White is a spectrum

I got a kick when the Discovery Channel reconstructed how Jesus probably looked like at the time:

Other facts that may ruffle the feathers of the Western imagination:

  • Did you know that there are indigenous white people? They live in North Norway and are called The Sami. They are blond-haired, blue-eyed, but they live off the land.
  • There are white people in the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan, near where we're currently bombing.
  • Most knights of the Middle Ages were brown too, being from Spain and Italy.

Where did you get the image from? I was trying to find it on Discovery's site but had no luck. Would love to share the article with my "Jesus was white" buddies.

I just did a Google Image search for words like Jesus brown, Jesus reconstruction brown.
