    I AM NOT BLACK!!!

    “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg came to the defense of embattled NAACP chapter head Rachel Dolezal on Monday: “If she wants to be black, she can be black.”

    Both crazy!

    I like the way she puts it as "racial identity." It sums it up quite nicely.

    Skin pigmentation is so varied - from black as tar to white as Canadian and every shade in between - that it only stands to reason that the race a person identifies with the most is the race they should be able to own.

    I was 34 years old when I moved to Miami; and for the first time in my life I saw "black" people with tan lines. I was like OMG WTF! icon_lol.gif That one experience totally changed my views on skin pigmentation. Then once I learn that very few of the darker skinned people there are African American, but instead Jamaican, Haitian, and other Caribbean natives, the idea of race faded completely and my racist Arkansas upbringing came to a halt.

    All that said, identify as any race you want to identify as. Nobody who has any experience with different races will give a fuck. icon_wink.gif

    PLUS A MILLION!

    We've all known people who don't fit our racial stereotype for them. Maybe we don't fit it either.

    Be Yourself.

    SB, You've got nothing to say.

    If you were a little smarter, you'd be embarrassed for yourself.

    The latest development from Smoking Gun. Our heroine seems to have had "a long-term, ongoing identity crisis:"

    http://thesmokinggun.com/documents/bizarre/rachel-dolezal-discrimination-lawsuit-786451

    "Following the dismissal of Dolezal’s [2002] lawsuit [against Howard U. claiming she was discriminated against for being white] (and the Court of Appeals decision), she was ordered to reimburse Howard for ... costs totaling $2728.50. During the case, she was also ordered to pay the university nearly $1000 in connection with an “obstructive and vexatious” court filing that sought to improperly delay her examination by an independent doctor.

    So, is she or isn't she? Only your docket clerk knows for sure!
