Rachel Dolezal, making headlines again in the last few weeks after she realized publicity is the best way to get her out of the situation she says she was in – with food stamps and an impending eviction – she recently also published a book, and done several interviews with the press in order to promote her new book. In a recent interview with BBC, she tells the host that “the idea of race is a lie”, and that if people can be transgender, she can be transracial – she FEELS “black”.
Dolezal now says that ethnicity isn’t biological so she can choose to be whatever race she wants.
Twitter of course went into a field storm, with liberals not even knowing what to do with themselves.
The Daily Mail reports:
Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP leader who was unmasked as a white woman in 2015, has been attacked on Twitter after claiming that the ‘idea of race is a lie’.
Dolezal, 39, claimed that ethnicity is not biological and compared being ‘transracial’ to being transgender in an interview with BBC‘s Newsnight on Monday.
Following the interview, Twitter users criticized Dolezal’s comments, accusing her of using ‘white privilege’ to make her arguments.
Dolezal, from Spokane, Washington, said in the interview: ‘Gender is understood – we’ve progressed, we’ve evolved to understanding that gender is not binary.’
She added: ‘It’s not even biological. But what strikes me as so odd is that race isn’t biological either.
‘And actually race has been to some extent less biological than gender, if you really think about history and our bodies.
‘There isn’t, like, white blood and black blood.’
Critics online said that Dolezal was using cultural appropriation to become a black woman, and that Dolezal wanted to ‘steal things from other cultures to be trendy’.
One person said that people can’t ‘become black’ because ‘at any moment what “makes” blackness can be erased’.
Some argued that the idea of being ‘transracial’ was ‘only available to white people’.
This isn’t the first time Dolezal compared acting as a black woman to being transgender.
In 2015, she likened her situation to that of Caitlyn Jenner, who announced she was transitioning from male to female in April of that year.
