  1. But surely picking up stamps that have the face of a pseudo-black CM conwoman on them would be a direct insult to real black people?

    Wouldn’t it?

  2. Shurely shome mishtake here?

    “…the only work she’s been offered is in reality TV and pornography.”

    Isn’t she an example of the sort of highly-qualified professional with rare, marketable skills which command a premium in the jobs market, and so need to be paid high salaries from the public purse for providing their indispensable services lest they be lured away by a better offer?

  3. I’m surprised at the pornography offer. You would think they would not have a market she would fit in due to her colour.

  4. I feel sorry for her, tbh. Her parents were religious do-gooders who adopted African kids and it obviously screwed her up big time. Sad!

  5. Sometimes, Timmy, the jokes just write themselves.

    Somewhat on topic:

    Ever since childhood I’ve felt I was a 7 foot tall African-American with a tremendous hook shot trapped in the body of a short, rather heavy and very white guy who can’t shoot a basketball for shit.

    Who should I be suing? The NBA?

  6. From Wikipedia: “Leslie Bow, an expert on racial relations, criticized Dolezal for ‘taking the place of faculty of color by allowing her colleagues to assume that she’s black'”

    So we need affirmative action programmes for people who can’t even beat Rachel Dolezal in a straight fight for a job?

  7. “Dolezal said the only work she’s been offered is in reality TV and pornography. ”

    Wouldn’t that go against PJ O’Rourke’s thing about liberal fantasies?

  8. Do we need to add transrace to LGBTI so that it becomes LGBTIT? Or can people also biracial and I interrace?

  9. It’s strange that you are supposed to be able to change sex but not race. Progressives never cease to amaze me.

  10. RIchard – “So we need affirmative action programmes for people who can’t even beat Rachel Dolezal in a straight fight for a job?”

    Well we already have Fauxahontas, the Law Squaw, taking a prime academic job from a minority, so I am not surprised that Queen LaFakah should be on food stamps.

  11. Dennis, you stole that from South Park. I remember Kyle’s dad was ‘trans dolphin’, and Kyle was a trans-7 foot basket ball player.

    Seriously though. We are laughing about it now but I bet its a real thing in ten years’ time.

  12. The left ignores mental illness as to acknowledge it in cases like this would mean perhaps the present holy grail of the left, transgenderism etc are perhaps to just another facet of said illness.

  13. Paul Carlton – “It’s strange that you are supposed to be able to change sex but not race. Progressives never cease to amaze me.”

    But you are only allowed to change sex one way – you can become a woman if you were born a man or a man if you were born a woman. You can become homosexual if you realise the oppressive patriarchal superstructures of modern society.

    But you can’t cure Gay and become heterosexual. Even though thousands of people have done so.

  14. Gamecock – “If we all identify as black, racism is over. Y’all get busy.”

    This is Poe’s law at work. People are way ahead of you there.

    The day white Australians can look in the mirror and say ‘I am Aboriginal’ is the day their tormented country will start to heal, argues Germaine Greer

    I am agnostic on the whole subject. But I do wonder, idly, sometimes, that if we can all identify as we please, why don’t more Blacks identify as being hard working faithful husbands who like studying hard and obeying the law? There is no rule that says that being Black means doing the opposite of what middle class White people want you to. Look at the Chinese. Surely it would be easier to change culture than to change genes.

    In the meantime, we should give credit where credit is due. Hollywood has been trans-racial for decades. Look at Merle Oberon or Vivian Leigh.

  15. SMFS – why can you not change race?

    All these forms where you declare your ethnic origin, why can you not put what you consider yourself to be?

    I do not know what race you are, even what sex you are. You know what you were born as – if you can work out you are xxx then xxx is what you will be.

  16. Martin – “why can you not change race?”

    I hereby identify as Maria Sharapova’s husband. She has been a naughty drug cheat and when I get home, she may have to bend over in her lace underwear and pay the price.

    Sure, she and Tim Newman may not agree with my identification but what does that matter? Shouldn’t the world bend to my narcissism regardless of what other people want or believe?

  17. “The day white Australians can look in the mirror and say ‘I am Aboriginal’”

    6 generations removed from black chattel slavery in the U.S., slavery is as much my history as it is black’s history.

    I just happened to watch Quigley Down Under this weekend. I assume the white’s relationship with Aborigines has improved.

  18. JerryC
    Quite. Her parents taught her she was a worthless white. And it it was her mother that shopped her for passing as black. Thanks Mom! Die of cancer. Soon.

  19. Gamecock – I’m British and white so slavery is as part of my history too.
    Just one I’m not bothered about.

  20. I’m surprised at the pornography offer. You would think they would not have a market she would fit in due to her colour.

    You mean “Is it because I is Black?”

    Having seen the photographs of Ms. Dolezal as a teenager, she was literally both white and blonde enough to give Heinrich Himmler a stiffy.

    So she just needs to stop using the ultra deep bronze tanning lotion and staff off the sunbed for a couple of months and she should be set.

    Then get rid of the idiotic frizz cut and a change of name and nobody will recognise her from Adam…behind the complaints desk at Walmart.

    What this obnoxious cnut is really saying is that she can no longer get a well paid job in the field of “Professional Offence Takers” having been caught out committing race fraud and egregiously taking the piss.

    Maybe she should apply to join the American Big Brother House? That would be good for a laugh and if she gets her kit off we can see where the tan lines go. 🙂

    Unfortunately, professional offence takers like Ms. Dolezal tend to be humourless cnuts. 🙁

  21. So Much For Subtlety: “Queen LaFakah” is a magnificent effort, but pipped by the BTL comment in The Guardian which means I will forever now think of Dolezal as “Talcum X”.

  22. “Leslie Bow, an expert on racial relations, criticized Dolezal for ‘taking the place of faculty of color by allowing her colleagues to assume that she’s black’”

    I love this. A woman (presumed) complains that a position fiddled for political reasons was taken by a woman who fiddled it for political reasons.

  23. I love this. A woman (presumed) complains that a position fiddled for political reasons was taken by a woman who fiddled it for political reasons.

    She wouldn’t have been eligible for these roles (both as a Spokane chapter president of the NAACP and as an instructor at EWU), if she hadn’t faked being black, so maybe it is those organisations that are racist? 🙂

    As Tim often says “Incentives Matter” and I doubt that her “Fine Arts Masters Degree” would have got her very far without being able to twist it with the whole black victimisation angle.

  24. Sure, she and Tim Newman may not agree with my identification but what does that matter?

    I’ve discussed this with her. She’s asked about squirrel suits.

  25. Rev. Spooner – ““Queen LaFakah” is a magnificent effort, but pipped by the BTL comment in The Guardian which means I will forever now think of Dolezal as “Talcum X”.”

    Sheer genius that is.

  26. All these forms where you declare your ethnic origin, why can you not put what you consider yourself to be?

    I always tick the Other box on those forms and then fill in Green Manalishi in the text box.
