First there was Rachel Dolezal a white civil rights activist who pretended to be black so she could be President of the NAACP.
Now, today it was revealed that one of the key organizers of the so-called “black lives matter” group is a white guy who has been lying for years and claiming he’s actually black. Well, now more info is coming out on him and one interesting tidbit seems to show he scammed Oprah Winfrey for a scholarship that was supposed to only go to black people.
#BlackLivesMatter organizer, Shaun King is actually a white guy but has been claiming for a decade that he’s really a black guy.
Turns out, there’s even more about this fake black guy:
Shaun King, an author and writer who is one of the leading voices speaking out against police brutality on social media, has claimed he is mixed.
King has claimed in past interviews that his father is black and his mother is white and of Irish descent, but his birth certificate lists his parents as both white.
In addition, King’s race is listed as white in the police report of the aforementioned attack that occurred while he was in high school.
King also applied for and then accepted an Oprah scholarship to Morehouse College – which are only given to black men – but claims he never lied to receive that scholarship.
So let me get this straight. He claims he has a BLACK father and WHITE mother. His birth certificate lists his parents as BOTH WHITE. He has a police record which says he’s WHITE. He applied and accepted a scholarship for ONLY BLACK men to a historically black Morehouse College. However, he claims he never lied to receive that scholarship. Ok – wink, wink! Pass the Kool Aid!
WOW! Talk about a black and white issue! Hey DUDE! You LIED! You said you were WHITE and you accepted a BLACK ONLY scholarship to a BLACK school and scammed Oprah!
In addition Shaun King added to the fire with more lies:
In his Daily Kos diary, King refers to himself as a “brother,” writing: “Oprah Winfrey paid my way through Morehouse. The leadership scholarship that I received from her is why I have a college degree today. Five hundred other brothers have the exact same story.”
OK, I’m pretty sure that he did get through college with a college degree because of Oprah, but the five hundred other brothers…..REALLY? I don’t think so.
In August 2014, King wrote on Twitter that he was father to three “black girls,” while, six months earlier, he claimed to be father to four.
You know. I’m a parent. I have three sons. I will never forget I have three sons. So what is it Shaun? Three or four sons?
In 1995, which at least two reports have described as “Kentucky’s first hate crime,” did not match up with a police report from the case. King claimed he was attacked by up to a dozen ‘racist’ and ‘redneck’ students, while official records showed the altercation involved only ONE student.
He claimed that he suffered a ‘brutal’ beating that left him clinging to life, while the police report characterized his injuries as ‘minor’.
King must have known while giving interviews as late as 2015 that Vicki Pate was tracking down his family history. But he continued to deliver craftily-worded answers to interview questions that gave the impression he was a person of color and that he had been the victim of hate crimes.
Shaun lied about “Kentucky’s first hate crime”. He was not attacked by a dozen students nor did he suffer a “brutal brutal beating”. I guess after you lie so much, you start believing your own lies. Either that or you have to remember what you said, when and how, to cover it up. Guess what? When you tell the truth – you don’t have to worry about covering it up over time, nor do you have to remember what you told and when you told it, to whomever. Just tell the truth! It’s that simple!
There’s more folks.
And THIS is really good!
Sean’s real father…
And Guess What? He’s white!
Hey Shaun! That would be called a “little white lie”.
