The Proud, Strong and very very Black woman Rachel Dolezal is back, BITCHES!!!

And she hasn't worked in 6 years. No one wants to even hire her as a maid.

She sums up modern pseudo-progressivism better than the most eloquent writer ever could.

Liberalism used to focus on making the lives of poor and middle income people better. Now all anyone cares about is being the center of attention. And they’ll do and say anything to get into that center. Even lie about their status as an oppressed person or victim.

False generalization, almost to the point where I'd suspect Bootsy-Gumdrop is a concern troll. The liberals in Congress are currently gunning for a Covid relief package (among other measures) that will do those very things. That's the mainstream of American liberalism; the Rachel Dolezal type attention-getters (and her moment came and went a few years ago) are only sideshows.

She used her appropriated identity to the same political ends you'd hope a genetically Black woman would. She didn't do it to be the 'center of attention.' Her notoriety was visited upon her by people who wished her ill. She was a private citizen focused on improving the quality of life for Black people. We sometimes say Black is a culture not a race. Dolezal was acculturated Black. Just like in the times when people with African ancestry who did not have a characteristically black appearance have "passed" as ethnicities other than Black or mixed race -- before mixed race identity was a thing.

So much hate and treachery has been directed at Black people, particularly during the Trump years. I can't help but think that the contempt for Dolezal is steeped in white supremacy and anti-Blackness. I think we may owe this woman an apology for presuming to be outraged by her attempt to live her life in a way that does not demean or vilify Black people.

I think white people give her shit because they can't understand why a blonde white woman would want to be black. I think black people got upset because they felt betrayed by her.

What I am unclear on is if she deliberately told people that she was black or if she just let them believe she was black and didn't correct them.

For instance if someone thinks I am 35 when in actuality I'm 45, and I don't correct them is that wrong? If someone thinks I went to Harvard when in reality I went to Boise State and I don't tell them other wise, who is that hurting?

But if I state for the public record that I am a 35 year old Harvard graduate when I'm a 45 year old Boise State graduate, then that is wrong.

All the outrage she has provoked is tangled in RACIST (not racial) politics. For white people, it is an affront to relinquish white privilege and/or to find anything of value in Black identity or culture. For Black people, it is an affront that a low-value white person who has been discarded and abused by her own would cloak herself in Blackness, appropriate our heritage and presume to occupy a place of distinction within our community.

She has injured our psyches because they have been shaped by white supremacy and racism. If you look objectively at what she has done -- pretend to be Black -- there is no actual injury to anyone other than herself and her children.

I read Rachel had a shitty upbringing and I feel she just felt more comfortable around black people and embraced the culture. I think she's authentic. The only questionable thing she did obviously was lying about her race to get jobs but other than that I like her. She did more black people than most black celebrities ( cough Jay-Z cough Kanye West cough Clarence Thomas cough Oprah).

Fair enough, R74. So why do women get attacked and lynched by the woke mobs for pointing out that the same thing gets done to them by men who put on a dress and call themselves "women"?

There is no rational or logical explanation for why one is acceptable and even praised by our current Western cultural norms while the other is criticized.

I agree that there is a solid political basis to reject the idea of "transracial." Only a white person can take that "transracial" journey in America. And only because of old racial classifications used to fortify chattel slavery. So you could be a mixed race, white-looking "Black" person but until recently it was forbidden for a mixed-race person to identify as white, even if they appeared "white." That tanning lotion and afro wig, allowed Nkechi to walk alongside Black people, with the presumption of a whole Black identity, and to do so unquestioned. If a 'white' person is found to have Black ancestry they are immediately 'non-white' -- i.e. I've heard that Carly Simon now identifies as mixed-race.

All that aside, I don't understand why Nkechi is attacked as if she created this social construct of race. The "transgender" analogy is still very compelling. Why doesn't she receive the compassion that everyone (outside of Datalounge) is expected to offer to other "trans" persons?

When my workplace surveyed everyone as part of a diversity initiative I checked the box for Native American. I mean, I'm pretty white, but I was born here and that's the literal meaning of "native". If that's not what they meant then maybe they should use "Indigenous" as a choice.
