‘Pro-black, Activist’ Rachel Dolezal: ‘Race is a Social Construct’

Rachel Dolezal – who was born white but spent years posing as a black civil rights leader – is back in the spotlight with a brand new memoir about her life as a “trans-racial” women.

Dolezal’s book, In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World dives deep into the 2015 media frenzy that erupted after the former NAACP branch president identified as “African-American.”

    “If I would have had time to really, you know, discuss my identity, I probably would have described a more complex label, pan-African, pro-black, bisexual, mother, artist, activist, but I think the question, Are you African-American? — I haven’t identified as African-American.”

    Would it kill her to think of herself as a human being, first and foremost? This obsession with identity is pathological.

    • Mark Matis

      There is a far better word to describe her. But if one dares use it, one’s post will be deleted and one will be banned.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      I think it would kill her.

      That suits Comedy Central just fine.
      The only thing they’ve got going for them is that Trevor Noah is funnier than Amy Schumer.

    Then any white or asian person who identifies as a black person or feels they are one, should be able to cash in on all the grants and accommodations made for people with more melanin. If not, why not?

      There’s an old joke about a guy who was asked what the most painful part of a sex change was.
      He said it was when they took out half his brain.
      I’m going to hell.
      Today is my wedding anniversary.
      (I love you babe! Eighteen years and I’d do it all again even if I knew then what I know now.)

      • Tooth&Claw

        Happy anniversary!
        Over thirty years here. Some of those years were a tough slog.

        • Shebel

          Happy Anniversary !
          Over 40 years —and – She is off traveling some where–
          I enjoy the peace and quiet .

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Some time apart is good.
            It used to be just her going off to bingo.
            Now it’s three months at a time.

          • Shebel

            Maybe,you are like me and can’t stand the crowds of tourism.
            She likes the crowds and laying on the beach.
            I hate the crowds and the beach.
            Give me some trees and my puppy dog—
            And something to BURN.
            And beer.
            I am a cheap date.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            So am I.
            It comes from being broke most of your life.
            Crikey, I am still broke.
            Just as long as I have Cigarettes and Alcohol.
            I drop the Cigarettes for a year every three years or so.
            And then Justin got elected.

          • Shebel

            I am a Vapor—- but I sure would like to have a cigarette.
            I must admit that all these lobby groups that are against vaping and support heroin injection sites -are INSANE.
            If you use the ‘Harm reduction ” bit then you must use it for both.
            Otherwise you are just a hypocritical , bought and paid for
            LIAR.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Absolutely.
            Drives me nuts that marijuana is good and nicotine is bad.

          • Shebel

            If I started smoking Mary Jane– then she would have to carry an oxygen tank for me.
            As it is –I don’t need one.
            I actually never realized how much of a difference- not smoking would make. Takes a good year.

            My wife and I traded our rights to choose what to do with ourselves the day we got married.

          • Shebel

            How so? I don’t follow.
            When I got married—I never changed—
            My friends did.
            They became like olde married men once the wedding was over.
            They were all in their 20ies.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            We made a promise to each other on our wedding day that we were forever bonded and we could only ever play together.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          We are still slogging.
          Even though she came up north for the last week she’s kinda bummed today and so am I.
          She went back on Saturday.
          We’re six hundred miles apart.
          It’s the first time we’ve spent our anniversary away from each other.

          • Tooth&Claw

            Disconnection makes both parties feel like crap on toast. Keeping the connection takes a little bit of creativity and thoughtfulness.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I volunteered to come up here so we wouldn’t be forced to move somewhere we didn’t want to go.
            Sure, it’s a little bit more money but that wasn’t the point.
            We wanted our kids to stay in the city and finish high school with all of their friends.
            Had a wonderful time together last week.
            It’s the first time we’d had that much time to ourselves since our kids were born.
            It is an open ended assignment but not forever.

          • Tooth&Claw

            My spouse and I were apart for a year. We both traveled to and fro to be with one another weather permitting, for the same reason…work.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I figure four years.

          • Shebel

            What kind of HELL did you put the poor girl thru ?

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Maybe you should consider that it was fantastically mutual.
            I have loved her since I first saw her twenty two years ago.
            Took each of us to work out our own hangups before we surrendered to each other.

          • Shebel

            Before you consummated the relationship ?

          • Shebel

            I was just joking. —sorry.
            I raise my Cup—to another 22 Years.

          The neat thing for me back then was telling my boss I wasn’t working Easter Brunch.
          Sorry, I’m getting married, you’ll just have to figure out how to do it without me.

          • Shebel

            So what did your Boss do ?
            Good thing you didn’t say—-
            ” So,Fuck you, fuck the company , fuck your salary , fuck your your family and fuck anyone that is stupid enough to work at this stupid fucking,half assed ,miserable excuse for a Company”

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            You can’t tell someone they can’t get married.

          • Shebel

            I know.
            My daughters taught me that.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I love you Shebel.
            That might sound facile.
            But, it’s not.
            You’re fucking fantastic, man.

            I worked every holiday for ten years there except that one day.
            Pretty sure I earned it.
            One weekend to get married.
            I didn’t give him an ultimatum.
            Just said this is what I’m doing.
            I was five years in at that point.
            Later on, I got to give him the subtle ‘screw you’.
            I went back to school after our kids were in elementary.

          • Shebel

            Are you female?

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            No.

          • Shebel

            Are you Gay?

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            What the fuck?
            Are you?
            By the way you should have said are you a gay.

          • Shebel

            It was a question. Not a condemnation.

            Don’t go fucking crazy now.

            There is no need.

            No. I am not gay . I find the whole concept a bit difficult to understand.

            But-I want to.

            For me —nothing has changed
            Get over yourself.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            No, I’m six or seven hundred miles from my wife on our anniversary.

          • Shebel

            You do realize that I was brought up at a time when the word homosexual , really was equated with perversion and sickness. I was about 11 years old before I learned what a Lesbian was. Before that -I always thought that girls were perfect. I still do.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            For fuck’s sake.
            I was only trying to say that I like your opinions.
            Last week, when my wife drove up north, we fucked three times a day because we hadn’t seen each other in three months.

          • Shebel

            This is nice . We have left each other in a precarious position.
            I am sorry. Sometimes ,I jump the gun.
            I really do apologize.

  • Clink9

    Ah! The good old days. When they would put lunatics like her in an insane asylum.

  • Hard Little Machine

    A biologist would to agree in the same sway that a poodle and a huskie are both dogs. But I’m not sure that’s the point she wants to make. If it were then all ‘black’ people could declare themselves ‘white’ and end all racism forever.

    • Shebel

      I thought that the Fatherly advice from the /60s Mississippi, in the Movie, was pretty Deep.
      Especially, if you correlate the same message –to 2017.
      No?

        I was just checking for squirrels.

    Maybe she had a thing for trans-racial black/white dick at a young age and that set her off? Who knows?

    What I do know is that she’s as mad as a hatter, several cards short of a full deck, certifiably nuts.

    But what’s even more frightening is her celebrity status, which to me speaks volumes about the postmodern multicultural hell we all in many ways inhabit in North America.
