This one is kind of messy. There is a pretty popular activist named Shaun King who is prominent in the Black Lives Matter movement, among other things. He has claimed and continues to claim that he is biracial:
Activist and blogger Shaun King stated on Thursday that the man listed on his birth certificate, a white man, is not his biological father. King wrote in the Daily Kos that his mother, a white woman, conceived him with a black man.
However, many conservative news sources are claiming he lied about that, and is really just a white guy pretending to be biracial:
CNN’s Don Lemon told viewers that he had spoken to a family member who told him King is caucasian. Breitbart can today add to that confirmation a family member, possibly the same person Lemon spoke to, as well as two childhood acquaintances of King’s who all say he was never considered anything other than white.
Other sites just claim he “might” be White:
They all seem to be taking from the same few sources though, and not necessarily unbiased ones.
What is the truth here?
