The Return of the Boom BlackFace

July 20, 2015

1. If you don’t get the reference in the title go listen to the album it is referencing right now. You will not be sorry.

2. If you haven’t checked out the RachelsMixTape hastag on Twitter, go do it right now because it’s pure comedy gold.

Back? Good, here’s hoping that inoculated you against the bullshit this woman is spewing, She did a Vanity Fair interview, because sure, why wouldn’t they give her more mainstream attention? She’s still claiming that she’s black and denying that she every wore blackface. Because of course she is.

And she’s writing a book. Hey remember when I wrote this “she is going to keep benefiting from her lies. She’s going to write a book and become a white “expert” on Blackness.”

THAT IS TOTALLY HAPPENING.

This is like a goddamn horror movie. She just keeps going like a blackface zombie.

OK yes this picture is from The Walking Dead but you get the idea.

OK yes this picture is from The Walking Dead but you get the idea.

And we are nowhere close to done. Go back and read the linked sentence again. Writing the book is just step one.

Dolezal is still unapologetically identifying as a black woman, still sure that any confusion about her singular story can be explained, still sure she’ll be back in the movement as soon as people stop misunderstanding her.

She also claims that she never wore a costume. She makes this claim while still wearing the fucking costume. because she’s a horrible person and an unrepentant racist. It is the function of every person of integrity, and everyone who cares about equality and, you know, basic truth, to say that and type it whenever her name comes up and then ignore her and everything about her.

    I can’t listen right now as I’m at work but will listen afterwards tonight.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but this is the black woman, that worked for the NAACP a black rights organisation, that was outed by her white parents, as being white (are you keeping up?) and is now denying she’s white? I heard about this and just assumed people thought she was black and never thought to ask her, but if she’s now saying she’s black, when her family are white, she’s their “natural” daughter, ie not adopted, the daughter of both parents, then how does she think she can claim to be black??? From my time in the NUS, they say you can identify as xyz, if those things affect you, so say I grew up with a black brother in a mainly black neighbourhood, I could identify as black as if be affected / influenced by the same things etc, ie Eminen could be considered black under these thoughts.

    From what I understand, she has a black adopted brother, married a black man, worked for civil rights for black people in America, and would still be doing that had she not been found out. I’m not sure that makes her a racist, it may make her delusional or a fetishist for black people (is that a thing?), but if she’s working to help part of society, then I think no foul no harm, but it appears she’s writing a book to profit from all of this? Excuse my cynical thinking here, but I’m thinking who outed who?

      It real does make her a racist.

        Well how? Did she actually say she was black or was it just assumed, and her job was to help black people, and if she wasn’t doing that properly then she’d be fired right? (This story hasn’t been covered more by UK news so I don’t know anymore Ryan I did when I first posted).

          She is still claiming to be Black. She insisting that she is Black, even. After her parents have made it clear that she is not in any way Black and after it came out that she sued her historically Black college for discrimination on the basis of her whiteness.

            Well, there’s not much more to add. I have heard of someone who became black almost overnight in the 80’s (some kind of illness I think, but he was still white even though he looked black (if that makes sense)).

            She does seem to be odd (understatement slightly), and maybe in need of psychiatric help.
