According to the New York Post, a Manhattan man is suing the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the paintings on display that depict Jesus Christ as an “Aryan” male. Per the story, the plaintiff Justin Renel Joseph finds that:
“The masterpieces are ‘offensive aesthetic whitewashing’ of the reality that the Savior, as a native of the Middle Eastern region, had ‘black hair like wool and skin of bronze color.'” Joseph, 33, is acting as his own lawyer.
A few of the offending paintings include The Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes by Tintoretto (ca. 1545); The Holy Family with Angels by Sebastiano Ricci (ca. 1700); and The Resurrection by Perugino (ca. 1502).
Clearly Joseph has to sue the Metropolitan instead of all those dead painters.
