You could say that she has the "privilege" to return to "whiteness" whenever the mood strikes her ...




LOL, I guess one could say that, but that's a stretch and there are many terms that better describe that ability.




She takes off the makeup, and loosens the corn rows, and she'll never be followed in a store again, or pulled over by the cops for no reason...she has options


So true. Her White privilege is part of those options. She knows she's a fraud. Seems like she is desperate for attention, and found a way to get it and benefit from deception. Her posing as a Black woman will not make things better for race relations in America or erase America's barbaric history of slavery and racism. She is an insult to all the Blacks who were killed and abused for just being Black, at the hands of sick racists. Which racial/ethnic group will she decide to claim she is next? Asian, Native American? Lol.

I'm sure we'd all agree that being white is still a big advantage in today's USA, so if you are white why would you want to change that?


Please clarify so I can respond appropriately:

Are you saying you believe white people are superior to black people, therefore it's better to be white?

Or are you saying the vast majority of white people are racists who discriminate against black people, and since there's more white people in the US than black people it's therefore better to be white?

here's an interesting article:

The contradiction at the heart of Rachel Dolezal’s ‘transracialism’

April 11, 2017 7.20am EDT | : http://theconversation.co...lism-75820

~

last three paragraphs of an (imo) outstanding article:

Dolezals’s problem is this: to choose one’s racial identity irrespective of inheritance is tantamount to an admission that race does not exist. It would be one thing to adopt a black identity as a show of political resistance and solidarity, but Dolezal is instead in danger of laying claim to what is arguably a racist fantasy of “blackness”. If we fail to take her seriously, we run the risk both of ignoring the critical issues at stake and, worse, accepting uncritically Dolezal’s repurposing of racial ideology. If we are to accept that there is any such thing as “transracial” then it should be as an opportunity for all of us to transcend the politically expedient but specious categories of race.

Instead, by claiming race as some kind of mysterious inner state divorced either from its political, historical or ethnic specificity, Dolezal could do the opposite of transcending race; rather, she runs the risk of reinforcing racial and racist models by insisting that race is an innate, inner experience rather than something imposed from without.

If Dolezal is genuine in her claim that “race is a lie”, then she must recognise that her claims to transracialism are also lies. She simply cannot have it both ways; because race either is, or it isn’t.

the whole concept of r dolezal's self image is now imo a dichotomous situation. is she about to experience a reckoning? if so will she make sense in her new explanations?

This is a great article. Thanks for digging it up freeda. The one at the bottom was interesting although no real data on her slant. Is changing one's race a sign of mental health problems?

imo and new conclusion, for rachel dolezal seems the term *"faux-latto" might better fit her self invented raciality.

~

*fauxlatto meaning:

Anthropology. (not in technical use) the offspring of two white parents, tanning products. chemically treated store bought hair for weaving or braiding, psychological delusions, neo breed.

~

see the following article:

Rachel Dolezal's flawed comparisons of race and gender are the epitome of white privilege

April 4, 2017 | : https://mic.com/articles/....LJSpiPmeN

~

one writer's pov.

excerpt:

The push by transgender and gender-nonconforming people in recent years has been to acknowledge that in reality, we all exist on a continuum that's impossible to identify at birth. While Dolezal could seemingly have lived under the radar, trans people don't hide despite facing real — and sometimes deadly — danger because their identity is seen as a threat. Dolezal was perfectly content to pass herself off as a black woman until her parents "outed" her in 2015.

Until then, Dolezal was doing what so many light-skinned black people had been doing for centuries — "passing" as the opposite race, only in reverse, she said during a Facebook Live interview with the New York Times. In this way, she had much more to lose. Whereas black people who passed did so for safety and the social and financial benefits of white privilege, she made a choice to lose those privileges. Things have only gotten harder since she was "outed," Dolezal said. She hasn't been able to find a job, a circumstance that forced her to publish a memoir and go on the road to the nation's top publications to publicize it.

Put simply: Rachel Dolezal is the very worst of white privilege. There is no separating yourself from the systems that created you. But here's Dolezal, insisting she's got it harder than everyone else and pleading with us to accept her deception as courage.

It's not. And we won't.

* fauxlatto = my take on r. dolezal's racial type - i made up my own definition of the word.

~

yes, i'm feeling different towards her. seems she's become a master manipulator in a kinda syrupy aspertame kinda way.

i tried to buy her story, now the more i research her journey the more i understand the core of why so many reject her mindset.

i don't hate her, i hate her message. deception at it's worse?

it just seems after all is said and done we the public are being dragged along with a woman who is playing out some deep seated anger and revenge she is holding against her true biological parents.

esther dolezal photo.

^^^^^^^^

lastly her african american sister, esther dolezal, where is she? why didn't r dolezal bring her into her home like she did her (so called) a.american brothers she was raised with? why has she NEVER mentioned esther dolezal in all her many interviews?

(april 19, how will she be accepted in s.a.?)

I'm trying to start a dialogue here about a subject that nobody is willing or able to discuss. What other options can there be when stating white people have this huge advantage? If I had to guess, I'd say you were stating all white people discriminate against people of color and play favorites when it comes to other white people. But I don't wanna guess, I want you to tell me what you meant. Because from my point of view, God created every race equal. No race is more or less intelligent than any other.

And none of that changes that she is White. Fact is, that when she washes off the brown makeup, and goes out in society, and reveals her true white identity, she will benefit from white privilege whether she wants to admit it or not. This is just the way it is within America's racial system. It is not surprising that for many Americans, that it is an uncomfortable truth, they are not willing to admit is a reality in American society.

There have been biracial (Black/White parentage) individuals, who have lived the life of passing as White, for years. Difference is, their being from two racial identities, gives them more claim to choose which racial identity they want to identify as, based on their parents racial identities, moreso than Rachel dies. Unfortunately, they don't escape the harsh criticisms from many within society for their choosing either, but the difference between them and Rachel, is that Rachel was not born from biracial parentage, her parents were of the same racial group, which is why many are curious and question her claim and motive.

yeah,

at this point it's taking on some strange images for me.

for the past two days that r. dolezal has crossed my mind, the mj gif is how i'm seeing her in my mind's eye.:

200.webp#5

falloff

i mean with my sense of humor and the many of her over-exposed psychological levels on her her-ness, seems dolezal is trying to take us on all a frivolous journey about her sad downtrodden past. then she gives some sort of educated black blues rap only after her white to black cover up exposure, circa, june 2015.

now we witness her press related news interviews that have been a convenient catylyst for her agenda to become a successful author.

imo r. dolezal is at best becoming a bit of a narcisisstic self proclaimed martyr, and is feeding off an imaginary world she has gleaned from the (real) world of the black experience.

eek

at this time i'm trying to resist becomming a major dolezal critic. however it's like, Whoa. where is she taking her self to? especially when she, lies, creates false tapestries of her past, colorizes to coverup her true caucasoid type. does the little girl tears on the news, and poof..... she's on her way, with her (one of) two books, to south africa. and i suspect she will glean what she can from the south african black life rhythms to further feed her delusional and abyssmal racial-cultural thefting core.

her unsolicited justification of who/what she has metamorphisised into is just an imagined physio and phycological illusion on her part.

for the observer/listener it's (seemingly) an attempt by r. dolezal to wane people of their truths for them to follow her.

imo she has set a continuous play while waxing and embellishing on her falsehoods.

she has published her memoirs.

are her words (occaisionally proven) lies? or has she presented truths that exist only in her head?


in my neo opinion, aka: imno i feel r. dolezal's views and feelings of being black have no tangibility. as far as the trans issue, that's just another ruse for her to buy time while she writes another book so she can pan handle her psycho-dramatic fairy tale past and her convoluted neo-trans-theory.

yeahthat ^^^^^^^^^

~


just

for funny sake,

one can imagine the following scenario:

if r. d. were to stay at the home of one of the local citizens, i could see the woman of the house saying:

slide yourself from behind that chair.

minny2.jpg

[rachel scoots from behind the chair]
then she the woman of the house says : I need to see you square on at all times.

~

at this point, i see that through a macro and micro-lens at r. dolezal

it is

a mindset that

most if not all would relate to while observing and listening to her.

confused

trans - monsterous?

rolleyes

51PLdn%2B3y-L._AC_UL115_.jpg

4-19-2016 ?

still neutral = no.

however imo once she admits to the lies in her books about how she grew up, and admit to being emotionally confused, i might have tolerance towards the who she is thinks she is.

seems she may well be working within a ruse, and might harbor a hidden agenda, which centers around a vengeful stratagem towards her white family members, and her unsuccessful suing of howard university in 2002.

one might say she needs therapy to heal her psychological self hatred, her delusions, her distortions of the truth, and her apparent white racial misery and self hatred lying very deep inside her psyche.

i dunno, it just seems to me that she needs a therapist to conduct a psychological intervention with her and her original family members.

i don't hate her, i just heavily dislike what she is doing to herself and her (white) dolezal family.

she needs to know and accept her true physio identity and stop the (1976) sybil movie scenario, along with two or three faces of eve,

aka; Dissociative identity disorder and memory impairment syndrome.

^^^exhibits the above^^ disassocation with reality of true self^^^^^

And he'll call her her out on bullshit. It should be interesting.

Uh, REALLY? She changed her name to an African name. She's still claiming to "identify as black". That's a problem, and not improving anything. She lied about her fucking race. That's why people are trippin'.

It's like asking what harm is there in white folks wearing a fake mustache, a poncho, and a sombrero on Cinqo De Mayo.

How about for all of us who support Black Lives Matter just paint our faces black in solidarity? Cuz you know - we are about all the right things.



I couldn't care less what someone looks like, as long as their heart is in the right place and they are actively working to make things better for others.

Life is too short, and the problems are too big, to worry about petty stuff like that.

She was perpetrating, instead of just being herself. She did a lot of good things for minorities, when she was NAACP president and she should have just did those things as herself. Also, I would like to point out that you do have blacks that can pass for white, and have black DNA, but her DNA testing points to white and her parents also said she's white.

"Race and Racial Identity Are Social Constructs"

onwuachi-willig_angela_210x270.jpg

by: Angela Onwuachi-Willig, a professor of law at the University of Iowa College of Law

article published September 2016 | : https://www.nytimes.com/r...constructs

excerpt:

Race is not biological. It is a social construct. There is no gene or cluster of genes common to all blacks or all whites. Were race “real” in the genetic sense, racial classifications for individuals would remain constant across boundaries.

so is rachel dolezal a racial identity parrot?

one wonders if she is (in large part) hoaxing the world out of vengeance to her biological family?

Book review: Dolezal’s motives for posing as black

Fri., March 24, 2017, 10:25 a.m. | : http://www.spokesman.com/...-as-black/

published by the SPOKESMAN Review-Spokane Wa news publication

exerpt from article:

This jaw-dropping myopia displays the book’s most acute dose of white privilege ideology, which essentially comes down to vision: blindness to the invisible knapsack of advantages one wears every day and, more than that, an all-around inability to properly see one’s privileged place in the world. Consider it the polar opposite of the double consciousness that W.E.B. Du Bois famously described, whereby African-Americans must persistently, simultaneously see themselves while seeing others see them. To say Dolezal lacks such double consciousness is an understatement. She is most white in her dramatic inability to see why we cannot call her black.

It's like asking what harm is there in white folks wearing a fake mustache, a poncho, and a sombrero on Cinqo De Mayo.


Oh come on now, no comparison. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, that's what the sombrero etc is all about. Big difference between copying cultural traditions once a year in tribute of their holiday, and pretending to be a different race 24/7. There's nothing offensive about dressing up as a Mexican, or playing cowboys and indians as a kid, or dressing up for St Patrick's Day, or playing Super Mario.

Rach is on Dr Phil on Monday 4/17. hmm




And whether folks like Dr. McGraw or not, they can be sure of one thing: He won't kiss her ass, he will ask difficult questions (especially coming from a medical and mental point of view, instead of the "what's wrong with you?" type stuff). And he'll call her her out on bullshit. It should be interesting.



The commercial clip shows him drilling down on her. Really not a fan of his or his tactics but agree it will be interesting to see her in action (if I remember to watch it).


Dr. Phil will just tell her she's white, deal with it, and stop pretending she's Black. popcorn
