Shaun King Faces Serious Accusations

Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King has been accused of lying and dubious business practices by left-wing activist Deray. 

As Breitbart reports:

Activist and journalist Shaun King has received harsh criticism from Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson, who called out his fellow activist for a “lapse in integrity” concerning fundraising tactics and leadership style. Mckesson also called out King for spreading fake news and “misstating facts.”

In a lengthy blog post on Medium, Mckesson cited a “lack of transparency” on King’s funding, adding that “those who attempt to lead but consistently demonstrate that they cannot effectively lead should stop. We have reached that point with Shaun.”

Mckesson lays into King by recounting his experience as a board member of Justice Together, which King created in 2014, focused on ending police violence.

“Shortly after the launch phase, I began to get emails from volunteers/members, who expressed a range of concerns about Shaun’s leadership,” McKesson writes. They included claims that dissenters were silenced within the organization’s slack groups or removed wholesale when they disagreed or challenged him, as well as slow or no communication regarding plans.

King’s name began trending on Twitter after Mckesson’s attack.
