Black and White Like You and Me
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 6-15-2015 | MOTUS

Posted on 06/15/2015 6:14:10 AM PDT by NOBO2012

Welcome to post-racial America, where "reverse-passing" has become a real thing. (Thanks, Obama!) Today we return to the odd case of “Racial” (h/t Abenaki) Dolezal: the white woman who thinks she’s black.

I say stop bullying her, she has already been the victim of 8 separate hate crimes so how much more street cred do you need? I believe we’ve established the fact she’s “biologically” Caucasian-American, butt apparently in Racial’s mind she’s an African-American. As such, she’s entitled to hold the jobs that non-African-Americans won’t do: serving as President of the Spokane NAACP and Professor of Africana Studies at Eastern Washington University. And being trans-racial also entitle her to special grants, scholarships, access to special programs and all the free self-tanning lotion she wants.

If you can decide you’ve been born into the wrong gender/genders you can certainly decide you’ve been born into the wrong race. Especially now that we’ve learned that being “African-American is biological”  butt race is just a social construct. See if you can make heads or tails out of this discussion – although I warn you; even the normally lucid Tammy Bruce seems as clear as mud (no racial animus intended) here:

I thought Brian Benjamin made up the idea of race being a social construct, butt quelle surprise!  It’s a real thing:

Race is not biologically real -it is socially and politically constructed via law, public policy and social practices.

And if you can be transgendered and trans-racial I see no reason why you can’t also be trans-specious as well (as in “species” not “specious” – unless of course the shoe fits). So until further notice I have decided to be a cat. A black cat. Beware.

I remember working the midshift in a building on Lindsey Air Station in Wiesbaden in 1973-4. About 4 AM I was talking to an old lifer and we were discussing advancement and best things to be.

He told me that he’d either want to be a “Bird Colonel or a black Airman Third”

I don’t see any reason to where black face or change the appearance in any way.

Dang it, if I say I’m Asian, black, or Native American, that should be enough.

I am certainly a (Post Columbian) Native American and have documentation to prove it.
