There are opinions about Rachel Dolezal pretending to be a black woman coming from all quarters – everybody’s got a point of view. It is worth mentioning that this is the biggest story on white media with CNN running the BREAKING NEWS banner every fifteen minutes. I might add that white folk are flabbergasted!!!
Let me start by saying everybody in the world knows that when you say America, it is code for white supremacy! Having said that let’s be clear white folks know and understand this because they benefit from it. Maybe this is why there is such an uproar surrounding this story and the reason many are so offended that one of their own would leave the fold. Not to mention that Rachel claims it her life’s mission to work for the betterment of black people.
The Spokane NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal, who was called out by her real white parents telling the entire world that she has falsely portrayed herself as black for years; more than ten years, in fact. This story could be as simple as this; she knows what white folks have done to black people and continue doing is a disgrace to humanity. Some have said she lied, and others say this act is a ruse. To that I say maybe more white folks should do the same if they are to do it for good – as it appears Rachel is doing. Some say she meant well.
History has shown that white folk have infiltrated every organization black people have start or belong too. So, maybe she is an agent provocateur! We have seen black people pass for white, but this pitiful case is not for the same reasons because she had no need to do so. Therefore, she does not get a pass because what she did is disrespectful, at best, and comedic on so many levels. Black folk know it is not much of a stretch that the obsession with black people by whites is as old as black people by virtue of the fact they stole us from Africa in the first place.
There are clear examples of pretenders in today’s in all aspects of American life. Case in point, the music industry white girls have co-opted black culture in ways that I would call a disgrace. Further, we can go back to Elvis to see this kind of robbery. There are many examples going back to the days of “race music” where white folks have pretended and emulated black people.
I saw a FaceBook comment where someone white compared this to Bruce Jenner’s decision to become a woman saying “a person can be anything they want to be”. This lie goes back as far as the one they told when they said, “All men are created equal” and then wrote Negros are 3/5ths human! So just when you think we’ve seen it all – wrong!
Dolezal posted a message that says “As you probably know by now, there are questions and assumptions swirling in national and global news about my family, my race, my credibility, and the NAACP …I have discussed the situation, including personal matters, with the Executive Committee.” Really, this is an explanation!
Let me close with this: whiteness is an attitude! Most white folk who enjoy its privilege have no idea that what they enjoy is the hidden, which is nothing more than what I would call Affirmative Action. Nonetheless, I agree with the old adage that says imitation is the highest form of flattery! Rachel now that you have stepped in it you have to endure the backlash of you deception. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
