Race-baiter Shaun King has urged his more than 1 million followers to “tear down” church statues, murals, and stained-glass imagery that depicts Jesus as white.
“Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down,” King tweeted on Monday.
“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 added.
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.
They should all come down.

King went on to say, “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 of white supremacy. Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda. They should all come down.”
Is this really a surprise to any thinking person? The ideology driving the Black Lives Matter movement is Marxism. That’s not conspiracy theory or speculation. Not only is it written all through their statement of faith, but it’s also the admission of one of the group’s co-founders.
But aren’t they opposed to racism too? And isn’t that a good thing? Well, like all nefarious movements, Black Lives Matter shields itself in the more palatable language of social justice.
They do this for two reasons: First, so that any criticism the movement receives can be dismissed as a criticism of justice and a defence of racism. Second, so that ignorant social justice warriors will legitimise their cause, financially back them, and come to their defence when legitimate questions are raised.
While the Bible doesn’t offer us much detail as to what Jesus actually looked like, what it is clear on however is sin. The Bible condemns the theft of other people’s property as sin, and that’s exactly what vandalism is.
By destroying something somebody else paid for, you’re taking something from them that isn’t yours. And that is more un-Christlike than any shade of skin.
