It’s more indicative of this strain of thought to show people the least example of “White supremacy”, just to show where this will eventually go. If you think civility in social discourse is a good thing : you are a white supremacist too. If you think medicine over witch doctor solutions is preferable in treating the sick: you are a white supremacist too. If you think the truth and it’s pursuit should take precedence over falsehoods (however honestly felt): you are a white supremacist too. They leave people no escape from choosing a side. Good luck with reason (white supremacy too) when in the final analysis,these people will simply hate you for not being them. But hey, the Nazis etc

Daithi,
There's no doubt that there's hysteria over alleged white supremacy particularly in the USA post Trump's victory under scrutiny most of these comments aren't remotely in favour of white supremacy or racist. Having said that I can't see how portraying a man from his supposed background as white, can be anything but racist

David, do you think black people should be depicted as starting the theology at the root cause of every major war and social ill today? A Hitlerian proposal if ever there was one, but I’m game if they are!

( I’m taking the piss incase that’s not clear, but the dichotomy of how to view this is valid)

Better still, a pesky Palestinian!

Daithi,
It's not something that worries me personally. I don't think there's enough evidence to take Jesus seriously as a historical figure, never mind worry about his skin pigmentation. Saying that i can see how people, particuarly non white Christians would be a bit peeved at this portrayal of their god

David , whether you think it’s a joke or not, very real, serious claims are made against the religion. Have the Palestinians not enough on their plate with out apologising for Jesus Wars and kid diddling priests? Have a heart.
