Samira Rice, mother of Tamir Rice, is not a fan of transracial activist Shaun King. 12-year-old Tamir was fatally shot by a cop in Cleveland, Ohio in 2014.
Samira spoke out after King posted a conversation he had with her on his blog, “The North Star with Shaun King.”
In the post, he explained the fundraising he did for Samaria in the wake of her son’s death. However, Samaria questioned King’s agenda before adding that she never gave him permission to raise money for her family.
“Why do you think it’s so important to tell folks we had a conversation?” she asked in her Instagram post. She questioned where the money went and reiterated that she never gave him permission to raise money for her.
“Well we talked and everything that was said was very toxic and uncomfortable for me to hear that you raised additional money and then say you did not want to bother me. Personally, I don’t understand how you sleep at night. I never gave you permission to raise nothing. Along with the United States, you robbed me for the death of my son.”
“You gave me a cop and donut conversation [sic]. All lies Shaun, please stop thinking we on the same page,” Samaria said. “As a white man acting black, you are [an] imposter that can not be trusted. My son was 12 years old, and DOJ needs to reopen his case period. Tamir Human rights was violated, why would you so ever make it about you? You are a selfish self centered person and God will deal with you White man.”
