Well, this has been an interesting week hasn’t it? I’m sure by now most of you have heard of Rachel Dolezal, the NAACP president from Spokane, Washington who was recently discovered perpetrating a fraud. For years, Dolezal pretended to be Black, and steeped herself into the culture. Talk about going all the way with it. It’s one thing to be an ally, but to take on an identity that isn’t truly yours? This is pretty deep.
How many people were in on this? Is Iggy Azealea somewhere taking notes? Is this peak “Columbusing”? Does her “activist cred” shield her from criticism of years of lying? I need my peoples to tell me whats on their minds with this situation. The jokes are flourishing online, so I will end this post with this last point. What is crazy is that, after all is said and done, she’ll probably have a book deal. Oh well.
(I’m really Black, y’all)
