Dolezal’s ‘blackface’ and identity politics: Just plain wrong

Liberals are using feelings to condone Rachel Dolezal's blackface deception. But science says she is white despite how she "feels"

LOS ANGELES, June 15, 2015 — It is wrong to judge a man’s race by the color of his skin. That is racism and must be whitewashed and blacklisted.

Using vanilla extract when perfectly good chocolate extract is available is obviously bigotry and proof that nothing has changed since 1863.

In further news, even Americans not completely sick of talking about race are tired of Rachel Dolezal and her enablers. The head of the Spokane, Washington NAAPC was outed as a lily-white Caucasian. She darkened her skin and got a Jheri-Curl perm afro to look black.

Dolezal was exposed when her completely Caucasian parents blew her cover.

The normal reaction to an employee lying on their application is a sanction ranging from censure to termination. The NAACP is standing by their white leader.

For those who still do not understand how race works, there are two different perspectives. Conservatives, often attacked for being anti-science, rely on science. Race is a form of pigmentation. The darker the melanin content, the darker the person.

Black people have darker melanin than white people.

For liberals, race is about feelings, attitudes, and beliefs. Black conservatives such as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas are not authentically black. Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is derided as being a “cornball brother” because he is not “down with the cause.”

Any black people caught speaking properly, dressing professionally, getting good grades, and rejecting liberal policies are immediately accused of “acting white.”

Sometimes this leads to invented races. George Zimmerman was Hispanic his entire life until he killed Trayvon Martin. Then all of a sudden he became the world’s first white Hispanic.

When comedians showed up on stage wearing blackface, they were properly derided as engaging in racially insensitive behavior if not outright racism. When Rachel Dolezal does it, it is considered an acceptable act.

Liberals explain away these acts of verbal and physical contortion under the phony guise of context. This is how blacks using the n-word in addressing other blacks can be given a free pass while white people using the word are properly deemed racists.

Context is a fancy liberal way of saying that any behavior is acceptable as long as a liberal does it. The same behavior is unacceptable if a conservative or mild critic of liberalism engages in it. This is nothing but ideological bigotry.

The ends do not justify the means. Rachel Dolezal is not a sympathetic figure. She is also not black. Clarence Thomas is black. He is authentically black. He is as black as any black man on this Earth.

Bill Clinton was not the first black president just because he grew up without his biological father. To equate blackness with unstable families an insult to the many black parents raising their children properly.

Hillary Clinton is not black just because she occasionally speaks in a slow Southern dialect. Her grating fake accent is patronizing to the many normal blacks with perfect diction.

Barack Obama is half black and white. He is not Jewish, despite putting on a yarmulke (Jewish skullcap) and claiming that Barack means Baruch. It does not.

Elizabeth Warren is not an American Indian just because she has high cheekbones. To say otherwise is to accept that a large nose makes one Jewish or a generous booty makes one black. Hillary Clinton has a large posterior and she is whiter than a caddy on a Greenwich, Connecticut golf course.

People comfortable in their own skin do not need to lie about the color of that skin or their heritage.

People who can read the labels on the crayons in a Crayola box can understand this. Those who obsess over identity politics deliberately refuse to learn a lesson as simple as black and white.
