The Colour of Jesus Christ

A debate has started on what colour Jesus Christ was. It is interesting, now that we celebrate his birth. Apparently, there are some scholars who claim Jesus was black. Others claim he just looked Middle Eastern, with an olive complexion. He was, most certainly, not white in the Western European sense.

To me, the colour of Jesus Christ does not really matter. Shibas come in different colours, and are equally good. So should humans be, regardles of colour. I would, nevertheless, be happy if further scientific investigation revealed that Jesus Christ was black & tan. That would really be something.
