There are many great white men of history. John Brown was a great white man. FDR was a great white man.

Jesus Christ, as He is real (as are the sins for which He is the Redeemer of).

As far as mortals go, Sir Isaac Newton from bygone days ... and Dr. Michael Savage (of 'The Savage Nation') in our current time.

Julius Caesar, he was certainly the most inffluential man from the Ancient Ages (Jesus aside) and he played a key role in shaping the Western Civilization. Sorry, but Washington, Jefferson, etc, despite being crucial at some point, they didn't achieve the feats Caesar did. He was the great architect of the Roman Empire, the first global political and economical organization our World saw.

He was not white.

But, yes, I agree.

Who is my favorite white person?

LOL--tonight I really think it's Thomas Jefferson.

Seemed to know what he believed and was wise beyond his years.

Now you're talking,Michael Savage ,the only man on the air that tells it like it is.No PC bull(r@p!

As far as Jesus goes they say he was a direct decendant of King David.King David was described ,in the bible,as a man with flaxen -like hair, in other accounts as ruddy as in red.Flaxen is the bible term for blond & straight,thus if he were blond do you not think he was white?I have not seen negroid race people with natural straight flaxen hair.I just hate to break this message to Barack's so called Pastor,Jeremiah whats his name?This man said Jesus was black.

As far as scientists go how about the inventor of A/C electricity,radio,electric coils,ball lightening & so many other inventions,Nikola Tesla.

Sorry, got that from an old episode of All in the Family when Archie Bunker was lamenting about jews, meathead said Jesus was a jew. Archie said, "Only on his mother's side!"

This thread cracks me up. Glen Beck?? That's funny.

My favorite white person... hmm. I think I would have to say the countless white men who are never mentioned in history books that lived their lives by their conscience instead of by what was socially acceptable.

How?? He was a great General and was Military Dictator but what was his influence?? The first Emperor Augustus had way more of an influence over how the Empire started and it's Emperial organizations. Julius Ceasar was rarely in Rome as he was being entertained by Cleopatra in Egypt in his years as sole Dictator.

Infact at the end of the Empire around 475 A.D. the Roman Empire and Europe looked nothing like it did when Ceasar was last Dictator in 44 B.C.
