After Facing Anti-White Discrimination Rachel Dolezal Pursued #BlackPrivilege


According to her 2002 lawsuit, Rachel Dolezal (who then identified as her true self: the very Caucasian Rachel Moore) believed she had been discriminated against for being white, and that this discrimination had not just cost her a teaching position and scholarships, it meant the removal of her art from a student exhibit.

The suit was eventually tossed out, and Dolezal was even forced to reimburse Howard University more than $3500 in court and other costs. There is no question, though, that in Dolezal’s mind she had been discriminated against by a historically black college for the sin of being white, blonde, and freckle-faced.

What’s a girl to do?

According to her interview Tuesday on “The Today Show,” Dolezal decided to “identify” herself as black. Even after being caught, she will continue to “identify” herself as black.

From what we now know, in the apparent belief more opportunities would open up for her, Dolezal went to extraordinary lengths to masquerade herself as a black woman.  She changed her name, darkened her skin, frizzed and darkened her hair, and serially-lied in order to enjoy Black Privilege.

Until the mask was ripped off last week, from the looks of it, it worked.

Dolezal flourished as a black woman. She became the president of the Spokane, Washington, NAACP. She earned a teaching position in Africana Studies at Eastern Washington University. She even won the chair of the Spokane Police Ombudsman’s Commission.

In the academic-grievance-government industry, by “identifying” herself as a black woman,  lily-white Rachel Moore from Lincoln County, Montana, did pretty well for herself.
