Burn Pictures Of Jesus As White Man, Demands #BurnWhiteJesus Social Media Challenge
A new far left campaign called “Burn Cracker Jesus” is sweeping the internet. The purpose is to liberate yourself by torching photos of Cracker Jesus.
The Illinois Review reported:
There’s a new social media challenge sweeping the Internet called #BurnWhiteJesus, or the White Jesus Picture challenge.
The movement calls on people to post videos of themselves online burning pictures of Jesus, according to Inquistr.
The reason behind the challenge is racism, according to the religious education website Patheos.com, who says the common portrayal of Jesus as a white man “is used to advance white supremacy around the world.”
“Mr. Savannah Black” posted his video which shows him explaining the challenge and then burning two pictures of Jesus.
Savanna Black explains the “Burn the Cracker Jesus” campaign in his video.
Black says if you want to have “some true liberation” you’ll burn photos of Cracker Jesus.
The movement has many supporters:
finally a hashtag that encompasses all I stand for. #burnwhitejesus
