SATCHUEL COLE, LEADER IN THE FIGHT FOR RACIAL EQUALITY IN INDIANAPOLIS, LIED ABOUT OWN RACE. A high-profile Indiana activist known for racial and social justice advocacy has apologized for lying about being Black, according to a published report.
Satchuel Cole, who uses they and them pronouns, has worked with Indiana chapters of Black Lives Matter and Showing Up for Racial Justice and apologized in a social media post for taking “space as a Black person while knowing I am white,” the Indianapolis Star reported.
“Friends, I need to take accountability for my actions and the harm that I have done. My deception and lies have hurt those I care most about. I have taken up space as a Black person while knowing I am white. I have used Blackness when it was not mine to use. I have asked for support and energy as a Black person. I have caused harm to the city, friends and the work that I held so dear,” Cole, who uses pronouns they and them, posted on a Facebook page under the name Satch Paige.
