Rachel Dolezal: Desperate for Attention and Relevance
Rachel Dolezal: Desperate for Attention and Relevance
June 16, 2019
Well, guess who crawled out from under her rock for some attention during Pride Month! Yep, Rachel Dolezal – the pathological liar and attention whore who set off a national discussion about trans*insert victim group here*ism and “racial identity” by fraudulently claiming to have been African-American for decades and even rising to a leadership position in the Spokane, Washington, chapter of the NAACP.
Dolezal now claims that aside from being “trans-black,” or whatever she’s calling it nowadays, that she’s also bisexual in a tweet about Pride Month – an obvious attempt to claim membership in yet another minority group.
Translation: I haven’t gotten attention in a while, my book was a fail, I’ve been charged with welfare fraud, I’m still pretending to be black, even legally changing my name to Nkechi Amare Diallo, but that’s no longer enough. No one is paying attention to me… oh, wait! It’s Gay Pride Month! I’M BISEXUAL, Y’ALL!
Just remember, this is the same hair-braiding, skin-coloring, desperate-for-attention fraud that also tried to capitalize on Michelle Obama’s memoir by comparing her self-published cry for recognition to Obama’s Becoming.
Dolezal is amusing enough on her own, her desperation to somehow compensate for her failures as a human being palpable in her transparent attempts to join Victim-of-the Month groups. She has been trying to pretend she’s every race possible in her effort to paint herself as a “success,” despite her alleged “minority status” before she was exposed as a charlatan. Dolezal was quite obviously in dire need of ensuring that she was never accused of white privilege in her work as a college instructor and NAACP leader. She was dying to make sure that her pathetic “career,” if you can call it that, was “enhanced” by claims of success despite seemingly insurmountable odds.
But Dolezal’s sad attempts to appropriate the victimhood of others is indicative of a bigger problem – the tendency to inflate one’s accomplishments by adding “challenges” and “difficulties.”
It’s no longer enough to simply achieve. Now, one must dress up those achievements in “pretty outfits,” indicating minority status or uniqueness.
It’s no longer enough to merely do one’s job. Now, one must parade one’s “victimhood” to exaggerate just how special one’s performance is – to transform the banal into the distinctive.
It’s no longer enough to create. Now, one must inflate the value and merit of said creation by inventing some kind of “challenge” that had to be overcome to create cette oeuvre.
This is the same mentality that has colleges discriminating on the basis of race in an effort to increase “diversity” and stomp out “privilege,” and SATs adding an “adversity score” in a misguided effort to “level the playing field.”
The idea is that the color of your skin, your upbringing, the location of your home, your “gender identity” and other factors should count more toward your achievement, because you had to somehow work harder and overcome adversity, making your accomplishment mean more than others’ efforts on a similar scale.
It’s a foul, bigoted idea that supports the assertion that characteristics one cannot control somehow make your work and your achievements “worth” more or less. It provides an excuse for failure. It allows miserable mediocrities out there to claim more skill and aptitude without actually exhibiting above average abilities. And it promotes the evil concept of racial inferiority.
LOOK WHAT I ACCOMPLISHED DESPITE MY SKIN COLOR/SEXUAL ORIENTATION/GENDER IDENTITY!
The claim of achievements that one hasn’t earned based on skin color, sexual orientation, or gender identity is just as evil as the appropriation of these accomplishments (or earnings) based on the class into which one was born.
Welcome to Marxism, boys and girls. That’s what these twisted people promote, and today’s snowflakes are feeding off these principles like rabid vampire bats.
That’s what Rachel Dolezal is doing by trying to appropriate the victim culture.
She grew up in a white household, with European ancestors. She has not a trace of African blood.
“She’s clearly our birth daughter, and we’re clearly Caucasian — that’s just a fact,” Lawrence A. Dolezal said in an interview from his home in Montana on Friday. “She is a very talented woman, doing work she believes in. Why can’t she do that as a Caucasian woman, which is what she is?”
Why? Because her “talent” wouldn’t be nearly as special if she was white. That’s the kind of mentality the social justice zealots have been promoting of late. White people’s achievements don’t mean nearly as much as people’s of color, and straight people’s work and accomplishments are dwarfed by the exploits of LGBTQUEMAHDIERMARGERD+ community, merely based on where these individuals stick their genitals and what plumbing they feel entitled to at the time.
Awards aren’t awarded based on accomplishments, but rather on skin color, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Don’t believe me? Just look at what science fiction’s Hugo Awards have become!
So, Rachel Dolezal, who is the social justice zealots’ epitome of the privileged white “Becki,” refuses to work and achieve on her own, but rather chooses to appropriate others’ victimhood to prop up her rather average intelligence and talent – much like she tried to do in her hamhanded attempt to exploit Michelle Obama’s book to sell her own self-published tome of vomit.
And since her previous attempts to prop herself up by pretending to be black didn’t work, she’s now claiming to be bisexual in yet another effort to pretend to be a member of a protected class – to gain recognition (as I highlighted in my screen capture of her tweet) and relevance.
Rachel Dolezal is a symptom of a larger problem, and the sooner we recognize it, the better.
