'Black' NAACP Leader outed as white woman

Recommended Posts

Thank you for a non argumentive discourse. With all this said, I hope this change occurs sooner than later. Both of my sister's are adopted and black and it got a little tough to hear their black friends get mad at them and say they acted white simply for articulated speech and college desires. I know that this is not something that is more than a stereotype of blacks, but for me watching my sister's it was very real and definitely effected how I look at these issues.

 

And thank you for your non argumentative discourse. This does happen (bolded above). Just keep in mind African Americans are not monolithic. Different African Americans with a different life experience and ideology do not feel that way or find it strange or abnormal.

 

Also, keep in mind, American Society, which is class and capitalism based, is probably the most competitive society on earth. Any edge will be used for advantage, and that is one of the things that keeps all sorts of stereotypes and generalizations alive and well.

I definitely don't, not sure which point was wrong though. I actually do think there is a difference between peoples behavior somewhat hardwired due to different levels of testosterone etc. but that doesn't seem like something PC friendly people would want to admit. If it's the white fetus thing, that definitely sounds very dumb but not as dumb as a white kid thinking hes black.

 

While hormone levels aren't hard-wired, I think it's highly individual, I do agree with you. There have been many studies, and some will be offended by that, some will not, that suggest black males may have higher levels of testosterone. Said excessively high levels, lead to violence and aggression. Steroid users become neandrethal like and violent, and women beaters (on the down low) etc.

 

I definitely belive in this. The questions is just what are the number. I would guess, a large portion of habitual criminals (of any ethnicity) do have rather high levels of testosterone. Now, I'm pretty bad ass in the gym and I'm fine, so that blows the theory :> but seriously, here's an interesting read: http://www.nytimes.com/1990/07/17/science/aggression-in-men-hormone-levels-are-a-key.html

Nature tends to balance, this higher test leads to higher prostate cancer rates. Can't win for losing ...

Woman who posed as black makes plea deal in fraud case

 

A former NAACP leader in Washington state who was exposed in 2015 as a white woman pretending to be black has reached an agreement to avoid trial on charges of welfare fraud.

 

Rachel Dolezal, who changed her name to Nkechi Diallo two years ago, was charged with two felonies last May.

 

Investigators alleged she failed to report tens of thousands of dollars in income from her memoir, "In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World," and other sources, so she could collect $8,847 in food and child care assistance from the state.

 

The Spokesman-Review reported Friday that Diallo entered into an agreement with prosecutors March 25 in Spokane County Superior Court to repay the money and complete 120 hours of community service to avoid a trial.
