Did Black Lives Matter Organizer Shaun King Mislead Oprah by Pretending to Be Biracial?

By Rick Pearcey • August 19, 2015, 10:03 AM

Milo Yiannopoulos reports at Breitbart.com:

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. . . .

[I]n 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.

Pate "told Breitbart last night that King has never denied her accusations," Yiannopoulos reports.

"Shaun King has not denied the story to me, or anyone else, as far as I know," Pate is quoted as telling Breitbart.com. "Whenever it is mentioned on Twitter, he simply blocks whoever is asking and reports them for 'harassment.' He did reply to one person but only to say, 'Haters gonna hate.' I myself have been suspended from Twitter just for posing the question," Pate says, according to Breitbart.com.

"King did not return mutiple requests for comment via email and social media. He has since blocked us, too," Breitbart.com reports.
