    People who were positioned in areas where the Sun was lower in the sky developed Almond eyes. Sometimes you will see photos of Eskimos wearing sunglasses with openings that are just slits for the same reason. Getting back to what you asked about Jesus. When one looks at Cultures going back to their Indigenous Roots (because we all have them), one universal is a given. Each culture, in it's indigenous state sees itself as the center of the world. Thus lots of American Indians around here have these creation stories where their folks came from the same spot where they haved lived since time immemorial. Now imagine a culture that believes in Sky Gods. People have houses so it is safe to assume that God lives in a house too. Not only that. God must resemble them also. I don't think the creation of a Blond Jesus for Nordic People was necessarily an act of hostility. I know more how darker skinned people began to be treated worse and can elaborate if you want but I think this is your answer
