And the News Reporter says: “Jesus is White”

Black Cool, Diversity in the Media, Social Justice

Here, I leave you with this video, slam poet Crystal Valentine recites a very powerful message referring to when Megyn Kelly, Fox News host, declared during a broadcast that the historical Jesus Christ and fictional Santa Claus are both white men.

As I listened to Valentine’s voice, spitting words that gave me chills, the sadness and anger I felt when she said, “How can she say Jesus was a white man when he died the blackest way possible? With his hands up? With his mother watching? Crying at his feet?” It reminded me at how much change still needs to come our way.

I don’t want to say much on this post because her words are enough.

 

Thoughts?
