It’s Independence Day, and Shaun “Talcum X” King has something to teach you, so sit down and take in his knowledge. It’s so important, “Shaun King” is actually a trending topic on Twitter at the moment. We’re using a screenshot because we can’t find the original tweet for some reason:
So, teach, didn’t they tell you about citing your sources in grad school?
Hi, thanks for reposting the thing I spent quite a lot of time researching and making last fall!

Shaun King has a BA and MA in History and somehow managed to complete both without learning how to cite his sources. pic.twitter.com/0Ob2TTqhET

I can't tell you how glad I am to see the backlash on Shaun King lately. I actually felt a little guilty during the 2016 campaign when I started disliking him. I thought I must have it wrong somehow, that I thought he was a sham. Turns out my gut was more right than I thought. ?

I had forgotten I even still followed him on FB until I saw this today, and just dropped him. He is just so problematic, and brings so little to the table as a journalist.

"Let me teach you something"????

“let me teach you something” should be the hint that we should definitely not be taught by this person.

Shaun King is proof that cancel culture does not exist. That grifter would have been gone ages ago if that were a real thing.

………….geez, it would be 10000% less blatant if he didn't feel the need to open with his historian training. He could have kept it plausibly deniable but he'd rather take the credit.

This is so disappointing and revealing. I really used to defend him!! Never again. Never again.
