Don Lemon: Christians Need to Realize Jesus Isn't 'a White Hippie From Sweden'

You have to love it — not really — when some political commentator for the radical media uses their identity characteristics as a reason for why they feel they can say whatever pops into their head on a public forum and feel outraged when people call them out for said “hot take.”

CNN host Don Lemon joined the brainiacs on “The View” on Monday to shill his new book “This is the Fire,” but also to inform white people what they can do to end racism. And as we all know, Lemon is a civil rights expert because he’s black and he’s gay and he can read a teleprompter.

Meghan McCain, the “conservative” voice on “The View,” asked Lemon what his advice to the black community was in his book after saying that there’s “no question white people have to shoulder the responsibility for bringing about an end to racism.”

Lemon paraphrased a quote from “social commentator” James Baldwin saying that white and black people “have to come together and be willing to fix this thing,” 

Or you know, we could stop listening to the race hustlers in the media, politics, Hollywood and sports and the problem would fix itself. Just a thought.

Anyway, Lemon went on to opine about how Americans “have to start being realistic about God and the Bible.”

A good way of starting is to present the true identity of Jesus, and that is as a black or brown person rather than someone who looks like a white hippie from Sweden or Norway. And I think we should start with a true depiction of what Jesus looked like and put that in your home. Either a black Jesus or a brown Jesus, because we know that Jesus looked more like a Muslim or someone who is dark rather than someone who is a blonde-looking carpenter.

I think Lemon has some kind of prejudice against what a Swedish person typically looks like, because he brought up the apparent Swedish version of Jesus again.

“When your children ask you, ‘Who is this?’ ‘This is Jesus. Jesus was Middle Eastern. Bethlehem was not in Sweden.’”

Maybe it’s just me, but this is the first time I’ve heard of Swedish Jesus. I thought He was just Jesus Christ. 

The point of ridiculing Lemon for what he said here isn’t about what shade of skin Jesus had. Lemon deserves ridicule because, much like the majority of people in the elitist media, they make everything about race because they have no original thoughts of their own without basing everything on identity politics.
