    In the Spirit of Hair,


    Rachel Dolezal's #naturalhair politics


    [​IMG] By Clarence PageContact Reporter


    In this summer of raw identity politics, it is ironically appropriate that everyone's favorite fake black woman, Rachel Dolezal, is back in the news.

    Dolezal, you surely recall, was the local NAACP president in Spokane, Wash., who was exposed last year by a local television station and by her estranged parents as a white woman who was only passing for black.

    Or as she might put it, she has been identifying as black since around 2006 in much the same way that Caitlyn Jenner identifies as a woman, despite having the same male body that she had when she was Olympic medalist Bruce Jenner.

    Dolezal was back in the news with the announcement that she would be headlining a Labor Day weekend rally in Dallas called the Naturally Isis Braid-On, Economic Liberty March and Rally ...

    ... Brantley, who owns the Institute of Ancestral Braiding in Addison, Texas, says she didn’t know Dolezal’s controversial background before booking her. According to the Daily Beast, Brantley saw Dolezal’s mad braiding skills on television and thought she would be a great addition to the event. But members of the natural hair community aren’t buying it, considering Dolezal only got on TV in the first place because she was caught lying about being a black woman. We wouldn’t have known she was good with hair if she wasn’t pretending to be something she’s not. Dallas resident Kerin Rodriguez, who has gone to Brantley’s events before, says that she saw the hair guru post something to Facebook in May asking whether or not Dolezal should be involved “on a team of organizers who would help plan a natural hair event and march that will take place in Washington, D.C., next year” ...
