Race-baiting grifter Shaun King, known for his years-long performance of pretending to be a black man despite mountains of evidence proving he is white and once identified as white, is now attempting to get back in the spotlight by leading the charge in the campaign to destroy churches and statues of "white European" Jesus Christ.
Specifically, King is attempting to cancel Jesus, who he claims is a symbol of white supremacy.
"Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down," said King. "They are a form of white supremacy, and always have been."
The Bible provides few hints as to what Christ looked like. It's implied that he did not stand out amongst his peers, as a Jewish man from Bethlehem. Judas also had to point Jesus out in the garden upon his arrest, meaning he likely did not look too dissimilar from what the typical Jewish man of that day, age, and area.
But King's tweet isn't actually about Jesus, or "white supremacy." It's about destroying heritage, culture, and monuments of what created the countries we live in.
The "tear them down" attitude displayed by King is the same one that has now seen beloved president Theodore Roosevelt be cancelled, as New York's Museum of Natural History has now announced that the statue will be torn down. Where do we draw the line? If Theodore Roosevelt is being cancelled now, there will surely be a push to rename the beloved Teddy Bear, named after the president.
King tweets that that we should "destroy stained glass."
We should celebrate our past, learn from our history, and strive to do better in the future. Self-hatred, while not a deadly sin, certainly should receive an honourable mention. King, in this regard, can be compared ISIS, or Nazis. ISIS sees no problem destroying Syrian monuments which have stood for thousands of years, yet it's the exact thing that King calls for.
It takes a certain kind of radical evil to believe doing so is just.
