BLM Activist Promised to NEVER Vote for Joe Biden or Kamala Harris, Here's What He's Saying Now

Shaun King is a prominent leader in the Black Lives Matter movement. In some ways, he's the face of the organization.

Oddly enough, Shaun is white. How is a white guy leading the Black Lives Matter movement when they are all about making white people a footstool?

He even misled Oprah Winfrey by pretending that he was biracial so that he could qualify for an "Oprah scholarship" to attend Morehouse College which is a historically black college.

Well, flashback to 2018 when there were still a couple of dozen Democratic candidates in the pool and what Shaun said about two of them, specifically Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

"I'll be frank and tell you two Democrats that I'm 99% sure I won't be supporting - primarily because of their dismal history on criminal justice reform over the course of their entire careers.

Joe Biden & Kamala Harris.

They both helped build & advance mass incarceration."


But here's what he said after the announcement that Kamala Harris would be Joe Biden's running mate:

"That's it for me. I am incredibly proud to see a brilliant Black woman, and HBCU grad, chosen as a Vice Presidential nominee. I've done political work my whole life. It's rarely things dreams are made of. Kamala Harris is the most progressive VP nominee in American history."

THEN he tried to go on and justify it after being called out on it after a user came to his defense saying, "well, on the bright side, the best that the circular firing squad can do is post some screen grabs showing that @shaunking changed his mind about her."

"Pretty much. I can only speak for myself, but when I harshly critique leaders, it’s with the hope that they will grow and evolve. Kamala has done so, in very specific ways, on issues of justice. I’ll remain a critic. But I’m nothing but glad to see the growth. Is what it is."

Here's the problem, she didn't grow and evolve want to know how I know this? Because she hasn't done anything since then, PLUS he's talking about how she hasn't done anything her entire career. Now all of a sudden her doing nothing for a year and a half except run for president and fail means that she's magically reversed everything that she did to build and advance mass incarceration? I don't think so.
