Watching the Rachel Dolezar situation unfold, I don’t know what to say on the matter, aside from what’s streamed on my Twitter feed.
The only question I pose: Why did she feel it necessary to change her appearance and basically steal opportunities and resources from actual Black women in the first place? Especially when you take in to consideration that she’s a white woman who could’ve used her privilege to educate fellow white people on how to ease the systemic burden on the Black community.
Even if she were to help mostly Black women and girls, I’m sure she would’ve made some kind of difference.
But the fact that she went to such extremes proves she’s not to be trusted.
The answer is obvious, but this seems to be a usual go-to for when white people fuck up and get called on it.
