    For a black person to pass as white, their history has to be erased. This includes all family ties. For them to be outed after they pass, would mean serious legal and social problems.

    Dolezal has tried to erase her family while creating a fictional one. Now she even says, ""I haven't had a DNA test. There's been no biological proof that Larry and Ruthanne are my biological parents. ...I'm not necessarily saying that I can prove they're not. But I don't know that I can actually prove they are. I mean, the birth certificate is issued a month and a half after I'm born. And certainly there were no medical witnesses to my birth."

    And if she has falsified legal documents, and if she has made false hate-crime reports to the police, I hope she finds herself with serious legal problems.

    It's too late to help her with her little social problem here; she's very much hoist by her own petard.

    Someone really needs to do her a favor and tell her to shut up. She's just making a bad situation for herself only worse, seriously. Hire a PR firm and hide for a while until something else comes up on the news. Pretend you're Josh Duggar.

    Bad situation? Huh? She's being treated like the most interesting person in the country right now. She stands to make millions off of this, why on earth would she hire a PF firm to hide in the sand???

    I provided the same number of reasons as you did, so we can both be correct.

    There's a long history of American blacks doing everything they can to be a "white" in appearance as possible. She's the product of that.
    Too bad they just didn't focus on being American.

    Well, we know that throughout history, America has focused on making blacks part of America.

    Re: Rachel Dolezal resigns as NAACP leader amid racial identity controversy

    I only dropped into this thread because I am wondering why this is a story that is getting so much headlines. What and how in the holy hell does this crap matter at all? At best it should have passed by in the notables "news of the weird" for a day. Why is this crap all over the news and radio and whatnot. WHO REALLY GIVES A **** AND WHY?

    Please let this pointless and unbelievably stupid story die America.
