Social justice activist Shaun King unleashed a barrage of comments on social media Monday claiming that statues of Jesus Christ are "a form of white supremacy" and should be torn down.
King is the co-founder of Real Justice PAC and shares his views on injustice through social media.
His remarks come in the wake of George Floyd's death on May 25 and the surge of protests and activism that ensued over racial injustice and equality.
Across the US, protesters have vandalized and torn down statues that have ties to historical injustice and now statues of Jesus have come under scrunity.
In a series of tweets, King declared that "statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been."
He continued, "All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus... They are a gross form of white supremacy. Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda. They should all come down." "White Jesus is a lie" and "a tool of white supremacy created and advanced to help white people use the faith as a tool of oppression."
King's comments have received a strong response from the Christian community.
