What do Donald Trump and Rachel Dolezal have in common?

This is a week for self proclamations. Yesterday Donald Trump announced that he is running for president. He is the self-proclaimed greatest businessman to walk the face of the earth. At least according to his own opinion. He gave a rambling speech that managed to insult some ethnic groups and other right thinking people. He has the ability to suck the air out of the room, and no matter what outrageous statements he makes the media will be there to provide airtime and a platform. Yesterday Rachel Dolezal showed she is no slackard when it comes to getting media coverage. She identifies as black. Yes, she was born white, but she is denying that part of her existence. She has said she lived in a tee pee, and she has since admitted lying about that. She had claimed she had been to South Africa, and she lied about that too. She has attended a HBCU, and sued the school in 2002 as a white woman, but now she is proudly a black woman. A “sista”, but only when she wants to be, but why the Trump comparison? She has managed to make her fantasy a national story. This week she has managed to do the impossible. She has out-Trumped Trump. Never have I seen so much coverage of a non story. She was a local chapter president and now she is more recognizable than the national president of the NAACP. By the way can you name him?  If you put NAACP president in Google Rachel’s story comes up. Yes it is a good week to be Rachel Dolezal.

    I won’t cheat and look. Is it still Ben Jealous? I heard he was stepping down but I don’t know when that was to take effect. No doubt if it isn’t him, it’s some other victicrat who will continue the sad and boring saga of how white racism is the biggest problem facing black America today.
