I don’t know who Megan Kelly is but I wanna piss her off
“Verifiable fact” 😭😂
I’d PISS ON HER tbh
btw Saint Nicholas, whom Santa Claus is based on, was a black guy
and we don’t know exactly what jesus looked like, but here’s an artistic reconstruction of an average 20-something male from his ethnic group at the time
DOES THIS LOOK FUCKING WHITE TO YOU
I want this post everywhere
jesus was represented more or less accurately as an ethnically jewish arab man up until the reign of pope alexander vi, in the late 15th century. since he was viciously persecuting roman jews during this time, alexander wanted to make them less sympathetic to the public, and did so in part by ordering that portrayals of jesus be based off of his son, cesare borgia.
the reason “jesus is white” is because someone purposefully attempted to alter the perception of history to benefit his goal of persecuting a targeted ethnic group.
Wow, more proof the Borgias were trash.
saint nicholas is of Turkic ancestry, the only depictions of him as black are from Bari, where no one has ever seen him, centuries after his death, get this medievalpoc tier garbage off my dash, shoo
Turkish maybe, based on modern borders, but at the time of St. Nick, he was probably culturally Hellenic (Greek name) or Roman (Roman empire), and at the time the Turks were living in the steppe and not in Asia Minor, and Islam was not yet a thing.
I mean sure, medievalpoc is historical revisionism, but it’s more complicated than that. St. Nick lived before the Migrations Period, before the Bantu Expansion reached what is now South Africa, before the Anglo-Saxon invasion of Britain, around the time of the last prosecutions of Christians and during the reign of Constantine.
I mean you can argue that the modern Turks are genetically 90% either Byzantine or Greek, and just culturally Turkish, but that kind of pots-vs-people debate is irrelevant to St. Nick, who was neither Turkish nor Turkic.
That’s a lot more analysis than I was going to do.
I was just going to post “Jesus was clearly white,” above a screen cap of a twitter bluecheck saying “My fellow white people, we must”
