Why lie about it???? Lies and lying is not of the nature of our Creator...the Supreme Being....true leadership....must be true to oneself...and those who follow you....to be one with our creator and other sisters and brothers....all untruths...evilness....eventually come to the light....we...as a people..are the true.....lightbearers....we the original....real people of the earth...who can, in no way, mix....be apart of....dwell amongst...integrate...or be like....in ANY way.....that which is non-original....anti-nature...and just plain evil and destructive....anything that is against truth....is AGAINST us....so likewise...we should be against it....our victory....is their demise....so be it

Sorry, but I must disagree Lisa, she's only claiming to be genetically Black, not that she totally understands what it means to be a Black women, in America.


Rachel Dolezal affair highlights distinction between race, ethnicity

The case of Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP leader who is accused of misrepresenting herself as black, has thrown into sharp relief the distinction between genealogy and lived identity

The distinction between race and ethnicity, between genealogy and lived identity, was thrown into sharp relief Friday when it emerged that the parents of Ms. Dolezal, the president of the NAACP chapter in Spokane, Washington, accused her of falsely portraying herself as black ...

This is just the beginning of a bigger conversation for the nation, a TV show and perhaps a movie, however, before comparing the transgender/transsexual thing to this case, deep-ancestral genetics should be considered.

Modern Humans Came Out of Africa, "Definitive" Study Says

We are solely children of Africa—with no Neandertals or island-dwelling "hobbits" in our family tree, according to a new study.

Scientists who compared the skulls and DNA of human remains from around the world say their results point to modern humans (Homo sapiens) having a single origin in Africa.

What is genetic anthropology?

Genetic anthropology is an emerging discipline that combines DNA and physical evidence to reveal the history of ancient human migration. It seeks to answer the questions, "Where did we come from, and how did we get here?"

DNA studies indicate that all modern humans share a common female ancestor who lived in Africa about 140,000 years ago, and all men share a common male ancestor who lived in Africa about 60,000 years ago.

Exactly, unless someone can reasonably and accurately explain the origin of White folk apart from the African bloodline; but so far that hasn't been done, convincingly.
