You mean the guy who has built his entire persona around being a liar may not be on the straight and narrow? Shocking! That anyone has ever given this obviously mentally ill person money is beyond reason.

The hell it isn't. Black Twitter has been screaming to the rafters about this clown's assholery for years. Talcum X isn't even the funniest of the nicknames they gave him:

Talcum X
Martin Luther Cream
Thurgood Partial
Hueless P. Newton
W. E. B. DuBlanc
Snow J. Simpson
Mayo Angelou

They're fed up with his bullshiat, and it's no wonder. He grifts and scams and cheats, all in the name of racial/social justice, but then he doesn't do shiat with the money he gets. Even Tamir Rice's mother told him to keep her son's name out of his mouth.

You submitted this, didn't you? You sound really invested in hoping he's guilty despite the article only trying hard to come up with evidence, but failing.
You also have a childish hard on for calling him names.

Most of the time you can't, due to paywals.
I did, however, actually read this one.
It's lengthy and detailed - but it's basically gossip.
Anyway - I'm not here to defend this clown - I've never heard of him before this afternoon, and he sounds like an asshole - at least based on what a whole bunch of people who don't like him have to say about him.
But I am not going grab a rope based on an article like that in a publication like the Beast.
And maybe he's a scammer - but not on Fark's say-so. Sorry if you don't like my assessment of the commentary here on Fark, but I've been here awhile, and observed what I've observed.
I certainly don't intend anything I say as a insult to you. Try to keep your comments to me non personal, if you can.

I've never submitted anything to Fark. I'm not witty enough, and if I ever see an article that crazy/funny/silly, someone else has already submitted it.

I also don't have a "childish hard-on" for calling him names. I just think those nicknames other people far funnier than came up with were good.

So take a seat.

Well, no. Their issue is he's a white guy pretending to be Black for the purpose of using the Black community to make money he doesn't then invest in causes that will benefit the Black community. That's how I've understood the crux of their problem with him. Which makes sense. If I were Black, and someone who wasn't Black was pretending to be so just to make a buck off our community's pain, I'd be pissed too.

I don't know anything more than what's in TFA about this guy, but IF the same handful of associates are running a stable of entities funnelling money amongst themselves in opaque ways with iffy disclosure--especially if they have little to show for it other than profit to those individuals (and apparently some unnamed politicians)--then that seems like adequate reason to flag ethical concerns for a readership which might be inclined to donate to those entities. There are whole websites dedicated to identifying better and worse practices in nonprofits; being subpar doesn't necessarily imply any *wrongdoing*, it's just a matter of donors wanting to know their donations are being put to good use.

White people that are afraid of being accused of saying "he isn't black enough" when they say he (literally) isn't black.

You see it in this thread.

If by "isn't dark enough" you mean he's literally a white man with two white parents who is pretending to be black, then sure, let's go with that.

If you're a serious person, which clearly you're not, you might understand why the black community is up in arms about this fraudster raising money by claiming to be black, for black people, only to use it on himself.
