FAKE BLACK RACHEL DOLEZAL: ‘I’M A TRANS-BLACK. I’M NOT WHITE BECAUSE RACE IS A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT, NOT CODED IN YOUR DNA’….POOR LIB!
Tired of your color? Fake black Rachel Dolezal has a solution – it’s called trans race. According to Dolezal, ‘race is a social construct’ and not coded in your DNA, therefore needs label: “I feel like the idea of being trans-black would be much more accurate than ‘I’m white.’ Because you know, I’m not white.”
( Heat Street ) Former NAACP branch president Rachel Dolezal, who falsely claimed she’s black and still believes she did nothing wrong, is living on food stamps and expects to lose her home next month.
“I’m not going to stop and apologize and grovel and feel bad about it,” she said in an interview with the Guardian. “I would just be going back to when I was little, and had to be what everybody else told me I should be—to make them happy.”
Dolezal, who also used to be a professor, is currently struggling to find a job and is missing her rent payments. According to her, she applied for well over 100 jobs, but has received no offers, even from a supermarket. The only offers she received were in porn and reality TV. Her friend helped to pay the February rent, but it’s unlikely she’ll make the payment for the next month.
“I do think a more complex label would be helpful, but we don’t really have that vocabulary,” said the former Africana studies professor. “I feel like the idea of being trans-black would be much more accurate than ‘I’m white.’ Because you know, I’m not white.”
The “trans-black” woman made headlines in 2015 after her parents revealed she wasn’t actually black. She stepped down from her positions following the scandal and admitted she was “biologically born white to white parents” but insisted that race isn’t “coded in your DNA.”
“It wasn’t like the honest thing to do is say, ‘I’m white’, because race is a social construct,” said Dolezal to the paper. “And this gave me this great sense of internal freedom: I wasn’t actually all fucked up. I was actually on to something this whole time.”
To pretend being black, Dolezal regularly sunbathed, used traditionally black hairstyles, claimed her ethnicity as “black” on employment and medical documents, and responded to questions about her ethnicity with “mixed,” adding that her mother was white.
