Activist Shaun King Says “White” Jesus Must Go

We don’t have enough anarchy and turmoil going on in our Country, right? Riots, anarchy, pandemic, police murders and nooses. Enter Shaun King. Apparently, the activist was feeling kind of salty because he wasn’t getting any clicks, ink or air time. Mr. King has declared that all images of “white” Jesus must be removed.

If you are asking, Shaun King, who is that? Don’t feel embarrassed. King pops up from time to time and his claims of ethnicity are quite sketchy. He has glommed on to the Black Lives Matter movement in much the same way Rachel Dolezal did. Lisa wrote about BLM activist King five years ago. You can read her full post here. Here is a portion:

What does it say about one of your leaders if he or she cannot be authentic about their past? What does it say about a white person (by birth and other public records) who takes advantage of an opportunity that they should not take advantage of (scholarships, jobs, etcetera?) What does it say about a person-any person of any ethnicity-who is willing to LIE and capitalize on a movement and not willing to give straight answers when pressed with them? What does it say about a person when they are fueling the fires of racism and he, himself is a sham?

Even Don Lemon questioned King’s claim to being black:

The 40 year old King has been searching for an audience for decades. After college, he taught high school for a year and started his own church in 2008. In 2012, he left the church citing stress and disillusionment. Well, possibly defrauding people and charities might be stressful. He has accused others of crimes and when those people were found innocent, he has not apologized.

In order get his relevancy back, activist King has decided to pull Jesus in to the quagmire. Here are some excerpts from his nonsense, courtesy of the Washington Times:

“Yes,” Mr. King said regarding his support for tearing down images of Christ. “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.”

“Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down,” he said. “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.”

And, this tweet:

Shaun King has so much hatred flowing in those words, it’s hard to know where to start. The earliest documentation of the land now known as Denmark is from 500 A.D.. Travel was quite limited in Jesus’s time. A boat from Nazareth to Egypt would have made the most sense. As to what Jesus looked like, History.com gives us, not the answer, but an answer:

For many scholars, Revelation 1:14-15 offers a clue that Jesus’s skin was a darker hue and that his hair was woolly in texture. The hairs of his head, it says, “were white as white wool, white as snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined as in a furnace.”

“We don’t know what [Jesus] looked like, but if all of the things that we do know about him are true, he was a Palestinian Jewish man living in Galilee in the first century,” says Robert Cargill, assistant professor of classics and religious studies at the University of Iowa and editor of Biblical Archaeology Review. “So he would have looked like a Palestinian Jewish man of the first century. He would have looked like a Jewish Galilean.”

Revelations was written 500 years before Jesus’s birth, so the writer never met Jesus. The paintings and stained-glass windows depicting Jesus have generally reflected the ethnicity of the painter. Shaun King may claim to be an ordained pastor and I am just a backsliding Southern Baptist, but I do know this: The color or ethnicity of Jesus is not the point. We are all created in God’s image, Jesus the the Son of God and Man. Therefore, Jesus looks like all of us. Am I missing something?

The Black Lives Matters movement does not need a flamethrower like Shaun King helping them. I’ma pray for him.

Correction: As several readers have pointed out, I made a huge and easily checked mistake. The Book of Revelation was written sometime around 96 CE in Asia Minor. The author was probably a Christian from Ephesus known as “John the Elder.” According to the Book, this John was on the island of Patmos, not far from the coast of Asia Minor, “because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus” (Rev. 1.10).

Thank you, Readers.

    It is questionable whether Shaun King is even a human. I suspect him to be an artichoke.

    because he wasn’t getting any clicks
    I did not read that as ‘clicks’ the first time through. NTTATWWT

    and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark.
    So, you actually use your ignorance to berate other people? Bold move, Cotton….

    I am a practicing Christian.
    No, you’re not. You don’t even appear to be a lapsed one. You just seem to be one of many fraudsters throughout history donning the mantle of Christianity so you can lay claim to the admiration of others – loving the honor of man more than the honor of God.

    I am an ordained minister and was a Senior Pastor for many years.
    I know of LOTS of “ordained ministers” that aren’t Christian. Heck, I can probably become one for the cost of a pasta strainer and postage. And I’ve seen lots of “Senior Pastors” come and go – some percentage I was glad to see go – and some of those weren’t Christians, either.

    Christian whiteness has ALWAYS been dangerous.
    And that, right there, proves you don’t know anything about Scripture or God Almighty.

    he was a Palestinian Jewish man living in Galilee in the first century
    FIFY. *smh*

    Revelations was written 500 years before Jesus’s birth
    SAY WHAT?!?
    I think the Apostle John would be REALLY surprised at that.

    First, it’s the Revelation of John, not Revelations. Second, it was written on Patmos, in approximately 100 A.D., by the exiled Apostle John. And, given that John was one of Jesus’ closest disciples (“the one Jesus loved”), I’m pretty certain he knew exactly what Jesus looked like – even in his glorified form.

    The only physical “description” we have of Jesus is very general, from (IIRC) Josephus, who basically said he wasn’t much to look at, and left it at that. [Censors snarky comment about King and repents.]

  • John says:

    “Revelations was written 500 years before Jesus’s birth, so the writer never met Jesus.”

    Revelations was written toward the end of the first century AD. There are some who believe that it was written by the Apostle John. It is more widely believed that it was written by John of Patmos around 90AD.

  • Jesus wasn’t from “Palestine” because it didn’t exist until after his death. https://www.israelhayom.com/opinions/jesus-was-not-a-palestinian-he-was-a-mizrahi-jew/
    Incidentally, I dare anyone to stand a modern day Palestinian beside a modern day Jew and tell the difference. Both are darker skinned than Mr. King, but very similar in appearance. Some are light skinned, others dark. Some have light eyes, others dark. Across the board it’s very hard to disseminate between the two.
    So I call BS on this theory that he had dark skin and wiry hair, so must be Palestinian. I know plenty of dark skinned Jews.
    Did Jesus have blue eyes and blonde hair… I don’t know. He was made in the image of his father, as are all humans (to those of us who are Christians). So as an ordained minister, I’d expect Mr. King to know his scripture. Perhaps he mailed away for his ordained minister certification. Or it’s as opportunistic as his heritage.
    Regardless, Jesus was a Jew. How do I know? Because the Bible, and biblical scholars tell me so. 😉 Mr. King, put down the PLO, Talib narrative and do some research. Even a neophyte Christian, such as I am, Understands the line of David.

    • GWB says:

      Actually, “Palestine” as a name for the region predates Christ (Herodotus used it in the 5th century BC). It’s likely related to the Philistines that lived there before Israel (and, unfortunately, during). Philo and Josephus used the term, too.

      BUT, it’s not used officially until after Christ (and after Revelation, too). The Romans combined Syria and Judea to make the province of Palestine.

  • NTSOG says:

    This article “Black Slaves Matter” by Harry Cummins [Quadrant Online] has relevance and shines a light on the stupidity and hypocrisy of the western news media and ‘woke’ politicians lacking any kind of conscience at all:

    What a sham. I guess they call him “Talcum X” for good reason.
