right. God preaches love not oppression, equality not supremacy. There are countless languages on earth, yet he listens to us all and grant desires asked without striving with us. He gave us everything unconditionally unlike our ‘whites’ who pride themselves in being overlords over us.

The cause of disagreement here is not to justify anyone’s actions or inactions or to castigate, chastise any race. Neither is it to cause animosity among races. The argument is why darkness, worthlessness, hollowness, and emptiness must be the prerogative right of blacks? All good things should not always be neither white nor terrible things black. There is only good or evil!
