Shaun King Calls To Take Down White Jesus Statues, Says It’s A Tool For White Supremacy
On Monday, left-wing activist Shaun King took to Twitter to call for the taking down of all statues of Jesus Christ that show him as a “white European” because they are “a form of white supremacy.”
King, a controversial leftist activist, who is a self-described black man, said that white European images and statues of Jesus should be taken down because they have always been a form of white supremacy. “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 said.
Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down.— Shaun King (@shaunking) June 22, 2020
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.
Then he referred to murals and stained glass windows as “racist propaganda,” saying, “his European mother and all their white friends should also come down.”
Yes.— Shaun King (@shaunking) June 22, 2020
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.
Social media was quick to call out King’s hypocrisy. Starting with one who said that it’s pretty funny to see Shaun King upset over Jesus being depicted as white when he is a white guy trying to depict himself as black.

Another said that if King wants to destroy “false white idols,” he can start with himself.
If Shaun King wants to start destroying *false-white-idols* he can start with himself.— Sean McPeak (@Sean_McPeak) June 23, 2020
One user said that King getting money while pretending to be a black guy is the ultimate white privilege.

While another user said that finally, there was one thing the right and left could agree on: mutual hate for Shaun King.

This is not the first time that King called out religious emblems for being “racist.” Since 2015, he has claimed that celebrations of Easter and Christmas are just tools of white supremacy.
King was a former leader of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) Movement but was kicked due to questions about his fundraising integrity.
