A leader for the Black Lives Matter movement says he believes Jesus “is the most famous black radical revolutionary”. In the same interview he said he wants “black sovereignty by any means necessary.” Hawk Newsome, head of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, told Fox News he wants to “burn down the system” if the country “doesn’t give us what we want.” When asked about his comfortability with using violence to advance his cause, Newsome said the U.S. “is built upon violence” and likened it to “self-defence.” “It seems to be the hypocrisy of America that when black people start talking about arming themselves and defending themselves, the talk is violent, but when white people grab assault rifles and go to our nation state capitals, it’s all good,” he said.
“If this country doesn’t give us what we want then we will burn down the system and replace it,” Newsome answered. “I could be speaking figuratively or literally. Like, let’s be very real and observe the history of the 1960s. When black people were rioting we had the highest growth in wealth and property ownership.” He went on to say: “I just want black liberation and black sovereignty, by any means necessary.” Sovereignty, it should be noted, is a synonym for supremacy. At another point in the interview, Newsome was asked about a quote from Martin Luther King, Jr., who said, “Let us be dissatisfied until that day when nobody will shout, ‘White Power!’ when nobody will shout ‘Black Power!’ but everybody will talk about God’s power and human power.”
In response, the Black Lives Matter leader said he “loves the Lord.” “And my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, is the most famous black radical revolutionary in history,” he continued. “He was treated just like Dr. King. He was arrested on occasions, and he was also crucified or assassinated. This is what happens to black activists, we are killed by the government.” Newsome continually said that Jesus was black. “And it’s just the hypocrisy and the white supremacy in America and in the world that show us portraits of a pasty, white Jesus,” he said. “Jesus was not white, we all know this.” The interviewer noted that Christians of all skin tones and nationalities portray Jesus in different ways, whilst acknowledging He was born and raised in the Middle Eastern world.
