Sorry I'm late to the party, does the NAACP have a problem? Since Bubba was the first black President, I'm not sure why Dolezal can't be.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
According to her parents she was married to an African American guy before she was pretending to be black and she got a divorce so apparently some seem to think she "Decided to try and be black" because she didn't fit into the black community and that's why it didn't work with her black husband. Either way I think this is amusing and this definitely describes to the letter every single raving "Anti Racist uppity white woman" I've ever dealt with. I am actually not surprised by this at all. If you've ever met a white woman who's dating a black man you'll know immediately that something's just off. She often goes beyond what would even be considered "normal" biased leftism right into irrationality.
A lot of women (of all races but especially white women) simply don't have a culture so they attempt to adopt, often radically so, another peoples culture and defend and attack for it at all costs even when they have no true legitimate connection to it themselves.
Had to happen, this story had no where to go but get increasingly worse.
"Every time something really bad happens, people cry out for safety, and the government answers by taking rights away from good people." - Penn Jillette.
When people define and talk about a particular conception of race, they create a social reality through which social categorization is achieved. In this sense, races are said to be social constructs. These constructs develop within various legal, economic, and sociopolitical contexts, and may be the effect, rather than the cause, of major social situations. 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.

"I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance." William Faulkner
A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

Black Like Me is a nonfiction book by journalist John Howard Griffin first published in 1961. Griffin was a white native of Dallas, Texas and the book describes his six-week experience travelling on Greyhound buses (occasionally hitchhiking) throughout the racially segregated states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia passing as a black man. Sepia Magazine financed the project in exchange for the right to print the account first as a series of articles.
Griffin kept a journal of his experiences; the 188-page diary was the genesis of the book.
At the time of the book's writing in 1959, race relations in America were particularly strained and Griffin aimed to explain the difficulties that black people faced in certain areas. Under the care of a doctor, Griffin artificially darkened his skin to pass as a black man.
