CALLOUT: For all those who are African-American who feels that Rachel Dolezal fits in with the black folks, by trying to be black in all, please stop!

Stop the pain, the hypocritical mindset, the droned out brainwashing, the so-called transracial attitude, the so called having these pretenses of others being black in which they are not, STOP IT!

This is exactly why our community is so messed up!

Basically there are pretenders/wannabes and those who are keeping it 100. I would rather be real than fake in which I believe that Rachel is doing. Ok, so she again, got her degrees, and educational aspects in all, or lack thereof, but to say that she’s black and trying to appease with the NAACP, is crossing the line. Now if she were to tell the truth ahead of time way before this slip up actually happened then there would be none of this. And she says it all started with the age 5 with brown crayons drawing a picture of herself. Well, I hate to say that when you’re 5 years old, you really don’t know much. You were a pre-schooler! Hello! I don’t remember what I did at 5 years old. My parents do. My late grandparents did. God rest their souls. Also, for her she sued Howard University back around 2002, all because of her being white. The scholarships and other educational aspects she was some what offered back then, she complained against them because she was white. And she wants to be identified as being black. SERIOUSLY?!!!

This is more like a blackface in reverse. And many of those who riding with her are just delusional and again, drone minded!

I’m sure many of us probably had to see the Today show in which she was interviewed by Matt Lauer. To me, that was a slap. You got two white folks, on national TV in the morning talking about being black. Don’t forget, she lied about  getting the job and she resigned! Flat out. It’s not about her being white. It’s about being a liar and having a leadership position with the NAACP in Spokane, Washington.

On the weird side of this, there are those who feel that she’s doing the right thing. Namely for some in the black community. I read about on the Huffington Post of what NBA Legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar written in which he felt that the black community is better off because of her efforts. SAY WHAT?! Kareem writes this from the article:

Perhaps some of this sensitivity comes from her adoptive black siblings. Whatever the reason, she has been fighting the fight for several years and seemingly doing a first-rate job. Not only has she led her local chapter of the NAACP, she teaches classes related to African-American culture at Eastern Washington University and is chairwoman of a police oversight committee monitoring fairness in police activities. Bottom line: The black community is better off because of her efforts.

Stop right there!

The last line that he said that the black community is better off because of her efforts. REALLY?! When was the last time that Rachel Doelzal ever helped the black community in Milwaukee?! The very same Milwaukee that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar dissed back in his day when playing for the Milwaukee Bucks! Lot of you don’t know this. Ask anyone in Milwaukee that knows this story and will give you a second opinion. Nothing against his contribution to the game of basketball, his NBA Titles, or his skyhooks that got him famous. But the thing is, he almost like every other black player who came through Milwaukee to play, had a second opinion of leaving! This is not new. Plus also there have been those of a Keri Hilson, and of all folks, Melissa Harris-Perry had to come to her side of opinion. For the #nerdland side of things, REALLY?! And this is where the word “transracial” comes in and I’m begging to think that it will not exist even more. Word was Michael Jackson was “transracial”, but he was black making all those hits and busting records!

I want those whom are non-black who actually read this, or those who feel that she’s doing a service of being apart of the black experience. First, the black experience is not some sideshow. It’s not some thing that you can’t turn off. It’s not something that makes you feel segregated or being racist or having this assumption of racism. Many of you probably copied or took notes or critique us on our swagger, our upbringing, our joys, the way we dance, step, play instruments or design our clothes. Or a way to be like us in general. In the words of WWE’s Bad News Barrett (or King Barrett) , “I’m afraid I got some bad news!” Guess what, you are not black! Period! No matter how much you copy or sample, or try to get a pass, you will never get the “black experience”. I’m just saying. Not to down anyone, but it’s the flat out truth. I don’t have the white experience, the hispanic experience, the german experience, the french experience, the asian experience, the chinese experience, the japanese experience, the Filipino experience, or any other experience in the world. Even the Native American Experience. I don’t have that those, but black experience, I get and still getting. That I know.

And as far as the Rachel Dolezal viewpoint of dismissing her parents because she feels she’s black, she is wrong on that! Guess what. You’re parents made you and that’s that! No matter how grown you get, you will still be made by your parents!  You can protest, whine and moan, but your mommy and daddy made you and there’s nothing you can do about it! Even if you get a sex change, part of that change will never be altered in which from the very start, was between a man and a woman making a child. Already, Rachel’s parents had called her out on her lies. Her siblings, or other family members probably done the same. Not because she’s white and has African-American siblings. But the true reason of what she is not: Being black in America.
