"I raised funds for white folk for years and nobody said a single thing about it. It wasn’t until I started raising funds for victims of police brutality that I began being attacked for it."
A lot of people became aware of Shaun when the media starting claiming he was not black and lying about his race.... so we have to ask, does it really matter what color a person is who is standing up for a certain race? What if that race was their own child or spouse that they were standing up for?
Shaun did respond to these allegations saying,
"I refuse to speak in detail about the nature of my mother's past, or her sexual partners, and I am gravely embarrassed to even be saying this now, but I have been told for most of my life that the white man on my birth certificate is not my biological father and that my actual biological father is a light-skinned black man."
The allegations did not end there.
On Christmas Day Shaun King was then asked by CNN to provide a breakdown of his money accounts within the movement.
Shaun makes it a point to also point out that George Zimmerman and Darren Wilson raised over $1,000,000 online with minimal effort and little scrutiny.
So why Shaun? Is this all a conspiracy to end the #BlackLivesMatter movement? Or is Shaun really a thief stealing the public's money?
"I have not misappropriated, misspent, or mishandled a single penny from the Black Lives Matter movement. Period. This is a complete fabrication that was first started by white supremacists and ultra conservatives soon after Mike Brown was murdered. It has since been picked up by other outlets who will do anything for clicks and eyeballs and refuse to actually investigate the truth."
"$732,181.83. Every single penny I've helped raise for #BlackLivesMatter broken down & accounted for. Receipts."
How do you feel about this whole situation?
