  2. One of my white brothers, an elder, just shared your “melanin Jesus” post with me. I’ve never heard of you & I have genuine affection for my brother. What struck me most is that this is a brother who never has much to say towards race relations in our country. I on the other hand am very vocal mostly. And I notice the hoards of minority groups fleeing Christ & his church because to them he represents someone who doesn’t care for their kind. Doesn’t speak up for them & doesn’t defend them. And they get this representation from the way he’s presented to our country by “White christianity.”
    My point is, in the face of all this, I was not thrilled to see my silent brother finally speak up just to say, “Jesus isn’t black either. ” While I do believe that’s theologically true, for him to ignore so many other helpful things he could say, only to add this to the conversation was less than helpful. Just wanted to share that with you. Blessings
