Tamir Rice’s mom slammed Shaun King in a scathing social media post, calling him a self-centered person who can’t be trusted – and “a white man acting black.”
Samaria Rice was apparently set off by King publishing details of a conversation they had, after she previously blasted King and others, accusing them of benefitting from the death of her 12-year-old son, who was shot by Cleveland police while playing with a toy gun.
“Why do you think its so important to tell folks we had a conversation,” Rice wrote in an Instagram post addressed to King.
“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. Personally I don’t understand how you sleep at night,” she wrote.
“I never gave you permission to raise nothing,” Rice went on. “Along with the united states, you robbed me for the death of my son.”
King had posted an episode of his podcast under the title “I spoke to Samaria Rice this past week,” but the episode appears to have been removed from his website.
“It was a much-needed conversation,” he wrote on the page for the episode. “I learned a lot. Listened a lot. Shared my heart. And pledged we would continue to fight to get justice and accountability for Tamir.”
