What do you think of the story surrounding the Black Madonna? How would the story be different if it had Been a picture of a White Virgin Mary?

I like the story of the Black Madonna. The statue represents the divine in dark skinned people. The Black Madonna represents a sense of connection to Christianity that is not white. A white Madonna would only reinforce a feeling of otherness that the women already feel and experience in white society.
