Shaun King 2018: Can’t vote for Joe Biden or Kamala Harris because they “helped build and advance mass incarceration”
That was then: “I’ll be frank and tell you two Democrats I’m 99% sure I won’t be supporting… Joe Biden & Kamala Harris.” This is now: I’m thrilled to support Biden-Harris.
Shaun King is an activist and co-founder of the Real Justice PAC, he’s also super involved with the Black Lives Matters movement (are we still technically calling it a movement?).
Like most progressives, King had very different thoughts on a Biden/Harris ticket before there was a Biden/Harris ticket.
In 2018, King singled out Biden and Harris as being the two individuals he wouldn’t support because of their “dismal history on criminal justice reform over the course of their entire careers.”
But strong words mean nothing these days, because yesterday, King was stoked a black woman was chosen as a VP nominee.
But it’s all cool now, because that was just the primaries, y’all.
This summation from the AJC of controversies in which King has been enmeshed is hilarious:
