JESUS STATUES AND CHURCHES MUST BE DESTROYED SAYS BLM LEADER
Shaun King, the controversial Black Lives Matter activist known for pushing false claims, called for the destruction of Jesus Christ statues and Christian churches for their depiction of the “white” holy family, which King argued are forms of “white supremacy” and “racist propaganda” that promote “oppression.”
“Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down,” the activist posted via Twitter on Monday. “They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been.” . . .
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. . . .
As noted by Fox News, many on Twitter pointed out to King that differing cultures depict Biblical figures in ways that resemble their own community. “Ethiopia, for instance, has depicted Jesus as black for more than 1,500 years,” the report highlighted. “Likewise, images of Jesus appearing Asian can be found throughout the Far East.”
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?
Tear them down.

The messaging from King comes on the heels of the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests and riots over alleged institutional racism. . . .
In 2019, King “recklessly exploited” the shooting death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, who was tragically caught in the crossfire, “to stoke racial fear and hatred,” wrote Michelle Malkin in a piece for National Review. “The Black Lives Matter activist and columnist for the Intercept immediately pounced — using his huge Twitter platform, followed by 1.1 million people, to cast the incident as a racial hate crime. . . .
Aside from King’s history of false accusations, the activist has lost trust from some on the far-left over his less-than-transparent money raising endeavors and for past reports that King allegedly lied about being black, himself. . . .
Most recently, the activist used his fame and massive social media platform to become a surrogate for democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), including opening a Brooklyn rally for senator last year.
