- Why is christanity the most popular religion in US and possibly the world?
- Why does it seem like the majority of christianity are black?
I'm not really sure as I haven't been around much nor had the patient to research. I'm not so sure about the first question, but for the second question, I'm assuming things from my experience. Christianity people in movies, churches, and random people I meet; mostly tend to be black. I don't know if there is actually some study done for this, but why are black people depicted overly verbosed spiritual character in the media?
I have a idea on why this could be and have been thinking about this for a few days randomly, and here it goes. Could it be that there is a inverse proportionality to one's overall well being with god. At least from my experience, people that are worse off( say financially for example) tend to be 'closer' to god'; or at least be more expressive about it. It could be that one looks for a higher way out just to feel comforted and possibly tricked into believing that everything will fall in place if one only places trust on god? From experience all of my friends that are black have rather a hard life financially, and all of them are christians. In contrast, most of my white friends are well off financially, but doesn't seem to be too heavily into god as my black friends. I'm not saying that christians aren't a diverse group, but all I'm saying is that from my experience, it seems like the majority of christians are african americans, and most of them are poor.
