Besides being a fake black man, race hustler Shaun King is also being called a thief and fraudster on Twitter. One who seems to have no shame whatsoever.

Case in point: On July 4th, he took content from a filmmaker’s Twitter feed and then reposted that content to his own followers as if he’d produced it.

Posted by filmmaker Arlen Parsa last September, the original content may be seen below:

Parsa’s clearly a far-leftist who resents America’s Founding Fathers for having owned slaves like practically every other white American back in the late 1700s.

Regardless, King reposted the image without giving credit and then wrote a condescending caption imploring his followers to listen to his alleged wisdom.

I’m a historian by training. My undergraduate and graduate degrees are in history. Let me teach you something. Every man with a red dot on their face who signed the Declaration of Independence OWNED and enslaved Africans. Over 75% of them. The rest permitted it,” he wrote.

See a screenshot of the since-deleted tweet below:

Parsa eventually caught word of it and decided to pay his Twitter page a visit.

“Hi, thanks for reposting the thing I spent quite a lot of time researching and making last fall!” he wrote in a surprisingly congenial reply.

“I don’t mind that you reposted it— everyone is free to share it. I would love a shout out or some kind of credit though :)”


King deleted the tweet a couple of hours later and then issued a reply claiming “junior staff” had written it.


The apology did virtually nothing to stop criticism from pouring in at lightening-fast speed as critics from all across the political spectrum pounced.


The guy has long been suspected of being a fraudster and grifter.

Like a headline of a piece published at The Daily Beast just two months ago reads, “Shaun King Keeps Raising Money, and Questions About Where It Goes.”

“Shaun King and progressive journalist Benjamin Dixon launched an ambitious multimedia reboot of Frederick Douglass’ abolitionist newspaper, The North Star, last February. … But 14 months after launching, almost none of what King promised to build has appeared and the site has struggled with issues that alienated many subscribers,” the outlet reported.

Meanwhile, all the money he’d collected from fundraisers for the newspaper simply disappeared.

It didn’t help that he’d faced “long-standing accusations — primarily lodged by black women and queer folks, nearly all of whom are his former co-organizers, colleagues, employees, and supporters — that [he’s] has inflated, mismanaged, or failed to account for funds he’s raised for various social-justice causes.”

And so based on his relatively recent past, it’s easy to understand why so many critics have dismissed his apology as being, well, as fake as his race …
