Shaun King fears for his life after he discovered a private Facebook group plotting to take him out.

The transracial activist says the private group is run by law enforcement officials who wrote comments discussing ways to kill him.

"A private Facebook group of law enforcement officers is literally plotting to kill me," King wrote in a post on Instagram on Thursday. "Sadly, I receive death threats daily."
 

The 40-year-old Kentucky native angered Christians when he called for protesters to tear down statues of "white" Jesus Christ and destroy stained glass windows and other images of Jesus and his "white" mother.

The transracial Caucasian activist, who claims to be a Black man, says historians believe Jesus likely had the appearance of people who typically lived in the Middle East rather than the white, bearded man depicted in the Holy Bible and other Christian literature.

"Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been."

He added: "In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down."

King took to Twitter to complain that he received death threats after his anti-religion rant was not well-received.
