Race Dysphoria

I defend absolutely Rachel Dolezal's decision to identify herself as Black. I, myself, am a black man trapped in the body of a middle aged white European man. Negritude has nothing to do with skin colour; it’s a state of mind, a sense of being, a striving for belonging. That I was born with nordic / alpine European physical characteristics is an accident of nature. My soul is Black. 

My brothers, do I not feel the cruel welts from the rod of servitude, the pain of iron and taste of blood around my throat and wrists from your brutal confinement? Is my tribal spirit not crushed by the savage conformity of your ghost race? The very rhythm of my heart like the pulse of my native forests, a drum and bass backtrack to my true being?

This salaried servitude is like a yoke upon my back, and though my MD, my Overseer, may call me Herbert and ask me to the pub, let's see how he copes with having to call me Kunta and having to make proper provision for we transracials at the next Christmas lunch. Oh yes, we are Legion! Nigel, or rather Hui-Ah, in accountancy identifies as Mandarin Chinese.   

Though my body is that of a weak and feeble middle manager, I have the heart and stomach of a king - probably Bokassa, or Zulu king Goodwill. Right, must dash - time to get down wid de bludz.

What a *bizarre* story that was. And how did she get away with it for so long? Yet another self-loathing, hand-wringing apologist, with nothing to apologise for.

I share your pain. Although I have the outward appearance (and tackle) of a redblooded male (and some say a lecherous one at that) for many years I have identified as a laydee and as such demand the right to use the laydeez changing rooms at the municipal swimming pool. Since the borough council (Leader: Deirdre Spart) encourages everyone to affirm and live out their identities in a safe and nurturing environment with equality of esteem I am at a loss to know why the laydeez all scream.

I am forced to conclude they have not undergone their equalities training yet.

In these times anyone can be anything they want to be - just declare it, loud and often.
Coney Island (0720) is right to ask how she got away with it for so long. Were her colleagues gullible or really wanting her to be black because she's articulate?
On another point CI is wrong about "nothing to apologise for - she's got too much to apologise for.

Can you imagine the conversation when Rachel Dolezal meets Natalie Bennett? Oh to be a fly-on-the-wall at that one!

I have every right to be a Ginger if I want, despite having no ginger gene inside.

I'm a ginger-loving lesbian trapped in a man's body - well I must be, as I love women and we all know it's sexist to suggest heterosexuality is normal nowadays.

The problem is that instead of coming clean and saying just how stupid the whole race thing is, how affirmative action is just racist the other way round, she's waffled on like social 'scientists' do about complete and utter twaddle.

@ James Higham

Are you sure you haven't got a little bit of Ginger inside you, Biggles?

Yup - Anyone can be whatever they want, and demand the dosh to support their flight of fancy. I for instance am the only true Muslim. All the others are fakers and their God is a phoney. Don't submit to them. Submit to me and send me your Jizya quick.
Send only real money, mind, none of that phoney-fakey money. I know the difference between real money and your credit sorcery which is haram. Allah is an Englishman, I am his prophet and cash is the only acceptable homage. Also government job would be acceptable, also your daughters & granddaughters if young and chubby enough.
I believe my own myth and am shocked and appalled that you do not, you oppressor, you.

Mike S - I meant her apologising on behalf of white people for being white being white. She, as you rightly point out, has plenty to apologise for!

That young American woman is a liar. How did we as a society used to deal with liars; I cannot remember because the deafening roar of cultural marxism has been so prevalent for so long and clouds my memory of saner times.

Frankly I think she may have done a deal of good for sensible analysis of what until now has been written about racism and the slavery, because like her most of it is fanciful nonsense written to appeal to social justice warriors of limited academic rigour.
Let us hear of the abominable treatment of Irish and English slaves in Bermuda and Jamaica and compare their treatment to the mostly benign conditions in Southern USA where upon emancipation most "slaves" wished to stay exactly where they were. Lets also talk of indentured servitude of the poorer English folk in early America.
Let us analyze why after more than a century after emancipation many USA blacks are still clinging to the fantasy that a great wrong was imposed on them all, and let us analyze who were the major slave traders in Africa.
I say congratulations Dolezal, now lets talk about the people making a rich living out of mostly fictional suffering.
