Africans do have their own religions. And who told you Jesus is (was) a white man with blue eyes? Funny enough, none of the predominant religions originated from the white man's land. Asia has single handedly produced about 90% of them. Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, name them


As for Judaism and Christianity, I wouldn't so much consider them white man's religions. Both religions originated from from Israel. A country which is, as a matter of fact, encircled by Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Gaza.

You may want to speak to people from those countries to get some insight on how they identify as it relates to race. I find most of these threads about race laughable as they're usually posted by a "white-Americans" or "black-Americans" making a hell of a lot of assumptions about the mindset and opinions of others cultures.

As far as African religious beliefs, what was told to me directly to my face by actual Africans, in my experience, there are 3
types of people Christians, Muslims and Traditionalists but it seemed that they were nominal Christians and Muslims as these
same Christians and Muslims believed in a lot of things the Traditionalists believed in.

In general, a strong belief in witchcraft and ways to detect who is a witch,a secret society who announced their coming with
drums as a warning, so the people would know when they arrived not to look at them least something would happen to them
within 3 days.

Devils who come out and dance among and with the people. In talking to some Africans, I didn't know they were Traditionalists until it came out of their mouths in a general conversation. I was talking to a Yoruba person once and he
commented "Everyone comes from Africa, black, white, asian everyone" I am thinking in terms of the oldest bones found
in Kenya. BUT THEN HE SAID THIS: "Oladumare had 7 sons and one the Sun God he populated the whole earth with people."

It then dawned on me, so I said "Oshun she is the water goddess right?" He then said, " You people see water, we see
Oshun".

I said to myself, This is WAY OUTSIDE Western Thinking"

Can you link to a picture of a blue eyed Jesus? I am white and never knew that Jesus has blue eyes.
