Shaun King: White Jesus Is White Supremacy

Publish date:

Activist Shaun King is once again causing a commotion after his recent claims that white Jesus is white supremacy.

"If your religion requires Jesus to be a blonde haired blue eyed Jesus, then your religion is not Christianity, but white supremacy. Christian whiteness, not white Christianity, has been the primary religion of this country for hundreds of years," he tweeted.

King continued, "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."

Is he right?

King has often been accused of being a white man himself. Despite followers demanding proof that he is indeed, a Black man -- he has not provided much background about his roots.
