Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King says statues of Jesus are 'white supremacy' and should be torn down

Influential far-left activist Shaun King has caused an uproar on Twitter after he wrote that Americans should “tear down” depictions of Jesus as a white man, claiming they are a “tool for white supremacy”.

Numerous protests and riots have been taking place across the United States since the end of May, following the death of George Floyd. In the protests that followed, dozens of statues, including from leading figures like Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, have been torn down and defaced across the country, resulting in what critics say is a full-blown assault on historical and cultural figures of the West.

“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,” King tweeted. “In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down.”
Now, the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and its supporters are turning towards Churches and religious figures.

King was open about his intentions on social media and made a number of posts about the topic of removing both statues and depictions of Jesus and Mary as white Europeans.
