Well known Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King said all images depicting Jesus Christ as a “white European” should be torn down because they are a form of “white supremacy.”
“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 Denmark. Tear them down,” he wrote on Twitter to his 1.1 million followers.
In a follow-up post, King called for the destruction of stained glass windows, murals, and other parts of Christian churches and buildings that depict Biblical figures as white:
“Yes. All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down. They are a gross form white supremacy. Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda. They should all come down,” he also tweeted.
CNN defines Shaun King as “a leading voice for the Black Lives Matter movement”. But he fell from grace when his race was questioned and he was accused of being a Caucasian falsely portraying himself as black.
