Great Art, I absolutely Love it!!!

Plenty of films have taken a stab at bringing Bible stories to life, from “The Ten Commandments” and “Jesus Christ: Superstar” to this year’s “Son of God” and “Noah.” But despite those movies’ different genres and tones, these films all tend to share one similarity: They have white casts, even though the Bible’s characters would have been from parts of Africa or the Middle East. Photographer James C. Lewis of Noire3000 | N3K Photo Studios has decided to rectify by presenting these iconic figures in a new light.

Lewis’ “Icons Of The Bible” photo series depicts some of the most famous characters from the Old and New Testament exclusively as people of color, including Simon Peter, Elijah, King Solomon and the archangel Gabriel. The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.

"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."

While Lewis’ series doesn’t aim for perfect accuracy when representing all of the biblical figures’ supposed nationalities, it will hopefully spark discussion on the nature of religious imagery as well as the inclusion of people of color in the modeling world. Said Lewis, “I wish to exhibit a splash of color onto the biblical pages of history with my creative embellishments. By doing so I hope to open the minds and eyes of the ignorant and create open conversations of how we can learn to see the world through colorful lenses. After all, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is intended for everyone.”

Some of the posts I read, while looking for ways to mask my massive hair loss, make me want to throw my phone across the room! For the life of me I don’t get why some people are so against cultural apropriation, without it we would not be speaking this mixed language and wearing the clothes we do. The world is ever changing and if you have respect for the culture and religion, possibly even practice it, why does it matter if they wear the article of clothing or do their hair a certain way? Let’s all get along and realize it’s progress and without it we would have walls between countries and not be speaking the language we have or even have math since we appropriated it from the Greeks!

  • Me:

    Hey Dad, I have a question

  • Dad:

    Alright, lets see if it's within my reach

  • Me:

    What do you think of cultural appropriation?

  • Dad:

    what?

  • Me:

    Cultural appropriation.

  • Dad:

    I think you mean acculturation.

  • Me:

    yeah, I do. But I was using the term the Social Justice Morons use.

  • Dad:

    It's a necessary part of being human, you can't just keep the one culture all of your life!

  • Me:

    So how offended would you be if a bunch of white people started speaking Spanish?

  • Dad:

    Offended? I would be glad, at least they speak my language!

  • Me:

    What if a white guy made tacos?

  • Dad:

    what kind of taco? why would I be offended? Did I invent it and patent it?

  • Me:

    Nope, just an ordinary taco made by a white guy.

  • Dad:

    Why would I be offended? It would like a German guy getting offended because I grilled a hamburger

  • Me:

    Well, because it's a Mexican food, it was discovered and is integral to Mexican culture. What if a white person doesn't respect the history of the taco.

  • Dad:

    When the woman who first created a taco did that, did the Angels descend from heaven with a deed and a copyright form signed by God informing us that only Mexicans can make it?

  • Me:

    Nope. It's just a taco.

  • Dad:

    Precisely, it's a taco, eat it. I would actually be happy for that white guy, tacos are pretty good.

  • Me:

    What if Tyler wanted to celebrate El Dia de Los Muertos? On his own?

  • Dad:

    Tell him to pace himself the skulls are made of pure sugar.

  • Me:

    What if he wanted to celebrate El Dia de la Independencia?

  • Dad:

    Culture is not something handed to you by God to protect and nurse, it's just something that happens to you, and when you think you have it figured out, it changes. That's what cultures do. They change. You know what these people are trying to do, right?

  • Me:

    Yeah,

  • Dad:

    They want us all to hate each other and not speak to each other. They want us Mexicans in Mexico, Afro-Americans in Africa, Asians in Asia and none of us talking or being nice to each other. With no resources, no trade, no rights, and only the one language that only we're allowed to speak so that we can't communicate with anyone outside. And that's after they'd kill off all the white people. They're like the KKK, if the KKK didn't have balls.

  • Me:

    I arrived at the same conclusion.

  • Dad:

    Make yourself a coffee.

  • Dad:

  • Dad:

    Just be sure it's Mexican *laughs*

I may turn orange from the amount of carrots I ate today..
