Snapped while reading. I really always have a problem with the insistence that Jesus would have been white but that’s not my battle to fight.
The Color Complex: Kathy Russel, Midge Wilson and Ronald Hall.
This is my second read through and it was less devastating this time around. I could take the emotion out of it and kok at the research and the compilation of ideas and thoughts on blackness.
Not only is this an outward reflection if blackness and it’s impact but an inward one too.
It’s an interesting read. I would recommend it but you definitely have to be in an open place to receive it. Receiving it in this case is more to do with exploring the topic for yourself and what it means to you than blindly accepting what others have taught you to believe your own blackness or lack thereof was.
