Does #blackprivilegematter at #blacklivesmatter?

Move over, Rachel Dolezal! We may have another prominent example of a white person adopting the identity of black in order to gain opportunities. This embrace of black privilege is all the more delicious because it involves the current media darling of the racialists.  An increasing amount of evidence is accumulating that a key organizer at Soros-funded #blacklivesmatter is a white man posing as black. That is the accusation of blogger Vicki Pate, as amplified by the Breitbart megaphone. Milo Yannopoulos summarizes:

An investigative blogger has accused Shaun King, a key figure in the Black Lives Matter movement, of misleading media icon Oprah Winfrey by pretending to be biracial in order to qualify for an “Oprah scholarship” to historically black Morehouse College. The blogger says King is white and has been lying about his ethnicity for years.

King is a high-profile campaigner against “police brutality” and “justice correspondent” for the liberal Daily Kos website who told Rebel magazine in 2012 that he was biracial, with the magazine reporting that he is the “son of a Caucasian mother and an African-American father.” He has also described himself as “mixed with a black family” on Twitter.

King has been lionised by the press, praised as hero of civil rights and social activism. He has written extensively about a childhood in which he was terrorised by “decades old racial tensions.” He claims to have been “the focus of constant abuse of the resident rednecks of my school.”

Yet, in recent weeks, rumours have been circulating about his ethnicity. A 1995 police incident report lists Shaun King’s ethnicity as white. And blogger Vicki Pate, who has been assembling forensic accounts of Shaun King’s background and family tree on her blog, “Re-NewsIt!,” has published her findings.

Breitbart says it has independently obtained the document:

The Left has created a huge problem for itself by embracing the concept that gender identity is optional, now officially embraced by the Obama administration. Sex is far more basic a matter of biology than race. So, if King (or your kid trying to get into Harvard) wants to call himself black, who can object?

Stay tuned, this could get fun. Do white lives pretending to be black lives matter?
