Activist: Depictions of Jesus Are “White Supremacy” and People Should “Tear Them Down”

Activist: Depictions of Jesus Are “White Supremacy” and People Should “Tear Them Down” by Daisy Luther for The Organic Prepper

If you were unconcerned about the wholesale toppling and defacement of statues because it didn’t affect you, the most recent call to action by a prominent activist might get your attention.

Shaun King, a prominent civil rights activist, believes that all depictions of Jesus that show him as white should be taken down.

If you’re wondering whether King was only talking about statues of Jesus, let’s be perfectly clear. He’s talking about all depictions of Jesus as white.

King believes that the depictions of Jesus were white so that white people would follow Christianity.

This sparked outrage on Twitter. Newsweek reports:

A tweet by Jenna Ellis, a lawyer representing President Donald Trump, warned that she would “not break” if “they try to cancel Christianity,” although it’s unclear if it was in direct response to King’s tweet. Regardless, King responded that the lawyer was “actually defending here is her whiteness.”

“Christian whiteness needs white Jesus,” King tweeted to Ellis. “It’s not about generosity or kindness. It’s not about protecting the vulnerable. It’s about whiteness itself. Attack white Jesus to her, and you attack her faith.” (source)

King is very influential in the black activist community. It wouldn’t be at all surprising if this discussion unleashes another wave of vandalism.

Mobs are irrational.

The mob, which started out by toppling statues of Confederate leaders and slave owners,  has been anything but rational. (Selco talked more about mobs here.) Any statue they see is fair game if it depicts a white man. They’ve toppled and defaced statues like the one of Ulysses S. Grant in San Francisco, apparently not realizing he was the leader of the army that opposed the confederacy. They defaced the statue of Miguel Cervantes, the author of the iconic book, Don Quixote. Here’s a quote from a translation of Don Quixote.

“Freedom, Sancho, is one of the most precious gifts that heaven has bestowed upon men; no treasures that the earth holds buried or the sea conceals can compare with it; for freedom, as for honour, life may and should be ventured; and on the other hand, captivity is the greatest evil that can fall to the lot of man.” (source)

It’s also interesting to note that Cervantes himself was enslaved for five years after he was captured by pirates and taken to Algiers. But, hey, he’s gotta go according to the mob.
