Shaun King, the controversial Black Lives Matter activist known for pushing false claims, called for the destruction of Jesus Christ statues and Christian churches for their depiction of the “white” holy family, which King argued are forms of “white supremacy” and “racist propaganda” that promote “oppression.”

“Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down,” the activist posted via Twitter on Monday. “They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been.”

“In the Bible,” King continued, “when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark.”

“Tear them down.”

    Jesus was a Jew! Therefore he was an olive color. Show me where the Bible says the 12 apostles were white!?

    • Valerie Crawford

      They weren’t white but the corporations who make nativity scenes make him white for some reason. I hardley think it is oppressive to have your God portrayed in your own skin tone. If we want a red or purple Jesus then we should be allowed that as well. It’s no bodies business what color my Jesus, Budha or any other God is.

      • takbeer

        @he was from whats’ today’s Palestine, does it hurt to say brown?
        oLiVe cOlor, so he was green then?

        This racism is a core beleive in christianity (look up Genesis IX, 18–27:), Jesus was portrayed racist in their bible, idk why yall expect white “christians” to be moral.
        Jesus also ordered killings of innocent woman, children and even specified not to leave out the infants or donkeys.
        Anyone who reads the bible (rated pg-13) start to finish with an open mind will leave christianity.

        They will never treat us equally, I will never understand why afro-americans cry for their approval.

    • Franklin

      Every country’s artists that have depicted the holy family have painted them in somewhat localized appearances so demanding such images that you find offensive is just plain wrong….

      if you wish the Holy family to look like YOUR community , than by all means paint images showing how you want them to appear,

      but once again, you dont have a right to destroy someone else’s artwork just because of your own claim to be offended… the Constitution doesnt give anyone a right NOT to be offended

    • Lynne

      Jesus wasn’t white the whole world knows that we even know he was a Jew and we also know he was not black !

      • Andrew

        With all due respect to this discussion, and Mr. Kings ignorance of the Holy Spirit dwelling in the bodily temples of the followers of Jesus, we all need to understand that Jesus and His Holy Spirit are represented by the appearance and skin color of each person who is born again with Him. So if a believer has dark, middle, or light skin then so does Jesus through them.

        The ecclesia (assembly of believers) is the church and the “body of Christ” now, which is why we are called His hands and feet who are to be salt and light for the entire world. There is no more male or female, Jew or Greek, or black, white, and brown for those who are in Christ Jesus.

        Read the Bible, repent, and have a forever relationship with Jesus Mr. King, because your thoughts and proposed actions are not coming from Him. In Christ, Andrew

      Exactly! And by the way, an Egyptian is a Caucasian. My dermatologist is 100% Egyptian, his skin is olive colored, not black

      • Ash

        First of all V, an Egyptian is African. Egyptians of that time were predominately African or “Arab”. But Egyptians were never “white” people. And there are many Egyptians who would find that reference offensive. Secondly, An olive colored person is colored … not white. And for those of you who don’t know… being “black” comes in many different shades. The original Jews were by all historical and geographical accounts black/colored people. They were not of white, pinkish, or very light tan complexions. They were darker tan, light brown, olive, red, and chocolate hues/complexions. Just read people. It would’ve been impossible based on geographical location for the Jews of that period to be white.

    • Dick DiMuro

      I believe Jesús was the son of God….nothing else really matters to me , and it really should not to anyone else. I am white…..,so what does skin color have to do with Religion…..

    • D Janson

      This guy is an abject marxists and baboon with no historical makeup , marble is white and not a declaration of ethnic origins .

      • Francis

        Let us look at how blacks treat their own brethren in Africa. Be it Liberia or Rwanda, they find excuses to butcher each other when blacks are in power, but in the end the white guy gets the blame. If US was such a bad place, why doesn’t anyone in his right mind migrate to African countries ? Zimbabwe was the grain bowl of Africa, look at what it was reduced to under Mugabe. Are South African blacks doing any better under black rule ? Sure their rulers “look” like them but are much worse than their erstwhile colonial rulers. When they were tribes they used to kill each other with spears and arrows, now they kill each other with guns.

    • Thomas

      Exactly , … ” Olive Color “, not Black though , ( there is a difference in the variation ) , BUT , that doesn’t Matter , as the , ” ONE “, speaking through Ye’shua was , ” Ru’ach Ha’kodesh / the Holy Spirit “, … Ye’shua was / is HIS Mouthpiece in the Earth .

      But , in Yo’chanan / John it’s Written that , …

      ” GOD “, is a Spirit : they that Worship HIM must Worship HIM in Spirit and in Truth “.

      The Flesh , ( Man ) , does , ” NOTHING “, ( but get in the way ) , for the Shekinah / Glory of YAH .

      Whether HE was Black / White , ( which doesn’t mean Caucasian , … White doesn’t equal Caucasian ) , Asian , American Indian , Aboriginal , … Matters Nothing , as it’s about the Ru’ach .

      Men are Utilizing this , ” Technicality “, for the Purpose of Spite and Strife and Evil Thoughts , caring not for the Thing’s of GOD .

    • Alexei

      Jesus was God the Son in the flesh! He didn’t have a nationality.

    • An

      Um. His father was GOD. You don’t know HIS color. My Italian grandparents would be considered “white,” with a somewhat olive hue.

    • Rick Riz

      One thing is a definite: life is short. We live then we die. What we do and say in life (good or bad, truth or lie) reflects 5 minutes after death.

    • Garry Spurvey

      What matters is that Jesus died for our sins he is the God incarnate as a Man so he could be any color he chooses in any country he chooses but I do not believe he was white nor do I believe that white people were responsible for eating the apple and defying God nor did a white man commit the first murder no that weight belongs to whatever color Adam and Eve were they are the ones responsible for this mess were just caught up in their inequities

    • Garry Spurvey

      Jesus is God incarnate as a Man he is God Almighty he can be any color in any land i dont presume to know what color he used as a Mam but it probably wasnt white anymore than a white woman defied God by eating the apple or a white man committing the first murder no that distinction goes to the Jew just like when the Jews denied Christ and gave pilot the ok the execute him. we are all here for those reasons has absolutely nothing to do with the white man so tear down statues of Jesus if that makes you feel justified in some way because God is the only answer on this earth not the author of the above article

    • Garry Spurvey

      Being jewish is your religion not your race so show me where it says the apostles arent white what color they were is irrevelant what matters is that Jesus Christ is our Saviour whatever color he chose on this earth he has that power God does not speak of what color people are they are all his people no matter what color they are if it offends you that he is portrayed as white then your missing the point I am white and I do not believe Jesus had white skin who cares what color is chose he came here for all of us

    Shaun King is a Satanist! A Jinn follower of repeat repeat repeat what his Master tells him. If you want this to turn into a war of beings of light and the beings of Dark then carry on spewing your wicked evil bile…The Bible says quite clearly you are either on one side or the other…No doubt in his Satanic ritual he gets much praise from his Master! Jesus was a being of light and love, it really shines a light on this dark evil wicked daemon mindset of pure hatred!

    • Billy Allen

      Yes, he is! We don’t need this racist being ‘lifted up’ by the media… He is only a trouble-maker from satan!

    • Brian

      Aren’t all statues and pictures of Christ contra indicated by the Bible?
      Graven image is defined as–“a carved idol or representation of a god used as an object of worship.” A picture is a representation.

      Exodus 20:4 – Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth:

      Leviticus 26:1 – Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up [any] image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I [am] the LORD your God.
      Deuteronomy 4:16-19 – Lest ye corrupt [yourselves], and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,

      • ThinkingMatters

        You seem like a reasonably intelligent person.

        So re-read the scriptures you quoted and the passages before and after for context.

        You will note the following, there is a difference between setting up an idol (something that is a God to someone) and a statue that honors a belief. Do people worship the specific statue or what it represents?

        If you are a person of faith, your answer would logically be the latter, ergo no a statue is not an idol as what it represents is worshiped, not what it is. Much like how Christians revere the Cross, its not what it is (2 beams of wood) that is revered; but what it represents.

        That is the key.

        Similarly, do people raise a statue of Martin Luther King for example, to honor the statue itself or who it represents and/or the ideals, history, event etc it represents?

        Like before the latter is the case; and that should be obvious.

      • Franklin

        actually no, no where in the Bible does it say make no images…

        what it DOES say is to not Worship Graven images…

        two totally different ideas

      • Dominik Diblasi

        Not every statue is an idol. Whom is bowing down to these Jesus statues , who believes there is power in the statue or that the statue is needed for relationship with Jesus….. not any true Christian. So therefore your verses and point are null and void , as all statutes are not idols.

      • B Collins

        In context, the commandment is not an injunction against making “graven images,” but an injunction against worshiping them. As such, God warns, “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God” (Exodus 20:4–5, emphasis added). The commandment is not an injunction against making “graven images,” but an injunction against using these carved images as objects of worship.

  3. Dr. Harold Pease

    Your white racism and anti-christianity bias reeks. If you are a spokesman for BLM it’s pathetic. Christ was the least racist person who ever lived. To the vast majority of Americans ALL lives matter but people carrying a sign so stating would be beat up by your organization.
    You bring fascism to America.

    • Lowell James, MD

      The Reverend Shawn King, Ph.D. theologian, and historian from where ever, kindly please read the following. Jesus’ life is represented as between 1-33 years AD. Indeed, the country or land of Egypt existed for thousands of years prior to Jesus’ life and many centuries thereafter. So far so good. Now for a new fact for you, Dr. King: The Kingdom of Denmark came into being around 1200 AD, yes around 1200 AD. Jesus’ family didn’t go to DENMARK since that kingdom did not exist for another 1200 years. Hence, what is your point?

      • Susan

        While I despise Shaun King’s ridiculous, attention-whore antics, my remarks are for you, “Doctor”.
        Have you never heard of sarcasm? Exaggeration? Hyperbole? A JOKE?
        Of COURSE Denmark didn’t exist in Christ’s time, and of course he didn’t come from there. Everyone…even Shaun King…knows that.

    • Julia Westcott- Hutton

      Thank you for your concise message.
      I have written on numerous counts to Mr King. I wish him peace and have asked him not to stir up hate and empower his followers in a positive way .
      There are many depictions of Christ and the Madonna with various skin tones. Black, white, Indian and Asian. I venerate them all in my prayers and wish Mr King to open his eyes.
      I doubt he has read the bible or scriptures.


    • Deanna

      Amen,brother! Keep fighting the good fight. Jesus deplores what is going on in America in respect to basing ones need to repent on ones skin color. Jesus could care less about whether or not we knew he was a certain color. What he cares about are things BLM, intersectionality and critical race theory care nothing about, and that’s this ALL have fallen short of the glory of God. Not one race/party/gender ( or made up genders) is the holy race, the race that is above reproof. This is a gospel of Satan, bound to shackle all of us for generations and generations. Pray that God will open hearts and minds. He is the only one who can bring light out of these twisted, horrendous doctrines.

      • Julie Lackner

        Truth, everyone needs to repent and seek Gods face . America needs a Revival so that God can heal our Land!

      How many blacks are aware of the sacrifice John Brown made to stop Slavery and the black slaves didnt even come out to support what he tried to 8 black men out of all the slaves in america came to help sad this whiteman gave up his family his life his sons also did for the cause where was all his support be was the beginning of the end of Slavery against the black race

    Racism refers to the denigration of a group or individual based on the belief that they are inherently inferior. In this scenario, “racist” is used instead of racially inferior to denigrate an individual depicted as “Caucasian.” If Shaun King really opposes racism, he should reconsider his outlook to avoid an obvious irony.

  5. Marc h

    don’t bring rocks when you idiots come to take down my jesus statues kids. yall have gone way too far. Maybe you should check your history books for the crusades and see just how weak the church is.

  6. Solo

    The bible also says make no image of what is in heaven which makes statues of Jesus idolatry and against the laws of God so they should come down

    • Connie

      Oh please. You are talking Old Testament BEFORE Jesus came in the image of man. Once Jesus took the human visible form it is hardly idolatry to fashion a picture or statue in His human form. Is it idolatry to have a picture of your mother? It is purely an attempt to eradicate any reminders or support of Christian values and beliefs even if it’s on church property. Can I enter your yard and destroy your garden gnome since it is offensive to me? This is purely Marxist propaganda and has clear evil agenda and zero to do with racism. Indeed, you are prejudice if you spew hatred based on religion. Hypocrites I will pray for you

      • Kevin

        Christians do no worship any idol. The statues and pictures are private matters of a particular church.

    • ThinkingMatters

      Solo, you seem to miss what should be obvious.

      An idol (something that is worshiped); is very different to a statue or item that is revered for what it represents.

      This answer should be obvious to anyone with a faith. An idol is something that is idolized/worshiped of itself. A statue of Jesus, is not worshiped itself, rather it pays homage to what is worshiped by Christians; namely the real Jesus who walked the Earth.

      Are statues of people or events raised to honor the statue itself or the person, event or part of history (namely what they honor the memory of)?

      The latter obviously. Not complex stuff here.

    • Franklin

      ok, your entire sentence makes no sense at all…

      no where in the bible does it say to not make images of what is in heaven…

      and what exactly does a statue of Jesus’ Idolatry even mean or look like?

      no Christian group worships Jesus’ image or statue…. and what exact “God’s Law” is being violated exactly?

      you obviously are not a christian and like most Liberals who try to use the Bible against Christians, you failed horribly…

  10. Cara

    This man is garbage, pure garbage . And I don’t care what race he is. The person who started BLM identifies as queer and is married to a trans person. These people are using the righteous and just cause of anti racism as a disguise for what they really want. An evil, Godless, immoral, Socialist agenda. It all goes together. The proof is that if they truely cared about black lives, they would do or at least say something about the thousands or even millions of African American babies killed through abortion every year in the United states. What about their rights? Well I guess if you don’t acknowledge that an unborn baby is a person, then you think having an abortion is a ok even in the 12th month.!! They are liars!

  11. anonymous

    Shaun King’s argument claims that Jesus was black and is portrayed as white only by “western white supremacists.” Jesus was in fact an Israeli jew, with mildly dark skin, who came to an Egypt with a racially diverse population. Thus, he wouldn’t have blended in as thoroughly as Shaun King claims.

    This is also no reason to tear a statue down.

    It’s amazing how the devil has all of fooled… We see ourselves as if we’re complicated beings yet we’re not.. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against a spiritual wickedness in high places Ephesians 6:12. We we’re created thru one blood. Do we not know that one day we will all be held accountable for what we say and do? Race wars, covid-19 it’s all meant to distract us for what’s really coming.. we are being lead away from God I can only imagine how God feels as he sees his children fighting amongst each other. Jeremiah 4:22 King James Version (KJV)
    22 For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge HOSEA 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

    BLM are murderers. By calling to de-fund the police, they are putting the lives of innocent families at risk. Innocent children, including Avielle Wakefield, Mckenzie Ellieot, and Laylah Peterson have been murdered by criminak gangsters in the past month. Black Lives Matter is destroying lives with their incessant anarchism and hate towards American society. The civil rights movement of the 1960s, according to libertarian Bob Woodson, was about bettering the lives of African Americans subjugated under apartheid. Black Live’s Matter’s “social justice” is doing the exact opposite. Thank God I don’t live in America.

    So after all of the churches are destroyed in the name of the BLM god they can go after the synagogues and mosques. It’ll be a wonderful utopian world!

    First Jesus was a Jew not a WASP, second he needs to get struck by lightning, Lastly, the BLM movement should be banned by Christians due to views on homosexuality and anti Gospel teaching
