Today’s INSANE ROUNDUP of Rachel Dolezal Revelations!!
I haven’t had this much fun on a story in a long time. So earlier we reported that Rachel Dolezal had given up her office as president of the Spokane NAACP after members threatened to protest her next meeting and started a petition. And we thought the story would calm down a bit.
Boy were we wrong.
Here you go, dear reader, the FIVE insane stories that came out about Rachel Dolezal JUST TODAY!!
1) There’s video of her saying the N-WORD!!
OK this is the least scandalous of all the stories, but I thought it was interesting because it’s under a series of Rachel Dolezal talking about her experiences as a black woman. Which she isn’t. During one folksy anecdote, she says the n-word!!
The people at Complex Mag were pushing this as a scandal, and they were rightfully excoriated in their comments section.
2) She plagiarized a famous painting!!
Embattled Spokane NAACP President Rachel Dolezal is facing further accusations that she has appropriated racial culture–this time in connection to her art. People online are drawing attention to the similarities between one of Dolezal’s paintings, The Shape of Our Kind, and The Slave Ship, an iconic work of art painted by J.M.W. Turner in 1840.
Since Sunday night, more than 2,000 Twitter have tweeted about it, declaring she plagiarized Turner’s work.
Copying art isn’t necessarily illegal, and some artists have even built their careers on producing copies. But Dolezal’s art—some of which is currently up for sale on eBay and which has focused on issues related to African-American history and culture—is entangled in the already-hot debate about her racial identity.
3) She once claimed her BLACK father was beaten by a COP
From the Daily Mail:
The interview, from earlier this year, has Dolezal sharing stories about her black family, including one in which she details her father’s ‘exodus’ from the Deep South after he assaulted a police officer.
She goes on to claim he became a cop himself in San Diego after also serving in the Marines.
‘My dad’s exodus, the great migration to the North from the Deep South where they left on the midnight train because a white officer harassed and threatened to, was about ready to, beat his dad with a billy club and he whipped around and actually slapped the officer to his knees,’ Dolezal said while being interviewed by Taylor Weech for a podcast of her father’s journey.’
‘They got out of town on the midnight train because as a black family in the deep south if you had any kind of a negative altercation with a white cop where you stood up for yourself it was gonna go badly for you.’
It’s just incredible how far her delusions went.
4) She’s unemployed now, but lied about how employed she was!
Not only did Eastern University fire her and take her off their website, but they say she lied about being a professor!
SO if anyone needs to fulfil racial hiring quotas, she’s available!!
And LAST but not LEAST!!
5) She actually sued a college for discriminating against her and FAVORING BLACKS
This chick has made a career out of demanding that society favor blacks and discriminate against everyone else, but she actually sued a school for doing just that!!!
From the Smoking Gun:
Rachel Dolezal, 37, who headed the NAACP’s Spokane, Washington chapter, sued Howard for discrimination in 2002, the year she graduated from the historically black college with a Master of Fine Arts degree.
Dolezal, then known as Rachel Moore, named the university and Professor Alfred Smith as defendants in a lawsuit filed in Washington, D.C.’s Superior Court. During the pendency of the civil case, Smith was chairman of Howard’s Department of Art.
According to a Court of Appeals opinion, Dolezal’s lawsuit “claimed discrimination based on race, pregnancy, family responsibilities and gender.” She alleged that Smith and other school officials improperly blocked her appointment to a teaching assistant post, rejected her application for a post-graduate instructorship, and denied her scholarship aid while she was a student.
The court opinion also noted that Dolezal claimed that the university’s decision to remove some of her artworks from a February 2001 student exhibition was “motivated by a discriminatory purpose to favor African-American students over” her.
Holy reverse double-triple twist racism dive, batman!! What the hell is rattling around in this lady’s brain?!?
And it’s only Monday. God bless you Rachel you FREAKY weirdo!!
