Black Lives Matter Activist Shaun King Slams White Man Allegations
Black Lives Matters activist Shaun King went off on a lengthy Twitter rant on Wednesday night after being accused of lying about his race.
It was recently reported that King, who claims his mother is White and father is Black, is actually a White man.
News website, Briebart, published a lengthly article in efforts to prove King’s real ethnicity, including a mugshot of King’s father who appears to be Caucasian. The report also stirred up controversy because King received a scholarship to HBCU, Morehouse College, from Oprah Winfrey.
And while the nation compared the story to Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP chapter president from Spokane, Washington who identifies as Black, Shaun is doing all he can to slam the allegations.
The activist posted over two dozen reasons why Breibart’s report is completely false.
King also confirmed that he was indeed involved in a hate crime back in 1995. He further provided proof by posting a former classmates recount of the day the attack happened.

Morehouse also responded, tweeting:
