Another fake black woman has been outed, this time it is Satchuel Cole, the head of the Indianapolis social justice group, Indy10 Black Lives Matter, who now admits she has lied about being black for ten years.
Cole has now admitted that she is really a white woman and has pretended to be black at least since she legally changed her name from Jennifer Lynn Benton to Satchuel Paigelyn Cole in 2010.
Cole’s admission came on the heels of an expose by BlackIndyLIVE.com which found that the woman did not have a black father as she told the several social justice groups she has worked with, the Indianapolis Star reported.
Per the paper:
Cole was a member of the Indy10 Black Lives Matter group and in 2017 became the spokesperson for the family of Aaron Bailey, who was shot and killed by IMPD following a traffic stop in June 2017.
Cole had also been involved with DONT SLEEP, a group that advocates for equity and justice in Indianapolis. Cole had acted as vice president and as of Friday was not listed as a team member on the website.
The fraud wormed her way into many of the social justice groups in Indianapolis including LGBTQ group, Indy Pride, which made her the Pride Parade Grand Marshal on 2020.
Central Indiana Community Foundation, which had donated money to some of the groups Cole headed and/or worked with, including the No Questions Asked Food Pantry that Cole founded, said the revelations are disappointing.
“We were funding the work of No Questions Asked Food Pantry and this particular fund was not only vetted through CICF staff but it was also vetted through residents who said the organization added value to the community,” said Pamela Ross, vice president of opportunity, equity and inclusion at CICF.
CICF had donated $35,000 to Cole’s food pantry.
Cole joins a growing number of white people who claimed to be black and became leaders of black civil rights groups based on the lie. The list includes former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal, writer Shaun King, and George Washington University Professor Jessica Krug, among others.
