In defense of Rachel Dolezal: She showed “imagination, creativity and an affection for black people”

For years, Rachel Dolezal “passed” as black, to the point of landing an important job with the NAACP.

    Affectation for black people, more like.

    • Frau Katze

      Her parents had adopted four black children. I guess she came to identify with them

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        In a Patty Hearst kind of way.
        Her parents are goofs.
        Who adopts four kids when they have their own still growing up in their house?

        • Frau Katze

          It does seem kind of different. Now the parents say she’s cut them off and won’t speak to them.

            She’s gone black, and ain’t ever comin’ back.

            The parents, adopting all those black kids, looks pretty damn weird. Obviously that did some psychological damage to the daughter.

          • It’s either the kids get a chance at life or shovel-fight in the ghetto.

        • Good people.

          People do this sort of thing all the time. The problem isn’t adopting children with your own; the problem is with Rachel who lied about herself for her own reasons.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            She clearly has a case of Stockholm Syndrome.

          • Or Al Sharpton Syndrome.

      • She identified AS them.

        If a man can become a woman and vice versa anything is possible. I guess I could call myself Chinese or black or whatever if I felt like I could pass. I wonder how she turned her hair all dark and curly. Was she getting a dye job and a perm? At least her hairdresser would have know she was a fake.

    Good going Ezra, you’re batting a1000.

    Just as there have been phonies who have claimed to have survived the Nazi death camps or won Silver Stars in battle.

  • marty_p

    She’s about as black as Jrock is on Trailer Park Boys.

  • The Butterfly

    I’m a butterfly.

  • Is this just another example of white privilege, or is it a white person doing a job that black people will not do? I’m soooo confused!

    Since now one can claim that “gender” is fluid and is not based on biological fact, one cannot claim that race is any different. That is why I fail to understand the outrage.

  • jzaik

    I don’t know what the big deal is. I’ve always felt like a dominican woman inside. And that’s what I consider myself.

  • jzaik

    Why am I not seeing a lot of Sideshow Bob jokes with this fiasco.

  • edlancey

    I have sympathy for her. Even if she does have a terminal dose of jungle fever she’s a lot more credible than Bruce Jenner.

  • DMB

    If only comedian Dave Chappelle was in charge of the NAACP. I’m sure he would set them straight! LOL

  • andycanuck

    Maybe she’ll sue them for wrongful dismissal 🙂 although so far they seem to be standing behind her (although I’ve been out all day so maybe that’s changed).

  • Uh, sorry, but she perpetrated a fraud to make herself feel good, not advance the cause of a slighted people.

  • bob e

    some one please man the ropes so we can pull ezra’s head out of his ass ..
    this woman said she was raised in a teepee & hunted her
    food with bow & arrow .. she was also beaten mercilessly by baboon whips,
    which are kept close at hand due to the profusion of baboons on the great plains
    christ ..i bet she didn’t even have a can opener ..

    it’s a good thing that i am already mental ..
