    (1979- )
    Born in Franklin County, Kentucky
    Birth name was Jeffrey Shaun King
    Spokesperson for The Black Lives Matter Movement
    Named an Oprah Winfrey Scholar by Morehouse College
    Founded the charity auction site (2010)
    Contributing political blogger for The Daily Kos (2014-15)
    Senior justice writer for the New York Daily News, providing commentary on social justice, police brutality and race relations (2015 - )
    Came under fire for allegedly lying about his biracial identity, after writers at Breitbart News Network pointed out that both of his parents were white (Aug. 2015)
    At the center of resurfaced 1996 sexual harassment allegations against Peyton Manning by a female trainer at the University of Tennessee, after publishing analyses of court-related documents (Feb. 2016)
    He frequently injects himself into his news pieces.
    His name (very appropriately) rhymes with that of an opportunistic huckster prone to making fringe, racially-charged statements.
    He talks like Dan Castellaneta doing a really bad Eddie Murphy impression.
    He has been accused of fabricating an anti-black hate crime story to the police in Kentucky, in 1995.
    He was accused of misappropriating 'Justice Together' funds raised for the family of teen shooting victim Tamir Rice (as well as several other BLM-affiliated causes).
    He has claimed that the father listed on his birth certificate was not his biological father.
    He has been called 'the male Rachel Dolezal' (who had been criticized months earlier for also claiming to be black).
    Unlike Dolezal, though, he is at the helm of an organization known for radical protest methods to deliberately intimidate white people, such as blocking interstate traffic (although several BLM members have since disavowed him).
    He was caught in a plagiarism scandal when The Daily Caller called him out for copying one of their blog posts and passing it off as his own work.
    He wrote a 2014 story claiming to have witnessed rapper C-Bo come to a Kentucky soul food restaurant and engaging in a shootout, when he was fourteen (also claiming to have barely escaped with his life in the process).
    He staked his life on the story's truth despite no proof existing to uphold it. Even C-Bo, himself, shot down the story by tweeting 'King is a lie. No shootout in a Kentucky restaurant. I don’t even know this dude.'
    He engaged in a heated, racially-charged Twitter feud with Fox Sports’ Jason Whitlock over his reopening the Peyton Manning 1996 scandal, which eventually devolved into King referring to Whitlock as 'a coon' and 'an Uncle Tom' (Feb. 17, 2016).
    He agreed to be interviewed when Whitlock guest-hosted the sports radio show, 'The Herd,' to hash out their differences on the Manning story. He proceeded to conduct himself unprofessionally, resorting to personal attacks from the get-go and claiming that Whitlock had tried to mentor or 'recruit' him on one occasion.
    Mediaite summed up the interaction by calling it 'thirty minutes of back-and-forth accusations of sexism, racism, workplace harassment, bullying, journalistic fabrication, race treachery, fraud, theft, white supremacy, and fake blackness.'
    He wrote a self-help book.
    He shares a name with a popular Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting Quarterback.
    He has taken in several foster children.
    He raised $1.5 million to send tents to Haiti in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake.
    He utilized social media to defend the St. Louis Rams 'hands up don't shoot' players when calls surfaced for an NFL suspension (Nov. 30, 2014).
    He has been critical of the racial tone of attacks directed at Cam Newton.
    Some BLM-supporters asserted that questions regarding his race were distractions from actual race-related violence issues.
    Steven Crowder did a lame Maury Povich Show parody of King 'finding out his real white father' via the 'yellow envelope.'
    The safety of Peyton Manning's good name/reputation? Check! (so long as King's leading the charge anyway...)
    He lambasted Chris Rock's opening Academy Awards monologue as being 'distasteful, uncomfortable, and just plain wrong' (2016).
