Episode 51: Race Hustlers Part V – Shaun King's Thin Mustache and Thinner Defense

Tuesday, May 24th 2022 | 00:47:28

In this Race Hustler series fifth episode we talk about everything that went wrong with Shaun King’s Justice Together donation management, delving on the former members’ open letters that revealed he tried to centralize donor support and accused every person who didn’t agree with him to be a white supremacist or a troll. Did he take accountability? How did he react? The answer is just absurd.
