The Rachel Dolezal hoax seems to be contagious. Dolezal put on a black persona so well that she acquired a position at the NAACP. All she did was frizz her hair and get a tan.
Now, key militant “Black Lives Matter” figure Shaun King is being investigated for pretending to be black and lying about his race so he could receive a black-only college scholarship from Oprah Winfrey.
Friends and family members confirm that King, who claimed to have a black father, has been lying all along.
Even Don Lemon, a leftwingnut hack from CNN weighed in. During a back-and-forth texting, Lemon asked him for the truth:
‘Initially he did not answer but later referred to himself as biracial,’ said Lemon.
‘But then when I asked him if that’s what it shows on his birth certificate I did not hear back from him. No answer on that.’
You know it’s bad when a leftwing activist can’t get a straight answer out of a fellow leftwing activist.
King has said 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.
……In a 2014 interview with Liberal America, King spoke about white privilege, and how best to get white Americans to understand the idea of white privilege.
‘Some of how we get all people to understand privilege is simply to tell our story – one story at a time. I try to do that on Twitter and share stories of others I know,’ he said.
‘You can never truly understand how others feel, but at least being aware is a good start.’
As for his Oprah scholarship, he wrote in one Daily Kos post; ‘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.’
“Brothers”. “What do a brotha gotta do to get some reespect up in heah”? King’s entire autobiography and identity is a concocted sham. He got a buzz cut, grew a goatee, and hung around with blacks because that’s how he ‘identifies’.
Nothing like a faked ethnicity to fight “white privilege”.
Shaun King’s biography has attracted the attention of bloggers and journalists thanks to several bizarre inconsistencies in his public claims. He often struggles when asked to recall basic facts about his own life. For instance, 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.
It is of course possible that a family tragedy is responsible for the inconsistency, but the unexplained change in biographical details is not a one-off. In October 2009, King claimed to have endured four spinal surgeries. By February 2010, the number of surgeries had shrunk to three. There is also some confusion about when an alleged car crash may or may not have happened.
……This month, more details have emerged from King’s account that do not match up with the police report or eyewitness accounts from journalists who noticed that King’s public claims did not square with reality.
……Breitbart contacted Vicki Pate, who has been investigating King’s claims for several years. Pate provided key documents that appear to show that King has two white parents and that he has been lying to the public about his race.
One of them is his birth certificate, listing his parents as Naomi Kay Fleming and Jeffery Wayne King and a birth date of September 17, 1979 in Versailles, Kentucky. King had already told journalists his mother was white. So all that remained for Pate to determine was whether his father was white too.
King has always claimed that his father is black. But King’s father, Jeffery, is white, says Pate. She points to a man born 11 November 1955 in Campbell, Kentucky who has been the subject of multiple arrests, including for motoring and drug offences. That birth date would make him 23 at the time of Shaun King’s birth, the same age given on Shaun’s birth certificate.
Black Conservatives Fund PAC has offered to donate $25,000 to Black Lives Matter if King can prove that his father is black or if he agrees to a DNA test. So far, no word.
This is a side-by-side of Shaun King and his father Jeffrey:
And a family picture with his mother and sibling:
But he’s really black, because his black wife says so.
King responded to the fact-finding with tirades on Twitter and Facebook. It’s all because of “racism, white supremacy, lies, a rightwing conspiracy”; the usual load of bullshit when you get caught in a lie. Projecting blame on the people who expose your lies is the standard procedure.
What’s really funny about controversies like this is that even with bi-racial ‘halfricans’ like B. Hussein Obama, it’s always the black side of the DNA that trumps the white side if only for political gain and preferential treatment.
By the way, King has quite a record of shady con games.
Winfrey should demand a refund.
