you know, ironically, the application of "black jesus" is a life preserver to keep blacks on board as the information age and education progressed to the point where we could start analyzing and challenging the tradition of a blond blue-eyed jesus.
So they throw in a safe 'black jesus' carrot as a retainer instead of allowing us jumping off the boat.
Jesus was not black until "black is beautiful". Controllers were cool with "black is beautiful" and even "black is original" as long as it did not translate to "black is powerful" and "black should be liberated" and can be affirmed WITHOUT any dictated religiousness.
Imagine the fear after 9-11 if mostly all blacks in America were moslem instead of participatory/safe/complicitly christian.
