Big White Lies
It seems that Rachel Dolezal’s trans-racial lie about being a black woman, while actually being a lilly white girl from Montana was just one example of white people lying about their race to bring some meaning to their otherwise pointless lives. Dolezal rode her trans-racial hoax all the way to the NAACP leadership position in Spokane, Washington.
Now comes someone I’ll be calling Dolezal 2.0; Shaun King. King has taken his abnormal aversion to his naturally occurring whiteness a few steps further however. You see King, who is one of the leaders of the #blacklivesmatter movement and a writer for the extreme left wing website Daily Kos, lied to get his hands on scholarship money from Oprah Winfrey and Morehouse College. For decades King has claimed to be black. Well biracial to be more accurate but the truth is he was born to a pair of very white parents. He is no more black than I am, period.
Like the sordid story of Rachel Dolezal before, Shaun King it appears also boosted his blackness credibility by lying about suffering hate crimes for his fake blackness at the hands of non-existent evil white men. I know it is a lot to keep up with but then that is often the case when there is nothing but a blizzard of lies to deal with.
King did step up and threaten a former classmate for telling the truth however and said he would sue him for slander.
Daily Caller reporter Chuck Ross put it this way:
King, 35, has threatened to sue a former high school classmate for slander after he posted and commented on his Facebook page about a Daily Caller article laying out evidence undermining King’s claim that as a high school student in Versailles, Ky. he was attacked by a dozen “redneck” students in a 1995 hate crime.
The DC obtained a record of that threat, which King issued late last month through Facebook chat. King, a social justice blogger at Daily Kos who became a prominent figure following the death of Michael Brown, has claimed in interviews and in his recent book that his beating was racially motivated. He also said it was one of the first hate crimes registered in the state of Kentucky.
But TheDC obtained a police report from the incident <http://dailycaller.com/2015/07/21/leading-ferguson-activists-hate-crime-claim-disputed-by-poli> and spoke to the detective who investigated. Though King has claimed he almost died from the attack, the report characterized King’s injuries as minor. He was driven to the hospital by his mother that day, and reportedly suffered an abrasion to his cheek and had some pain in his ribs and back.
Another longer version of the police report shows that the student who beat up King claimed he did so because King had threatened his ex-girlfriend the day before over an $8 CD she accidentally broke weeks before.
King has declined to respond to any of the accusations so far and instead is defending what he wrote ton Facebook, which read in part:
“Over 20 years ago, when I was 15 years old, I was beaten so badly I missed the next 20 months of school recovering from fractures to my face and ribs, and severe injuries to my spine. I had three brutal spinal surgeries during that time and it changed the entire course of my life. I received counseling for PTSD and have had multiple spinal surgeries and years of physical therapy since.”
It seems to me once you start spiraling down the rabbit hole of trans-racial confusion and dishonesty it’s hard to find what the truth really is. Truth can be a hard thing to see.
Let me give it a try. Shaun, you’re white. Shaun, you are not a victim but rather a run of the mill pathological liar and a narcissist with some other deeply seeded mental issues that need immediate attention. Shaun, I suggest you examine your irrational need to identify as a maligned person of a different race. It seems to me you need an awful lot of attention. Shaun, pay attention because this is my belief: you have serious Mommy issues. Sorry about your childhood, now do us all a favor and go away, far away.
