BLM activist Shaun King is being called out for using money donated to his PAC in order to purchase a $40,000 prize show dog.

News of Rai and Shaun King's new home opens up a larger conversation about progressive political spaces and the lack of equity in earning power for all of those who "do the work."

Shaun King deleted his Twitter account over the weekend and made his Instagram private—noting that he’s taking a social media break “for the rest of July.” 


Activist Leslie Mac is taking aim at Shaun King by accusing the journalist of fraud — again. Mac, co-founder the Ferguson Response Network and co-creator the Safety Pin Box subscription service, took to Twitter to warn people not to contribute to King’s coronavirus-related fundraiser — the C19 Help Squad. “I knew he couldn’t resist jumping in to capitalize on […]


Shaun King has come under fire for making misleading claims about MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow’s Super Tuesday reporting. King, a staunch supporter of Sen.

I have a few things that I wanna cover this morning so I’ll jump right in.  Yesterday, Trump’s attorneys announced that they are not going to participate in this week’s new impeachment hearings. Now, on some level, that’s not surprising, because they’ve refused to participate in almost all of the aspects of […]

First, I have to give my thoughts on Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire New Yorker who just jumped into the presidential race claiming that he is going to challenge the billionaire New Yorker who is President of […]

Good Morning Everybody. I’m not sure if you watched any of the impeachment hearings yesterday, but Donald Trump is absolutely going to be impeached.
