Watch especially the last 2 minutes. You may not have heard about this as it's trending mainly in the USA. Ms Dolezal, head of a chapter of the black civil rights organisation is asked if the is indeed African American.
As it turns out, she is born of caucasian parents, the man she said is her father is actually not related to her, and now the racial harassment reported by her is called into question. She now has resigned from the NAACP. It's a story you don't come across every day.

Why are people do nasty? She had problems i think, her brother assaulted a black person, this is her way to cope with her life. Is she harming anyone?

I think it is. She lied and betrayed people's trust knowingly, and took advantage of her assumed blackness. The same woman sued her college for discriminating against her white race over ten years ago. She's been called out and that's only right.

It's right she left her position in the NAACP because of the way she got it. But I don't like the all out media war either. It's quite inhumane and savage. She was raised in a very dysfunctional house, very oppressive by parents in a christian cult. The children were home schooled and could not watch tv, and they were beaten. I think Rachel is to be admired for breaking free fro all that and for making in successful career in human rights.

She seems like a person who was given lemons. And tried to make lemonade from it.

There are plenty of coloured people who want to be white, and make efforts to lighetm their skin or even lie about their ethnicity. Why is it such an extraordinary thing when it's the other way around. Yes you cant change your race but plenty of people have tried.

She shoulda been exposed. She basicly profited masively where people in the black community can not.
