Why Rachel Dolezal embodies White America's fears: http://t.co/UnoCPOpZXW pic.twitter.com/gvZAK24N6d— The New Republic (@tnr) June 16, 2015
Rachel Dolezal represents the greatest fear among white American liberals: The fear that people will realize what a pack of lies they are built on.
The article: "Rachel Dolezal Embodies White America’s Fears" in the white liberal magazine The New Republic is a weird piece of projection that originally was defensively titled: "Rachel Dolezal And Caitlyn Jenner Are Not The Same."
Whew, for a minute there I thought Kim Kardashian's stepfather had a racial identity crisis on top of his sexual confusion. Author Sarah Marshall has written three consecutive pieces on the subject of Jenner, which represents a half-month's output for her. She has a nice imagination, attacking Hannibal Lector as a transgenderphobic fantasy.
In this piece she just lost it:
Ultimately, Rachel Dolezal’s story seems like a story about fear. It expresses the fear all white Americans have, or should have: fear of acknowledging our own cultural history as creators of trauma and inflictors of abuse; fear of acknowledging the guilt inherent in this narrative, and, even more staggeringly, taking on the task of alchemizing guilt into something useful. Dolezal’s story also expresses, in its most redemptive moments, the love and respect she truly seemed to have for African-American culture — and the weakness that allowed her to see it not as a culture she wanted to use her white privilege to advocate for, but as a shelter in which she could hide from herself.Which begs the question: If she was so full of white guilt that she pretended to be black, why did she sue Howard University and claim she was discriminated against because she is white?
I have not inflicted abuse on anyone. By the time I became an adult, not only had slavery ended but the Civil Rights Acts of 1957, 1964, 1965 and 1968 were the law of the land. It was mandatory in college to take black history. I am pretty sure at 61 that the real problem among liberals is a pining for the good old days when their cause was just. Now their cause is as fake and forced as an Africana studies professor who pretends she is white in order to advance academically.
The real problem for liberals is Rachel Dolezal is a joke. And we know how they cannot take one.
