Dark or Light?

Just in case you don't know what the people of the Bible looked like, a company called TRAIN UP A CHILD, INC. has created two distinct sets of biblical action figures. One set of Jesus, Joseph, Mary, David, Goliath and the rest are very pale white-skinned figures. Another set of the same people have very dark skin.

Which ever one gets purchased, this much is true - it's guaranteed to be tacky!!!

Don't they have a Jesus doll that actually looks Jewish? Frankly, though, there is only one race: the human race.

On another tack, Muslims revere Jesus as a prophet whose importance rivals that of Muhommad. Muhommad is one of the five pillars of Islam, but Muslims believe in a second coming of Jesus. If they believe strongly enough to riot and kill over images of Muhommad, then where's their outrage over images of Jesus?
