An Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania has blamed “America’s racist god” for the killing of Michael Brown.
Anthea Butler, A regular guest on MSNBC, blamed America’s blood thirsty “god of white supremacy,” for the Ferguson tragedy in which police officer Darren Wilson fatally shot teenager Michael Brown during a violent altercation.
“America’s racist god requires black people’s blood to atone for the sins committed by its followers,” Butler writes in Religion Dispatches, an independent non-profit news and commentary blog hosted by the University of Southern California.
“This time, the blood shed in sacrifice to this god of white supremacy was Michael Brown’s,” Butler writes.
Butler continues by likening prosecutor Robert McCulloch to Pontius Pilate and alleging that Darren Wilson acted as agent to the “god of white supremacy.”
