Rachel Dolezal shows the NAACP jumped the shark
Thank you, Rachel Dolezal, for showing how far the country has come racially. Black people no longer are passing as white people; white people are passing for black. That is a sign that being black is a bigger advantage than being white. She is not alone. Ben Jealous, the former president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. His skin is lighter than hers yet he embraced his black heritage, and not his white.
Dolezal claimed to be black and became not only the president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP but a college professor, teaching African-American Studies. She also called police in a series of racial hoaxes. Her parents say she has mental problems. I say she has a tanning bed.
The NAACP has defended her and jumped the shark in the process.
Conservatives are enjoying this farce, calling her transracial in the way Bruce Jenner says he is transsexual. However, just as his chromosomes are male, just as her genes are white.
Dolezal shows it is time to end this charade of oppression. Yes, there is racism in this country. A lot of it. However, racism is a two-way street. The opportunities are equal. Maybe not the outcomes; the black community is way too tolerant of crime, worrying more about the black murderers in prison than their black victims in the cemeteries. Just about every minority in this country has had to overcome a criminal element. Italians had their gangs of criminals, as did the Jews, the Irish, and every other ethnic or racial group. But teh road to equality in America is not following the criminal path but the one that is based on hard work, enterprise, and education.
So thank you Rachel Dolezal for lifting the curtain on the black race baiters
