Remember Rachel Dolezal? Well, is Shaun King the male-version?
Shaun King is a “Black Lives Matter” activist who has been accused of misrepresenting his race and passing for black when he’s actually white.
“Black Lives Matter” is a nationwide movement that protests the killing of unarmed black men by police.
The movement is growing in the public where King has been at the center of it.
King appears often on television talk shows and at protest sites.
During interviews, King adds that he’s biracial, with a white mother and a black father.
During the week, websites including Breibart.com and the Daily Beast, reveals that King’s father is allegedly white.
Breibart published what it says is King’s Kentucky birth certificate, listing Jeffery Wayne King as the father, but the document doesn’t list his race. The Daily Beast said public records it reviewed show that King’s father is Caucasian, according to CNN.
Don Lemon, host of CNN Tonight, said a “family member” told CNN both of King’s parents are white.
King tweeted stating, “First off, the key facts about my biological relatives are all wrong. They tried, but my family, like many of yours, is one big mess.”
