As dishonest as fake-black woman Rachel Dolezal proved to be, no one reached for his wallet to get at the truth, but that’s just what a black conservative group is offering to do to learn whether race activist Shaun King is what he claims to be.
BlackConservativesFund.com issued a statement Thursday saying it will donate $25,000 to the Black Lives Matter movement if King can prove he is biracial — that his father is black.
“Black lives do in fact matter, which is why a leading conservative African-American organization, reported., is offering $25,000 to Black Lives Matter causes if an activist [King] under controversy can authenticate his claim, that he is in fact, black.” the group said in a statement, the Daily Caller
The back and forth continues over King’s race, with the activist insisting he did not lie about his father being black. But CNN’s Don Lemon reported Wednesday evening that a family member told the network that both of King’s parents were white.
King rose to prominence in the Black Lives Matter movement by helping propel the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie onto the national stage after the death of Michael Brown, and Ali Akbar, senior adviser to the Black Conservative Fund, said the activist “used his platform to bully countless African-Americans whom he disagreed with politically.”
“Shaun King has bullied other blacks — conservatives blacks — who don’t share 100 percent of his political views,” Akbar said in the statement. “I get it. That’s the ugly side of politics, but to steal the identity of a people who are crying out for reform—that’s just fraud.”
Akbar referenced Dolezal, saying that both she and King, who he called a distraction, share “mythical black fathers.”
“I’m biracial and I’m really concerned with left-wing activists like Rachel Dolezal and Shaun King calling people like me ‘Uncle Tom’ while they’re not even black!” Akbar said.
According to the group, King has 24 hours to “produce his alleged African-American father or cooperate with a DNA test,” or he forfeits the $25,000.
Odds are, that’s one check that will not have to be written.
