Minister Calls for Boycott of ‘Son of God’ Movie; White Jesus Offensive to Blacks

son of god - poster


*Saying 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 Christ.

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...
