BLM demands Jesus statues torn down

Even Jesus Christ isn’t safe from the woke mob.

In a shocking Twitter rant, Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King demand that depictions of Jesus be torn down–claiming that it’s a form of “white supremacy.

King specified that he was targeting statues, stained-glass windows, and icons that depict Jesus as “white European.”

“Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down,” King wrote. “They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been.”

King then clarified that he was being very literal: “Yes. All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down,” King added.

“They are a gross form white supremacy,” he continued. “Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda. They should all come down.”

While Jesus, of course, was a Levantine Jew, there exists no consensus on what that ethnicity of people would have looked like two thousand years ago.

Likewise, there’s no historic records to indicate what Jesus looked like. The common depiction of him with paler skin and a short brown beard is the culmination of centuries of European art.
