And painting him white
Likely a reference to the common Afrocentric idea that Jesus was black. The belief is that even though Jesus was Jewish, not all (in fact, most) Jews aren’t white. Judaism began and thrived in the Middle East, and still does to this day. Many Middle Eastern skin tones can be easily construed as “black” in the same way that many Australian Aboriginals are considered black — in tone, rather than in African heritage. Roman and Eurocentric Christianity found it more acceptable to have a caucasian Jesus, and so propagated that “misinformation.”
Conversely, the general idea is that Jesus was an uber-white Jew, could rock a mean beard. If Tech wants to find out just how “white” Jewish people are, he can simply take a look at Jerry Heller, or whichever interchangeable Jew happens to own the record label.
