This infuriates me!!! White Christians will get mad if you display "black Jesus" because you're erasing his actual race in order for you to relate to it more. When they're doing the exact same thing!!!! They think Jesus was a good person, therefore he must be white because they can't relate to people of color. It's one of the most blunt examples of white privilege I can think of and it makes me sick!!
