    It is always great to see non-Blacks respectfully Idolizing Black Culture. I bet they must suffer a lot, within their 'non-Black' real life of openly praising Black Culture.

    Rachel Dolezal Plays an Exhausting, Self-Centered Victim in Her Netflix Documentary
    The Netflix documentary, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, shows that the white woman who pretends to be black still doesn’t get it

    ... There have been many words written about Rachel Dolezal, the infamous white woman who has pretended to be black for what seems like a century or maybe that’s just how long my headache feels. I did not think words were necessary for this woman after the writer Ijeoma Oluo profiled Dolezal in The Stranger last year.

    Why I accept Rachel Dolezal’s commitment to her African-American identity

    ... To me, as an African-American, her widely complimented skills at styling black hair, like her now-ended NAACP leadership, is a sign that she feels fully committed to her black identity. Most of the rest of us have yet to be convinced.

    A new film sheds light on why Rachel Dolezal tried to leave her white past behind, without quite explaining why she still insists she really is black.

    Watched her story on Netflix last evening.
    I could only see her as being mentally unstable.
    I do believe she hated her white parents and wanted to hurt them by becoming Black. That she thinks she can BECOME Black is the insult and the problem.
    Rachel is a self centered, narcissistic, nut case with 2 young adopted Black boys that hate the suffering and harassment from school students.
    The have to tolerate their mothers insanity.
    That they are being affected by her lie doesn’t have an affect on her. That she ignores her sons feeling is narcissist.
    I feel most sorry for the boys.
    I hope her 15 minutes of fame are up.
    She’s an embarrassment.
