Normally I do not speak about Shaun King, or even acknowledge his existence. However, sometimes the liberal political activist says something so absurd that I have to throw the dog a bone.
King, a writer for The Intercept, responded to a tweet from President Trump that said, “Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!”
He claims that “ungrateful” is the new “n-word.”

So is he implying that black people are ungrateful? Because that’s not what Trump was saying at all! LaVar Ball blasted the president after he negotiated Ball’s son’s release from prison in China. He should be kissing Trump’s feet!
King tweeted, “Ungrateful is the new nigger.”

Twitter users immediately responded and called him out for his ignorance:
If any other white person would’ve said “nigger” y’all would’ve got them fired, but cuz Shaun King got a fade & married a black woman y’all let him slide lol

Trump didn't even mention race… But why is Shaun King, a white guy who pretends to be black, allowed to write the n word on Facebook? pic.twitter.com/sRWOWqJ3VB
