Shaun King, Black Lives Matter activist, called for the destruction of Jesus Christ statues and Christian churches for representing, what he says, is white supremacy and racist propaganda.
“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.“
It’s not just the Jesus statues they want to go after. He also called for the destruction of churches and stained-glass windows, murals, and other parts of churches that he says represent white supremacy and oppression. His Twitter posts have been greeted with examples from across the world that show many
other cultures depicting Jesus in likewise images of themselves.
Throughout Africa you can find depictions of Jesus as being black. Similarly, you can also find images of Jesus as an Asian throughout east Asia.
What started out as a protest of the Death of George Floyd, while in the hands of the Minneapolis police officers, has quickly turned into an attack on many different American values and institutions.
King has a history of stoking racial tensions as he did in 2019 when he exploited the shooting death of a seven-year-old, Jazmine Barnes, who was caught in a crossfire. King accused a white man named Robert Cantrell of being responsible for the shooting. He posted a picture of the man on twitter and his followers went on the attack. However the men that were allegedly connected to Barnes‘s death were black.
As The Blaze notes, King has become figure that many don't trust due to his shady fundraising deals but he did however open a Brooklyn rally for Bernie Sanders in 2019.
