Just as he reportedly left the white race, former Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King announced he is leaving the Democratic Party.
King, who was exposed as a white man after claiming to be biracial, writes for the New York Daily News — he was hired AFTER questions about his race surfaced — and the activist/columnist posted a scathing editorial Friday detailing why he’s leaving the party his mother introduced him to.
