Her 15 Minutes of Fame Should Have Run Out a Long Time Ago


But in the 21st century, you can be famous for a long time if you do and say stupid things.Image result for rachel dolezal

Heatstreet:

It’s been just over three years since Nelson Mandela’s death, and South Africa will soon welcome a new historic figure calling for unity: Rachel Dolezal.

The controversial former NAACP leader, who was outed as white in 2015 but who says she “identifies” as black, is headed to Africa to speak in favor of a non-racial society.

“Race is a lie,” Dolezal recently told the BBC. “How can I be accused of lying about a lie?”

Dolezal, who recently changed her name to Nkechi Amare Diallo, will speak on April 19 at the first inaugural meeting of a group called the Quest for Non Racial South African Society Dialogue.

Might want to stop in, before the first lecture:

    If she was in favor of a non-racial society she wouldn’t identify as black. She wouldn’t actually spend much time thinking about race at all. She needs race so she has somewhere to express her identity. Which isn’t actually hers at all.

    **“Race is a lie,” Dolezal recently told the BBC. “How can I be accused of lying about a lie?”

    If she herself thinks that race is a lie, how can she identify as black? Isn’t by loudly identifying as a black woman to the extent that she joined an organization specifically related to one race pretty much saying that she thinks that race is a truth? Unless she was just taking money from stupid people trying to make a living off of the lie. But if that were true, more or less everything she said immediately after was a lie.

    In any case, consider the legend about the broadcast of War of the Worlds, and people thinking that aliens were invading. If a person asked why everyone was freaking out, and someone replied that the radio announced that the Russians were launching a nuclear attack.. that would be a “lie about a lie.” It would be more harmful than the original “lie” because it was considerably more believable. The idea that a lie about another lie can’t be as harmful as the original is obviously stupid. It can be better, or it can be worse. But it can certainly be worse. And basically what she did if she considers race a lie – is to lie about herself so she could profit off of people who believed the first lie. That isn’t noble. If anything, it’s pretty terrible.

    I mean, I’m not advocating putting a lot of distinction between races. I’m saying that she is among those who put a lot of effort into putting distinction between races, even to the extent that she wasn’t satisfied with the one she was born to so decided to pass herself off as another. She didn’t even have the flimsy family lore/high cheek bone excuse. She entirely manufactured that identity out of hair dye, a perm, and leftover extract of John Boehner.
