(Fox News)   First they came for Christopher Columbus, and I said nothing, for who cares about that guy anyway. Then they came for the Confederate generals, and I remained silent, for I was not a Bubba. Then they came for Jesus, and I- wait, what?   (foxnews.com) divider line

Shaun King is a moron.

Jesus was obviously brown. He was from the middle east. Statues portraying Jesus as a white man are white washing him and that's a not so passive aggressive form of white supremacy.

Did you guys know that Beethoven was probably black? That's quite the rabbit hole. I'm curious how many other historical figures of importance were white washed over the years.

Meh, it's Shaun King, not exactly a power broker in any circles.

No, but he still has the ear of a lot of the rabid left. If he starts this up, he will get the hardcores attacking churches, then we are all screwed.

I hope the backlash to Trump and his trash voters is far reaching and extreme.
 
2020-06-23 8:53:13 AM  
If he really wanted to set off a fun argument, he could either discuss the arc of the Christianization of African slaves, or the ways in which Jesus' admonition to "not resist an evil man" or challenge unjust authority helps perpetuate unjust power structures, but I suspect Fox would treat that discussion even less seriously than it treated this one.

When the right picks out Shaun King to attack, the left is more than happy to join them in denouncing that grifter

You know who else came for Jesus?

Ummm... any statues of Jesus on public land (unless they have very compelling historical value) should 100% be taken down.

Butterflew:  Did you guys know that Beethoven was probably black?

Well, they kept trying to tell him, but he just wouldn't listen.

Mary was from out of state and God raped her, who knows what her kids skin would look like? But anyway, ifJesus can't lead black people because he has light skin then how can Shaun King lead black peolle?
 
2020-06-23 8:56:44 AM  
Religious statues should be nowhere near public land.  But I'm not sure I've ever seen a statue of Jesus outside of a church.  Shaun King serves a purpose, but you've got to take this guy with a grain of salt.

shastacola: Meh, it's Shaun King, not exactly a power broker in any circles.


He's not exactly wrong on this one, though. Assuming Jesus existed at all as described in the gospels, he certainly wasn't the pasty-faced white guy with flowing locks we see in paintings.

Ok. So? He's not really wrong (white Jesus HAS been a subtle and overt tool of white supremacy in the United States), but he's also not saying people should go on private property and destroy them.

But I guess we can all be outraged... for some reason.

I've seen portraits of Beethoven, he looks dead-on Bill Murray.

Also, this is fark. There is not nor should there be any expectation that the articles are read.

There's a great bit in Rushdie's Satanic Verses where an Indian woman, thinking of converting to Christianity, asks her white priest what color Jesus was. He panicks while trying to come up with the "right" answer that will win her conversion (white or brown?), thinks of Shiva, and announces that Jesus was blue.

Gosh, if only we had some principle enshrined in the highest level of our entire legal system that keeps the government from touching your statues.

Keep your jesii off public land and on your own property and there's no drama.

Man, I know so many people who only worship Black Jesus. Calling for the removal of an appropriation might make logical sense, but this is like asking for trans rights during the civil war.

Yeah it should happen. But it ain't gonna happen now.
 
2020-06-23 9:01:43 AM  
Sure, OK.

Any Jesus statues--white or black or green--funded by the public  (or displayed on public property) should be removed.

/Nobody is tearing down the empty Johnny Reb whiskey decanter statue in your trailer house's bathroom family room.
//Nobody cares about your Jesus statue in your church...except god.
///You shall not make idols for yourselves or erect an image or pillar, and you shall not set up a figured stone in your land to bow down to it
 
2020-06-23 9:01:58 AM  
But then again, Jesus is just like Santa Claus.  He can be any race you want him to be.
 
2020-06-23 9:02:00 AM  
Depictions of white Jesus are the epitome of a white supremacist mindset. But what I want to know is, where are all these statues of Jesus on public land in the U.S.? I've never seen one.
 
2020-06-23 9:02:01 AM  
Shaun King is a rare breed - the left-wing grifter.  All the rest of the grifters are right-wing.  It makes sense that Fox News would be the only ones who care about a left-wing grifter.

Yeah, he's wrong about this (and so much else). He's not talking about having a conversation about what color Son of Sky God is, he's talking about tearing down statues of Jesus. Not public statues, church statues. It's dumb and serves the right wing narrative and gets Talcum X clicks, which is his sole purpose for saying dumb shiat.
