    I've been hearing his discussion quite a bit recently.
    It's all based on the idea that the slave masters initially introduced Christianity and the 'white Jesus' to the black slaves so people view the whole religion as a farce. It's also said that it was seen as a way to control the slaves so they could behave in a certain way (humble, submissive) in order to give the slave masters peace.

    I'm black and I've been a Christian all my life, but I cannot make sense of this argument though it still intrigues me on how it came about. What are your opinions on this?
    (I'm sorry if there's already a thread on this)

    Well the KKK were a christian terrorism gang...

    Black people in Ethiopia were Christian long before most Europeans were converted.
