New York Daily News writer Shaun King came under fire recently after calling for the removal of white men. In a series of angry tweets, King called Christians ‘fake’ and ‘white supremacists.’
“Shame on every ‘Christian’ among us supporting a ban on immigrants and refugees,” he tweeted. “Your faith is as fake as a $3 bill. To support a ban on immigrants & refugees, while calling yourself a Christian, it’s not faith, its white supremacy disguised as religion.”
“Trump and conservatives don’t have any real interest in making America safe or lessening the violence. That’s a ruse, a fabrication,” King tweeted. But he didn’t stop there. He also published a controversial article on the topic of mass shootings and banning white men.
“On this past Sunday, in a bit of tongue-in-cheek hyperbole, I tweeted that if our country truly wanted to ban a demographic in the name of halting mass shootings, it would be best to ban white people,” King wrote. “After all, white people, white men to be particular, and not African-Americans or Latinos or immigrants or Muslims are responsible for the overwhelming majority of America’s mass shootings.”
“What I really wanted to see, though, was whether or not the mention of such a ban would irritate the very conservatives whose candidate of choice, Donald Trump, has repeatedly called for such a ban on Muslim immigrants when the truth is that only one Muslim immigrant has ever participated in the 30 deadliest mass shootings in modern American history,” he continued.
