Pro-Trump Christian Radio Host and Author Eric Metaxas Says ‘Jesus Was White’

Pro-Trump Christian radio host and author Eric Metaxas announced on Twitter that “Jesus was white” in an effort to dismiss the existence of “white privilege.”

Fox News host Megyn Kelly made a similar claim in 2013, and was debunked by The Atlantic: “The scholarly consensus is actually that Jesus was, like most first-century Jews, probably a dark-skinned man.”

Metaxas pretended to talk like a black man by mispronouncing words on Twitter on May 22, and later deleted the tweet, but not before screenshots were made.
