[Ed. – The so-called protesters are looking to see how much of American culture they can control exclusively or replace as revenge for slavery.]
Americans strongly reject the call by a leading Black Lives Matter activist to remove “white Jesus” from churches and elsewhere. His message resonates far stronger among black Americans than others.
Sixty-five percent (65%) continue to believe that Jesus Christ was the son of God who came to earth to die for our sins, although that’s down from 77% four years ago. Twenty-two percent (22%) do not share that belief, while 13% are not sure.
Support for removing “white Jesus” from churches is far higher among blacks (31%) than it is among whites (9%) and other minority Americans (13%). Blacks are also much stronger believers than the others that Jesus was the son of God.
