lyrics

JESUS WAS A PERSON OF COLOR - Written by Roger Campo / ASCAP

You say you love god and country
I know you love your guns too
You say you love Jesus
oh and he loves you
But what kind of god
would trigger
the kind of hatred
inside of you

oh Jesus was a person of color
not that blond hair, blue eyed image of the man
Jesus was a person of color
if he came back you would crucify him again

You say you want to take back your country
take us back to a dark place
You say you’re fighting tyranny
but it’s democracy you’re trying to erase
the war on immigrants, the war on gays
the war on women are the wars you wage
you stand your ground on the lies you spin
you would stop and frisk jesus if he came back again

oh Jesus was a person of color
not that blond hair, blue eyed image of the man
Jesus was a person of color
if he came back you would crucify him again

If he came back and walked the earth today
would you fear him and turn away
Would you close your heart and close your mind
would you miss the chance, to look into his eyes
you would miss the chance to look into his eyes

oh Jesus was a person of color
not that blond hair, blue eyed image of the man
Jesus was a person of color
if he came back you would crucify him again
