In my opinion, it doesn't matter as long as you believe and have faith in His existence. His appearance has nothing to do with one's faith.
What is the relevance of knowing Jesus' skin color? Would your faith be affected because of His appearance?

There is no description of Jesus in the Bible. My feeling on that is he wanted us to focus on his teachings of Agape Love, Forgiveness and Trusting God.

How can you forgive when he hates you if you are a man laying next another man? Or that he demands a King to kill all the babies or allow you to have slaves? Which Bible are you reading that 3 billion Christians are not?

Demonstrates (in the Bible) that he loved and forgave every person that delivered those violent blows to his body. He had the power of God to stop it and even destroy these people before he was even nailed up, but he did the opposite. Agape Love, Forgiveness and Trusting God will defeat evil. Period. The question is, are we willing to take that “risk” and trust God?

As a child the Bible stories played in my mind as someone with dark olive skin matching the locations of the stories. That of course did not match the Christ displayed in our Australian churches. One of the reasons belief never took root in me, it seemed so manufactured and stage managed. I could never quite buy it, even when I tried really hard

I got married in a Catholic church, made sense, as I had been baptized as one, and my wife to be was Catholic as well.
The church had Christ on a cross at the altar, and His figure was carved from ebony. So, married we were, and off to the reception we went. My wife looks very Caucasian. Anyway, all the dancing began, bridal waltzes, and one of my wife's uncles is dancing with her. He whispers in her ear"Christ wasn't black, you know, He was white"!!..

You can't win...there is always someone who shows his limitations in his understanding of Jesus appearance. As a child I had a picture of Jesus as a Middle Eastern Jew but with the brightest blue, blue eyes! smiling face with smiling eyes

Well it all comes down our picture of the Divine, or whatever one's belief is. In an infinite universe, surely the Infinite is possible.

To the contrary, most Christian are fully aware ... perhaps you’re just catching up.
He had to be olive skinned..
