Shaun King: Images of Jesus are a form of white supremacy
This week, extreme leftist Shaun King said that images depicting Jesus as a white European are a form of white supremacy and should be removed.
King shared his thoughts in a series of Twitter posts on Monday.
“Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been. In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Demark. Tear them down,” King Tweeted.
The controversial activist said that white Jesus is a lie and a tool of white supremacy.
“White people would never have accepted a religion from a Brown man,” said King. “White Jesus was created to help white people use Christianity as a tool of oppression.”
Understandably, the comments have received strong criticism from conservatives and liberals alike. King claims he has found himself on the receiving end of many death threats over the last few days.
“In the past 48 hours, I’ve received about 500 literal death threats from white Christians who want me to know that they will kill me before they will ever take down their statues of white Jesus. Christian whiteness has always been violent, though,” King said in a tweet.
King is a former leader of the Black Lives Matter movement but left when he was accused of being a Caucasian falsely portraying himself as black.
“I have been told for most of my life that the white man on my birth certificate is not my biological father and that my actual biological father is a light-skinned black man. My mother and I have discussed her affair. She was a young woman in a bad relationship and I have no judgment,” King said in 2015.
King says that society shouldn’t stop at taking down statues of Jesus rather they should also remove all imagery, including murals and stained-glass windows. He also wants images of the virgin Mary and other white depicted religious figures removed.
King was a surrogate for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) and campaigned with the senator earlier this year.
