The dark skin Messiah

Ok,

The world debates the question: "What race was the Messiah Jesus?"  But the answer is clearly laid out in your New Testament.

Let's check it out.. 
1. Act 13:1
¶ Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.

2. Niger of course in Latin defines the word black.
"The etymology of the word 'niger' is from the Latin word for 'black'. In botanical nomenclature, where the species name is niger, this indicates that some aspect of the organism is black."

3. Simeon was the brother of Jesus
Matthew 13:55: "Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?"
Mark 6:3: "Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him."

4. So, if Simon (Simeon) was called Niger meaning black and is the brother of Jesus then guess what?  Jesus is black too!

Here's a modern day photo of what Jesus who's true name is Y'shua Ben Yosef probably looked like.

Above is a photo of a Young man who is a Hebrew from Ethiopia.
