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.
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.
In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went?
Tear them 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.
