Christianity isn't a white religion. It is a Middle Eastern semitic religion. Jesus was a Jew.

Like many Japanese are Shinto and Buddhist, Jews can be Jews and Buddhists. Theravada Buddhism is a practice. We have faith that Lord Buddha has shown the way to liberation. If you have Faith, you won't worry about converts from Vipassana to Yoga and from Yoga to Pilates.
