If Bruce Jenner lied about being a man and Michael Jackson lied about being normal why can't this white beauty say she is whatever she wants to be? Black women straighten their hair to resemble white women's hair. This ivory hottie never dyed her skin.
BTW, anyone notice in the Today interview, that when shown a picture of her at 15/16.. She indicated she wasn't yet identifying as black.. But then later claimed she was identifying as black when drawing self portraits at 5 years old? God, this crazy girl just can't stop herself from lying.
Rachel Dolezal to Matt Lauer: ‘I Identify as Black’
...But if you want to truly explore how the Left applauds one kind of troubled falsehood and attacks another, contrast Lauer’s interview of Dolezal with Katie Couric’s fawning interview of Laverne Cox....
...Both Cox and Dolezal are deeply troubled individuals who, for complex reasons, felt alienated from the identity of their birth. In both cases, it’s a sad tale, and Cox and Dolezal need help. Yet to the Left, one person is a hero while the other is a hate object....
Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.
Once the transracial person has undergone skin therapy to increase the amount of melanin, and gone through hair therapy to get that afro look, had a nose flattening procedure, then does he/she have to go to language school to learn to talk like they do in the "hood"? I mean, if you talk like Obama, are you really black? Seems you might have to learn to speak like Fifty Cent or Snoop Dog.
Making Russia great again!
Interesting how Dolezal talks about being described as “trans-racial.” Perhaps this is the angle
she will run with.
I wonder what she means when she accuses her parents of “whitewashing” some of the work she’s done. Poor Rachel. Also interesting is how she claims that she lost her full-ride scholarship and TAship because “other people needed opportunities, and you probably have white relatives and that, you know, that can afford to help you with your tuition, and I thought that this was an injustice.” I don’t know what FERPA restraints Howard University is under or whether it will be able to comment, but I hope it can. How convenient for Dolezal if it can't, however.
When Lauer asks Dolezal whether, given all the fallout, she’d make the same choices and softballs her the question of what positive discussion she hopes to prompt, she says she’d make the same choices and adds “"well, as much as this discussion has somewhat been at my expense recently and in a very sort of viciously inhumane way." Is she always the victim?
She also says her life has been one of survival (I guess this harkens back to her fiction about being forced by her parents to live in a teepee) and that the decisions she has made along the way including how she identifies has been to survive. Oh, the drama with her narcissistic self in the center.
Her reply when Lauer asks whether she could have been as effective an NAACP leader as a Caucasian woman, she actually says she hasn’t had “the opportunity to experience that in those shoes.” Really, the chutzpah of saying she hasn’t had this “opportunity” is astounding.
One of her sons—not sure whether she means her biological son or the adopted brother she adopted—has told her that that racially, she’s human, but culturally, she’s black. Mentally, Dolezal is out of touch with reality.
She’s also a brazen opportunist and liar. I want to learn more, much more, about her claims of hate-crime victimhood and why all of the investigations were closed.
But I don’t expect her to give a straight answer. She’s very evasive. I think that she’s going to have glib, jargon-laden non-answers for every question and that she will continue to babble about the “complexity” of her race, more “complex, you know, than being true or false.” Sort of like how she acknowledges that her 16-year old self in the photo is "visibly" a Caucasian.
