Let me understand this...the NAACP, believes in the rights of gays to marry even claiming that they too are a minority with civil rights similar to the civil rights of Black people, but DOESN'T affirm the right of a White woman to live as a Black woman?
They have gone past CRAZY!!!!
Ever since Rachel Dolezal, former head of the NAACP, was put to shame for "identifying" as a Black woman, the news media, and many Black and White pundits, have followed suit to display their own arrogance and double standards in the area of individual "personal identity".
Most of the critics have reduced Dolezal's actions down to a desire for monetary gain or some other weird and awkward advantage that she could have received by calling herself Black. Many of these same pundits, are even hypocritical about that as well. the fact is that I know of no "perk" in America given because one is Black. If there are any, please spell them out for me specifically so that I can take advantage of them. I do know however of the many disadvantages of being Black in America. One only need look at nearly any local news cast to see and find that out. So the argument that Dolezal had some type of grand scheme to position herself to make more money and be more famous by Blackness is absurd and certainly can't be proven by any evidence or material fact.
Reconditioning Of The Mind
I would certainly not have appeared on America's #1 HYPOCRITICAL morning news segment with America's #1 HYPOCRITE, Matt Lauer. Lauer is not worth it and seems to only bash women that he doesn't like. We all remember "Ann Curry" don't we?
Lauer is abrasive and comes across very phony in his news segments. In the interview posted below, Lauer does no differently with Mrs. Doezal. He is very abrasive flying under the cover of "public commentary" asking her:
"When did you start, deceiving people, and telling them that you were Black, when you knew their questions were pointed in a different direction? When someone said to you, are you Black or White, you didn't say "I identify as Black" you'd say, "I'm Black." When did you start deceiving people?"
HOLD THE PHONE....
Let's look back just a few days to an April 27th "Today Show" interview with Kim Kardashian. Remember, Kim spoke about the 'courage" of her "Step-father" Bruce Jenner, as he transitioned from a man to a woman...Remember Kim stated that Bruce was:
"Bruce is the most HONEST, and he has the biggest heart, and I am really happy for him that he is living his life the way he wants to live it, and that he has found inner peace and just pure happiness. That's what life is about, I don't know what life would be like if you just weren't yourself."...
In response to Kim's assessment that Jenner was "honest", (sugar, spice and everything nice) Matt Lauer had no criticism, and only wanted to know was how long was the familiy's "adjustment time" to the idea of his gender transition.
In other words, even though Jenner, lived as a man, and was one that Lauer "admired" for years, there were no starling words of condemnation calling either Jenner or Kardashian "deceivers" or "deceitful"...For anyone wanting to see that interview please click HERE
Not All Talk Show Hosts Are The Same:
Whoopie Goldberg on "The view" recently stated to the chagrin of the audience:
“I have to believe she feels the way she feels just like Caitlyn Jenner feels like she’s a woman,”...“I don’t feel she’s doing anything anyone else hasn’t done. If someone feels that they’re this, they have every right to pursue it."
As I stated, the audience was critical of her statements and she had to defend her position regarding the issue. The good news is that she left her hypocrisy at the door regarding the issue. The bad news is that she is still yet blind regarding moral choices, values and decisions and their impact on society. The latter, I can deal with at a later time, but the point is that she is correct.
Conclusion & Video
Some claim that Mrs. Dolezal is "pretending to be Black", while at the same time affirming gay transition as a new frontier and heroic decision. VIDEO
If BRUCE Jenner is given some type of award or commendation for living his whole life as a man and then pursuing his thoughts of being a woman by changing his body, then one MUST commend Dolezal for having the nerve enough to pursue her identity as well.
Richard Stellar on his blog, "The Wrap" poses the same question..."If Jenner can identify as a woman, why can't Dolezal identify as Black?" In the article he points out that many Black folk feel slighted when transgenderism draws a comparison with the transracism of Dolezal. I would venture to say that most Blacks offended are not offended when gay rights advocates use the same civil rights legislation that Black people fought for, to affirm their desires to be opposite gender individuals. Too many of them see the argument as the same, including the NAACP...In other words, Black people, who do not stand against cross genderism only show their hypocrisy when confronted with the argument of a White woman who chooses to live as a Black woman.
