    Her fifteen minutes expired long ago.

    There are already at least two images of Dolezal's head superimposed on Caitlyn Jenner's in the Vanity Fair cover shot.

    You weren't clear, you said one thing then explained it as completely different.

    "There is a wide consensus that the racial categories that are common in everyday usage are socially constructed, and that racial groups cannot be biologically defined.[20][21][22][23][24][25]....Nonetheless, some scholars argue that racial categories obviously correlate with biological traits (e.g. phenotype) to some degree, and that certain genetic markers have varying frequencies among human populations, some of which correspond more or less to traditional racial groupings. For this reason, there is no current consensus about whether racial categories can be considered to have significance for understanding human genetic variation.[26]

    When people define and talk about a particular conception of race, they create a social reality through which social categorization is achieved.[27] In this sense, races are said to be social constructs.[28] These constructs develop within various legal, economic, and sociopolitical contexts, and may be the effect, rather than the cause, of major social situations.[29] While race is understood to be a social construct by many, most scholars agree that race has real material effects in the lives of people through institutionalized practices of preference and discrimination.

The movement is larger than a moment in time or a single person’s story, and I hope that everyone offers their robust support of the Journey for Justice campaign that the NAACP launches today!

    “It is with complete allegiance to the cause of racial and social justice and the NAACP that I step aside from the Presidency and pass the baton to my Vice President, Naima Quarles-Burnley. It is my hope that by securing a beautiful office for the organization in the heart of downtown, bringing the local branch into financial compliance, catalyzing committees to do strategic work in the five Game Changer issues, launching community forums, putting the membership on a fast climb, and helping many individuals find the legal, financial and practical support needed to fight race-based discrimination, I have positioned the Spokane NAACP to buttress this transition.” Rachel Dolezal Resigns As NAACP Leader Amid Controversy « CBS Seattle

    Gobbledegook which is often done when there is no/can't give an answer. What is brought to the fore are the issues of integrity and honesty I believe.
    It doesn't even sound coherent. It is bad when people that wander around all the little animals in the woods make more sense than this.
