Rachel Dolezal

Transracial author Rachel Dolezal says transgender people face less abuse than she does.

The former director of the Spokane, Washington NAACP is a Caucasian woman who identifies as black. She says there is more acceptance for people who identify as transgender than there is for her.

Dolezal, who recently came out as bisexual, told Salon magazine she identified as transracial around the same time Bruce "Caitlyn" Jenner came out as a heterosexual transgender.

“What’s not similar is the stigma right now. There was stigma [for transgenders] in the past, for sure, and that still perpetuates," she said.

Dolezal added: “But there’s more acceptance for gender fluidity than there is for race fluidity right now, and I don’t think anybody would deny that. There was a time when we did call transgender, and even gay and bisexual, people crazy … just stigmatized and rejected [them].

“Maybe we will evolve and grow, and racial fluidity will become a thing in 20 years? I do hope that inclusivity does expand to all people of all stripes."

The 39-year-old mother-of-3 legally changed her name to Nkechi Amare Diallo. she is currently busy promoting her new book, In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World.

  • Look@m3

    I was afraid to say "WTH is is transracial?" you made it ok. Thank you because I have never heard that term before and thought I was losing my marbles.
    That interview she gave was epic! I never laughed so hard at my own confusion.

  • Guess Who

    Must be a daily torment to live in a state of delusion.

    I'm sure it's a constant internal struggle. She need to be on SOMEBODY couch talking about this.

  • Libra80sBaby

    I think I may be Transemployee. I am not the boss where I work at, but there are days where in my mind, I think I am the CEO and should be paid as such on those days.

  • Look@m3

    Well hell....My name is *&^^& and I am a transemployee as well. Do we seek help for this?

  • Rayne

    Whatever Rachel ?

    I ordered me two pair of Nike running shoes from Walmart. Finna see what's to that. Has anyone ordered shoes from Walmart before?

  • Libra80sBaby

    Meh....maybe we SHOULD, but nobody else is, so I think we goodt.

  • Look@m3

    Nike....walmart? You joking?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I really cannot stand this chick.

    Along the same lines, I have plans for a couple of vacations in the coming months. I was online looking for a swimsuit and naturally I started looking for black owned swim lines. I have gone to about 5 websites so far. 3 of the 5 websites feature white or hispanic women. I'm perplexed.

  • IAINTMADATCHA

    Who has time for Rachel and her little brand of crazy.

  • Look@m3

    Uhm so what is up with Mel B tho.....did anyone predict she was being abused??

  • Rayne

    No. They are nice too. One pair low top mesh Nike white and black. I liked them so I ordered them

  • casiepriest33

    Well you wanted the black experience sweetie and you got it!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    No, but you're not actually ordering it from Walmart. It's like
    Amazon now. It is coming from a third party seller.

  • SpiceGirl

    does ANY ONE else cares that she wants to be black?? I damn sure don't. and the last time I said this...some folks came for my head talking about...im part of the problem yada yada yada....

  • Look@m3

    I just spent my arm and a leg buying nikes but they custom......Let me check out the scene real quick!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    What I'm not going to do, is listen to the woes of a woman pretending to be a member of a group that has known nothing but marginalization, oppression, and disfranchisement since they were dragged of the dam ship.

    I really cannot stand her azz.

    This bitch! They just make up shit nowadays!

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    I don't understand all the hatred for her. People complain that White people don't pay attention to black, etc etc more privilege etc etc (and I don't deny any of that) but then this woman who has fought for and to be black is hated by the people she wants to be or identifies as. I don't get it.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    I actually like Rachel. At least she's concerned with the advancement of black people. I feel is Bruce Jenner can be "Caitlyn", then why can't Rachel be black? #TeamRachelWhateverColorSheWantsToBe!!!????

    When you've been around, not really a surprise. They got married after a short courtship and Eddie had just kicked her to the curb. That Frankenstein's monster most likely wanted the perks of being Mr scary spice but never respected her.

  • Libra80sBaby

    I agree, however we need to stop putting names to things that are really mental illness.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    She really needs to go away !!!!!!

    Saw a couple of posts down SR said old Roses are gone slumming. Since you housed em a long time, does that make you a slum lord? Asking for approximately 15 friends.

  • Kanyade

    Racial fluidity. What in the entire land of Hades does THAT mean!?!

  • Look@m3

    yeah I didn't follow her until the middle of her marriage with this guy. I knew she was with Eddie but I was only following her for workout/health reasons and they seemed to be so happy so this morning was a shock to me. I was reading a blog that she had a incident and lied and said she fell down the stairs when really he was the cause of the bruise on her face. Sad.

  • Guess Who

    That and perhaps some good old fashion electro-shock therapy.

  • Look@m3

    The mental illness part I totally agree with...all that trying to help advance people of color and you can't even accept who you are or accept your own identity- Im good. You can't help me advance with your unrecognized mental sicknesses. Im still trying to access the mental illnesses surrounding me at work.

    People have no problem with 6'2 Bruce Jenner claiming to be a woman and not even trying to change his voice but the moment a white person want to be black, all hell breaks loose.
    Hell people have been passing for years.. but I guess to try to be black is so disgusting. Why???

    I think they all have issues, but I'm not mad at at them... If you feel you are a woman but you're genetically a man, I'm not mad, if you feel more comfortable as a black woman...Oh well... None of these people are affecting my life.. More power to them all.. Even Bruce.. shit it's their life..

  • Look@m3

    What did you get out of the book? Didn't know she had a book? Did she talk about how she discovered that she was really black?

  • Thismessismessy

    Rachel aging like the white woman she was born as. Girl you straight. Gay. Bi. Black. White. You trying to be every woman. Fukk you.

    This doesn't sound good! So was she the cause of the divorce between Eddie and Nicole?

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Mel B is worth over $30 million, and this dude is basically broke. You'd think he'd be on his best behavior and be a model/dream husband in that situation. Homebody messed up. A lot of men would kill be be in a good situation like that.

  • Thismessismessy

    I saw you said you had gotten her book and people here read you for it. People here can't even share their reading habits. I commend you for wanting the other side to the story

    I need to look into this because I was thinking he was one of those random guys that was rich but just unheard of. I guess I followed them but didn't research them like that. So her piece of the spice girl check got her 30 mil! Me, not a spice girl fan, but never thought 30 mil! If this is the case yeah he mucked up! But they got kids together so hopefully he don't try to pull a andree (Towanda's husband and try and take the kids and the houses)

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Maybe Rachel never heard of Teena Marie and Vanilla Ice and French Montana?

    I adore Rachel, but she needs to admit that she misled people. Its that simple. Had she been upfront, she would not have had to endure such a humiliating and international backlash.

    Its OK for her to embrace and submerse herself in black culture; but she made a choice to lie about it and it bit her in the ass.

    Obviously, some people--black and white--will resent her for wanting to be black regardless. But I can't imagine that being worse than living a life as an obvious transgender in a society such as the one we're living in.

  • Ajavee

    She's steadily crying I am sick of her.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Well, don't you agree that Howard should be open to a white person who chooses to attend school there?

    HBCUs are in decline so I would hope they'd be willing to accept anybody these days.

  • Rayne

    Not every woman lmfaoo all in a days work for her lol

  • Thismessismessy

    HBCUs have sued each other. Clark sued Morris Brown over land and helped get it shut down practically, and HBCUs in general, they tried to sue the Obama administration over student loans. Same outrage or no?

  • https://www.twitter.com/flyassblizzy Big Blizzy

    transracial? haha... we just making up ish now huh?

  • Thismessismessy

    New post.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    HBCUs don't have the same meaning they once did, unfortunately. These schools are winging it; instead of working to get new students, they are more or less keeping the doors open by saying "I'm A Black School, Come Here". That's just not enough anymore.

    One of my kids went to Morehouse. I'm proud of that but Morehouse has really declined over the years, and some of the kids going to school there are more dangerous and selling more drugs than the guys in the Bluff neighborhood surrounding the school.

    And faculty knows it.

  • Look@m3

    Which they do. Clark for one has several Asians and whites in attendance.

  • Look@m3

    Good info.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    That's a good thing. HBCUs have a tendency to live in the past. I appreciate the camaraderie of a black school, but graduates are not going out into an all-black world.

    And the truth is, most HBCU graduates get their credentials and move away from the hood anyway so the notion that HBCUs are training blacks to be leaders in their own communities is a vanishing point.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    WOW. She hasn't done anything to make black folks hate her. She's just looking for acceptance but she went about it the wrong way.

    Had she been honest I am sure your opinion would be different. And that's what she should have done. By being an out and proud white woman who wholesale accepted black culture, she would have earned a lot of support and made an important point in the social discussion.

    But the lies did her in.

  • IAmLegend

    Absolutely rare af! LOL

  • i troll it like i see it

    Not too long ago I saw a news clip about a white man spending thousands on surgery to look like an Asian man, and let's not even get started on all the Asian people spending millions to look white. I don't think this is too uncommon. i know this isn't exactly the same thing but it's time to cut slack, there are children involved who I personally don't want to see homeless and suffering over something mom did.

  • Look@m3

    Yeah I did not go to an HBCU to be a leader in my community. Maybe if it was during the 70's. However, most Greek Folk do give back to the community like the AKA's, Deltas were always giving back and doing things constantly. There are some that run for office and use that as a means of giving back to their community. However I know this may sound odd but I don't completely believe in Diversity I for one went to all black schools and my hubby the opposite. Im not against it but I don't feel pressed to be around diverse group of people in order to be successful. Some of the folk that went to these diverse schools scare me because I wonder if they even know they black but I just look and stare at them as they try to over look racist and prejudice behaviors.

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Prof. Taco Juice

    That, I can't confirm because Nicole stayed a while after the tranny incident but I believe Nicole's last child and Angel are very close in age.

  • smackyamoms

    Is there another word for her besides delusional?

  • n1kk1a

    Thank you. In my eyes, she didn't do anything wrong.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    No, I would not have supported her. What point would she have made? I don't understand black people's obsession with seeing their culture or life validated by white imitation and appropriation. I'm not handing out cookies to yt people that like to the dougie or quote Kendrick Lamar. This melanin shyt is for life. The marginalization is for life. The systemic racism and oppression is for life. It's not cute. It's not trendy. It's a fl.cking struggle. Daily. So, no she would not have gotten an ounce of support from me. She can kiss my entire black azz.

  • n1kk1a

    I haven't finished yet, but she's not Black, she knows she's white, but she feels like she's more connected to Black folks. Her parents were hippies and growing up, she lived in a teepee. I'm guessing she wanted to get as far from her whiteness as she could.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I'm gonna add this and then I have a brunch engagement. I think its important for us to remember that the Civil Rights movement wasn't pioneered exclusively by black people. White people have always played a role in advancing black culture.

    Yes, some of those efforts were disingenuous and came as a result of people seeking to enrich themselves at our expense; but I need for you all to remember that white people fought slavery too, and white people died during the civil rights era in order to ensure that you would be able to eat where you choose, send your kids to a decent school, for you to earn a living wage, and for you to be able to afford the luxury of a decent roof over your head where you can sit up here and cast judgment on somebody you don't even know.

    Rachel Dolezal made one mistake: she lied. But she doesn't need to be crucified for that. We've all made mistake and presented ourselves differently than how we truly are. That woman is trying to live just like you are and she also is trying to raise a BLACK SON in the middle of a lot of confusion, uncertainty, hate and resentment.

    Give her a break.

  • hottlanta

    Rachel show us the box you checked when you apply for a car or home loan. Did yo check the white box for the white rate or the black box for the black rate. Inquiring minds wanna know.

  • Look@m3

    LMAO. Sums it all up. once you have been over looked for jobs you know you are qualified for, prejudged, profiled that's when you know this melanin ish is LIFE. This systematic racism is life! So I too can't find sympathy. Too many of my people are suffering from mental illnesses, hurt, pain, grief as it relates to systematic racism and oppression. Some checked and some unchecked and as soon as you get checked our mental illnesses aren't celebrated on Time Magazine so whatever!

  • Quitedeliteful

    I got no love for Rachel. She gets no love or breaks from me. I hope her books flops. She lied, presented herself as an African American woman and profited off of that. Now that she's found out to be a liar and a fraud she wanna bitch and moan and complain.

  • hottlanta

    Are you scolding us with this white people helped yall get ahead so give her a break. Those white women were real good in picking those maids up in their car during the Montgomery Boycott. They could have stayed home and clean their own homes and paid the maids until the boycott was over. For every good white person that helped us 1000 black died so the help math doesn't add up. Take your pipe and stuff it.

  • Ro

    preach!

  • Look@m3

    I never got a break when I was overlooked for several jobs. Where is my break? I never got a break recently when I went to a restaurant with my family and was overlooked by 3 white families who came in after me. I never got a break when I was profiled in the Guess store In North GA Premium outlets, the same outlets Oprah was profiled in. So Im sorry I am not in the cutting slack or giving break business when it comes to this I cant get a break on being black, qualified and know it, but overlooked by someone who still working on their college degree! Nope.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Transracial author Rachel Dolezal says transgender people face less abuse than she does.

    She still doesn't get it and that is my problem. Stop trying to find an answer to an issue that has never and will never have an answer....you are claiming Black- that in of itself makes you a leper. Just attaching Black to it makes it wrong.

    Prime example- ACA is so great now to folks, but the republicans purposely named it ObamaCare to tie it to a Black man, knowing that folks would hate it just because of its connection to Black.

    Gay issues will always have precedence over Black issues, and as a mother of a Black man, you, Rachel need to gain an understanding or you will do your child a disservice.

  • Coco

    But her getting so much coverage nationwide and even outside the US is white privilege; her lying about her life story and stealing stories from black women and making money off it is white privilege. This is woman has the "whitest" privilege ever.

    I saw a meme that said you know she isn't really black by the amount of black men that come to her defense. I agree with that 100%.

  • Coco

    Black pride is denying your parents who raised you and posting a picture with a random black man calling him your father? She lied that her parents beat her up for being dark skin, Yes dark skin lol.
    Black pride is lying about racism that didn't happen to you and filling a false police report?
    black pride is getting a full body tan? Lol,
    black women always get told we don't love ourselves for manipulating our hair, but when Rachel does it, it's black pride?

    She's making money, that a real black woman wouldn't make talking about her true experience.

  • Look@m3

    Thanks for sharing. THIS IS NASTY!!!!!
    Looks like he ether trying to make her out to be a liar or he is lying because the stuff she is saying he did to here...my goodness. She needed to flee back in '07!! I don't know how she managed to stay that long after dealing with all of that. This is going to be a nasty one!

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Well, I'm confused. Are you making Rachel a job offer because it sounds like you're confusing her life experience with your shopping experience.

    Racism is racism. White people's racism just has more punch because whites tend to have more influence over the controls that affect our daily lives.

    This is one woman. She's not responsible for you getting bad customer service at an outlet mall.

  • Coco

    She's not crazy, she's exploiting her fake blackness. And white media is helping her privileged a$$

  • Look@m3

    It says age 12-17 I don't know if she can go here.

  • Coco

    What's wrong with it is that a black woman could never do this and make profit of it or get so much coverage. That's white privilege, she's still in living it, tho claims to be black.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Its generally a waste of time debating with someone like you--a person who doesn't know anything at all about facts or history.

    You have a plantation mentality. This woman has nothing to do with any maid in Alabama. You sound really uneducated and even worse, you sound bitter.

    And you're projecting your issues. You probably lost a man to a white woman and now you hate all white women. That's your right but it still doesn't change history: white people played a role in the civil rights struggle, and any historian will tell you that.

    With that said, Rachel Dolezal could have went on with her life and lived a privileged life of a white woman because in America, white women are always gonna have it easier than black women. She didn't have to assimilate into black culture. But she appreciated the beauty of being black in America and my guess is she has more understanding of what that means than you do.

    Sit your ass down.

  • SpiceGirl

    annnd....her problem, not mine..... perhaps she will get to feel what we experience on a daily. truly don't care

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Her parents said they never lived in no damn tepee! Bwhahahhahahaaaa that bish still getting you senseless blacks! LOL I can't.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    So let me get this straight. Rachel Dolezal is an outcast because she appreciates black culture; T.I. is a hero because he raps about flooding YOUR neighborhoods with cocaine and cheap drugs.

    Do you think the Koreans you spend all your money with in order to buy an endless supply of hair weave has any appreciation at all for black culture? Obama was YOUR president and he completely ignored black people his entire time in office.

    Y'all need better heroes. And you need to stop defending the indefensible. That crack head man destroyed an interstate; he's not a victim. I don't care what wasn't supposed to be under a bridge--he wasn't supposed to mess with it. Grown people know right from wrong. Just because a store is filled with stuff doesn't mean you can steal any of it.

    The way some of y'all use logic explains why we are the weakest ethnic group in this country, and the most politically and economically inept.

    Please stop wasting your brain cells on stupid causes and issues.

  • Anunnaki

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    So I just googled the word "Transracial" cuz I have never heard of such a term. It would seem that the term came about because of this chile right here. But I have another word(s) for it "Wanna Be"

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I think a lot of black people are using Rachel Dolezal as a vessel to express their frustration with white people in general. That's the only explanation for the kind of anger she's drawing from the black community.

    Too bad you're not as angry with these rappers who are marketing their music to white audiences with lyrics that call brothers niggers while talking about killing other black men while simultaneously flooding the hood with cheap dope.

    Its also too bad that all this black pride you show in the comments section doesn't extend to your shopping choices; how many of you go out of your way to support black-owned enterprise?

    Its a waste of time discussing certain topics with a lot of black folks because some of you are hopelessly lost and content with it.

  • Benjamin

    I can't believe she stayed that long either. That man is crazy.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    This is a next step or new step for People who want to be a different race. When I was growing up white girls/teens that liked and dated black guys would hang around black girls and tried to "talk" like black people. Using the same slang and even trying to copy the way black girls sounded. It was annoying because they always sounded extra. It was an act and they were intentionally using improper English to "sound black". They did everything they could to be "black" . Some of their parents tried to put a stop to it . Some changed as they got older. There were those that married , dated and had children with black men. They never changed and always stayed a part of the black community. They never used the word transracial but they said they considered themselves black. I guess a few were accepted . The Kardashian/Jenner coven took a different approach . They don't try to talk "black" but like Rachael they changed themselves physically to have the body of what they consider a black woman would look like. What they think black men desire . They copied the hair too. But they are not going as far as Rachael by saying they are transracial . I feel like she won't be the last woman or man to do this. I believe several races, and ethnicities are watching how this plays out. My hope that she would just get a job and go sit down ( quietly) isn't going to happen ?. She could use her education and experience to get a job but I believe this is her new vocation, being a transracial activist. ?

    I know but he's accepted.. He is winning "Women of the Year" awards, cosmetic lines and shit.. The other day I was cooking and KUWTK was on. I thought it was an old ep because I heard Bruce talking.. I walk into the living room to see his big ass with a dress on just talking away in that deep ass Bruce voice....lmao!!! I mean he's not even dedicated to getting a feminine voice and no one says anything.. ijs..

  • MistaO

    She is correct.

  • Concerned

    How come when other people use examples you tell them it's not related to this specific woman, but you do the exact same thing?

    Just curious

    She isn't the first to do this, she just put a name to it. I'm going to get chewed out for this but people of many races have tried to assimilate into other races . Asians have surgery to make their eyes round and crease their eyelids to look more ( white) American. Many Asians and Latinos have changed their first and even last names to sound more American . Those that already look ( white) American have distanced themselves in every way possible from their race and have kept it from their coworkers , friends , even spouses and their kids. Even the children may not know their true ethnicity. Blacks are not immune to this. We passed as whites for years. Oprah did a show on this years ago. There was a man and woman who had no idea that they were black. The great grandparents of many children never disclosed they were black. We don't like to admit it but many blacks have had their noses made smaller, skin lightened, hair straightened to look what, more European . I don't dare say white!! We say we have the right to put in straight fake hair, dissociate with the black community, marry white, lighten our skin, and change our looks. We can't change our DNA anymore than Rachael but what's the difference? We have made to feel inferior so many times that many have and doing the something similiar if not the same thing as Rachael without putting a name to it! Many if us have benefited from equal opportunity act. I know I have checked the box that said I was black. I knew I was benefitting from it I wasn't lying but I am sure there were whites equally qualified or better for the job that I received because I was black. I'm willing to give her a break IF she can be truthful on her application now , she is white . If she qualifies for a job now and checks the white box but feels black I don't care. I do wished she would just sit down somewhere and someone would hire her. Not just because I'm tired of her , but because many people are close to being hyprocital . As I said they have done something similiar as her but are mad at her for being so vocal , determined , and as I said putting a name to it. Plus she wrote a book and is making money off it.

    As long as Rachael says she is white but identifies as black I see no reason why she can't move forward. Quite a few people know her story so she might as well be honest. She should just use her experience and education to get a job. The book tour will end but she may get a movie deal . I wouldn't be surprised! Eventually people will tire of this story and she will need to get a job. Save your coins Rachael and live your life. I don't understand her but she isn't budging .

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I saw one about a man trying to look like a lizard, a woman trying to look like Barbie, and a man trying to look like an alien. They are getting face implants to have horns, tatoos to replicate scales and skin colors to look like whatever they want to become.

  • Dee

    At least the puffy faced becky didn't have to go through what blacks went through for getting caught "passing" back in the day. Bye becky!!!

  • Justlooknout

    Just CRAZY

  • YellowSauce

    is this trans racial thing a thing ? because if so SHE MAY have rights ... I only know a bout MY mental disorders lol not too sure of anybody else but she just might have a lawsuit or 2 ....EVERYBODY ELSE has rights and so I feel she should be able to be who she wants to be

  • TristaT

    All I got to say is that ANY Caucasian that gives up WHITE privilege to be African American SHOULD be welcomed because I, for one, don't think that I would have (and yes, I am black).

  • Saywhite

    Wow, thanks for telling me all these things about myself as a black woman, I didn't know the brothers owned planes and ships to bring in the dope, I didn't know I didn't shop black on purpose, I didn't know that I hated the rappers lyrics, but I do want to become a white women, would that be ok with you.

  • Malcom Flex

    She'll be ok. Millions of black males ready to wife, defend and protect this white woman.

  • Dee

    Black women too. Knee-grows.

  • n1kk1a

    Always!

  • Malcom Flex

    I see mainly black males caping for her like crazy. Pathetic.

  • Look@m3

    Continue being confused because you are just as delusional as she is for trying tto give her a break for a mental disorder. My point was clear and because your weak ?$$ comprehension skills are on a 3rd grade level doesnt mean im holding her responsibke for a profiling experience, it was to justify why im not giving her a break!

    If it was her and another woman id say the same darn thing. They gets no breaks from me so you and her can go check yawls arses in the nearest mental institute and break that. Foh.

  • Look@m3

    How dare you tell someone they have a plantation mentalitiy when yoy on here trying to get people to five a white girl who wants to be black slack for not knowinf her identity. You sound like a straight uncle tom house negroid!

  • Look@m3

    There it is i knew there was something wrong with this fool. So now a black woman lost a black man to white woman because they disagree with your weak minded arse. Go jump off a bridge!

  • Look@m3

    Peter Piper ATL is one. He seem to be jumping at the opportunity. Captn Save a *&^&

  • teather

    If she were doing this because that's how she really felt, it'd be one thing. But, she's doing this for the same reasons everyone does everything these days, for attention. Did you mothers not hug you? Did your fathers completely disappear or was he there and just ignored you? There are many questions to ask. She gets just as much of a pass being blight as she would being white. You never give up being white; she just figured out a way to stand out and be recognized, no matter what. She KNEW this story would be incredible. How many other white women in the world identify more with black ppl? We all have friends like that. She's nothing new at all. Nothing to talk about here.

  • WminPhoenix

    A white woman born in lily white Montana is still playing this charade that she is "Black". Ok Rachel, Halloween and April Fools Day is passed, and you are still white!

  • monique

    Can we ignore her already? Stop giving her attention and notoriety.

  • CigarsNRum

    White women did this in turn if the 20th century new Orleans. They called themselves octoroons because black women were getting too much business in the brothels. This is not new at all. It is just history repeating itself. There are several books that discuss this in depth. All written by white women on how many passed for black in Storyville and Biloxi.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    To an extent I understand, but on the positive side it does actually expose some of the struggle of blacks. She IS white and they aren't doing anything for her, won't hire her for jobs, look at her in a bad light. If you step back, you can kind of see that her privilege is only that she has media coverage - and that comes from the high profile job she HAD w/ the NAACP. They only show her fail or at her worst.

    Think about it

  • Coco

    She's not getting a job because she's a liar, and nobody wants that kind of drama at work especially since she's an educator. She's not exposing anything, everything she's saying BW have said before, nobody cared then or now, nobody is taking seriously (even tho she's making money).

    Personally I'll never see anything positive about her, she reeks white privilege and is using blackness as mean to have some kind "struggle" to get pity and make money in a way that a real black woman could never.

  • Gigi

    Exactly. Blacks who passed lived in fear of being discovered. Truth usually came out posthumously. They certainly were not getting book deals and favorable press.

  • Gigi

    Or culture bandits. Whites have been doing this since they crawled out the caves. She ain't doing nothing new. They really are unhinged enuff to believe they can "out black" us.

  • Gigi

    Thats not pride. It's appropriation. It's a more effective way to plant spies in black society. She's the inverse of the spook who sat by the door. She's the casper who sat at the bbq. Taking notes and names.

  • Gigi

    I find this an interesting supposition since over 90% of the world is NON white but nobody says going to predominantly white schools is a negative b/c it doesn't reflect the real word which is closer to the truth.

  • EMILY POST

    Racial imposters lol in American they make tons of money ?. Cultural appropriation of African American art lifestyle has made people go from rags to riches....

  • chris

    It's crazy the things we choose to get angry about and the things we don't.

  • chris

    Black people don't even want to be black so this white woman don't make sense to them.

  • softness1

    It's funny how when black people pass for white people don't make a big deal of it. It's more acceptable, but the idea that a white person can want to be black is startling, ..There are a bunch of celebs that are actually mixed with black like Jessica Alba's husband (he'd prefer to be thought as spanish, but his pops is black and his moms white) Jennifer Beal, Vin Diesel, etc... They never mention being black until it's found out. I was shocked to find out that Slash from Guns and Roses, mother was darker than me.. She's a black woman!!!! They were a bit racists back in the day.. Ijs

  • January Jones

    She claims she is a black woman yet whines like a white one. Yeah ....ok b*tch.
