What? There's white, black, and asian in all of the episodes. The first episode had 2 angels (I think the were angels) and one of them was asian, the other was black.

This is a major reason why i've stopped watching this miniseries. Not just in the instance of Satan looking like the president, but as a whole how people of color (non-white) are depicted.

here are excerpts from an article that pretty much describes my angst towards the production:



sounds about on par with what i expected

Does Frank Ocean like p*nis?


fu*king peckerwoods know what they were doing by casting dude as the devil.

of course the Jesus character looks like Justin Bieber but there's noooooooooo was the so-called devil can be white also.

and the dude even has an arab sounding name just to demonize Arabs on some subliminal sh*t.

i don't see a huge resemblance...

but I can see how some ppl is hot over this...

why they wanna abandon the the "traditional" depiction of what the devil looks like? i.e. a Jew with a mustache and goatee (renaissance painters were commissioned to depict the devil that way by the Vatican)

think about what you just said....if you actually study the scriptures you'll know that Jesus wasn't white....hell his name wasn't even "Jesus" it was "Yeshu'a, which is short for
Yehōshu'a...if you look at the environment where the stories of the Bible transpire there were was no one there with blonde hair & blue eyes....the bible itself even describes "Jesus" as being a person of color....Revelation 1:14, 15 - His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters;

so how exactly would it make any sense for white supremacists to push Christianity on black ppl when Christ himself wasn't even white?

now if you say white supremacists have manipulated the bible over time for their own agenda then i'll concede & see the points your conveying....but other than that..nah..

Newsflash: you've been brainwashed. Ethiopian Jews have no connection to original Israelites.

The Jews of the bible were Semitic middle eastern people. Why would they look like Africans?

I haven't seen checked this series out[I plan to] but if they're using a white actor to portray Jesus then right off the bat it's historically inaccurate...
from my understanding jesus is neither black nor white he is Israeli.
