the reason biblical figures are portrayed as white in the western world is because white people who only knew about white people had a hard time being ethnically accurate.
ppl won't let it go. White people started a trend of race washing history and it's not gonna end cause it fills to good for those that needed it to fill person voids of not feeling personally important
also, black thought and philosophy is trapped in a horrible, unproductive cycle of being race oriented, and finding meanings and importance in black people as opposed to being free from race and it's stupidity and instead focusing on humanity like confucious, buddah, aristole, socrates and countless philosophers with black skin prior to imperialism and slavery.
you know the book The Prince. It's a copy of a document written by black africans, the essential idea that is. and the book wasn't focused on how to be a better black prince or how princes in every civilization was black, it was about being a good leader, and was so good that europeans later copied it and wrote their own.
