Rachel Dolezal in earlier interview: My black father had three attempts on his life by whites while in the Marine Corps.
Former Spokane NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal spoke publicly today, saying she sees herself as black, despite her white heritage.
Report by Hot Air:
Via Truth Revolt and the Daily Mail, here’s the best evidence lefties have that Dolezal isn’t the racial equivalent of Caitlyn Jenner. The basic story she tells might well be true: Albert Wilkerson, the man she passed off as her dad, did serve in the Corps and did migrate north as a young child after his father “had a confrontation with a police officer” in Birmingham. But he isn’t her father, of course, and the fact that she went so far as to steal his history to back up her own claim of being black is a step that Jenner hasn’t taken — and couldn’t take, realistically, given her fame. (Imagine her regaling a stranger with stories of the first time young Caitlyn got her period as a young girl.) Dolezal lied willingly to support her racial narrative, not just about who she is now but about who she was growing up. Jenner didn’t. Although that makes me wonder: What percentage of transgenders attempt to “pass” with fake histories and what percentage are candid about their transition? Are the former as culpable for inventing a false biography as Rachel “I identify as black” Dolezal is?
