The Fake Black Woman
What's woody wood, grasshoppers?
I know I'm maaaaaaad late on this issue on some Colored People Time shit...which is no pun to what I'm about to talk about...I wanna touch on the Rachel Dolezal fiasco right quick
You know shorty...she's the former chapter President of NAACP who paraded around as a Black woman for years even though she's really white...funny shit, ain't it?
Okay, for one, I don't believe she's crazy...
...that's too much of a cop out
She sued Howard University for discrimination before she decided to her call herself Black, and that alone rules out anything that speaks of mental illness
For two, Black people are something else
I take that back...
...NEGROES who think Rachel is doing us a favor by denouncing her whiteness are something else
But seriously, Black people, talk to me, or at least think about what I'm about to tell you
Why do you NEED Rachel to want to be Black?
Will that make you feel better about yourself?
Will this white woman sense of mimickry validate your life?
I already know Black people are awesome and amazing...popular culture copies the Black American style every day (Life would be better if society was more in love with Black people as whole rather than just the culture, but that's another issue)...I'm already in love with my ancestry...I never needed white America to wear my culture, literally as skin, to feel good about US
Why should a woman walking around in blackface who lied about everything under the sun be the cost of humanizing us to the world?
Headz are quick to overlook the fraud and deception because somehow her frontin' about who she is makes them feel loved...get yourselves together, please...what she did wasn't love, admiration or flattery...she's a damn con artist
Simple as that
She would've been MORE EFFECTIVE at fighting for Black people as a white woman because it shows that white folks aren't afraid to walk in the front lines to combat systematic racism and discrimination
The made-up stories about her life as Black woman also hinders the fight that Black women go through for real
I mean, damn...
...it's bad enough that society already think we're paranoid about the shit we go through on a regular basis
And on that note, I'm out
Peace and Afro Grease
