Depiction of White Jesus Has Been Used to Kill Millions; Shows 'History of White Supremacy'

Post  fshnski on Tue Dec 17, 2013 4:48 pm

Author Tim Wise said on Monday's OutFront that the historical depiction of Jesus as white has resulted in slavery and genocide and "speaks to the entire history of white supremacy."

"Here's the reality. The image of a white Jesus has been used to justify enslavement, conquest, colonialism, the genocide of indigenous peoples. There are literally millions of human beings whose lives have been snuffed out by people who conquered under the banner of a white god," Wise claimed. [Video coming soon.]

He added that "black folks can think Jesus is black and view Christ as black, but at the end of the day, the image that has been used to dominate Christianity in this world and on this planet is the white image."

Wise was on CNN to discuss Fox anchor Megyn Kelly's controversial claim that Santa Claus and Jesus were white. Back in July, he said on CNN that the Supreme Court "basically called 40 million black folks that word [the N-word]" by striking down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act.

Joining Wise in his backlash against Kelly, filmmaker Rochelle Oliver accused her and others of racism against black people:

"[P]eople who think like Megyn Kelly believe it's more comfortable for them to believe that there is a white man flying around the earth with magical reindeer than to believe that a black man in the year 2013 can actually be kind, can be loving and can actually be caring toward children."

Islam prohibits the depiction of Mohammed, with death upon anyone who does so. Perhaps that is why there are so many Afro-Americans who readily convert to Islam. This cartoon has the modern Danish artist in hiding.
