Rachel Dolezal: I Identify as Black
We all remember the white head of a NAACP chapter that was outed last year. She claimed that she was a black girl trapped in a white body. Such foolishness seems now to be normal in some groups, but wholly unbelievable by most people.
Now, this crazy woman has written a book about her life. I cannot believe that others would read this but, some have. She now claims that her issue is political, rather than ethnic.
Heat Street reports:
Promoting the book on The Today Show, Dolezal was asked by co-anchor Savannah Guthrie to justify why she insists on describing herself as a member of the African American community instead of merely identifying with the group.
Dolezal corrected Guthrie, saying “I don’t identify as African American, I identify as black.
“I am part of the Pan-African diaspora and I definitely feel like in America, even though race is a social construct and we’ve acknowledged this in academia and in science there still is a line drawn in the sand.
To me, this seems to be a twisting of words. What Dolezal is saying is that there is a race war and she is choosing to oppose her own race. But, does this type of money grubbing rhetoric only further the claims of groups like the KKK?
She is claiming that it is white verse black and she is choosing to be black. This is the same as a rapist saying that they were going to stand with the violated because that was the way he felt. He identifies as raped.
If there is a “White Supremacy Myth,” as she claims, she is as guilty of it as I am. She may be even guiltier, as she is now using her “identity” as a means to make money.
