So far, some of them are doing an admirable job.
Jesus was not white. He was not European. He was not Israeli as we know it, nor did he look, talk or act like the Jewish Americans or Jewish Britons we know today, who are for all intents and purposes besides their religion simply American, or simply British.
Jesus was a dark-skinned Semite -- the people we call Arabs today. He was born, lived and died in a backwater in the Middle East, which was at that point already a backwater to start with. He was almost certainly illiterate, probably mad, and the idea that Christians literally a world away have turned him into this 'easy-on-the-eyes' white guy with blue eyes is just so absurd I couldn't help making a thread to poke at it.
I think Jesus was half black/half white and was very concerned that people had access to healing.
Jesus was a pretty dark person. Makes perfect sense.

He was certainly Caucasian. Whether that translates into "white" really depends on who you ask.
I think it can be rather safely said that he probably wasn't a dirty blonde Anglo-Saxon with pale skin and blue eyes, however.
