Justin Renel Joseph of Manhattan is suing New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art because of the way Jesus is depicted in a few paintings.

Mr Joseph, who is acting as his own lawyer, argues the “racist” paintings depicting an “Aryan” Jesus should be removed and that their inclusion at the attraction was an “extreme case of discrimination”, reported the New York Post.

He claims Christ had “black hair like wool and skin of bronze colour” and that, as a man with the same physical traits, he felt “rejected”.

The offending paintings causing him “personal stress” were ‘The Holy Family with Angels’ by Sebastiano Ricci; ‘The Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes’ by Tintoretto; ‘The Crucifixion’ by Francesco Granacci; and ‘The Resurrection’ by Perugino
