Lots of people have trouble coming to terms with their complete and utter whiteness. At most colleges, you’ll find at least one pasty nerd decked out in a red FUBU jacket and matching red track pants standing outside of a dorm, struggling to sell his self-recorded mix tape, and hollerin’ at down shawties. I know I choose to ignore my total lack of blackness when I hit the dance floor, or the stage at the Bahamas for a competition.
I should’ve won that $200 off my next vacation with Student City. I was ROBBED, I tell you.
But the president of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP took it to a whole new level. Rachel Dolezal, a born white girl, disowned her parents, did some serious time in a tanning bed, got a violent perm, and set out to live a new life as a proud black woman.

Rachel’s parents said she distanced herself from them and has not talked to them recently.
Rachel said she does not consider her biological parents her real parents.
Who were her real parents? The STREETS, probably.
But this lady isn’t alone. There are lots of people trapped in bodies with racial characteristics that aren’t compatible with who they are on the inside. Like Godfrey Elfwick, a self-professed “Genderqueer Muslim atheist. Born in the #WrongSkin.”

Much like transgender celebrity Caitlyn Jenner, it’s only a matter of time before the transracial Rachel gets her own TV show. When she does, don’t commend her for being a courageous and revolutionary woman. Commend her or being a courageous and revolutionary BLACK woman..
