Another Shaun King Insight: Black Men Have Schlongs

Shaun King, the New York Daily News “social justice” writer and fabulist, seems to fixate on penises more than your average gay man in a bath house. King has already accused white men of cherishing guns to compensate for their small penises.

Now, King has upped the ante with an even more hardcore argument.

In his recent Daily News column denouncing this racist country that twice elected a black president and gives literary awards to pompous purveyors of racial agitprop, such as affirmative action hire Ta-Nehesi Coates, King suddenly got all cocksure with his arguments.

“The very founding fathers of the United States were not simply faraway spectators, but willing, enthusiastic participants in the horror of owning, buying, selling, trading, breeding and working hundreds of Africans in America from birth until death.”

Apparently thinking he came up with some new groundbreaking argument that the Founding Fathers supported slavery, King hastens to say that, “This is essential to understand because it was these same men who left out the word ‘white’ when they wrote ‘all men are created equal.’ While the founders and generations of lawmakers were fully aware that black men had penises — they were male of course — nothing about being a black man in colonial America made you a truly equal human being under the law.”

How did this even get published? It is gratuitous and ignorant.

Speaking from personal experience, Daily News opinion pieces are normally carefully edited. The editor for these articles made the writer substantiate anything that was not widely known. Outlandish and rude lines were excised quicker than foreskin at a bris.

But King, an affirmative action hire, seems to be held to far less exacting standards.

Regardless, King should have included a trigger warning when he started talking about black phalluses.

Media Matters founder David Brock just accused Donald Trump of racism for saying Barack Obama “schlonged” Hillary Clinton in 2008. Apparently, anybody white who mentions penises and black males in the same sentences is sending out a racist dog whistle.

But black writers who get all cocky are offering trenchant social insights? Yup.

As King’s hearty band of race-baiting cop haters might say, black johnsons matter!
