I had to look this conversation up, but it was
very easy to find:

I was made in God’s image and you’ll note that
I ain’t black.

Well, don’t complain to me about it!

I ain’t complaining about nothin’. I just mean all
the pictures you ever see of God, he’s white.

Well, maybe you were looking at the negative!

Let’s try to talk intelligent. Now if God was black
as you say, then his son would also have to be black.
You ain’t going to tell me that Jesus was black?

Well, now you’re catchin’ on. They already proved
that Jesus was an Ethiopian.

Whatever he was, he was never black.

"They already proved that Jesus was an Ethiopian"
is a line I've never forgotten. Growing up Catholic,
it cemented what I pretty much already knew because
the alternative didn't make any sense. The dialogue
is between Archie Bunker and Henry Jefferson - All
In the Family.
