Hey! Elizabeth Warren!June 12, 2015 Tim WorstallJohnny Foreigner31 CommentsMeet Rachel Dolezal. You might have something in common. previousGuess, just guessnextTwo things worth a knighthood 31 thoughts on “Hey! Elizabeth Warren!” dearieme June 12, 2015 at 7:08 pm Rachel is a social construct. Ian B June 12, 2015 at 7:12 pm She might have done it for cynical career reasons. Or she might be one of the growing number of white people who have been taught to be ashamed of what they are. Which makes one wonder how many f2m transgenders are and are going to be caused by male shame.

Theophrastus June 12, 2015 at 8:25 pm Will racial ‘transitioning’ become fashionable? Skin-darkening drugs, iris dyes, etc? Rachel Dolezal made herself into a simulacrum of an octoroon, much as Bruce Jenner is making himself into a simulacrum of a woman. Identity is entirely subjective or socially constructed until you are rejected by the identity you want to join, at which point you award yourself the non-binary identity of trans-sexual or trans-racial.

Dongguan John June 13, 2015 at 1:14 am I hate that “We’re all from the African continent”, errrm no I’m not, I’m from a shitty little market town in Northamptonshire. Why not go the whole way and say we’re all amoebas from the prehistoric ocean or whatever. Ian B June 13, 2015 at 1:28 am I’m from Kettering, nigga.

Zimbabwe is giving up its own currency? It is going to move to a “multi-currency” system (i.e. I assume that means the US dollar)? I could have sworn that I heard you can now exchange 125 quadrillion Zimbabwe whatevers for five dollars at the official rate. BigFire June 13, 2015 at 1:51 am I still have a 100 trillion zim dollar bill.

Dongguan John June 13, 2015 at 2:41 am Ian B… so am I! Gamecock June 13, 2015 at 3:26 am So NAALCP is racist. Why would it matter what her race is?: SHOCKING! So Much for Subtlety June 13, 2015 at 3:31 am Ian B – “She might have done it for cynical career reasons. Or she might be one of the growing number of white people who have been taught to be ashamed of what they are.” I don’t think that she has done it for career reasons – although going to Howard would show a deep commitment to this project. More likely to be shame: Dolezal was born in Lincoln County, Montana to Ruthanne and Larry Dolezal. She has an older brother, Joshua. When she was a teenager, her parents adopted four black babies. She was home schooled and then went to Jackson, Mississippi for college, receiving her bachelor’s degree from Belhaven University in 2000 and her master of fine arts degree from Howard University, a historically black college in Washington, D.C. in 2002. From 2002 to 2006, her parents and adoptive siblings lived in South Africa as Christian missionaries, but she has never been to South Africa. Sounds like a cry for parental affection to me. From an early age they seem to have shown where their preferences lie. “Which makes one wonder how many f2m transgenders are and are going to be caused by male shame.” I have said before that I think the trans phenomenon is due to men being taught women are pure and men are just pigs so that the only way some of them can enjoy sex with women is as women. As “women” their preferences are not disgusting but pure and natural. So Much for Subtlety June 13, 2015 at 3:40 am Gamecock – “So NAALCP is racist. Why would it matter what her race is?” In fairness to the NAACP they aren’t racist. After all George Zimmerman, the man who pioneered trans-racism before it was cool, was Black enough to be head of the NAACP. But the NAACP refused to support him. Wanted him jailed even. But what do you expect of a society that was establiswhed by White Ethnics[*] and did not elect a Black President until 1975. [*] Yes, Ironman, that is a euphemism.

Interested June 13, 2015 at 12:47 pm Tim Newman – snot. Edward Lud June 13, 2015 at 10:29 pm BiW, you’ve outdone me. I’ve been using Anglo-Norman-Celt. I reckoned it gave me everything from Scandi snow-whiteness to borderline Asiaticness, without actually requiring me to say I was anything but fish-belly white. Now you’ve upped the ante, I’m minded to go with hom. sap. Gamecock June 14, 2015 at 2:50 am The only solution to the race “problem” is to forbid talking about race. Interested June 14, 2015 at 9:21 pm @Gamecock Too many people’s livelihoods rely on the racism industry for that. I think you’d find that most of the contributors here couldn’t give two tits what race their neighbours are. I would myself much prefer to have a decent Somalian or Pakistani or Chinese family living next door to me than a feral white underclass family. So Much for Subtlety June 14, 2015 at 9:53 pm Gamecock – “The only solution to the race “problem” is to forbid talking about race.” Somalia wanted to do some nation-building and so they prohibited anyone talking about their clan. They were all Somalis together. So they started referring to their “ex-clans”. Interested – “I would myself much prefer to have a decent Somalian or Pakistani or Chinese family living next door to me than a feral white underclass family.” That is begging the question though isn’t it? It is not a fair or reasonable choice. Because that is not the option you are being offered. Ben S June 15, 2015 at 7:19 am I look forward to people tying themselves in knots trying to explain why Dalzel is a ‘bad’ person, while Brucelyn Jenner is a ‘good’ person. That is, if they even notice the incoherence… It would even be fun to make a collection on these ‘explanations’ somewhere on the interwebs.
