A few weeks ago, the nation was stunned when NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal was outed as a white woman. Now, it’s happening all over again…
This week, Black Lives Matter organizer Shaun King was exposed as a white man who has been posing as black for over a decade. According to Joe For America, King has claimed in interviews that his father is black and his mother is a white woman of Irish descent. His birth certificate, however, reveals that both of his parents are in fact white.
Years ago, King applied for and received a scholarship from Oprah Winfrey for Morehouse College. The scholarship in question is exclusively given to black men, but King claims he never lied to obtain it. In one of his writings, King calls himself a “brother,” and brags about making Oprah pay for him to go to college.
“Oprah Winfrey paid my way through Morehouse,” he boasted. “The leadership scholarship that I received from her is why I have a college degree today. Five hundred other brothers have the esame story.”
King has also claimed to be the victim of various hate crimes for being black. Police reports, however, have always described him as a white man.
This is particularly humiliating for Oprah, who prides herself as a smart, strong race-baiter. You might want to be more careful who you give scholarships to, Oprah!
