Minister Calls for Boycott of ‘Son of God’ Movie; White Jesus Offensive to Blacks
that the image of a white Jesus is racist and offensive to African
Americans, a North Carolina based minister is calling for a national
boycott “Son of God” movie that opens in theaters this weekend.
Minister Paul Scott aka TRUTH Minista of the Durham, NC based Messianic Afrikan Nation says
that he is outraged that even in 2014, many people in this country
still promote the, historically, inaccurate image of a Caucasian
He is asking that the black community not support the film which is
to be released on February 28, which, ironically is the last day of Black History Month.
Although the issue of the black ethnicity of Jesus dates back as far
as the 19th century, courtesy of such clergymen as Bishop Henry McNeal
Turner, the issue generated new interest last December when Fox News
host Megyn Kelly announced to children that Santa Claus and Jesus
Christ were white men.
The white image of Jesus has also affected Hip Hop. For instance,
Professor Griff and Ras Kass, openly challenged the image. However,
recently rappers like The Game and Kanye West have brought ”White
Jesuses” on stage with them.
Scott said that rappers need to speak “the truth that will make us
free” instead of perpetuating the lie that keeps us mentally and
spiritually enslaved. Scott, who coined the phrase Afrikan Liberation
Theology (the Black Liberation Theology for the Hip Hop generation) in
1999, has appeared on numerous national talk shows promoting the idea of
a black Messiah.
TRUTH MINISTA’s controversial essay “Hip Hop Children of a Lesser
God” is featured in the anthology ”Black Church and Hip Hop Culture:
Toward Bridging the Generational Divide.
It should be offensive to anyone who is not a regular blond haired blue-eyed yt person. They still doing this in 2014 when everybody knows what Jesus possibly looked like? Damn yt ppl just need constant confirmation of their position in history don't they.
Oh and stay tuned for the blond haired Russel Crowe version of Noah and his incredible ark. The Jews must wonder why the bible writers were so obsessed with writing about all these Europeans running around the Middle East. Oh wait...
That Jayzuz aint sexy tho.....they want their deity to be attractive as they imagine and rippped. They ain't trying to have posters of a dude they'd assume is an uneducated illegal immigrant on image alone.
