A Black Lives Matter organizer who claimed to be the victim of hate crimes has been outted as a white man.
Shaun King, a high-profile agitator who campaigns against police brutality, told Oprah Winfrey his father was black.
A blogger, Vicki Pate, uncovered King's birth certificate which identifies his father as a white man.
Comparisons are being drawn between King and former NAACP head Rachel Dolezal, who claimed to be a black woman despite her obvious lack of melanin.
Critics accuse posers like King and Dolezal of using their white privilege to subjugate black culture for their own selfish reasons.
This sort of racial treachery and deceit would not be possible if black people would stop referring to biracial and mixed-race people as black.
An investigative blogger has accused Shaun King, a key figure in the Black Lives Matter movement, of misleading media icon Oprah Winfrey by pretending to be biracial in order to qualify for an “Oprah scholarship” to historically black Morehouse College. The blogger says King is white and has been lying about his ethnicity for years.
King is a high-profile campaigner against “police brutality” and “justice correspondent” for the liberal Daily Kos website who told Rebel magazine in 2012 that he was biracial, with the magazine reporting that he is the “son of a Caucasian mother and an African-American father.” He has also described himself as “mixed with a black family” on Twitter.
