Rachel Dolezal Is a Black Woman

 

rachel dolezalRachel Dolezal is a black woman who happened to be born into a white body.

A prominent civil rights activist in the United States is facing investigation after her parents accused her of falsely passing herself off as black.
Rachel Dolezal, 37, has been the head of the local branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People, or NAACP, in Spokane, Washington, since January. But her parents have now told US media that Ms Dolezal is in fact white – and has spent several years deliberately misleading the public and her colleagues about her race.

“She’s our birth daughter and we’re both of European descent,” her father, Larry Dolezal, told Buzzfeed. “We’re puzzled and it’s very sad.”

Sure, her parents say Rachel Dolezal’s actually of “Czech, Swedish, and German” descent, making her whiter than white, but that’s just her cis-race. Who are we to force her to accept society’s arbitrary rules? Race is not a black and white issue. It’s far more nuanced than that. If she says she’s black, then she’s black.

There are those who will seek to belittle Dolezal for her courageous transition from white to black (wtb), but we should celebrate her, just as we celebrate Caitlyn Jenner for her transition from male to female (mtf). Already, Dolezal’s been on the receiving end of hate, just because she identifies as black:

Dolezal said she found a threatening package in the NAACP’s post office box in February, KXLY reported. The city of Spokane later sent out a press release that the package contained racist messages and death threats. The city statement reiterated that it was the ninth hate crime Dolezal had experienced.

The police, of course, are not taking these threats seriously, typical of the rigid cis-race hegemony.

Dolezal claims to have received a number of threatening letters and pictures of lynching in the NAACP’s P.O. box — but the letters did not have date stamps or barcodes, according to the Spokane Police Department. The only way the letters could have been placed in the mailbox would have been via someone with a key or a USPS employee. Police said they have ruled out postal employees as suspects.

Trans-race, it’s the new trans-gender!

    Her “parents” are the ones perpetrating the hoax. Rachel is clearly the love child of Elizabeth Warren and Caitlyn Jenner.

    Who does her hair?  Or is it a wig?

    As amusing as this story is, I don’t think one can take any insight away from it, other than that some people are nuts.

    I’m interested to hear how the story develops.  It sounds less like a mental disorder, and more like a way to get affirmative action or other job benefits.  But who knows.

    It’s things like this that make me skip worrying about Western Civilization and move right on to humanity in general. Yeesh.

    #WrongSkin is trending on Twitter. There is some hilarious Stage 5 trolling going on by conservative twitter today.

    It’s hard for me to see a problem with someone undermining the whole idea of race.

    Is this something to get upset about? It can’t see the downside.

    There is a story that just before the great stock market crash of 1929 that one of the great financiers of the time was getting his shoes polished when the shoe shine boy mentioned that he had bought some stock. The financier went up to his office and called his broker with instructions to sell all of his holdings.

    What this talks to is the evolution of an idea which is something like an elongated letter S. In the beginning only a few people get involved, but as the idea gains more momentum more and more join in. At the top of the S everyone is full invested and believes that the upward trend is going to go on forever. In fact, it is about to plummet.

    The current leftwing lunacy seems to me to be following the same trend. Believing that they represent the “new Normal”, every possible nutcase is coming out of the woodwork and shouting their paean of freedom to the world. This is likely an indication that we have reached the top of the S or the apogee of the pendulum’s swing to the left or, perhaps, the tilting point when the entire structure descends into chaos.

    At what point can I just say that I am the true king of England, just born with the wrong lineage?  I can be trans-royalty.  Or perhaps the heir to Bill Gates fortune because although we are not related and have never met, I feel an entitlement to his money.

    I feel genuinely bad for people who are unhappy, but we are opening a door for all kinds of imposters and charlatans who are riding on the coattails of other people’s misery.

    I wonder which version of “The Talk” she got from her parents?

    The NRO compliant version or the non-compliant version.

    I’d kinda like to be on the record for option A.

    Race is not a fixed characteristic. Only in America could poor black boy Michael Jackson grow up to be a rich white woman.

    You are what you think you is! Biology is oppression! You cis-raced people need to remember what Marlo Thomas tried to teach us 40 years ago:

    She worked as a college professor. Do you think this might have helped her get those jobs? Without affirmative action this never would have happened.

    I guess you could call her a traitor to her race. Sorry. I’ll be hiding under a rock somewhere.

    Or maybe she just misread the form . . . “Darn right, I’m a fricken American!”

    This story does somewhat undermine the narrative that being black is an unmitigated negative in this country, doesn’t it?

    OK, but Eastern Washington U.? This seems like a lot of effort not to be parlayed into an Ivy League professorship. Go big or go home.

    We are finally entering the crazy years. The inmates are no longer running the asylum, they are tearing it down, brick by brick.

    I do believe the progressives are entering the soylent green era.

    Option 1′-Time to create the monasteries to weather the new dark ages that will descend.

    Option 2- Cultivate a less refined sense of humor and laugh out loud at this stuff. No movement can withstand being a laughingstock.

    If black people complain, will they have to set aside their Black Privilege for this poor person who was not fortunate enough to have a legacy of Jim Crow and slavery in her background?

    Our first black president doesn’t have that in his background either.

    I once knew a man with a wooden leg named Smith.

    The leg is filing for joint custody of his left sneaker.

    When you live in a victim hood culture where only those with a history of victimization have moral authority, then finding your ‘victim’ status becomes the center of your being.  If you don’t qualify as a victim due to your birth, you just have to invent a qualification.  Thus, Elizabeth Warren is a native American, Lena Dunham and Mattress girl are rape victims, and this poor woman is an African American.  If you ain’t a victim, you ain’t squat, so line up and declare your victim status today!
