Matt Lauer interviewed Rachel Dolezal this morning. This woman is fascinating. When asked if she was black her response was “I identify” as black. What the heck does that mean? Dolezal enjoys the beauty of blackness minus the burden, and she even has the option of jumping back to the white side if she so desires. Dolezal is sitting smack dab in the middle of two worlds. She seems firmly planted on the black side, but if push comes to shove she can be pushed back. So often we hear the terminology privilege and now we have a real life example of it, meet Rachel Dolezal.
Rachel Dolezal says she “identifies as black”…now that is privilege
