It's hard to compare Shaun King to DeRay since King doesn't do McDonald's commercials on his Twitter.

Oh well, it happened anyway! I liken him in a way to Deray McKesson, but I think Deray is worse in that he definitely is more of an attention hog and winds up detracting from the groups he is trying to benefit (BLM in particular). I dont care for Twitter commentators/political personalities either, but King definitely got my respect for singling out those Charlottesville attackers.

No he's a piece of shit and deserve's no respect at all! He would report you to I.C.E just for speaking Spanish there's no defense for a person like that.

Ok you go out and do something then


Nah. It’s far easier to sit back and write dissertations about Israel and criticize people on a message board.

Listen, it’s nice he’s raised money for families who have been victimized by police brutality, and if I knew him, I wouldn’t discourage him from continuing his work. But his writing is mediocre and his overall impact on these issues is pretty fruitless. I mean, he’s most popular for broadcasting polemics against racists on fucking twitter, right? Why is that impressive? How does it actually challenge white supremacy? I never claimed anything I did challenged it either, but I’m also not stupid enough to be convinced that flaming hicks on twitter actually accomplishes anything.

Just because you do good things, doesn’t mean you’re actually changing shit. Like at all. It’s noble and commendable, but please tell what significant impact Shaun King has had in the world and tell me why I should care about him more than Michael Moore.



You literally describe yourself as a communist, a system that has never truly worked for more than 20 years without capitalism or genocide tainting it.

I call him a waste because he basically tried to sabotage the NY DSA very early on by trying to cause strife between the DSA and BLM movement in NYC but the leaders of both groups saw through his petty bullshit and work essentially hand in hand today.

He's got a very poweful voice but it will backfire on him eventually I fell.


Do you have a link to more info about the DSA/BLM thing? I didn't know about that and want to know more.

I'm from outside of NY and that's been pretty obvious to me that money can't buy class.
Trump has always come off as a tawdry, cheap imitation of wealth and class, AKA what poor people think being rich is like.
He's white trash through and through. The fact that he's really into "gold" plating everything, the WWF thing, his beauty contests, and him having the food taste of your average trailer trash are giveaways.

Remember when that Texas fertilizer plant blew up and killed the town's volunteer firefighters? Pruitt is rescinding those dang regulations because of two complaints from industry groups.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/mor ... 6552f39232

“Accident prevention is a top priority at EPA, and this proposed rule will ensure proper emergency planning and continue the trend of fewer significant accidents involving chemicals,” Pruitt said in a statement. “The rule proposes to reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens, address the concerns of stakeholders and emergency responders on the ground, and save Americans roughly $88 million a year.”

The bulk of the claimed savings would come from getting rid of a rule requiring owners of a chemical plant to evaluate options for safer technology and procedures that would mitigate hazards, according to an EPA report.
