Amen. Kyrie Eleison.
I have studied much this issue. The position that the Afro-centrists, or Black Hebrew Cultists (or those that are as such and similar) put forth is both divisive and inaccurate. Their message that the Hebrews and Jesus are black is delivered in a spirit of resentfulness and anger. I could respond point by point to their so-called historical facts, as well as counter their so-called scriptural references. But, in the end people will think what they want. The Israelites (including the Messiah) were of Northern Mesopotamian decent. These people have not been replaced by white people because of some great conspiracy (nor have the Jews). They are still there. Look into their faces today and you will see the same faces that Israelites had during the time of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, and the Messiah. Indeed they are not white, in the western European manner but they are not Black African either. To see these faces, do a Google/Yahoo image search of the Kurds and Armenians. You can also review studies on their DNA. A few more details are here:
