Samaria Rice ripped into Talcum X, aka Shaun King in an Instagram post for using the death of her son, Tamir Rice to fundraise and she did not get a cut. Shaun King is best known as the whitest Black man in history. Tamir Rice was shot and killed when he pulled an airsoft gun on a police officer and he shot him. The officer was not charged with any crimes.
Samaria Rice said:
“Why do you think it’s so important to tell folks we had a conversation? Well, we talked and everything that was said was very toxic and uncomfortable for me to hear that you raised additional money and then say you did not want to bother me. I don’t understand how you sleep at night. along with the united states, you robbed me for the death of my son.”
“You gave me a cop and donut conversation. All lies Shaun, please stop thinking we are on the same team. As a white man acting Black you are an imposter that can not be trusted. My son was 12 years old and, and DOJ needs to reopen his case period. Tamir Human rights were violated, why would you so ever make it about you? you are a selfish self-centered person and God will deal with you, White man.”
Rice had previously admonished BLM for doing the same thing:
“They are benefiting off the blood of our loved ones, and they won’t even talk to us.”
Samaria Rice ripped into King in an Instagram post where she accused him of wrongfully fundraising in the name of her deceased son.
Rice had previously called out other activists in the Black Lives Matter movement for raising funds off of the death of her son.
In 2015, a grand jury voted against indicting the rookie police officer who shot and killed Tamir Rice. The boy, who was holding an airsoft toy gun when he was killed, has since been cited by BLM activists as a case of racial injustice.
