Does it matter if Rachel Dolezal is black or white?

Rachel Dolezal's parents say she is white. She considers herself black. And social media has its own take on Dolezal's identity.


... Rachel Dolezal, is a known figure in Washington state civil rights movement, but since the story of her dishonesty about her racial background broke, her name has become a worldwide social media trend ...

Chassi Jay Gee wrote "The consensus appears to be that in pretending to be black, Rachel Dolezal didn't hurt anyone. For the record, that's untrue.

1. She filed fake police reports for racial discrimination and harassment (some of which she mailed to herself) that didn't happen at a time when hateful actions against black men, women and children are often not investigated or referred to as such. The FBI was investigating the "crimes" she reported.

2. She received a full scholarship to Howard for her Masters under this ruse, a scholarship that she likely received over another much deserving and honest black, woman applicant.

3. She was hired as a professor to teach Africana studies. Anyone in academia can tell you how slim the opportunities in academia are for black women; this professorship more than likely came at the expense of another black woman.

4. Based on information shared with social media, she used her power as a professor to mistreat black women who took her classes.

5. A white person teaching Africana studies in blackface? What the hell?

6. She was elected to a position of leadership as local NAACP president under the premise of being a black woman. (Note: white people have held leadership roles in these organizations before, but as white people and not fake black people)

7. She not only appropriated black identity, but while carrying on with this charade, exploited adopted black brothers and created an identity as a "victim" which turned into a rather profitable situation for her."
