Rachel Dolezal: Entitled, "transracial" or mentally ill?


Rachel Dolezal is a white woman who is also President of the NAACP in Spokane, Washington. It was recently revealed by her own parents that she is a white woman and not a black woman as she has led people to believe. She has been living as a light skinned black woman for several years. Her whole story is a giant mess. My question is... Is this woman entitled, mentally ill or just trying to live as the woman she feels she is inside? Some have even defended her saying she is "transracial" much like a transsexual person can feel they were born with the wrong gender assigned. What say you?

    Yes, light skinned blacks have historically passed for white. They were born looking white enough to do so, and back then it was for survival. Most black people cannot pass for white but a white person can always tan and perm.
