Black Lives Matter activist and blogger Shaun King finally spoke out about the controversy surrounding his race via a post on DailyKos.

“The reports about my race, about my past, and about the pain I’ve endured are all lies,” wrote King.

“I refuse to speak in detail about the nature of my mother’s past, or her sexual partners, and I am gravely embarrassed to even be saying this now, but I have been told for most of my life that the white man on my birth certificate is not my biological father and that my actual biological father is a light-skinned black man,” he said.

Conservative attack website Breibert thought they unearthed the next Rachel Dolezal earlier this week when they posted a hit piece about King, more than likely to discredit his activism work.

King blasted Breibart, The Blaze, talk show host Glenn Beck and other conservatives, saying they don’t care what color he is, they only want him to “shut up.”

He also compared his situation to President Obama’s “birther” controversy.

“In essence, what is happening to me now, is like conservatives demanding Obama’s long form birth certificate,” he tweeted.
