Shaun King

Black Lives Matter activists turned on transracial fraud Shaun King after he organized Justice Together, collected donations, and then abandoned the movement without any explanation.

One former JT member, Chandra Paz, created the Twitter.com hashtag #ShaunKingLetMeDown to call out King for abandoning yet another movement.

Others retweeted the hashtag and a new movement to expose King was born.

The #ShaunKingLetMeDown hashtag got the attention of some in the Black Lives Matters camp who are weary of King starting organizations to promote black injustice when all he really cares about promoting is himself.

Then conscious rapper Talib Kweli jumped in to defend King after former JT director, Crystal tweeted him the hashtag. Kweli started a minor skirmish when he accused former JT members of having "hurt feelings" and "dragging" King on Twitter for no reason.

Clearly Kweli is one of the blind and dumb Shaun King followers who shamelessly drink King's Koolaid.

According to Kweli, it isn't important if King creates social justice organizations to ask for donations then bounces without any action -- as long as King is down for the cause.

    I wonder which one of them or the other countless "exposes" are going to replace him . . .

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I could care less about Shaun King. Him or Rachel. Tired of both of them. I would rather talk about Mizzou and the Prez agreeing to resign. Can somebody tell me exactly what racial issues did he mishandle that led to the protests?

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    It's always somebody waiting in the wings!

    People get too caught in their feelings about stuff. A cause is a cause. Not one person. For every good cause their are plenty who hop on for personal gain. There are employees stealing from companies, children slapping parents, millionaire CEOs bouncing payroll. Cut the fat and keep it pushing. Learn from allowing any and everyone represent you and get better representation. Or better yet, be the representation. Don't get stagnant. Keep the cause going.

    By the way, all this mess is confusing. I still can't pronounce Rachel Dontbeblack's last name.

    No bish. Only YOU are responsible for your OWN "professional life/reputation". Do your own hw about what you sign up for, participate in. Its like...accepting an internship/position over the phone without researching the company. FOH.

  • Too Many Colors

    That's a whole mess

    Incidents that have gone back as far as 2007: cotton thrown about, the n word written in some young man's room, a swastika drawn in feces. The students felt that the president didn't react properly to these situations. I'm proud of those kitties for taking a stand.

    Concerns about the lack of concern for offensive racial incidents on the campus of the University of Missouri have been percolating for some time. The school's 1,200-plus acre campus is located in Columbia, which is about 120 miles west of Ferguson, Missouri, where protests and riots erupted last year over the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown.

    The group "Concerned Student 1950" — named for the year the university accepted its first black student — said students tried to approach Wolfe during the school's homecoming parade in early October to address "Mizzou's history of racial violence and exclusivity" but his car drove away.

    On Friday, Wolfe said that he regretted his reaction because it "seemed like I did not care," according to The Associated Press.

  • Yoni

    So he's stealing folks gofundme coins??? I'm not down for THAT cause. No suh!

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    At least 8 years of incidents. Wow. Kudos to an organized effort that gained tangible results.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Wait...so did he take the money with him?

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    It "seemed" like you didn't care?! You them the King ignoring his peasants treatment and you think it seemed you didn't care?! Wow. Dude is something else. I can see what the people were upset. I'm most impressed with the football players and the coaches that stood behind them. College football is big business. HUGE business, in fact. Even on crappy teams. So for them to put that on the line, to affect a change, good job, young men!

  • iWasteTime

    I saw that this morning.
    I bet they get it right, since the football team said we will KNAT suit up!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Speaking of cotton. Have you seen the video of the girl pretending to interview Raven Symone? lol.

  • Sexy CJ

    I excused his behavior until I couldn't. SK talks a good game, but he's all about the promotional spin ~Chandra Paz........

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Have you heard about what is going on at Yale...or Duke for that matter.??

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    LOL @ cotton taking you to Raven. What did the girl say in her mock interview?

  • Buttercup

    I'll be able to answer affirmative in 3 minutes.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    No, please enlighten me.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    THIS!!!! Now he may be a fraud, but if the info was out there, then bully for you for not doing your due diligence.

  • jussaying

    i don't care about shaun king.... but anyone in here watching jane the virgin? lol i am so damn mad about last week's episode they better right this wrong. hmph. calling the writers.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Interviewer: Raven, what is your race?
    Fake Raven: Human.
    Interviewer: Well, what is my race?
    Fake Raven: Ni--a

    Fake Raven: Personally, I don't wear cotton.
    Interviewer: Why not?
    Fake Raven: Because yall pick it (insert her irritating laugh)
    Interviewer: It's 2015...we don't pick that anymore.
    Fake Raven: Well, yall should. (insert irritating laugh)

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Before Halloween one of the administrators sent out a letter and basically said you can be as racist as you want to be. Wear all the blackface you want...you won't be punished. Then there was a greek party that only allowed white females. Administration was silent. The article basically details all of the racist stuff that has happened recently and the fact that the President didn't speak out against anything until like a week later.

    Same thing with Duke. A lot of vandalism and things have been occurring on campuses. People are defacing black organizations fliers and placing racial epithets on it.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Wow...that's crazy! How is this still happening in 2015?? Sad.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    According to Kweli, it isn’t important if King creates social justice organizations to ask for donations then bounces without any action — as long as King is down for the cause.
    Kweli is correct.

  • Miany

    huh? how is Kweli correct? How is one down for the cause if all they do is scream about the cause and collect money for themselves? any of these coins going towards community development? any thing reputable? You aint down for shii if you steal from it..you just aint... im down for my momma, would I steal from her??? nah son

  • Too Many Colors

    Are we surprised about Duke tho? Duke who said Muslims could pray on campus center then back tracked? Duke as in Lacrosse-Gate? I was at the N & O during that whole entire fuggery of events. I'm not sure wtf happened. But something did. Duke Lacrosse-Gate ruined my damn life damn near all the hours went into that there bullchit of the players covering their exploits. I hate Duke. With all that I am. Fugg their white privilege.

  • Miany

    I aint mad at the fool in this meme...fake it till you make it baby lol rofl

  • AnonymousRose

    huh?

  • Too Many Colors

    With Duke it's not just blacks. They stay in it with: Muslim community. Got in trouble for an Anti-Asian American frat party in 2012. They equal opportunity racists over there baby. And unlike the University of Missouri's of the world? They can and will continue to do what in the fugg they want. They are private and that tobacco money lonnnnnng.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Man, I forgot about that Lacrosse debacle. You were still at your paper back then? Then I know you saw too many details about that situation. I agree with you. There was something murky in the water even if it wasn't exactly what was originally said.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Dayum! I did not know it was that bad. Had a friend go to grad school there, I have to ask her about her experience there.

  • Too Many Colors

    I aint leave paper til 2010. Lacrosse-Gate was 06. All of 06. And most of 07. Im from Raleigh. Duke 25 minutes away. They been a hot racist ass mess my whole life. Folks who work there complain etc. A mess. I get interview offers from DCRI from time to time. Duke Clinical Research Institute. Nah. I'm good. ??

  • Futuredocdonte

    I've been oblivious to King and Deray since I left Twitter

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Loose based allegations that you found far to easy believe. Like they say show the receipts. One piece of gossip and people run with it because they have a gripe with old dude. The article posed by SR is a biased satirical piece of garbage. But she does a lot of that on this site so its no big deal. Controversy sales I get it. What's worse is all the people on here who eat up everything that is posted simply because its printed in black and white. Why are black people so threatened by people like this dude. You ready to go to war with a Shaun King, but wont say ish to Ben Carson fake ass.. Smh......I guess..

  • brooklyn23

    Maybe Jeffrey was being sarcastic? Im giving him the benefit of the doubt

  • Too Many Colors

    Record scratch...you left Twitter? Fuggin WHY? Who in the fugg DID it??

  • Futuredocdonte

    I took a sebaticle and whilst away I was like ain't no need. Then I logged in to see if anything had changed and saw that the WHOLE CHURCH started following me including the First Lady ? All the confirmation I needed :: settings, deactivate:: ???

    I loooooove that show, I may be an episode behind tho.

    Are you talking about Petra's slim thick ass getting pregnant with Rafael's scrumptious put this p*ssy on his eyebrows sperm??

  • jussaying

    OMG YASSS.. runs toward you, picks you up and spiiiins.

    OMG YES WHAT SHADE OF CRAZY DO YOU GOTTA BE!! Bish got preggers by a turkey baster tho... I can't remember if that was last episode I saw or one before it considering I literally binge watched season 1 & up to tonight's over the past 3 days or so. Rafael found out it was his the last one I saw and he is nottttt happy. Also Jane kissed Michael. I can't stand Michael.

  • jussaying

    also lmfao i had to reread this... i'm so dead & this scrumptious put this pucci on his eyebrows lmfao. But YAS, I love me some Rafael too. #TeamRaf i just wish he could catch a damn break omg. Jane got on my nerves when she was knocked up last season always on his d about that hotel. I mean granted it was messed up he missed a few sessions but damn. The hotel was about to go under would she like them all to move in to Alba's home orrrr..??

  • Use_Coasters_aka_Sol_88

    LOL LOL *jumps up & down with you* *smells your neck a lil*

    I wanted to kick her ass!!
    She has that bad ass shape tho.....
    Oh well, got my dude stuck like she high off crazy!

    I binged watch & catch up on Hulu, I saw the episode you're talking about.
    I like Michael! He's just a good eye who got dealt an effed up hand.
    He needs a sister Lol

  • Use_Coasters_aka_Sol_88

    ??? I'm sorry but did you see that episode when he took his shirt off??
    He looks like he sweats seasoned broth. Just delicious........

    & that KILLED me, let that man do his job!
    I was mad when he said he was gonna provide for her & their broke asses got mad.
    That's not charity! That's stepping up!!
    I should have called INS on them......

  • jussaying

    lmfao... i might just shudder and sigh in appreciation.

    Petra reminds me of Eva Green. IDK if you watched Sin City 2, but she was that one who was always butt ass nekkid and driving men to kill for her. She also was in that Penny Dreadful show (which was dreadful to watch lmfao) on Showtime. But they both real pretty with those crazy eyes that lets you know something aint right up there. Ngl tho... Rafael is fine as hell and he got money so I can't blame her for being deekmatized. (Can we petition for more shirtless Raf orrr???)

    UMM.. can we check Michael's track record tho. People always saying he good and sweet but he was shady af in Season 1. First, he encouraged her to get an abortion not bc she was struggling with the decision but out of his own selfish reasons cuz he ain't want that baby. THEN, he learns about Petra and gets into cohorts w her to sabotage Jane keeping that baby even tho he knows she wants it - again for his own selfish reasons. THEN, he repeatedly lies to her. THEN, he uses his position to enact out a personal vendetta against Raf just bc Raf caught his ass slipping and being sheisty. THEN, let's not forget he kept his shady illegal past from her for the entire 2 years and I swear, I wanted to explore that bc no way your brother can blackmail you for an entire 2 years if all you did was steal some cars... LASTLY, when he gets dumped, his immediate reaction is to go bone his partner multiple times.. Like when you compare that to Raf and all the shiitake Raf had to deal with, I don't see how Michael comes up smelling like roses.. SHRUGS.

    Well maybe he "abandoned" the cause because he realized the attention was turning to him instead of the actual movement?

  • SameoleJ

    "What does I excused it until I couldn't" mean? Is that supposed to make her look good. I am reading this as, I excused it until he ain't break me off with my half.........#SHAUNKINGLETMEDOWNANDLEFTMEOUTTHEPAYOFF

  • SameoleJ

    I think Talib is saying.....if you are going to tag me in this, show me some receipts or don't tie up my time line with accusations.

  • SameoleJ

    Crystal is....she is the lone voice of reason, bringing light to the masses. Nevermind that she got caught up in something she did not fully research and has "excused his behavior until I couldnt." - whatever that means.

    That's what happens in an organization with a savior complex. You believe only 1 person, a savior, can lead you so you can't take it when they are exposed as being human..right or wrong. They turn quickly and run to the next person to lead them. Organizations are better served when many voices unite in a unified message resulting in positive change for everyone.

    Doesn't King have a column with NYdailynews?

  • Li

    Unless you file a police report (did they?) what is the President supposed to do. Did the students tell the president who done it? Did they know?
    Will the President stepping down STOP the perps? What will the new President do -- oh yeh, the faculty and students want to choose the new President. Never heard of such silliness in my days.
    All you can do is suspend the perps - or file a police report.

  • Li

    If you as a student know this history before applying to the school, WHY WOULD YOU GO? Don't the black students know about Howard and Moorehouse? Stick with your own!

  • Li

    I love Jane the Virgin.

  • Li

    You can watch it free online.

  • Li

    Enlighten me. Did ALL these black students get a scholarship or some type of charity aid toward their education?
    I think there's a growing perception on majority-white campuses that BLACK children are paying less in tuition and getting free rides (scholarships) when they have to pay full tuition.
    Just a guess as to why this is happening towards blacks.
